Soundgarden Offers Free Download Of “Black Rain” Video

October 13, 2010

Soundgarden’s video for “Black Rain” is currently the iTunes Free Video of the Week. The offer started this Tuesday and will end on Monday October 18th at approximately midnight. “Black Rain” comes off of the bands recently released career-spanning retrospective, Telephantasm.

Directed by Brendon Small, the co-creator of Adult Swim’s “Metalocalypse”, “Black Rain” is the first artist-driven music video to be based off of the show. Soundgarden members – Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Sheperd – are transformed into avatar-robot controllers as they patrol the streets of a post-apocalyptic Seattle defeating evil. The video builds up to an epic phosphorescent robot battle in space.

“I’m a gigantic Soundgarden fan and it was so much fun bringing them into our warped Metalocalypse world,” said Small about making the video.

“Black Rain” is the hit single from the new Soundgarden album, “Telephantasm,” and available at this iTunes location.
