Multi-Genre Artist SINTHETIK MESSIAH Drops THE OTHER LA Collaboration Track & ATR Cover


January 2, 2021 – 
Multi-genre artist, SINTHETIK MESSIAH has just unleashed two new singles for Christmas.

“In My Dreams” is a split collaboration with THE OTHER LA. The band also presents their cover of ATARI TEENAGE RIOT‘s, “Destroy 2000 Years Of Culture.”  

The track, “In My Dreams” was originally produced by Cj Pierce of DROWNING POOL for THE OTHER LA‘s self-titled album that was released in 2016. THE OTHER LA approached Bug Gigabyte to take the music and bring it on a more twisted,  electronic journey.

“Cj Peirce is one of the greatest guitarists on the planet. I wanted to make something that even he,  himself would jam out to.” -Bug.

After receiving the original track stems, Bug took the audio , ground it up into a new composition and added more drums, guitars, synths and vocals. Grammy nominated engineer Joe Haze (Lords of Acid/The Banishment) then used his mastery of analog mix and mastering technology to glue all the chaos of the track together.

SINTHETIK MESSIAH‘s first cover was meant to be an updated American version of the 1997 track “Destroy 2000 Years Of Culture” by the revolutionary electronic noise act, ATARI TEENAGE RIOT (ATR).  Originally ATR sampled the track “Dead Skin Mask” by American metal  act SLAYER, from their 1990 album, Seasons in the Abyss

In continuing the tradition of the ATR song and ideas behind both acts’ music, Bug Gigabyte sampled the same SLAYER track and gave a new spin to the fundamentals of what makes ATARI TEENAGE RIOT. Once Bug finished composing the cover, he then passed it on to Grammy nominated engineer, Joe Haze(Lords Of Acid, The Banishment) for mixing and mastering with analog technology.
