Mauthausen Orchestra

Mauthausen Orchestra

Real Name:
Pierpaolo Zoppo
One of the early Italian power-electronics projects, Mauthausen Orchestra, in the person of Pierpaolo Zoppo, started in 1982. His work explored morbid subjects, usually extreme sex, perversion, tortures and disease, and the sound was a brutal collage of noise, electronics distortions and inhuman vocals. Mauthausen Orchestra stopped in 1986, some recordings from 1988 were published ten years later by Xn Recordings. In 1997 Zoppo resurrected the project and released some new material, while a series of reissues of the early cassettes was published by Slaughter Productions.
Born on 27th April 1963
Died on 16th June 2012.

While Whitehouse pioneered Power Electronics, it was Mauthusen Orchestra who perfected the sound. any one of the original 80s tapes delivers extreme power electronics at its most well executed. Feedback squeals, evil walls of noise, and on a select few tape horrifying vocals. The 1997 CD is also good, but albums fter that I can't say I'm a fan.

Regardless, the 80s work of Mauthausen Orchestra remains a pinnacle of Power Electronics perfection. An absolute must for fans of the classic, raw, chaotic and evil noise industrial.
