RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Saturday, April 2nd, 2022 8:00 PM Pan American Center, Las Cruces
Outspoken firebrands and activists Rage Against the Machine educated masses of heavy music fans by injecting their bombastic Molotov cocktail of rap, hardcore punk, funk, and metal with a sobering dose of fiercely polemical, politically charged urgency. Crashing the mainstream in 1992 with “Killing in the Name” — their sonic protest against police brutality and systemic racism — the band planted their flag in the scene with their triple-platinum debut, Rage Against the Machine, which courted controversy with its graphic cover of a protesting, self-immolated Buddhist monk.
Rage continued to push this anti-authoritarian and revolutionary message, extending their platinum streak with subsequent chart-topping Grammy winners Evil Empire (1996) and The Battle of Los Angeles (1999). At the turn of the millennium, it seemed like they would show no signs of relenting, balancing sales and chart success with headline-grabbing demonstrations (like shutting down the New York Stock Exchange for a video shoot). However, in late 2000, the band imploded and decided to take a break. At the turn of the next decade, Rage made another official comeback, charting a global reunion tour in 2020 that was sidelined by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. That same year, in the midst of international protests against police brutality, their seminal debut struck a chord with demonstrators, reentering the U.S. charts as every one of their albums hit the Top 30 on streaming services.

As one of the progenitors of the ’90s nu-metal movement, Deftones quickly evolved beyond the scene, embracing their individual influences to create an artistic alternative metal hybrid that balanced beauty and brutality. As one of the first groups to alternate heavy riffs and screamed vocals with more ethereal music and hushed singing, they influenced a generation of musicians with their trio of platinum-certified early albums: 1995’s Adrenaline, 1997’s Around the Fur, and 2000’s seminal White Pony. In the 2000s and 2010s, they pushed their sonic boundaries even further, departing from mainstream-friendly song structures in favor of increasingly expansive atmospherics on sets like 2003’s self-titled effort, 2010’s Diamond Eyes, and 2016’s Gore. In 2020, they kicked off their fourth decade as a unit with their ninth album, Ohms.
