New (old) Soundgarden - "Black Rain"

Finally, Mr. Chris Cornell has stopped his long string of chokes and returned to the fold of grungemasters Soundgarden. They're releasing a new retrospective (read: cheap moneygrab) called Telephantasm at the end of the month. The previously unreleased track, "Black Rain," is probably the only good thing that will come of the retrospective. It's a scorcher from the Badmotorfinger days, featuring Kim Thayil's miasma of drop-tuned guitars and some harpy-status screams from Cornell. Word on teh internetz says that the singer rerecorded the chorus and outro vocals this year; could Soundgarden possibly come out with some good new material in the near future? For now, enjoy this cut.
