Chris Moore, better known as Atari Blitzkrieg, is a Virginia based American hip hop artist. He is known for his heavy use of alliteration, multi-syllabic rhyming schemes and incorporation of various genres into his music. He is also known as the producer, Krohme.

A review on Music Zeitgeist states, "Atari Blitzkrieg is not a noise-core post-electro-clash/Blade Runner tributary. Evoking something more along the lines of Jedi Mind Tricks sharing kind with Common and maybe even MC. 900 Ft. Jesus, Atari Blitzkrieg is ready to drop a fat collection of eloquence and Cheshire Cat propensity on the sleepy indie music world."[1]

History[edit]

Chris Moore was exposed to a wide range of musical genres at an early age. He began experimenting with music as a cellist in elementary school. This led to acquiring a thrift store turntable at 12, a drum machine at 14 and a microphone at 15. Atari (as Krohme) would then create his first recorded songs in 1995. His first on-record appearance as Atari wasn't until 2006 with a few appearances on Krohme's The Beasts Released: South of Heaven Volume 1, which led to 2007's Rokkonorrottenhell single, featuring Royce Da 5'9, Groovie Mann from the industrial band My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and producer Krohme.[1]

Since then, he has been nominated as an URB Next 1000, released close to 400 songs, unveiled 25 EPs, 3 full-length albums, dozens of guest appearances while working with some of the biggest names in music; Speech of Arrested Development, The Game, Sid Wilson, Lord Jamar, Daedelus, Rapper Pooh, Louis Logic, Vast Aire, Guilty Simpson, LMNO, Ryu of Styles of Beyond, Breez Evahflowin, Motion Man and Wildchild to name a few. His greatest success came in 2011 with the release of Super, his Super Nintendo-themed release.
