Record/Vinyl + Digital Album
Cut My Throat is recorded straight off on in a day. We are in 1996. The first CD released by artist on Slaughter Productions contains two paths based on typical analog drones that characterize all the first production of Atraxt Morgue. The tracks on here are monolithic machines of industrial death that are portrayed in lovingly grating and rasping detail, with engines of soul rapine and pulsating contraptions eager to slice their way through soft flesh. This is a seminal power electronics masterpiece for this unforgotten cult artist!
The record has been pressed on 140 gr virgin black vinyl and comes in a deluxe wooden box with two LPs bonus (that includes reissue of Catch My Agony, An Expression Of Psychic Masochism and Progetto Morte tapes), various sheets and a certificate numbered in 90 copies. This one is definitely not be missed!

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 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 succeeding 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 side-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 discography. 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 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).
Marco Corbelli’s Atrax Morgue is anxious and psychotic side of the electronic noise; he is a sinister, synthesizer-based jarring project, rich with pulsating tones and throbbing static beats. His severely distorted electronic voice reverberates through the fore ground like the spoken word performance of a homicidal maniac while the music beneath affords a suitable and macabre adieu for your deceased soul. This is the sonic equivalent of regulating the blood flow through a severed jugular, the life slowly draining, the hands kept warm and strictly in the process …
Marco sadly left this world committing suicide by hanging on 6th May 2007.
"So, obsessions have found a way to come out. Through violent and cold analogue electronic sounds, and my own voice."
I cannot praise this album enough. This album is absolutely terrifying! The many starts and stops creates this very h settling tension. Each start expands on the stopper idea previously. It’s like the music equivalent of walking through thick fog while passing out multiple times throughout trying to find a place to orientate yourself. There may or may not be something sinister in that fog, but you don’t want to stick around to find out. Bought the vinyl so I summon the fog demons through spe showhornwithteeth
