Nic Endo (born January 7, 1976) is a Japanese-German-American noise musician who plays with the German digital hardcore group Atari Teenage Riot. The daughter of a Japanese mother and a German father, Endo was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, US.
After ATR effectively broke-up in 2000, Endo released an experimental solo album entitled Cold Metal Perfection. Released by Fatal Recordings, an explicitly feminist offshoot of Digital Hardcore Recordings, Cold Metal Perfection was named as one of the top 20 albums of 2001 by Alternative Press.
In 2001, Endo assisted in the production of Alec Empire's solo album, Intelligence and Sacrifice. She has also since been a part of Empire's touring band, and was also involved with his follow-up album Futurist (2005). In 2010 ATR reformed and Endo has taken Hanin Elias's slot as the female vocalist in ATR. Her trademark style is her black leather and white face paint overlaid by the characters 抵抗, meaning "resistance".
Endo has spoken about her appreciation for Alice Coltrane, James Chance, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Destroy All Monsters, Freddie Hubbard, Led Zeppelin, Maya Deren, John Coltrane, Brainticket, the Velvet Underground, the Doors, Neu!, and Sun Ra.
