South of Eden is paying tribute to Audioslave and its late front man Chris Cornell.
The band debuted the video for its cover of Audioslave’s song ‘Show Me How To Live’ Monday through Spin magazine. Recorded at Sonic Lounge Studios in Grove City, Ohio, the performance was filmed, directed, and edited by John Payne for Payne Productions.
South of Eden stayed largely true to Audioslave’s original song in its take on ‘How To Live.’ The most noticeable change in SOE’s take is the solo, which takes Tom Morello’s work and steps it up even more. Front man Ehab Omran’s vocal delivery is such that even Cornell’s fans will find themselves praising his take on the song. Meanwhile, Tom McCullough (drums) and Nick Frantianne (bass) are just as worthy of their own praise as they take on the work of Brad Wilk and Tim Cummerford in their respective parts.
The band released a prepared statement explaining its reasoning for covering ‘Show Me How To Live.’
‘I fell in love with ‘Show Me How To Live’ instantly,” the statement reads. “It’s a very heavy riff, but it grooves at the same time, and that’s why I think Tom Morello is a god for doing all the things he does on the electric guitar. And obviously Chris Cornell is nothing to pass over at all, may he rest in peace.”
