Atrax Morgue "Omicidio" 7"
Everyone likes new music by dead people. Look at how many albums Tupac sold after he died. I try not to let the fact that Marco Corbelli is dead have too great an effect on whether or not I like his music, but in a way it def adds something good to the sound. The fact that in his life and in his music he had a strong infatuation with death and hospitals, and then went on to kill himself off, it makes his music all the more creepier. His later music really captured the essence of the feeling of being inside a hospital at night, and the tracks off this 7" from Bloodlust!, one unreleased from 1997 and one reprint from 1995, do this is well. These tracks are a little more professional sounding than other tracks from around those years, and they def made me feel uncomfortable, so in other words they are good. I'm not a huge fan of the over delayed vocals, but the electronics on a whole are just great. Extremely moody and cold, slow and repetitive, it's a top-notch Atrax Morgue release. There's nothing out there quite like Atrax Morgue, and there probably never will be. Also this is in an edition of 500 so you should have no trouble getting your hands on it.
