Includes Seven Unreleased Tracks

Recognized as one of the world’s most influential bands in Rock music, Grammy-winning multi-platinum selling band Soundgarden started a musical transformation that inspired a generation in its record-breaking career, leaving an indelible mark by helping redefine Alternative and Hard Rock. Hard on the heels of the 20th anniversary deluxe re-release of its chart-topping, five-times-platinum 1994 album, Superunknown, earlier this year, Soundgarden’s latest release is a 3-CD rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path.

Among the seven unreleased tracks is a brand-new recording, “Storm,” recorded in May with producer Jack Endino in Seattle. The new collection was curated and hand-selected by guitarist Kim Thayil. Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path is the first time an official Soundgarden release has included more than 26 years of rarities that have appeared as B-sides, album bonus tracks, EPs, soundtracks, compilations and live recordings, a must for any fan of the band. The package features three separate thematic discs in a clear plastic slipcase with three separate mini-jackets, each sporting its own unique art, a booklet and inserts, allowing fans to mix and match, personalizing their own album graphic layout.

Dirty Cakes - I'd Luv To See You Nakid - promo cover pic - 2013

DIRTY CAKES BAND – Back on October 1st, 2013, I’d Luv To See You Nakid, the debut (3 song) EP from Dirty Cakes Band was self-released. It is available as a name your price at the (fabulous) music media platform known as Bandcamp (see below). This Psychedelic Desert Grunge band, in my Metal opinion, have 3 outstanding songs to launch their career from, therefore:

DIRTY CAKES BAND – I’D LUV TO SEE YOU NAKID IS STONE’S METAL PICK OF THE DAY!

I really dig Dirty Cakes Band and there appears to be many others that do as well; especially of the female variety and one visit to their twitter page will explain what I mean. Dirty Cakes Band call Los Angeles, California, home. Their overall sound is a bounty of what I want to hear from an up and coming Hard Rock band. Dirty Cakes Band are (just enough) raw, while dabbling in a few Rock genres and molding it all together to make their own unique and refreshing musical statement.

Dirty Cakes Band have taken their brand of sound and united it with the relevancy of Classic Rock in a wonderful and memorable way. The future should surely be successful for Dirty Cakes Band, as long as they continue to make more great songs, tour and market themselves on social media with Rockin’ legit drive, hunger and passion. They’re certainly off to a tremendous start already. Metal be thy name. – Stone

CRANK UP, LISTEN TO, SHARE AND PURCHASE THE ROCK AND ROLL FROM DIRTY CAKES BAND! WHOA!

Posted in grunge, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 17, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

SOUNDGARDEN- Below is the time-lapse of the creation of the King Animal mural at Easy Street Records in Seattle Washington. King Animal is the new studio album in over 15 years from Soundgarden. The sixth studio album overall, King Animal was released on November 13th, via Universal Republic.

The song you’ll be listening to is By Crooked Steps, as it’s featured on King Animal. I dig this song, it grooves and flows along quite excellent. Chris Cornell’s vocals are once again stellar and this band is legendary. Metal be thy name.

SOUNDGARDEN ‘Down On The Upside’ – This Album Stood By Me, During A Lonely Print Sales Career

Posted in classic rock, grunge, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Music, rock albums, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on August 23, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

SOUNDGARDEN – The fifth studio album and platinum selling Down On The Upside was released back in November of 1996, via A&M Records. Already super fond of Soundgarden, I bought this album (on cassette) back in 1996 and still own it to this day. Last weekend I finally upgraded my ownership of Down On The Upside to CD. I bought it at Super Walmart for $5 (U.S.). Whoa! What took me so long to upgrade this Soundgarden classic? I can’t even answer that question myself. File that question in Stone’s mystery folder and carry on my wayward son.

Back in 1996 I was a traveling printing salesman. Yes, you read that correctly. I need to correct that, I was a traveling printing salesman whore. Why use the word whore? Well, my customers treated me like shit regardless of my stellar customer service; while the various owners I worked for only gave a shit about my contacts and how much money they were worth. As a printing salesman, my self-image was at an all-time low; existing for the sole purpose to make someone else a ton of money, while making corporate print buyers look like winners of the week.

Why have I brought up this part of my past, in the middle of a very cool Soundgarden post? The reason is simple. Down On The Upside got me through (at least) three years of a profession that drained my spirit, while driving around all of New England. I’m serious about that. That Soundgarden cassette was my best friend on many, many lonely drives while being a white-collar punching bag.

I remember once, a jack-ass V.P. of my biggest client bellowing aloud, as I entered the room: “here come’s just another slimy salesman.” What an asshole that guy was. A genuine narcistic scum bag. Nice greeting to start my day, with a customer I essentially sacrificed my soul for. That dumb ass had  an “I’m an ABBA fan” written all over his face every time I saw him as well.

I remember leaving the building of that customer, on that God forsaken day, shaking my head in disgust. Once I started up my Ford Contour, I slapped in my Down On The Upside cassette and cranked up Pretty Noose… then Rhinosaur… then Zero Chance… and Soundgarden had me snickering all the way down the overstuffed highway to hell… or next disloyal customer, if you will.

Believe me, there were many other cassettes in my Contour while I served time as a printing salesman. Too many bands and titles to mention. It’s just that this Soundgarden album kept me afloat and had me realizing that it was Rock ‘N Roll that poured through my veins and soul… and not some stupid ass print-sales career. Whatever Soundgarden did with tweaking their musical nuances on Down On The Upside, they did it with a mystical wand.

From the very first time I heard Soundgarden, I recognized an attitude in their sound that beckoned me to become a fan. Is it Chris Cornell’s vocals? Can it be Kim Thayil’s guitar tones? The totality of Soundgarden’s sound is so unique, I never could even classify them as a “Grunge only” band. Hell no. There’s no question that Soundgarden did originate from the birth place of Grunge and pioneered an entirely new Rock movement. At the end of my Metal day, this band has and always will kick my ass with their hard and heavy Rock style and that’s all that matters to me.

It feels F’n grand to get this (silly) part of my life off of my chest today. No matter how I slice it, I can relate segments and experiences of my life to Rock ‘N Roll… and how it has and will forever save my Rockin’ soul. Thank you Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Ben Shepherd and Matt Cameron. Metal be thy name.
