Biography

Bremen, Germany (1988 – 1996)

Maeror Tri was a group from Bremen, Germany, founded in April 1988 by Stefan Knappe, Martin Gitschel and Helge Siehl. The group only used electric guitars and tons of processing devices to create their droning soundscapes, borrowing elements from , and to create a new form of meditative and transcendental music. Their early works as Screaming Corpses, however, resemble and music very much.

“Maeror Tri” is probably an incorrect Latin expression that may be translated as “The Mourning Three” or “The Grieving Three”. Very little is known about their origins, even the identity of the band’s members remained vague for a long time, except for Stefan Knappe, the group’s spokesperson and also owner of the label Drone Records.

Their first cassette, “Dedicated to a New Dawn”, was self-released on their own Baracken Records in 1988, soon followed by many more cassette works on labels like ZNS, Tonspur and Audiofile, and a lot of compilations appearances. Because of the consistent quality and originality of their music and the uniqueness of the special packages it came with, the group built a very strong reputation in a relatively short period of time.
In 1993 Korm Plastics released the very first “overground” Maeror Tri album “Multiple Personality Disorder” a concept CD divided in four long parts recorded back in 1991 that fully showcase their mastery in distorting and layering guitar sounds. It was soon followed by “Meditamentum”, a collection of selected tape tracks recorded from 1988 to 1993.

    Yeah, stupid comparisons. Troum is not a thing apart from MT, it's a logical sequel in another shell...

    Come on people, i like Maeror very much but stop that >< thingy that is so annoying. Have you listened to AIWS? It is Troum at their best. For me they should not be compared and i am fond of both projects.

    TeatroAssente > Probably you are right, their music is an example what soul can make if you choose to search within (without having games and experiments with your suffering ego). I don't know how these guys managed to combine this concept and put it into drone experiments all those years, I think it's quite difficult because unlike other dark ambient projects they made not just drone/dark ambient music about something or just feelings in a special concept, special way, but they had to think over the things their music is about, unite ideas taken from within and reproduce everything in a complicated yet beautiful sound. I still regret they split although every member still continues making brilliant drone music. Troum has a concept of "Traum" (a theme as a part of whole Maeror Tri phylosophy), and 1000schoen, which seems to dissociate from the past, shows you another state of mind.
