The German-based guitar trio Maeror Tri was active between 1988 and 1996. Well known in the industrial cassette underground, the group was about to break into the growing experimental electronica scene when it ceased its activities. Its brand of drone music borrowed elements from industrial, gothic, avant-garde minimalism (Tony Conrad, Glenn Branca), and new age meditation to reach a form of transcendentalism. It has released dozens of full-length cassettes and 7" and 10" EPs in very limited, hard to find editions, along with five studio albums that are more widely available. Archive material has continued to surface a few years after the group's dissolution. Maeror Tri formed in April 1988. Very little is known about its origins; even the identity of its members remains vague, except for Stefan Knappe, the group's spokesperson and owner of the label Drone Records. The name is an incorrect Latin expression that could mean "the absorbed three" or "the grieving three" -- suitable for the trio's dark inner journeys. The group released its first cassette privately in 1988, followed by many more and dozens of appearances on drone and noise compilation tapes. The group was building a strong name because of the consistent quality and originality of its hazy music and the uniqueness of its packages. In 1993 Korm Plastics released the first "overground" Maeror Tri album, the ambitious concept CD Multiple Personality Disorder. It was followed by Meditamentum, a collection of tape tracks from 1988 to 1993. Myein (1995) and Language of Flames and Sound .

Reissue of a cassette originally released in 1991 by Tonspur Tapes label, containing recordings made in 1990-1991. Deep low-end drones and plangent noises, reverbed clanging of metal and other experimental textures, minimum of melodies and guitar-based melancholia, typical rather for later period of the band. Complete and relentless immersion into the subliminal sphere. "Like a waterfall in your mind" reads a pithy text on the back of this reissue from the German industrial-drone iconoclasts Maeror Tri. It's very much a fitting descriptor to the sprawling, long-form bass-rumble that those three had developed as their signature sound during their prolific career from 1988 to 1996. Hypnotic, transfixing, ominous, sublime. Subliminal Forces was one of the many cassettes that had been released in a tiny edition at sometime during their career. The sub-underground imprint Tonspur put out the original cassette, doing so in 1993, which was a couple years after the recordings were completed. Suspended tones of flanging guitar noise and flecked electronics hang above inky black, gothic, shadowy, sepulchral, subterranean, and otherwise dark-as-fuck tones, lending to an post-apocalyptic imagery of flickering strands of Christmas lightbulbs that somehow managed to stay illumined while the remaining landscape is charred, bombed-out, deserted, and strewn only with rubble. After seven tracks of expressively desolate slabs of industrial drone, album's isolationist tendencies crack only slightly with the final track "Memento." Here, pools of synths and guitars ripple against each other's languid reverberations and spectral decay. Very lovely. Reports from the peanut gallery about the original tape's inconsistent sound seem to have addressed with the remastering of this album for the 2014 relaunch. As such, it's a necessary reissue on all fronts.

From 1988 to 1996, MAEROR TRI were a German trio that used only electric guitars and tons of processing devices to create their floating and static droning soundscapes. The group is now disbanded. Knappe and Gitschel formed Troum, Siehl is currently working as Tausendschoen.
