Mortar – self-titled
It’s the dead of winter and a Slaughter Productions tape felt appropriate for seasonal hibernation. Mortar’s self titled cassette fit the bill perfectly. Mortar is a necro project of Moreno Daldosso of Murder Corporation. Ancient times, old stones, sand, dirt, and storms are all present on this excellent 90s Italian cassette. Let this be the soundtrack to your crypt.
Hydra – Power
Hydra is an absolute favorite project of Noisextra and we felt is was a fine time to explore “Power.” We dive into this classic tape on Bloodlust! from 1996 and are filled with every emotion throughout the discussion of this cassette. The world lost Greg Scott in 2003, but he forever lives on in this and all his releases. All you need is force.
Killer Bug – Brutal Rainbow
A pure 90s noise tape was called for, and Killer Bug “Brutal Rainbow” answered that call. On the Noise label from Taiwan, this one tears the ground asunder. Killer Bug is the first incarnation of Kazumoto Endo, and while the cut up technique is present, “Brutal Rainbow” goes heavy on the trash, the porn, and the total noise.
Atrax Morgue feat. Morder Machine – DeathShow
Our yearly Marco Corbelli episode has arrived and this time we went for something a little different — Morder Machine “DeathShow.” A project that existed directly alongside Atrax Morgue, Morder Machine utilized a bit more structure and rhythm without losing any darkness and obsession. We pull quotes directly about Morder Machine and relay Marco’s thoughts on the project. Additionally, we continue our tradition of choosing three Italian horror movies to highlight before discussing the album. Welcome to DeathShow.
Randy Greif – Golden Joy Club (with guest Shane English)
Shane English returns and brings us a tape from his deep cassette culture collection perfect for autumn days — Randy Greif’s “Golden Joy Club.” We go to abstract realms of mid 80s industrial sound with this very cool artifact on Greif’s own Swinging Axe label. Revel in the doorway of sleep go towards heaven’s hole.
Mental Destruction – When Madness Strikes
Mental Destruction bring a truly unique take on industrial with “When Madness Strikes.” Standing apart from their peers, Mental Destruction was an orthodox Christian industrial band from Sweden.
Teatro Satanico – Mephitic Coitus
Satanic sexual madness cuts deep as we stab our ceremonial knives into Teatro Satanico “Mephitic Coitus” from 1994. Originally released on Hex Minora’s BV Tapes label and later re-released on Chondritic Sound, this cassette is for all the dirty rotten scoundrels. Give in to your secret impulses, give in to Teatro Satanico.
Mortal Vision – Nacht Musik
Felt like a good time to dig into a G.R.O.S.S tape, so Greh suggested Mortal Vision “Nacht Musik.” An early… Read more Mortal Vision – Nacht Musik
Government Alpha – Erratic
Pure Japanese harsh noise was called for this week, so what better cassette to dig into than Government Alpha “Erratic”? Released in 1996 on his own Xerxes label, this tape sets the tone for what was to come for Government Alpha. At times unsettling, at other times brutal, and at all times astonishing, “Erratic” is a high mark for 90s noise. Fall into the vortex with Government Alpha.
