10 Sep Soundgarden, Louder Than Love 30th Anniversary colored vinyl release
Soundgarden celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Louder Than Love with a colored vinyl release.
Firstly, Soundgarden’s sophomore album, Louder Than Love was first released on 5th September 1989. So this year it will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a new 180g translucent orange vinyl edition. Hence, the record will be released by IGA on 20 September 2019. To begin with, the album was produced by the band and Terry Date (Dream Theater, Mother Love Bone). Louder Than Love was the follow-up to Soundgarden’s debut, Ultramega OK. Also, it was their major-label debut for A&M Records.
Altogether the album generated three singles. Specifically “Loud Love”, “Hands All Over” and the radio-only “Get on the Snake”. Afterward “Get on the Snake” was featured in the 1989 movie and soundtrack, “Lost Angels“. Meanwhile “Big Dumb Sex” was later covered by Guns N’ Roses on their 1993 album, “The Spaghetti Incident?“. In short, it was part of a medley with T. Rex’s “Buick MacKane”. Thereafter in 2017, Rolling Stone ranked Louder Than Love as 69th on their list of ‘The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time’.
