Temple Of The Dog are streaming a demo titled, Angel Of Fire, that was left off of their self-titled 1991 album, listen to it below.

The song will be included on the extended 25th anniversary edition, which also features a remix of Hunger Strike and another demo called, Black Cat. It will be released on September 30th through Universal Music after Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron along with Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament and Mike McCready won a legal battle to have the master tapes returned. Right now, it is available for pre-order at iTunes.

In honor of this special re-release, the band will be playing a small number of live shows.

“This is something no one has ever seen,” Cornell says of the official reunion. “We wanted to stop and recognize that we did this and pay homage.”

Guitarist Mike McCready recently told Classic Rock, “If anybody wants to start writing for Temple Of The Dog, I will be there to play guitar if they want me. We’re very busy with our band right now and Chris has been on such a long tour, so he’s been very busy. So in terms of timing, who knows, But I hope we can do new songs.”

    Chris Cornell is one of the best pure rock vocalists out there IMHO. I would also include John Sykes, Brian Johnson, Miles Kennedy, Doug Pinnick, William DuVall (Alice in Chains), and Ronnie Romero (Blackmore was right, he’s good).
