isn't it interesting how audioslave and soundgarden's names are opposites? like i've always noticed this. one is a self proclaimed slave to their music while the other could be taken to mean that they cultivate and grow their songs into something greater. idk, i've just always noticed how their names correlate with each other.
The word "slave" could also refer to the music industry. All three Audioslave albums were jointly released by Epic Records (RAtM's label) and Interscope Records (Soundgarden's label) respectively. The logos of both labels appear on every release. They were uable to freely look for a record label due to their existing contracts.
To me it's the other way round, in general. However there are days that I can't listen to most of stuff Chris sings on cause it gets too wmotional for me. Then I play Audioslave. Btw I never understand the hysteria when someone expresses their opinion on the internet. Soundgarden is the best band in the world << will you ahoot me now?
I never got the animosity for Audioslave. They made meaty, back to basics rock & roll and there's nothing wrong with that at all.
Hard to escape the monolithic shadows of RATM and Soundgarden, but what Audioslave made was really damn solid in its own right.
По звучанию и особенно гитарным примочкам пожалуй, самый интересный проект их вокалиста. Подвело отсутствие в багаже хотя бы одного хита на все времена, какой имелся у Soundgarden и даже у сольного Корнелла.
Их, увы, не гоняли на MTV и Радио Ultra, в отличие от Black Hole Sun и You Know My Name. И ставив близким - они мой восторг, увы, не разделяли. По причине не слышания ранее. Видимо, раскрутка тоже важна, и чему стать хитом - решают СМИ-боссы=/.
I am always very sad to see talented people with ideas leave us, troubled, depressed, decide to take their lives while money-greedy pigs are still around us. Rest in peace Chris, your music won't be forgotten.
For so long I hoped for something new from Audioslave... But the wait is over now and it's still hard to believe. I was lucky to have seen Chris playing with Soundgarden in 2014. All left to do right now is listen to Temple of The Dog, I guess.
