Chris Cornell/ Rage Against The Machine "Rough Mix" Album Is Out There... Somewhere; No Word On Release Date

RATM/ Chris Cornell Project Is
Contrary to recent reports, the as-yet-untitled project featuring former Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell and members of Rage Against The Machine is not set for a late summer release on Epic Records -- or any other date -- according to Allstar, who cited a spokesperson for the label as the source of the information.
Meanwhile, a 13-song, 62-minute disc from the sessions was recently previewed by Blabbermouth.net, and we can happily report that the album will be very much worth the wait when it does eventually surface, with Cornell's performance in particular living up to the high standard that we have come to expect from the man.
Although tinges of RATM's signature groove-based rhythms are present in several spots, most of the tracks are moody, colorful slices of modern rock that display the kind of stunning musicianship and depth of emotion that most of the current crop of new-breed acts could only dream of conjuring up on an album release.
It should also be noted that, despite this being nothing more than a "rough mix" version of the final product, Cornell's vocals appear on all 13 cuts and sound as close to finished as one could expect them to be, thus putting an end to the recent rumors suggesting that Chris' inability to complete the vocal tracks was largely to blame for the continued delay in getting the album released.
