BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE 'Geisterfaust'
Regular price €31,00
In recent months, PIAS has re-released numerous albums from BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE, a cult post-hardcore band that found fame by developing their own distinctive brand of "doom-ridden jazz music". The latest album to get the reissue treatment is 2005's 'Geisterfaust'. It originally appeared three years after 'Black Earth', a macabre and unsettling full-length that remains their most celebrated work. The five epic tracks that make up 'Geisterfaust' are a little lighter in tone, though still thoroughly absorbing and cloaked in the band's usual hazy atmospheres. At times the music tends towards the melancholic, with 20-minute opener "Zeigefinger" offering a near perfect blend of slowly evolving ambient jazz motifs and foreboding drum hits.
