Here it is...finally. One Day as a Lion are Zack de la Rocha, lead vocalist (and current as of July 2008) for Rage Against the Machine, and Jon Theodore, former drummer with the Mars Volta. De la Rocha and Theodore have been reportedly working on this project since 2006. The end result is a volatile mix of rhythm, noise, and radical poetry.
Review Summary: Zack de la Rocha and Jon Theodore team up for a spontaneous yet good EP. One Day as a Lion, as this duo will openly state, comes from a quote: “It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb. ” Well, as many know, Zack de la Rocha has spent more than a day roaring like a lion over the top of Rage Against the Machine, and, following their breakup, further collaborations.
