Monstercat veterans RIOT introduce their most epic project to date, the storyline-based, immersive sonic journey known as “Dogma Resistance.” In the form of a ten-track studio album and accompanying visual comic book by company HERØ, RIOT brings to life the story of Raymond Colt and his descendants in a fusion of past and future. “Dogma Resistance” begins in the year 1936, when Colt and his sidekick accidentally uncover a nefarious force of evil that the world has never seen before. Fast-forward to the year 2045 and this evil, known as Deinos, has been ruling the world for over a century. Follow along as Colt‘s descendants rage a war to fight for all of the humankind against the alien enemy, an adventure that will test them to their very limits and brings them into contact with things of legend, such as the protector of the long-lost city of Atlantis.
Each of RIOT‘s ten tracks evokes a different phase of the plotline, beginning with the adventurous and assaulting “Jungle Fury” and the drum & bass influenced “Disorder,” which signifies the rebirth of Deinos. RIOT explores a myriad of sound and genre inspirations on the album, from eastern exotic instrumentals in “Desert to Desert” to fury-filled bass in the climactic “Overkill.” A storyline of this complexity is truly an artistic achievement, something that RIOT has been hard at work on for quite some time.
