new band, Black Country Communion

Read about the new band "Black Country Communion" recently.  The band consists of Joe Bonnamassa, Glenn Hughes, Derek Sherinian, and Jason Bonham.  Billed as a US - British "supergroup", they sound like a fairly typical hard rock band, and even though they are all seasoned pros, they are aping the Audioslave template...hard charging guitar rock with hair metal vocals a la Chris Cornell (who has a better voice).  Excellent guitar by Bonnamassa, maybe this will be the vehicle for him to break out to a wider audience.  

9/21/10 - Update - I heard the disc...not terrible, but nothing original either.  The single "One Last Soul" is fairly tame, a radio-ready Foo-Fighters-ish tune.  If you're looking for some new hard-rock you could do worse than this.
