Soundgarden’s King Animal album is the newest collection of songs from the group in 16 years.

Soundgarden also has their entire album available for streaming now on Itunes. In a recent interview, drummer Matt Cameron explains to The Pulse of Radio how Soundgarden was initially viewed by their local areas. “In our scene up here in the Northwest in the ’80s and ’90s, we were sometimes considered to be the RUSH of Seattle, just because we could sort of play our instruments maybe better than most bands. [laughs] We never really tried to flaunt any musical chops, but we always had pretty diverse tastes. We had a lot of really cool influences amongst ourselves that we tried to infuse in the music.” states Cameron.
