Hanin Elias (born May 31 1972 in DamascusTanguay, Lewis, [http://www.section3.com/interviews/atari.shtml Atari Teenage Riot: Alec Empire and Carl Crack] , Section 3, accessed 2007-07-23. Crack: "Hanin was born in Damascus, Syria."] ) is a German industrial/techno artist. She was a member of Atari Teenage Riot (ATR) and is currently a solo artist.

After the non-definitive stop of Atari Teenage Riot in 2000 and the subsequent death of Carl Crack due to a drug overdose, the members of ATR split up for a while and Hanin set up her own record label, Fatal Recordings.

Hanin spent much of her early life living in Syria. A member of a large family living under her autocratic father when the family moved to Berlin she ran away from home and started squatting in the city. She started participating in the Berlin punk and goth scenes. Possessed of both startling good looks and a powerful and distinctive voice she developed a musical career and ended up being a founder member of Atari Teenage Riot. After a brief, unhappy spell with independent label Phonogram, ATR set up their own label, Digital Hardcore Recordings which became notorious with a unique musical sound - a hybrid of punk, techno and heavy metal, also known as Digital Hardcore.

After the members of ATR split, Hanin's DHR offspin 'Fatal' went independent and established itself in Berlin instead of London. She has released several albums and her Fatal label now boasts such artists as The Vanishing, Phallus Uber Alles, Kunst and Tara Delong. She has also performed a plethora of duets and remixes with such influential artists as Le Tigre, Thurston Moore, J Mascis and of course, Alec Empire. In 2005, she began working with the acclaimed industrial project Pigface, and joined them for a tour of the United States.

In 2006, it was announced that Fatal Recordings was to close. Elias announced on her MySpace blog that she would be taking an indefinite hiatus from the music industry and relocating to French Polynesia with her family.
