    Biography

    In the spirit of the supergroups of the past, two of the most important bands of the nineties pooled their talents to create a new band: AUDIOSLAVE. On November 19th, Epic Records released Audioslave's self-titled debut album featuring former lead singer/guitarist of Soundgarden, Chris Cornell (Vocals) and Rage Against The Machine's Tim Commerford (Bass), Tom Morello (Guitar), and Brad Wilk (Drums). The album 'Audioslave' was recorded in Los Angeles at Oceanway Studios with producer Rick Rubin.

    Chris Cornell formed Soundgarden in 1985 and over the course of 12 years the group established themselves as one of the most influential rock bands of the nineties selling, over 20 million records worldwide. David Fricke writes in Rolling Stone, "On their '94 master blast, Superunknown, Soundgarden blew a big, black hole through the burnt-boogie angst of heavy Muzak, managing to sound both fried and alive in the fine thunder-and-color tradition of late-period Led Zeppelin."

    As Soundgarden continued to release critically acclaimed and platinum-selling albums, the music of Rage Against The Machine was bringing a fierce and uncompromising meld of punk-inspired hard rock and politically-charged rap to the mainstream charts. With the release of their self-titled debut in 1992 the face of rock music began to change.
    "On the strength of the album," wrote Timothy White in Billboard, "they must be viewed as one of the most original and virtuosic new rock bands in the nation...Rage Against The Machine generates the most beautifully articulated torrent of hardcore bedlam that one could imagine. And the hopes invested in these humming murals of urban din are equally visionary." Rage Against The Machine went on to sell 15 million records worldwide.

    Formed in 2001, Audioslave is a four-headed rock supergroup consisting of the former vocalist of Soundgarden, and the instrumentalists of Rage Against the Machine.

    The music is fueled by Cornell's powerful voice and Tom Morello's unique and unconventional style of guitar playing, with heavy hip-hop style solos, scratches down his guitar's neck, synthesizer-like sound effects, and an extensive use of pedals and devices to change the guitar's sound. As with Rage Against the Machine, the band prides itself on the fact that all sounds are produced by vocals, guitar, bass guitar, or drums only.

    : n February 15, 2007, Chris Cornell officially announced his departure from Audioslave, issuing this statement:

    "Due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences, I am permanently leaving the band Audioslave. I wish the other three members nothing but the best in all of their future endeavors."

    The fact that Rage Against The Machine will be reforming for a number of festival appearances in summer 2007 further substantiate that Cornell's departure and the reforming of Rage Against The Machine mean the end for Audioslave.
