Audioslave
2001
United States
Music group
In the spirit of the supergroups of the past, two of the most important bands of the nineties pooled their talents to create a new band: Audioslave.

Originally dubbed Civilian, Audioslave pairs former Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell with 3/4 of Rage Against The Machine, and have thus far appear to have met everyone's lofty expectations. The three instrumentalists of rap-metal pioneers Rage Against the Machine (guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk) recruited a new singer after Zack de la Rocha left them in October 2000 for an anticipated solo career...

Within months, rumor had it that ex-Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell would be replacing De la Rocha. Gossip fueled truth, for Cornell joined the rest of Rage in the studio in May 2001.

On November 19th, 2002 Epic Records released Audioslave's self-titled debut. The album "Audioslave" was recorded in Los Angeles at Cello Studios with producer Rick Rubin. The 14 tracks are the result of the band’s early time spent in their Los Angeles rehearsal space writing and jamming.
