Fire Drill
Didn’t know if this day would ever come but One Day As A Lion marks the return to recording for Rage frontman Zach De La Rocha with the help of former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore. The EP is really set up as man vs. machine as Rocha pits his instantly recognizable vocals and keyboards against the drums of Theodore. The end result is 20 minutes of protest music that has the right intensity that Rage Against The Machine fans will embrace but yet still retains a different flavor for a new generation to pick up the cause.

Key Track: "Wild International"

Band With Similar Fire: Rage Against The Machine (duh)
