Originally conceived as a side project of acclaimed Industrial Techno act K-Nitrate, Audio War has now developed into a fully-fledged band. Drawing on influences as diverse as Rage Against The Machine, Senser, Sonic Violence, Meat Beat Manifesto and The Prodigy, the result invites comparisons with Death In Vegas or Apollo 440, whilst retaining a distinctively original take on the riffs-and-breaks principle. Audio War is the brainchild of Graham Rayner, songwriter for Cubanate and several tracks on the Gran Turismo soundtrack and K-Nitrate programmer Christian Weber. Audio War began life in 2000. A lo-fi, aggressive mini-album entitled Defeat was released within months, garnering unanimous rave reviews. Fiercely confrontational, yet accessible, Defeat was a superlative debut. Negativity now refines these elements and pushes Audio War's sound in a more controlled direction without losing any of the power and aggression.
