Atari Teenage Riot: Is This Hyperreal?

Posted on the 03 June 2011 by Hctf @hctf

Atari Teenage Riot

Leave it to the Germans to come up with a doom heavy album about the collapse of civilisation and the need to take action. Atari Teenage Riot are back with Is This Hyperreal?, their first studio album in ten years, a dark album asking questions of the internet age and the information overload that came with it.

Alec Empire, Nic Endo and CX Kidtronix howl at pretty much anything, with their own brand of digital hardcore still at the forefront. Loud, aggressive and abrasive, they hammer home the message. It's a bit much to swallow in one sitting, but when served in tranches - say three tracks at the time - the mayhem opens up to reveal pretty smart programming and adventurous keyboard parts.
