About Bohren & Der Club of Gore

Formed in 1992 by longtime friends Thorsten Benning, Robin Rodenberg, Reiner Henseleit, and Morten Gass, self-described German all-instrumental "doom-ridden jazz music" quartet Bohren & der Club of Gore was forged from a shared love of grindcore, hardcore, death, and doom metal. Originally simply called simply (German for drilling), the band expanded its moniker in 1993 to reflect one of its biggest inspirations, the Dutch instrumental band GORE. The group issued their full-length debut, Gore Motel, in 1994. Henseleit left in 1996, and composer and saxophone player Christoph Clöser joined in 1997, resulting in 2000's Fender Rhodes-heavy Sunset Mission. Subsequent albums included Black Earth (2002), Geisterfaust (2005), Dolores (2008), Mitleid Lady (2010), and Beileid (2011). ~ James Christopher Monger
