One Day as a Lion: De La Rocha Returns 7/22
On July 22, 2008, the self-titled first album by newly formed group "One Day as a Lion" will drop. The group is a partnership between Zack de la Rocha (formerly of Rage Against the Machine) and Jon Theodore (formerly of Mars Volta).
De la Rocha will bring his sharp lyrical commentary and Theodore the flawless fury on drums. According to their website, http://www.onedayasalion.org, the album is "both a warning delivered and promise kept." It will be a departure from their past groups in that this will be stripped down instrumentally with no guitar or bass. Just the same, fans are expecting an unparalleled powerful experience.
Akin to the recently disbanded duet "Death From Above 1979" (drums/bass duet), less is much more and the intensity will be magnified by the presence of these two rock heavyweights. This promises to be a brilliant album and hopefully the beginning of a fruitful and brutally forceful partnership.
