This one doesn’t need much of an intro. Soundgarden, one of the premier Seattle bands of the late 80s and early 90s, has finally reunited. Broken up in 1997, Soundgarden announced that they would be reuniting in late 2009, and played their first show in 13 years on Saturday night, April 16.
The show sounds pretty awesome, and Cornell can hit almost all of the absurdly high notes from their early songs. The band as a whole sounds pretty tight, as if they picked up where they left off in 1997.
[Update: Both the zip file and the single song files have run out of bandwidth. Please check back again tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.]
