Rage Against The Machine XX Anniversary Edition 

The pairing of guitar hero Tom Morello, who played his instrument like a DJ, and political activist Zack de la Rocha who spit out his lyrics with a vengeance, may have seemed unlikely but the results were explosive to say the least. With their 1992 self-titled debut they created a fierce mix of hip-hop, punk and heavy rock that was as progressive as it was political. Features the aggressive hit singles "Killing in the Name Of" and "Bullet in the Head."

 

Evil Empire 

Rage Against the Machine's long-awaited follow up to their 1993 self-titled debut was well worth the wait as its brand of revolutionary rap/protest metal has never been matched elsewhere. Tom Morello again sets the pace here with his guitar wizardry while Zach De La Rocha assaults his subjects with rage and resolve. The results are both profound and just plain powerful. Evil Empire debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, Bulls on Parade and People of the Sun received Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance and Tire Me took home the 1996 Grammy award for Best Metal Performance. 

 

Battle Of Los Angeles    

After the success of Rage Against The Machine's eponymous debut LP and follow-up 'Evil Empire´ this third album is another hard-hitting collection of songs full of political and social consciousness. With their catchy, yet raw heavy riffs and grooves they succeeded to release another album with actual hit singles ('Guerilla Radio' and 'Testify' ). However, it proved their last album full of original material; the follow-ups contained either covers (Renegades) or live-performances. With Battle of Los Angeles, the ´triple treat´ was completed.

Rolling Stone Magazine ranked the album at no. 423 in their 500 Greatest Albums Ever list. After several musical excursions by all members, the original Rage Against The Machine line-up performed live on various occasions in 2007, but a new studio album has yet to see the light. Like the first 2 Rage Against The Machine albums, this LP is re-issued on 180 grams vinyl.

 

Renegades  

Following 3 studio albums with original material Rage Against The Machine offered a tribute to their musical heroes, showing a broad variety in their favourite artists and genres. The album (rel. 2000) proved to be their last studio album and includes songs originally made famous by artists like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Minor Threat, Eric B. & Rakim, EPMD, MC5, The Rolling Stones, Cypress Hill, Devo and Afrika Bambaataa.

Instead of just giving each song the hard-riffing-and-rapping treatment, each song is treated differently, resulting in a musically varied album. For instance, Renegades of Funk and ´Microphone Fiend´ have never been rocked so hard before, whereas The Ghost of Tom Joad is Rage Against The Machine more subtle than youve ever heard before!

 

Rage Against The Machine (Picture Disc) 

Pissed off and angry is the best way to describe Rage Against the Machine's first album. A fierce mix of hip-hop, punk & heavy rock exploded all over the music scene in 1992.

At first sight an unlikely band; Tom Morello, a nerdy guitarhero who played his guitar like a DJ, political activist Zack de la Rocha who spitted out his lyrics with a vengeance. Together with Brad Wilk on drums and Tim C. on bass they produced one of the most angry records of 90's.

The album even contained, dare we say it, hit singles like Killing in the name of and Bullet in the head. Put the needle on the record and get blown away (again)!
