"Exclusive presentation of the complete M.B. / Maurizio Bianchi recordings from the early 1980s originally issued on LP. Starting from Sterile Records' "Symphony for a Genocide" to Broken Flag's "The Plain Truth", passing through DYS' "Mectpyo Bakterium" and all the records privately issued by M.B. on his Mectpyo Sound. A slipcase with 10 CDs reproducing the 10 LP issued between 1981 and 1984, plus all the tracks by M.B. from international LP compilations and a large selection of tracks from international K7 compilations. Each CD reproduces the original artwork and layout, with a new numbered inlay card. Also included is a 84 page booklet with original atworks and collages, M.B. playlists, interviews and reviews, as well as essays by M.B. on S.P.K., Whitehouse and Come, T.G., Monte Cazazza, Metabolists, Conrad Schnitzler and excerpts from the "Dictionary of the Ultra-Glaciality". Edition limited to 200 numbered copies, including the following CDs: Symphony for a Genocide (1981) Harsh waves of electronic pulsations overload the circuitry causing sensory breakdown. Maximum electronics! Also included are the 3 tracks from the 1980 "International Compilation 1" on Die Form's Bain Total. Menses (1981) The two long siutes "Yra" and "Scent" pessimistically excludes any possibility to survive. Suicidal album. Death is a pleasure after a side of this record. Also included are the two tracks from the Hater's "Nowhere to Play" compilation (1982), as well as the very early "Milan Bruits" from Der Plan's "Fix Planet" compilation (1981). Neuro Habitat / Moerter Unter Uns (1982) M.B.'s at his creative peak. There are actually melodies present, dense and dark that mutate into harsh electronic outbursts. Also included is "Plutoniumetrio" from the Come Organisation's "Fuer Ilse Koch" compilation (1982). Regel (1982) M.B. experimentation with noise syndrome has developed into a powerful stylistic electronic music, coherent and dynamic. Also includes "Acido Prussico" from Broken Flag's "Neuengamme" compilation (1982). Mectpyo Bakterium (1981) Two extended electronic pieces which may prove to be the best compositions M.B. has created. Also included are two tracks from "40 days/40 Nights" and "International Frienship" compilations (1983). Das Testament (1982) A pulsating and visionary work dedicated to those who will suffer in the future for our choice to irreparably spoil our natural and social ambient. Also included in 30 minutes of M.B. live in Milano on January 1st, 1983. Endometrio (1980-81) M.B. takes the distance from the movement of the industrial bruitists, presenting what he calls "biologic music", sounds synthetically produced by the manipulation and transformation of pre-recorded electronic sources. Also included are excerpts from various international compilations on cassette (1980/1983). Carcinosi (1979/1982) This record represents an injection of new, more open-minded and anti-conformist methodologies. A disquieting sound dilutes and coagulates. Also included are two tracks from Broken Flag's "Axis Sally" (1983) and "Frankenstein Juke Box" compilation tapes. The Plain Truth (1983) A very atmospheric records including two long suites titled "The Plain Truth" and "M.B. 55 T.D. 56". Also included is an exclusive interview recorded at Radio popolare, Milano, on January 1st, 1983. Armaghedon (1984) Soundtrack to the film with the same title. The most obscure and elusive M.B. output. The original LP was never distributed, most of the copies were destroyed by M.B. after its release.
