New deluxe reissue from Urashima: Atrax Morgue – Ripper Box 3LP + 2CD

am1

Ripper Box

Atrax Morgue is the brainchild of Marco Corbelli. This sound project started in the early nineties and focused on various areas related to the field of psychopathology: murder, violent death, sadism, necrophilia, schizophrenia and insanity. The primary influences come from projects such as Brighter Death Now and Whitehouse, pioneers of a minimal, evil and visceral electronic sound; and from the legendary projects Mauthausen Orchestra and The Sodality. The main manifesto of Atrax Morgue is the analysis of the death, his perfection and complete habituation: injections of death to continue to live.

Ripper Box follows only two months after the immediately sold out Necro Box and continues the tribute to the degenerate art of Atrax Morgue, one of the greatest exponents of the industrial/power electronics in Italy. First Lp in the  box is New York Ripper, originally released in 1994 on the Slaughter Productions label. It is a work of obsessive sounds, with the use of very low frequencies, synthetic and disturbing. The psychopathological sound is white, painful and horrific; creates a mental alteration that initiates the brutal operation of psychic surgery, neuroses and split personality. The following Lp is Lesion 22, released on Less Than Zero  in 1996. 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, screaming contraptions eager to slice their way through soft flesh.

The putrescence is tangible, and one could almost smell and taste the miasma of decay that pervades the entire vinyl. The third and final Lp is Spasmosynthetics, released on Labirynth tape in 1997. The four tracks on LP are based on obsessive synth drones. The smell of death is soaked in every sound produced by the brilliant and twisted mind of Marco Corbelli. 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 concept is to create sounds associated with a diseased brain, a murderess, a person who has abnormal behavior towards society.”
