Still Raging: Why the world needs a band like Prophets Of Rage
While Rage Against The Machine might be defunct, their spirit lives on in Prophets Of Rage – and theirs is a fire that burns harder than ever
It’s been six years since Rage Against The Machine last graced a stage. Six long, barren years during which time metal’s political conscience has been largely obliterated into extinction by the distractions of social media, celebrity culture and general apathy. While the likes of Architects, Letlive (RIP) and While She Sleeps have made convincing stands, few bands have looked capable of carrying Rage’s message onto a truly global stage. Fortunately, a band are finally here to step into the breach they left. And that band is… Rage Against The Machine.
