'''Bohren & Der Club of Gore''' is a German {{Ambient}}/{{Jazz}} band from [[UsefulNotes/TheSixteenLandsOfDeutschland Nordrhein-Westfalen]]. Started in 1992 by Thorsten Benning, Morten Gass, Robin Rodenberg and Reiner Henseleit, the music was described by the band as an "unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Music/BlackSabbath doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds."

In practice, Bohren's music is dark, brooding, and often difficult to follow. They swing back and forth between "ambient" and "jazz," creating a musical sound that can be difficult to describe.

!!Bohren und der Club of Gore provides examples of the following tropes:
* CoversAlwaysLie: The name, combined with the bizarre choice of covers, would lead you to believe this is a black metal band.
* EpicRocking: Most of their songs.
* FilmNoir: Their primary aesthetic influence. ''Black Earth'' and ''Sunset Mission'' in particular sound like the background music for a PrivateEyeMonologue.
* {{Instrumental}}: All of their songs.
* GenreBusting: Dark jazz, slowcore, drone, and just a hint of black metal.
* ShoutOut: The album art to ''Gore Motel'' is a still from ''Film/WayOfTheDragon''.
* {{Slowcore}}: Probably one of the weirder examples.
