One Day As A Lion
One Day As A Lion with Rage Against The Machine singer Zack de la Rocha and former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore issued their self-titled five track debut EP in the summer of '08.
In an online post the group was described as "a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask."
The group's name was taken from the infamous '70 black and white photo taken by Chicano photographer George Rodriguez containing the caption 'It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.'

A critic termed One Day As A Lion's self-titled debut EP as "Led Zeppelin meets Dr. Dre." If that's the case, it must have been a brief encounter because the Zeppelin influence is way down in the mix (if there at all).
