Dolorian : When All the Laughter Has Gone




Innovation seems to be the trademark of Finnish doom metal bands. Bands like Unholy, Skepticism and Dolorian created new substyles within doom metal on their own. Dolorian shapes with a very characteristic, full of echo effects guitar sound, icecold, desolate landscapes of frozen emotions.

As the title of this album suggests, listening to Dolorian makes both corners of your mouth drop towards the ground. There is not a second of sunshine, not a second of hope. A lot of "clean" guitars full of "unclean" effects, desperate screams, dark keyboard work, repetitive song structures and a psychotic atmosphere... this is what Dolorian offers in their debut album.

The words of their label sum up pretty well where Dolorian stands for: "If you like power metal, don't buy this." It's difficult to find out what are the main influences of the band, but one thing is certain: their dark blackdoom is very original.
