Marco Corbelli's artistic journey began in the early '90s. Under the pseudonym of Marco Rotula, he started to release a series of fanzines in A5 format. The first was "The Pleasure Agony", followed by "Sick" and "Murders". The aesthetics of these first fanzines were very sophisticated and the content deals with topics that would follow Marco Corbelli throughout his artistic career: sadism, schizophrenia, insanity, murder, psychosis, necrophilia, diseases, and most importantly, death. In 1993, heavily influenced by his obsessions, Marco Corbelli began his musical activities creating the Slaughter Productions label and the Atrax Morgue project. Greatly inspired by Italian power electronics act The Sodality and projects such as Whitehouse and Brighter Death Now, pioneers of a minimal, evil and visceral electronic, Atrax Morgue released his first tape In Search Of Death (1993) which would be followed by a series of amazing cassettes in the following years. In 1995, the activity of the Slaughter Productions became more and more frantic, releasing countless tapes. At the end of the same year they produced two important works by Atrax Morgue. The first was titled An Expression Of Psychic Masochism, with one only track that was based on unique white, painful, and horrific synth drones; generating a mental alteration that initiates brutal operation of psychic surgery, neuroses and split personality. The second was titled Catch My Agony with two tracks that were founded on abrasive synth drones; the harsh and glacial sound atmosphere melts with murder, necrophilia, and dead bodies forming a macabre collage. Work was inspired by novel written by Hugh Fleetwood The Order of Death (1976), which has also been put on the screen by the Italian director Roberto Faenza (1983). It was originally packed in an outstanding bundle, literally stuck in a real mousetrap. The smell of death is saturated in every sound produced by the brilliant and twisted mind of Marco Corbelli in these two works. Anxiety, alienation, and hypochondria turn into a deep paranoia in pain. Without hesitation, the bodies are emptied, leaving the field to an electronics purulence of rare power disconcerting. Comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve; Includes a sheet with credits and art from first original Slaughter Productions logo (from the first fanzines); Black inner sleeve; Remastered from the original tapes; 140 gram vinyl; Edition of 199.
