Digital Hardcore

Digital hardcore is a music genre fusing elements of hardcore punk and various forms of electronic music. Digital hardcore music is typically high-tempo and abrasive, combining the speed, heaviness and attitude of hardcore punk and riot grrrl with electronic music such as hardcore techno, jungle, and industrial rock. The music was first defined by the band Atari Teenage Riot, who formed in Berlin, Germany in 1992. The use of the electric guitar is retained and it is played in conjunction with samplers, synthesizers and drum machines. While the use of guitar and electronic instruments is a requirement, traditional bass guitars and drum kits are optional. Vocals are more often shouted than sung by more than one member of the group. Typically, the lyrics are highly politicised and espouse left-wing or anarchist ideals.
