Editors’ Notes

Noise drenched rap/metal polemicists Rage Against The Machine's blend of firebrand social commentary, lumbering avant metal, and hip-hop rhythms inspired hundreds of rap rock outfits whose re-imaginings of Rage’s revolutionary aesthetic were often of dubious value. In response, Rage frontman Zack de la Rocha retreated into the underground after the band’s dissolution, planning an LP with underground hip-hop label raucous and performing solo as The Nightwatchman. Le Rocha’s most recent project, One Day As A Lion, a collaboration with Mars Volta’s drummer Jon Theodore, is of equally modest proportions, but its musical value far outdistances its reduced commercial profile. Theodore’s thunderous percussion, a blend of Bonham at his most bombastic and ?uestlove at his funkiest, provides a startlingly powerful foundation for de la Rocha’s primitive but gritty keyboard work. De la Rocha’s playing is economical but powerful, recalling a fractured, amped up version of keyboard-based garage outfits like ? & The Mysterians. Though the vocals are so low in the mix as to be almost inaudible, One Day As A Lion offers truckloads of visceral garage rock thrills.

Diggin' It Zach

Man when I found out Rage were Touring again, It was the madest feeling. But now with Zach joining another band and bringing out equally good music, it makes me 2x Happier Haha man, especially Wild International. If your a Zach De La Rocha fan, this won't disapoint you.


It doesn't sound that much like a Rage album, in fact it's nowhere near it, but the message of Zacks lyrics and his brilliant lyrics make this EP everything a fan could hope for.


This album is great; Zach's protest and lyrics are what I love about this band. But still, I prefer RATM, and I BEG for Zach to come join back for the group and make another album. I miss Tom Morello's guitar that worked perfectly well with Zach's rap and also with the bassist and the drummer +++ I personally think Audioslave is terrible with their singer; the rap is much better suited for the style of the guitar, bass and drums of RATM.
