Marco Corbelli's artistic journey began in the early 90's. 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 “Cut my throat'', 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 putrescence is palpable, and one could almost smell and taste the miasma of decay that pervades the entire box. 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. The psychopathological sound is white, painful and horrific; creates a mental alteration that initiates brutal operation of psychic surgery, neuroses and split personality. Crosses terrifying rooms lit by neon lights, corridors filled with gruesome tools, machines of blood and bits of human tissue floating in jars of formalin. 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).

The sound of “Collection In Formaldeide’’ is simply devastating. Crosses terrifying rooms lit by neon lights, corridors filled with gruesome tools, machines of blood and bits of human tissue floating in jars of formalin. 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).

Uma 127 Masonna – Open your cunt Lp + Tape + Photo in wooden box 49 €

Along with Merzbow and Hijokaidan, Masonna is one of the best (known) Japanese noise projects. A psychedelic touch, cascades of electronic noise and vocal belching mixed together constitute the ingredients of Mademoiselle Anne Sanglante Ou Notre Nymphomanie Auréolé, the double-barrelled named for Masonna . Yamazaki “Maso” Takushi created Masonna in 1987 and he started recordings for his own legendary label Coquette . His plentiful productions were presented in a ultra limited edition, sometime totally confidential (one sole copy), on cassette , seven inch acetate disc produced by a portable cutting machine and Minidisc. They contributed to create a mythology based above all on the astonishing intensity with which “Maso” devastates and reprocesses the vocal cords, in a true total electronic song. In his impressive live performances he created and electrically overcharged universe, punctuating the electric and vocal sonorous power with some quite moments and brief interruptions, conferring a very particular dynamic to his pieces. Studio recordings are making full use skillfully editing how to edit cut-up, in which elaborate lump-sum making has been performed, the psychedelic taste for each track of time is taken into consideration, Yamazaki extends musical width.

Urashima is proud to present an amazing Coquette production, released on Beast 666 Tapes in 1989 and on Vanilla Records in 1990, on double format Lp and Tape (same tracking list on each format).
