It feels familiar to listen to italian Marco Corbelli, also known as Atrax Morgue. One can possibly rebuild its influences from 79 to 90: the most haunting of early Throbbing Gristle, Whitehouse, early Merzbow and Lustmord. Clearly reconstructing the ways of industrial, noise, dark ambient and power electronics, these early cassette pieces are musical documents of someone with complete control of his intentions and assumedly essaying over pervertion.
There is a sublime minimalistic subtlety in his music. Decrepit white noise signals turned into timid beats, sound processing of mechanical tools and field recordings, Boyd Rice like organ / synthetizer mantras, channelled into the perfect suiting range of frequencies of the cassette tape.
