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.
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.
completely fascinating conversation going through his entire history, from growing up in Bensonhurst to taking his brand of PE all over the world. Serial killers, self disgust, graffiti, and so much more are touched on in this comprehensive episode. It was a true honor for us have a deep discussion with one of our absolute favorite artists.
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.
We will never get enough of Slaughter Productions, so we decided to take a look at 3 individual cassettes released by the label: Stratvm Terror “The Only True Septic Whore,” Slogun “A Breed Apart,” and Contagious Orgasm “Defective Merchandise.” All 3 tapes represent different countries and styles that highlight the curation of Slaughter. We add a cassette compilation – “Slaughter Age 95” – on the Extra Noisextra for our patrons, showcasing Marco’s knack for putting together outstanding comps.
October has crept in, and we begin the month by speaking with Subklinik, aka Chad Davis. Subklinik has been wandering the landscapes of death industrial for over two decades and let us in to his world and process. We get into his early days, working with Marco Corbelli, his relationship with death, and much more in this captivating discussion.
Stephen Petrus (Murderous Vision/Live Bait Recording Foundation) joins us to discuss the classic “Death Odors” compilation on Slaughter Productions. Petrus talks about the importance of compilations to his journey, in terms of both listening and releasing. This episode is coming out in tandem with a brand new comp that Stephen has curated entitled “Dies Natalis Invicti Solis” featuring Brighter Death Now, Deutsch Nepal, Contrastate and many more. The CD will be available for pre order on Friday December 4th.
We embark on a yearly Halloween tradition as we go deep on Atrax Morgue “Woundfucker,” recorded on Halloween of 1994. An album that has been with all of us for as long as we can remember, “Woundfucker” never fails to affect all of our souls. We relay some of Marco Corbelli’s thoughts via old interviews and dissect what we revere about Atrax Morgue.
It’s our Halloween episode and we thought there was no one more appropriate to cover than Atrax Morgue. We listen to and discuss his “Paranoia” CD on Old Europa Cafe. We cover death, obsession and the darkness that Marco Corbelli infused into every moment of his recordings. In lieu of recent listening, we talk about some of our favorite Italian Giallo movies, a genre that was highly influential for Atrax Morgue. Slip on some black gloves and sharpen your knife’s blade.
