Essential reissue of the first two kult classic albums from this seminalinstrumental Dutch band. Thee mighty GORE ruled from the late eighties into the mid-nineties. Relentless, heavy, pounding instrumental ROCK, whose influence has paved the way for other heavy instrumental acts like Pelican, Russian Circles, Don Caballero, and of course the band who adopted their name: Bohren und Der Club of Gore. With their use of repetitive heavy rolling rhythms and bombastic execution (sans vocals) Gore pioneered a new style of music for the time. Gore’s sound is a monolithic one, uncompromising and seemingly singular in its vision. Although the music is exclusively instrumental the first two albums all contain lyric sheets – ostensibly meant to add a “horrorshow” element to the music and make it all the more ominous and hardcore. One can certainly hear elements of Gore’s aesthetic in other like-minded outfits from the 90s' like Melvins, Helmet, the Jesus Lizard, and Godflesh.
