Slaughter Prod. Cassettes

The A5 bag cassettes that Slaughter Prod. released in the 90’s were such a pleasure.  It’s a simple, but interesting, presentation, and I was always really fond of them. The fact that there were very few (if any) disappointments in the ones I got my hands on doesn’t hurt.

I found a stash of these in a couple of crates I haven’t dipped into in ages.  Tonight I got  “Fac-Totum” and “Omega” from Die Sonne Satan and “Exile” from Drift burned into the computer. I had forgotten about Drift entirely, it was a Dark Ambient side project of the man behind Dead Body Love and Discordance. Good stuff. I don’t think that project ever had CD release or collection from any of the cassettes come out.

Slaughter Prod. was a label I had hoped to do something for at some point. These cassette releases, and  “Death Odors” series were among some of my favorite releases back then. There is a tone and mood that is captured in a lot of that material that is so definitive for how I view Dark Ambient and Death Industrial. It was a special label, and Marco Corbelli was always a good person to deal with. He’s gone now unfortunately, but aside from his own music in Atrax Morgue and Morder Machine etc. he left a brilliant capsule of dark electronics with the releases on Slaughter Prod.

  1. Agreed Scott. I loved many Slaughter releases and Death Odors was my first taste of “dark ambient.”

    I was so excited when Marco offered to release one of the first DEATHPILE tapes, and it was a lot of fun to play live with him in NYC as well. We worked on some design stuff together too.

    Marco and Slaughter will remain missed for sure.
