Rage Against the Machine er måske fortid

Rage Against the Machine er måske fortid

Rage Against the Machine har i årevis ligget højt på både Roskilde- og NorthSide-bookernes – og publikums – ønskeliste, men måske kommer bandet aldrig til at spille igen. Gruppen gav deres sidste koncert i 2011 på festivalen L.A. Rising, og trommeslager Brad Wilk (nummer tre fra højre) siger nu til radiostationen The Pulse of Radio, at der muligvis ikke kommer flere optrædener, og at han har det fint med det.

Brad Wilk udtaler: "Så vidt jeg ved, spillede vi vores sidste koncert i 2011 ved The Coliseum, og hvis det var vores sidste koncert, var det en god måde at stoppe på. Jeg var ligesom nødt til at sige til mig selv, at bandet er fortid for bare at komme videre i mit liv, og for at være ærlig, så ligger den der. The Coliseum – en imponerende måde at stoppe på."

Ved koncerten på det enorme stadion The Coliseum i hjembyen Los Angeles – med plads til 93.000, når der er amerikansk fodbold – fik Rage Against the Machine selskab af andre grupper og solister, blandt andre Muse, Rise Against og Lauryn Hill.

Guitarist Tom Morello udtalte tilbage i december 2012 også, at bandets fremtid var usikker. Dengang kunne bandet fejre 20 års jubilæet for deres storsælgende debutalbum, men det blev ikke markeret med en turné, men blot en genudgivelse, selvom Morello personligt gerne ville på verdensturné med bandet.

Siden den sidste koncert med Rage Against the Machine har Brad Wilk spillet trommer på Black Sabbaths comebackalbum "13" fra sidste år – som erstatning for Bill Ward, der trak sig af kontraktmæssige årsager – ligesom han deltog i all-star-koncerterne, der markerede udgivelsen af Dave Grohls dokumentarfilm "Sound City", ligeledes fra 2013. Senest er han blevet medlem af rocktrioen The Last Internationale, der desuden består af Delila Paz og Edgey Pires og for tiden er i studiet med producer Brendan O'Brien (Rage Against the Machine, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen med flere).

Rage Against the Machine debuterede i 1992 med det selvbetitlede album, der blandede rap og aggressiv rock og blev en kæmpesucces med hits som "Killing in the Name" og "Bullet in the Head". De har siden udgivet albummene "Evil Empire" (1996), "The Battle of Los Angeles" (1999) og coveralbummet "Renegades" (2000). I 2000 gik bandet i opløsning, og alle medlemmer undtagen vokalist Zack de la Rocha fortsatte med gruppen Audioslave med Chris Cornell fra Soundgarden som sanger. Rage Against the Machine blev gendannet i 2007 og har siden givet en række koncerter, men har ikke udsendt nyt materiale efter genforeningen. Zack de la Rocha dannede i 2007 bandet One Day as a Lion, som i 2008 udsendte en ep, deres hidtil eneste udgivelse.

Er Rage fortid, kan man da altid nyde minderne – eksempelvis her med "Killing in the Name":

Rage Against the Machine may have already played their final show, and if that is the case, drummer Brad Wilk says he's already come to terms with it.

The drummer, speaking with The Pulse of Radio (excerpted by Blabbermouth), states that he's made peace with the idea that 2011′s L.A. Rising festival may have been their final date. He explains, "As far as I know, we played our last show in 2011 at the Coliseum, and if that was our last show, that's a good way to go out. I had sort of had to put it in my head that that band is over in order for me to just move on with my life, to be honest with you, so that's kind of where that lies. The Coliseum — awesome way to go out."

The L.A. Rising event had Rage Against the Machine's stamp all over it, as the group celebrated in the city where they came up through the ranks, playing one of the city's largest venues and even picking the eclectic lineup of acts that joined them in the performance (Rise Against, Muse, Lauryn Hill and more).

Guitarist Tom Morello has also hinted in recent years that Rage Against the Machine may be done, especially with the hype surrounding the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut passing with only a special edition release but no performances.

In the time since Rage Against the Machine's last show, Wilk played drums in the studio for Black Sabbath on their '13′ album, he joined the all-star shows for Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary and most recently he joined the new band The Last Internationale. That group is currently working with producer Brendan O'Brien on an album and recently released a new song called 'Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Indian Blood.'

There may still be some hope as back in February, the L.A. Rising Facebook page posted a faked Hollywood sign picture with L.A. Rising in its place stating, "A sign of things to come," while another post last week stated, "Hungry people don't stay hungry for long." But even with the tease of a potential new L.A. Rising festival, Rage Against the Machine's participation has not been mentioned or confirmed.
