ATRAX MORGUE - The Pain Is Severe

Marco Corbellis artistic journey began in the early 90s. 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 would follow Marco Corbelli 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 and projects such as Whitehouse and Brighter Death Now, pioneers of a minimal, evil and visceral electronic, Atrax Morgue released his first tape In Search Of Death (1993) which would be followed by a series of amazing cassettes in the following years. In 1995, the activity of the Slaughter Productions became more and more frantic, releasing countless tapes. At the end of the same year they produced two important works by Atrax Morgue. The first was titled An Expression Of Psychic Masochism, with one only track that was based on unique white, painful, and horrific synth drones; generating a mental alteration that initiates brutal operation of psychic surgery, neuroses and split personality. The second was titled Catch My Agony with two tracks that were founded on abrasive synth drones; the harsh and glacial sound atmosphere melts with murder, necrophilia, and dead bodies forming a macabre collage. Work was inspired by novel written by Hugh Fleetwood The Order of Death (1976), which has also been put on the screen by the Italian director Roberto Faenza (1983). It was originally packed in an outstanding bundle, literally stuck in a real mousetrap. The smell of death is saturated in every sound produced by the brilliant and twisted mind of Marco Corbelli in these two works. 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. Comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve; Includes a sheet with credits and art from first original Slaughter Productions logo (from the first fanzines); Black inner sleeve; Remastered from the original tapes; 140 gram vinyl; Edition of 199." - Urashima.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
