Bohren & Der Club of Gore are a band founded in 1986 in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany by Thorsten Benning, Morten Gass, Robin Rodenberg und Reiner Henseleit. Originally a heavy metal band, in 1992 they produced a crossover of jazz, heavy metal and ambient, which they self described as an unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds. Henseleit left the band in 1996 and was replaced by Christoph Clöser. German Bohren und der Club of Gore continue in the same vein as on their first two albums in producing pieces of mellow bliss. If you are not at all familiar with this band, then please refer to the two reviews below, which talk about Bohren's first two albums from 1994 and 95, respectively.
On Sunset Mission, Bohren goes for its most loungey sound with the inclusion of a saxophone. This last instrument, coupled with the use of a piano, yields an album that is less austere than the previous album, but is exquisite.If Midnight Radio kind of reminds you of being the alternate soundtrack to "Twin Peaks", then Sunset Mission is without a doubt one of the CDs the Dugbusses permanently have in their CD changer in the Black Lodge.As with their other efforts, Sunset Mission stands as a singular piece of work, rather than a collection of songs. However, I find myself very much drawn to track 5, with its washes of drawn-out, ambient notes that blanket the guitar and drum parts. Like with all their albums, Bohren und der Club of Gore maximize the space afforded on the compact disk, giving you a recording that lasts 74 minutes. Sunset Mission is a sublime mix of mellow darkness and smoky sensuality, and is one of those rare records that will appeal to people whether or not they are fans of the kind of stuff covered in this zine.
