Comments: The recipe behind Atari Teenage Riot's success is simple: four parts loud music; two parts anarchist, anti-fascist, and anti-Nazi views; one part techno; and just enough chaos to make a person's head spin without losing control.
After an 11-year absence, Atari Teenage Riot is starting its comeback tour with Is This Hyperreal? Their newest album showcases what the band does best by blending politically charged lyrics with electro beats and uber-punk vocals. All I can say is that this is but the next step in creating a mind-blowing audio rave.
If you're planning on raging anytime soon, I'd suggest tracks 2 and 3.
