    Soundgarden practically open up another world on their latest release "Storm".

    It's that haunting, hypnotic, and heavy—not to mention just plain psychedelically powerful. However, the heaviness comes from just how adventurous it is. "Storm" reflects the spirit of a band whose willing to continue pushing the envelope, experimenting, and evolving. The resounding guitar intro swells like clouds on the horizon before Chris Cornell unloads that towering scream punctuated by searing lead work from Kim Thayil. Ben Shepherd holds down a thunderous bass groove matched in terms of intensity by Matt Cameron's ever-enchanting drumming.

    The track morphs into the kind of monster that first possessed fans on Ultramega OK and Louder Than Love but with an even more entrancing and expansive vision and scope.

    This is the ultimate "Storm" that rock 'n' roll has been desperately yearning for. Welcome to their world...
