BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE - Black Earth (reissue) (PIAS)
BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE - Black Earth (reissue) (PIAS) Bohren & Der Club Of Gore has always been a unique proposition. Initially formed in 1992 by members of numerous grindcore, hardcore and death metal bands, they quickly became famous for creating their own dark, atmospheric and ambient influenced style of "doom-ridden jazz music". They've released umpteen albums since then, with Black Earth - a 2002 exploration of ambient jazz pastures full of horizontal intent - being amongst their most celebrated. Here it gets the reissue treatment, allowing a new generation to wallow in its fine combination of bleak track titles, foreboding chords, hushed percussion and gentle jazz motifs.
