The New York Times has reported that Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog & Audioslave has died as of 5/17/17 in Detroit as stated by his representative Brian Bumbery, he died at the yound age of 52. Brian has stated that the death was ”Sudden and unexpected” and that the family would be ”Working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause”. It’s very sad to hear this news, realising he actually died moves me quite a lot.

For those of you that don’t know, Chris was born in 1964 in Seattle and started the band Soundgarden just 20 years later. He has been called one of or even the architect of grunge music. He has without a doubt meant a lot for the genre, he was the vocalist of Soundgarden since the beginning of the band and also after they got back together in 2010. Besides that he has been the singer of Audioslave from 2001 till 2007 and he has a solo carrier as well which people may know him of. Soundgarden has been one of the reasons grunge is a thing now and we should be really thankful for that. He moved so many people with his musical style, personality and appearance that many people got inspired to make music just because of Chris so after hearing this sad news I really am devastated.

All my thoughts go to his family, friends and the people he worked with. He may not be longer amongst us but his music will always live on. May Chris Cornell rest peacefully.

On the outskirts of Indianapolis, Indiana you will find one of the most appealing bands I have heard in some time. The band God Am formed in 2012 and have been putting in some major hours to hone their sound and get exactly where they want to be. The band released their debut EP on May 16th. The group have made waves throughout the region in Indiana and this EP is sure to turn those small waves into more of a tidal wave. After just finishing this EP the band is already hard at work a follow up to this debut and have 3 songs in the books written already. They will soon begin touring Indiana and surrounding areas and we can only hope a venue in our area will be lucky enough to book them. We had the honor of checking out the debut and are sure you will be just as impressed as we were. Continue reading
