Atrax Morgue - Triple Post

'In Search Of Death'
'Sickness Report'
Atrax Morgue
1993, 1994, 1996

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Death Industrial, Power Electronics
For Fans Of: Alberich, Brighter Death Now, Genocide Organ, Genocide Lolita

Atrax Morgue was the moniker under which Italian noise musician, Marco Corbelli operated under from the early nineties right up until his suicide in 2007. Much like his fellow death industrial peers, Corbelli takes the extreme pulses and blats of power electronics and channels them into much more rhythmic and clinical compositions. While Corbelli's work does tend to focus on the usual subject matter (death, rape, murder, necrophilia etc etc) Atrax Morgue has a morbid fascination with disease, medical procedures and the human body, with the cold clinical imagery a fitting background to the hideous squelches and screeches being milked out of an abused synthesizer. As well as this, Corbelli's body of work is heavily influenced by the pulpy, violent imagery of 1970s/80s Giallo films (as evidenced in some of the samples on In Search Of Death).
Contained here are, in my opinion, three of Atrax Morgue's best works spanning the early and mid nineties - but I strongly suggest delving deeper into more of Corbelli's work as it's all as equally engrossing and unsettling as the releases here.
