Vocalist Zack de la Rocha started a low-key solo career; while Morello and the rest of the band formed the rock supergroup Audioslave with former Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Audioslave released their self-titled debut album incritics initially described Audioslave as an amalgamation of Rage Against the Machine and Soundgarden,  but with the band's second album, Out of Exilenoted that the band had established its own separate identity.
The band's trademark sound was created by blending s hard rock with s grunge. Morello also incorporated his well-known, unconventional guitar solos into the band's sound.
After Audioslave released three successful albums, received three Grammy nominations, and became the first American rock band to perform an open-air concert in CubaCornell issued a statement in February that he was permanently leaving the band "due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences". After a seven-year hiatus, Rage Against the Machine reunited in January at the Coachella Festival and have has continued to perform at multiple live venues since, however, according to Morello, Rage Against the Machine has no plans to record new material.
In Morello created the identity of The Nightwatchmanan "artist of the people,"  when a desire to return to political activism in his music struck him, after over a year of playing non-activist rock in Audioslave.

Tagged with: ltfm istanbul turkey. Still a good tune. The last song "Sunrise On Mars" doesn't sound at all like the previous songs, Confirmation - The Us Electric - Threshold (CD, it's my least favourite. If your into music that features a great vocalist with lots of powerful riffs, then check out "Clone". The bands best album would be the following release Hypothetical where they got just the right balance between powerful riffs, a pleasing balance of keyboards and strong melodies.
Clone can be seen as the precursor of that album and shares a similar sound and vibe. Very good it is too with some excellent tracks, the best generally speaking being the longer ones like The Latent Gene and Goodbye To Mother Earth where they can flex their musical muscles better and up the prog quotient. There's still much to enjoy in the shorter pieces though and Freaks makes a powerful and memorable opener.
Where it falls short of the excellent Hypothetical is simply in the quality of the riffs and tunes. As good as many of them are they lack the killer punch that the majority of songs on that album packed. Still if you enjoy Threshold this one's well worth checking out and is one of Album) better releases of the "Mac" years. At best this album delivers decent repetitions of what they already did on previous albums: Freaks, Lovelorn, Life's Too Good are decent melodic metal, and The Latent Gene and Goodbye Mother Earth have their share of enjoyable moments.
Overall I sure do miss the grace, emotion and inspiration that Damian Wilson had so plenty off. For me this is the last Threshold album worth listening to. From this point onwards, an occasional song not withstanding, Threshold would continue the commercial and predictable metal FM-rock that first surfaces here and has nothing on offer that I want to be near to.
The songs have a strong melody and are driven by hammering riffs, such as with 'Angels'. It is great how the time sig switches midway through and moves into a new feel. The wah- wah lead is welcome, played by Karl Groom. The keyboard finesse of Richard West is on display here, one of the best most creative songs on the album. As usual on a Threshold album there are lengthy splashes of instrumentation on lead guitar and keyboard.
One of the best examples is on the 8 minute 'The Latent Gene'. It has a melodic hook on vocals but is equally on song in the breaks. The lead guitar soars to the stratosphere, Confirmation - The Us Electric - Threshold (CD then the song switches into a quick tempo.
It switches gears a few times and holds the interest throughout. Lyrics are concentric on DNA tampering and the mantra is "my generation's lost its patience. The tension and release of soft verses and raucous chorus is a trademark of Threshold.
Then they flow into extended soloing, the lead guitar really sings along those sustained effusive keyboard chords. I like how a different guitar solo sound follows to augment the melancholy atmosphere. This is backed up beautifully by a third solo over the main riff; an absolutely wonderful song.
It is followed by 'Life's Too Good', with spacey intro, and a fistful of metal riffs. It is great how the sig speeds and slows down at will, and then moves into harmonics on guitar in the instrumental break.
I like the science fiction themes inherent in the trilogy at the end of the album. This is followed by a platter of vociferous guitar riffs that power it along. The vocals come in bang on cue spouting on about "the tower of Babel is fallen from the sky" and Album) weapons, the perfect inspection is out of your hands, under protection in enemy lands.
The lyrics are profound; "Goodbye mother earth, you're no longer free, can't you see your situation, no one's there to cover you for all the things that you forgot, soon you'll find there's not much time Confirmation - The Us Electric - Threshold (CD go. The keyboard solo is akin to Pink Floyd, and the tasty guitar dishes out wonderful fire. The anger is personified in the music, and then it settles into spaciness and segues into the next track seamlessly.
Again it settles with gentle guitars to make room for Mac's vocals. The chorus bang the gavel down with thunderous guitars and vox.
It moves to an organic keyboard solo, sounding like Rudess' Continuum sound. Groom's lead guitar is not far away and he launches into a fret melting flurry of notes.
The ending has NASA control voice overs, and then an extended coda of majestic vox over colossal metal chords. This is an incredible song and drives the nail home as one of Threshold's masterpieces.
The closing track is 'Sunrise On Mars' seguing from the last track, and opening with a grand melody reminiscent of Pink Floyd. Mac sings, "never thought I'd fall from grace, it's hard to tell you why it hurts or how to make it go away, so far away. Overall this is another of the better Threshold albums, not in the masterpiece category but still wonderful prog metal. The album has a fantastic quality production and ends with three of the best, and in some ways I wish the whole album was as progressive without the excursions into more poppier ballads.
I have found that Threshold tend to lapse into a mainstream sound which are okay songs, but they are certainly better suited to the longer songs where they can unleash the furious keyboard and guitar attacks. Here is the perfect mix of guitars, keyboards and drums in a melodic metallic progtastic environment with a singer who knows exactly what he is about and then the whole package is wrapped up by the engineering and production skills of Karl Groom.
