MATT CAMERON TALKS NEW SOUNDGARDEN SONGS ‘BY CROOKED STEPS’ AND ‘BLACK SATURDAY’

WAAF interviewed Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron yesterday and he had this to say about his work on Soundgarden’s new album King Animal, “I wrote two songs on the new record, and one was a collaboration called Crooked Steps that is one of my favorites. It has all the elements that I guess we’re known for it’s not in 4-4 and it’s got a really awesome vocal part. The drumming is kind of all over the place, there’s a lot of percussion. There’s a song called Black Saturday that I’m really proud of. I really feel good about the album as a whole, I think it will be a nice addition to our catalog and our legacy.”

Cameron also talked about the benefits of the internet for music when it comes to gauging fan reactions, but he added that he can’t delve too deep into it, ““It can get a little weird, with all the trolls out there.” Stay away from the comments section here Matt!

    hahahha, thats so true in regards of trolls

  • Shadow on the Sun

    Lmao, that’s too funny.
    I wonder if crooked steps is this albums “head down” based on there being a lot of percussion. I I also wonder if halfway there is the completion of Half from superunknown

  • Dennis

    Hilarious. Amen to the trolls. I’d almost guarantee he looks at this site.

  • warriorwoman

    Perhaps Matt could do some research on “tantric drumming”. Look what “tantric” supposedly did for Sting’s (of Police)sex life! LOL!

  • Deviate

    Pretty sure Matt is referring to Mayan.

    IF MATT CAMERON IS TALKING ABOUT ME , IM MORE THAN HAPPY AND HONORED :)

    OF COURSE MATT CAMERON REALLY CARED ABOUT ONLINE REACTIONS AND OPINIONS TO HIS BANDS MUSIC, HE WOULD HAVE TOTALLY HELP SOUNDGARDEN OUT BY SINGING THE SONGS HIMSELF :) IVE HEARD MATT CAMERON SING BEFORE AND HES A GREAT SINGER, CHRIS CORNELL NEEDS TO STOP SCREAMING SO MUCH , ITS TOO SCREECHY
    SO WHY NOT THIS LET THE OTHER MEMBERS LIKE KIM , BEN OR MATT TAKE OVER THE VOCAL PARTS?

  • The Garden of Sound

    Wow, this Mayan guy comes off as a homo with no interest in the pussy whatsoever. He clearly enjoys Creed because he must be stupid.

  • Deviate

    No, Mayan is actually Scott Stapp. And he’s posting all his rants while hanging out at Chad Kroger’s house.

  • grunkreport

    Black Saturday is the day after Black Friday. Quite brutal.

  • Luke

    Really Brett you’re going to leave myans post dropping racial slurs up, you’re never going to be taken as a professional if you keep supporting the actions of this idiot? Or is it just you posting stupid shit to get more traffic and comments on your website that has gone to complete shit since you encouraged this goof?

  • Luke

    Does anyone remember when we used to have real conversations about music around here? It’s been far too long

  • The Garden of Sound

    Honestly, I cant say I can remember a good conversation.

  • RiotZ

    Chris Cornell happens to be the best writer of the last 2 decades. And his voice is about three-hundred times better than any other shit grunge vocalists, like Kurt Kobain or Scott Stapp. I agree his voice seemed aged on the single, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a bad album.

    So reserve your fallacious opinions until after the album drops.

    Numbnuts.
