Bohren members Thorsten Benning (drums), Robin Rodenberg (Bass), Reiner Henseleit (guitar), Morten Gass (guitar/piano) started playing music together in 1988. Driven by the idea of a more unique style of music, they formed Bohren, german word for “drilling”. They called their music “doom ridden jazz music”, a mixture of jazz, ambient and downtempo with a strong feeling of noir atmosphere. In 1993 the band released a 7” ep for Suggestion Records, also the band expand their name to Bohren & der Club of Gore, as a link to the dutch instrumental band, which inspired them to play instrumental music.

1994 followed the longplayers GORE MOTEL and the double set MIDNIGHT RADIO (1995), both on Epistrophy Records, where Bohren introduces its musical vision between slow jazz ballads and doom guitars. 1996 Reiner Henseleit left the band and the guitar disappeared out of the BOHREN Music.
1997 Christoph Clöser, a cologned-based composer and musician (saxophone, piano) joined the band and in the cast T. Benning (drums), C. Clöser (saxophone), M. Gass (Fender Rhodes), R. Rodenberg (bass), which still exist till today, the band released SUNSET MISSION (2000), a “slow but nonetheless melodious blend of Saxophone, Fender Rhodes, Bass and Drums” on the Hamburg-based label WONDER. 2002 BOHREN released BLACK EARTH where the band tried to expand the possibilities of new avenues explored in SUNSET MISSION, followed by the subsequent conceptual CD GEISTERFAUST (2005). GEISTERFAUST carries the principles of reduction and compression to extremes and at the same time it is a bandexperiment in new “tone colours” (Tuba, Bass-Trombone, Vibraphone, choir). Both CD`s are released on WONDER.

In autumn 2008 the new BOHREN CD DOLORES appears on the belgian label PIAS. “With DOLORES BOHREN`s habit of making music which often makes the listener fell like he or she is stuck in some dark room in which the oxygen is slowly and mercilessly being extracted has changed. When listening to DOLORES, listeners are sure to get feeling that - after all these years - the shutters are being raised, the windows thrown open, fresh air and sunlight are flooding into the room. Quite by chance, the most natural thing in the world, cool, crisp and brazen.”
