THE FOUNDERS OF RAP/ROCK METAL.,
This review is from: Rage Against the Machine (Audio CD)
To all those uninformed people out there, who believe that Korn or Limp Bizkit invented rap/rock metal, think again. "Rage Against the Machine" are the ones who started it way back in 1992, even if they don't get much credit/hatred for it. This self-titled album put Rage on the map, and for good reason. This album rocks hard! The guitar and bass riffs are awesome, and the lyrics are filled with passion and anger. The songs on this album are highly original, as there weren't many other bands of this genre at the time for Rage to steal ideas from. If anything, you will enjoy this cd purely for the skills that Tom Morello displays on guitar, fusing funk with rock and metal so seamlessly, that the blend sounds uncontrived. This album was way ahead of its time in terms of rap/rock metal, and no other band has achieved the same level of quality and originality since. If you are into this genre of music, you will love this cd. It contains the song "Killing in the Name." Need i say more?
