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 will 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, with their 1987 LP Beyond Unknown Pleasures and from projects as Whitehouse and Brighter Death Now, pioneers of a minimal, evil, and visceral electronic, Atrax Morgue released his first tape In Search Of Death which will be followed by a series of amazing cassettes in the following years. Tape after tape, with the help of an analog synthesizer Sequential Circuits Six-Trak, a microphone connected with a Yamaha multi-effect, tape decks, and a mixer, Marco Corbelli blows up emotions and delusions, cutting out the hard way inspired portraits of phobias and deviation. With this minimal equipment Marco has created all his shocking releases, excluding 1995's Cut My Throat (UMA 124LP), where he used the Crumar Spirit and in the latest works before he died, as for the collaboration with M.B., he also used RE-201 Space Echo (the only other machines he had used were Crumar Bit One and the Roland 909, both of which were used only for the Mörder Machine project). The main manifesto of Atrax Morgue is the analysis of the death, his perfection, and complete habituation: injections of death to continue to live. The hum of the synth, the roar of noise and fights razor are often repeated loops, where each track has a compact structure, following the main theme (of death). Urashima present a red wooden box with five CDs that include reissues of eleven terrific titles from his legendary label Slaughter Productions: In Search Of Death (1993), Exterminate (1995), Esthetik Of A Corpse, Catch My Agony (1995), Collection In Formaldeide (1994), Mechanic Asphyxia (1997), Death-Orgasm Connector (2003), Sweetly (1996), Woundfucker (1998), HomicidalI (1997), and An Expression Of Psychic Masochism (1995). Each single CD comes inside cardboard wallet with credits and new artwork; Edition of 300 (numbered).
