What would it be like if Atari Teenage Riot wasn’t German. What if they were Japanese? They wouldn’t scream as much about the political climate but they would still be full of incredible amounts of thunderous musical aggression. The Mad Capsule Markets are that band. Two parts of Japanese Rock that I haven’t touched upon in this theme is J-Rock’s penchants for Noise and Industrial. MCM falls towards the latter, employing the same digital hardcore style as ATR but with more guitars (a throwback to their days as a metal band). Their best known in the US for this song from Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3:

Song 398- “Pulse” by Mad Capsule Markets
