Biography

What would later be known as Gotherfall saw its first solid line-up solidify in early 2000 in the form of Trauma and Maelsthorn (Guitars) , Cypher (drums), Synthronic (keyboards), Ebhoren (bass) and Decay (vocals). For personnal reasons, Synthronic quit the band, followed by Ebhoren who was quickly replaced by Neurasthenic, with whom the band had been negociating the recording of a first LP and who became a full member, fiulling in on bass and orchestrations. Meanwhile, Maelsthorn had strung together the final arangements that would become Blacksphere Architecture, the first Gotherfall album. The primary meaning of the term Gotherfall, is “the Fall of God, Our Father”; “Gother” being formed of the words Gott (God) and Father. Gott is simply the German word for God. The use of the diaeresis adds another interpretation to the meaning of the term Gotherfall. Gotherfall being opposed to all forms of organized religion, as well as passive adherance to any belief system, the addition of the diaeresis brings to light the term Gotter, meaning Gods and thus transforming the meaning of Gotherfall into “the Fall of Gods” and placing it on the “e” to add to the word’s esthetic.

As you may know, the term Meta can bear several meanings such as “above”, “after”, “transformation” or more likely: “beyond”. It is absolutely without pretention that we call our music Meta Black Metal. The term “black metal” has changed throughout the years and has lost much of its meaning, overused by many.
