Visconti was born in Rome, Italy. In 2001 he formed XP8 with Marko Resurreccion and Paul Toohill. Visconti contributed to the band with songwriting, synth production and arrangements till XP8's eventual split in 2014. He is also a DJ focused on Industrial Dance music, and the underground Electronic Dance scene in general, having played all over the globe during his fifteen years career.
In 2006, he joined two other acts, Unter Null and Grendel, as member of the live lineup of each band. The collaboration with Unter Null did not last long, as he left the band after 6 months on October 28 after a concert held during the Swedish Tinnitus Festival: the split was on friendly terms. Visconti's collaboration with Grendel ended in 2009 to allow him to concentrate once again more on XP8.
In early 2007, he was then recruited by VNV Nation as keyboard player for their Judgement world tour. At the end of the tour he returned to Rome, where he resumed DJ duties in the various underground clubs of the city.
In 2008 he joined the Faderhead live band, and provided additional production to the song "Another Dead Boy" on Faderhead's third studio album "FH3", and then to the songs "Baby Firefly" and "Beautiful Freak" on the follow-up, "Black Friday". In the following years, his role as additional producer would grow and become a staple in Faderhead's releases. Visconti received countless nicknames since he joined Faderhead, the most well-known being "The Lord".
Marco's other interests include Thelema, Gnosticism, Voodoo and chaos magick. Italian's science-fiction and counter-culture author Francesco Dimitri, also a well-known neo-pagan, was inspired by Visconti's online persona to create Dagon, a signature characted featured in Dimitri's novels.
He currently resides in London, UK, where he moved in early 2013.
