Atrax Morgue - _Cut My Throat_
(Slaughter Productions, 1996)
by: Andrew Lewandowski (6 out of 10)
After producing numerous cassettes under the Atrax Morgue moniker throughout the past three years, Marco Corbelli has released his first four CDs in 1996. The most recent of which is this limited edition CD (250 copies with a bandage on the jewel case), the ominously titled _Cut My Throat_. This one continues the sparsity of his past works; one constantly moving sound pattern occupies the foreground, while random distortion and noises dwell in the background. During the first track, "Before", these sounds are quite docile; they evoke images ranging from sirens and chainsaws to more childlike (ie: something that would appeal to a four year old) patterns, and never become overbearing. The second track, the longer "I Cut Yours", is comparatively harsher, largely due to more background distortion and a pulsating foreground, yet still never reaches an unlistenable level. Although this makes for an intriguing listen, it lacks both the harsh and disturbing nature of better noise artists.
