BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE / Beileid [2011]

The German doom-jazz quartet Bohren & der Club Of Gore's latest album Beileid once again ventures into a murky, depressing world reminiscent of a rainy noir-ish cityscape created by David Lynch.
After 4 years of hiding, you'd think Bohren would have come up with a longer album, however this not the case. Clocking in at only 35 minutes and featuring only 3 tracks, Beileid is just a little too short to really get into the mood they set out to make. The second track, a cover of Warlock's Catch My Heart, features guest vocalist Mike Patton and for some reason just doesn't work.
With only 2 tracks worth seeking out, Beileid is a no-brainer for hardcore fans but if you're just dipping into Bohren I'd seek out Sunset Mission or Black Earth.
