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:
- Covers Always Lie: The name, combined with the bizarre choice of covers, would lead you to believe this is a black metal band.
- Epic Rocking: Most of their songs.
- Film Noir: Their primary aesthetic influence. Black Earth and Sunset Mission in particular sound like the background music for a Private Eye Monologue.
- Instrumental: All of their songs.
- Genre-Busting: Dark jazz, slowcore, drone, and just a hint of black metal.
- Shout-Out: The album art to Gore Motel is a still from Way of the Dragon.
- Slowcore: Probably one of the weirder examples.
