Beileid by Bohren & Der Club of Gore (2011)

Kind of Like: Earth, The Kiliminjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Heroin and Your Veins
Genres: Jazz, Doom, Drone, Ambient
Preview: Myspace

Ready for something pretty different?  How about a fusion of doom and jazz to put you in a state of catharsis?  Three songs, one is 7 minutes the next 13 and the last is 14.  These guys are from Germany, as you may have guessed.This album is a trip, enjoy the ride.

"They play a crossover of jazz and ambient, which they self described as an “unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds”. Over the years they have continously reduced and compressed their music to extremes. Originally, the members of Bohren, who were school friends, started out playing in various hardcore bands such as 7 Inch Boots and Chronical Diarrhoea in 1988. Driven by the idea of a more unique style of music, they formed Bohren (German word for drilling) in 1992 to play, as they called it, “doom ridden jazz music”.  "
