In January 2010, Cornell announced through his website that "The Knights of the Sound Table ride again". The band officially reunited in 2012. A new song, "Live to Rise," played during the end credits of ''Film/TheAvengers2012''. In addition, their first new album since their breakup, ''King Animal'', was released in November 2012.

Sadly, the reunion came to a sudden and tragic end five years later. Chris Cornell [[AuthorExistenceFailure committed suicide after a concert in Detroit, Michigan]] on May 17, 2017, allegedly fueled by his years of drug and alcohol abuse, leaving the future of the band - and the in-progress session for their seventh album - in doubt.

** The demo for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMak5Bwcw0I Beyond The Wheel]]" has to be heard to be believed. It's so slow, plodding, and heavy that it almost doesn't even sound like the same band.

The group broke up in 1997 due to [[CreativeDifferences internal conflict]], leaving Cornell to form the SuperGroup Music/{{Audioslave}} with the former members of Music/RageAgainstTheMachine, and later a solo career [[LoveItOrHateIt with polarizing results]]. Cornell also co-wrote "You Know My Name" with Music/DavidArnold for the ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006''. His music at that time veered into a more pop / hip-hop-oriented direction, causing much backlash among the fanbase. Cameron currently drums for Pearl Jam, and has since the Yield tour (he wasn't involved with the Temple of the Dog reunion mentioned below). Thayil played with Music/JelloBiafra and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Krist Novoselic]] as the "No WTO Combo" after the Seattle riots of November 1999, and contributed to Music/DaveGrohl's side-project Probot. Shepherd recorded a solo album, ''In Deep Owl'' (which Cameron also played on), but it didn't see the light of day until 2013.

** They've flirted with this numerous times (which can be owed to their Music/BlackSabbath influence); "4th of July" and "Gun" are some of the most prominent examples.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally a 5 ("Head Down") to 6 ("Let Me Drown", "My Wave"). "Black Hole Sun" and the gentler tracks of ''King Animal'' are arguably a (high) 3. A few other tracks like "Jesus Christ Pose" and "4th of July" arguably reach an 8.

Soundgarden is a UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} {{Grunge}} / AlternativeMetal band formed in TheEighties and popular in TheNineties. Their name comes from a sculpture in Seattle, "A Sound Garden". The band was recognized as one of The Big Four of Grunge (along with Music/{{Nirvana}}, Music/PearlJam and Music/AliceInChains), though they didn't become successful until the genre fully took off with the release of Nirvana's ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' and Pearl Jam's ''Music/{{Ten}}''. Their 1994 album ''Superunknown'' is considered a masterpiece of the movement. Their music is largely characterized by {{Epic Riff}}s, Music/ChrisCornell's distinctive voice, and common use of UncommonTime, producing a sound many reviewers have described as being Music/LedZeppelin [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] Music/BlackSabbath.
