Ain Soph – Kshatriya

Ain Soph “Kshatriya” is a special album and we enter the world it invokes. We discuss the many references presented within this completely unique sonic testament. Tara went deep with the research for this episode and enriches the album’s impact. One of Italy’s great exports, Ain Soph sends us into many new realms ripe for discovery.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Tara expands the discussion on the themes of Ain Soph, including the history behind the term that is the band’s name.

Atrax Morgue – Death-Orgasm Connector

he annual Atrax Morgue episode has arrived. This year, we place a bag over our heads with “Death-Orgasm Connector.” A CD from 2003, this album distills the greatness of Atrax Morgue into 10 of his most potent tracks. It’s never a bad time to listen to Atrax Morgue, but the end of October is truly the perfect atmosphere for “Death-Orgasm Connector. The game is closed. Marco Corbelli forever.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon we each chose an Italian horror movie to dissect, as is our Atrax episode tradition. This segment is over 30 minutes.

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.

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.

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.

Atrax Morgue – Black Slaughter

Our annual Atrax Morgue episode has arrived, and this time we take a look at “Black Slaughter.” A different type of release than covered on our previous Atrax episodes, here Marco Corbelli utilizes samples instead of vocals to convey the thoughts of a psychopathic mind. Included in “Black Slaughter” is an insert with notes on each track by Marco himself, and we read his words throughout. We are ready. Marco Corbelli forever.
