We're glad to introduce another Blade Records / Afe Records co-production coming in a very special package designed by the Afe Creative Laboratories.

Legendary german band Maeror Tri would need no introduction: they are widely known as real masters of guitar-based droning soundscapes.

Their music borrowed elements from Industrial, Avangarde, Minimalism and New Age meditation to reach a new form of transcendentalism.

"Peak Experience" is one of their earliest tapes, the very first that was widely available to the public. It was released in 1989 in two versions: the first was published by the american cassette label Harsh Reality Music, the second appearead later on the germal label Bestattungsinstitut.

The first version had two tracks ("Small Faces" and "Growing Rotation") which were replaced by two never tracks ("Cursed Colours" and "Endless Space") on the second version. This CD-R re-release is a fully remastered version of the german edition.

All material was originally recorded in 1988/1989 on an analogue 4-tracks recorder. Tracks 1 to 5 (the "A" side of the original cassette) showcase the harsher and raw industrial roots of the band, while tracks 6 to 11 (the "B" side of the original cassette) point towards more dark ambient areas.

The track "Boundary to Insanity" was a live improvised harsh noise opera that existed in different versions. This re-release of "Peak Experience" contains the relatively short fifth version.
