Biography

Germany (1988 – 1996)

Maeror Tri was a band from Germany, founded in April 1988 by Stefan Knappe, Martin Gitschel and Helge Siehl. The group consisted of three members who only used electric guitars and tons of processing devices to create their droning soundscapes. Their music borrowed elements from , and meditation to reach a new form of transcendentalism. Their early works as Screaming Corpses, however, resemble and industrial music very much.

Very little is known about their origins, even the identity of the band’s members remains vague, except for Stefan Knappe, the group’s spokesperson and also owner of the label Drone Records.

The name they chose is probably an incorrect Latin expression that may be better translated as “The Mourning Three” or “The Grieving Three”.

“Dedicated To A New Dawn”, their first cassette, 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.

    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.

    yeah, thanks for serious comment void. But actually, Maeror Tri's music seeks to find a salvation in sadness. More accurately, we can say in the motion of sadness. (Regular people seeks salvation in knowledge or in the motion of happiness.) You can hear that in the last part of Desiderium clearly. At the last part of the song, there is a very highly treble sound which strikes against(slowly and painful) droning sadness of song. Tries to escape, tries to find another reality. This is the sound of desire for salvation. You can hear that in 'Immersion in Emotion, Maestus. Almost in every drone sounds of Maeror Tri, there is always one striking struggling (but failing) treble sound like that. These sounds go so forward compared to other droning sound that we can understand the musician tries to escape surrounding reality. I think that we should accomplish that finding salvation, where they failed. Maybe they just wanted to say within their songs: Dont do what we did, try another way.
