Rage Against the Machine are nearly done recording their third
album, according to producer Brendan O'Brien. While he was hesitant
to describe the new work, O'Brien, who also produced Rage's Evil
Empire (1996), said it adds new sounds to the band's funk-rock attack
and still "hits pretty darn hard." Rage are scheduled to play the Amsterdam,
Netherlands, portion of the Tibetan Freedom Concert next month.
