Crafting quasi-political music with a punk influence and techno beats, German band Atari Teenage Riot paved the way for a new genre called digital hardcore when they emerged in 1992. After a 10 year hiatus, they reformed and released their fourth studio album this week, Is This Hyperreal?.
Atari Teenage Riot was featured in ARTROCKER, Record Collector and Metal Hammer. Have a look at the magazine scans after the jump.
Described by the magazine as “true originals” and compared to the likes of the “Beastie Boys, Crass, and Ministry“, ATR mixes “hardcore punk, hip-hop, and pounding techno.”
ATR’s iPhone app has been delayed by the German iTunes store due to a dispute over its content.
