MÖRSER started in 1995 within a circle of bands such as ACME, SYSTRAL and CAROL, which then had already been presenting a new type of hardcore music, more aggressive and disturbing in sound. Their debut "Two Hours to Doom" on PER KORO made hardcore music from Bremen known to a wider audience and has now even been released on MC by PUREMINDSRECORDS from Chemor, Malaysia; it somehow had become a point of reference in grindcore music.
The line up with 2 bass players, 4 singers (maybe you're right, but we are louder) was still quite unusual those days. To describe their sound; it may be best explained with fast grinding trash parts and chaos covering a distant, distorted melody in the background. So far, they've played shows in Germany, Belgium, Holland, France, toured the USA in 1999, and Spain in 2001.
Their second long player "10.000 Bad Guys Dead" released in 1999 by CHROME St. Magnus was described as "Their music insane and hard to categorize, but they encompass every genre related to metal. In one word: brutal. Death metal and hardcore are especially visible, and their intensity cannot be matched." or, "They play heavy as fuck metalcore with tons of power blasts and grind parts."
Not to be forgotten the split 7inch with Canadian mosh-rockers The Swarm and the cd-compilation "The Seed of the next season." Both released in between the first and the second full-length! And also the loss of their forth singer Ulf who had to move cause he became a famous gogo-dancer in the US.
Next step in their history was the work and recordings for the soundtrack of the comic "DER KOSMOPOLIT - SCUM" in 2002. Sascha Thau the comics author asked MÖRSER about their opinion of this crossover never seen before. They were excited about this idea and created songs which are some how different to the material before. The song structure grew in complexity and length and showed the next ways MÖRSERs sound is about to go. This way is from now on accompanied by a new face in MÖRSERs line-up. Dennis took the part of the second guitar and MÖRSER was once more a band with 8 members.
For some time now they have been working on the second soundtrack of the comic book "DER KOSMOPOLIT - PURE." During this time they had to take the fact that Björn left the band because of time-management between job and private life. From now on MÖRSER was once more on the run with 7 members. For releasing this soundtrack MÖRSER started the work with GARDEN OF EXILE RECORDS. The result was the 2006 release "PURE SCUM"
For the future (2009) the third long player will be the main topic they are now looking forward to. That release will see the light of day through GARDEN OF EXILE as well. And of course MÖRSER is trying to play some shows and present the new and old stuff to the audience.
