Schwarzer Sabbat Für Dean Martin

Band: Bohren & Der Club Of Gore/Wald
Album: Schwarzer Sabbat Für Dean Martin (Split EP)
Origin: Germany (Mülheim an der Ruhr)
Genre: Jazz Noir, Noise, Metal, Experimental
Year: 1995

My exams are almost over after which I promise to post more often. In the meanwhile some more Bohren & Der Club Of Gore. This is a split EP with Wald. I can't find much information on that artist except that it is a certain Mark Sikora who is a german videoclip director (Midnight Black Earth and Prowler For Bohren) and graphic designer (covers for Napalm death). He has six short tracks ranging from noisy metal outbursts to mesmerizing droning guitar loops. Bohren has only one track (as long as all of Wald's tracks combined), which sounds very different from their later output (mind you, this was only their second release as far as I know). It has more of a metal sound than a jazz vibe to it and it reminds me of Ennio Morricone or latter day Earth mixed with some doom. They seem to have had that very deep bass sound from their beginning though (I just love the contrabass). Enjoy!
