Overview

Rage Against the Machine spent four years making its second album, Evil Empire. Their rage at the "fascist" capitalist system in America hadn't declined in the nearly half-decade they were away. Their musical approach didn't change, either. Lead vocalist Zack de la Rocha is caught halfway between the militant raps of Chuck D and the fanatical ravings of a street preacher, shouting out his libertarian slogans over the sonically dense assault of the band. Guitarist Tom Morello demonstrates an impressive palette of sound, creating new textures in heavy metal, which is quite difficult, and de la Rocha's dedication to decidedly left-wing politics is admirable, simply because few other performers of the '90s had made any sort of political stance.

Rage Against the Machine has proven time and time again that they can make great albums. The music is a cool mix between Political punk rock, rap and heavy rock. Zeck De la Rocha(singer) and Tom Morello(guitarist) make the group, they are both really good, and there is something to be said about Tim Bob Commerford(Bass)and Brad Wilk(Drums). This music is excellent, a must buy.

Really amazing riffs! The vocals are full of rage! If you like good riffs, you like this one. Unfortunately there are some tracks that aren't so good "Snakecharmer" and "Year of the Dragon" seem more like album fillers. Recommended tracks: "Revolver", "People of the Sun" and "Bulls on Parade"

The lyrics make white,rich americans just as EVIL as a politician and I quote(rollin down Rodeo with a shotgun these people ain't seen a brown skin man since their grandparents bought one). That just means slavery from a mexican point of veiw. I strongly recomend Evil Empire more than battle of los angelas. Evil Empire came at time when I was a teenager trying to find existence among the wealthy of South Dakota

Evil Empire, although not as epic as their next album, is a very good album. My favorite song on the album is "Bulls on Parade." They rap more on this one than on any other, which is pretty cool. I also really like the "Revolver" track. Anyways, buy The Battle of Los Angeles before you get this one, but if you like Battle, buy this album.
