    Apparently the new group consisting of the remaining three members of Rage Against The Machine and Chris Cornell will be called "Civilian." I've heard the album will be released sometime at the end of February, but you know how that goes. I've gotta say...that's a dopey name. But it's the music that counts and I have a feeling that the music will be great.

    I'm looking forward to hearing Chris Cornell in a group again. It killed me when Soundgarden broke up.

    I would have preferred, "Rage for an Unrecoverable 7-Figure Advance from the Machine", but Civilian sounds OK. [​IMG]

    I'm looking forward to this one. Chris Cornell has one of the rock voices of our time. It'll be interesting to see what direction the music takes, though...I can't see Chris fitting in with the types of rhythms Rage featured.

    I'm glad this is happening. Rage had a tight, kicking rhythm section, but the singer was so incredibly obnoxious I could never listen to them. Cornell has one of my favorite rock voices of all time. It could be a really good pairing.

    With Cornell in tow, maybe the musicians formerly or RAGE will finally get there props. Tom Morello is amazing, but generally the only press that band got was due to its politics.

    My favorite conjecture as to the new band name was always:

    "Rage Against the Miami Sound Machine"

    I think this will work.

    Euphoria Morning was really a break for Cornell for experimentation...a chance NOT to be Soundgarden. Whatever music Civilian churns out will be an appropriate meshing of their styles...or perhaps they'll both (RATM & CC) have created new styles! Either way I look forward to hearing what they have to put out.

    I'll be very surprised if this album doesn't rock.

    I thought Battle for LA was their best work yet. Sorry to see them break up (kinda) but I always loved the music as much as the singing.

    Just for the heck of it, I did a search for Civilian on WinMX and found four songs...Reach Down, Your Savior, Pushing Forward Back, and Monstereo. Three are Temple of the Dog songs. But I've never heard Monstereo. Is this the real deal?
