Founded in 1992 in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany. Bohren & Der Club Of Gore was formed by members of various grindcore/hardcore and death/doom metal bands. In their search for a “unique sound”, they started to play what they call “doom ridden jazz music“.
Initially the band was called “Bohren”. In 1993, the name was expanded to “Bohren & Der Club of Gore” as a link to the Dutch band Gore, which inspired Bohren to play instrumental music.
