The Mad Capsule Markets original poster
This poster for The Mad Capsule Markets (originally known as The Mad Capsule Market's and Berrie) were a Japanese band that formed in 1985 and were active until 2006.
The band became known for their experimental style, which melded various kinds of electronic music and punk rock.
The Mad Capsule Markets posters represented hardcore-influenced punk rock group, slowly evolving into a nu metal band that combined heavy guitars with hard programmed beats and many experimental electronic elements, surf-rock, and pop punk influences.
The Mad Capsule Markets released albums from 1990 to 2005 and recorded over 12 records. Their earlier lyrical content was more political, with lyrical themes becoming more abstract with later releases. Their earlier work, was mainly punk influenced but quickly began to incorporate different influences in their music.
The band became more directly influenced by the Digital Hardcore movement when Alec Empire and (Atari Teenage Riot) remixed two songs from the Digidogheadlock era. From there, they started to use more electronic/breakbeat/industrial elements in their songs.
This is a promotional poster used at the time of the single release of Tribe in 2002.
