Soror Dolorosa - Mond

  • Description


Creatures of the night probably miss the 80s of the last century badly. Post-punk and New Wave reached glorious heights and their epic explorations of mixing hard guitars and driving electronics dominated alternative dance floors. Names like SISTERS OF MERCY, FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM, DEPECHE MODE, JOY DIVISION, THE HUMAN LEAGUE, ULTRAVOX and others still have a magic ring to them. Luckily, all that subtle eroticism, the electric excitement, and dark musical pleasure is not gone for good: SOROR DOLOROSA come flying to the rescue on black wings. Their fourth album "Mond" (German for "Moon") has musical fangs that draw delicious sonic blood on the first listening experience. The classic dark post-punk and wave elements are all there, and so is the overwhelming enticement to let your feet move in an ecstatic dance under the eponymous moon. Yet SOROR DOLOROSA are no peddlers of stale snake oil nostalgia. The French band has updated the classic feel with a massive sound fitting for the new millennium. Mix and mastering of "Mond" have been successfully entrusted to PERTURBATOR mastermind James Kent, who has polished this epic album with a lush vibrant power and ethereal coldness. Lyrically, SOROR DOLOROSA remain firmly on the path they have wandered from the start, when the band was originally founded in Toulouse in 2001 and finally emerged with the "Severance" EP in 2009. Their inspiration has again come in part from poets and writers such as William Blake and Edgar Alan Poe. The romantic and cathartic emotional landscapes are still at the heart of the band. With "Mond", SOROR DOLOROSA are reaching far out of the solar sphere and into deep outer space where the musical past and future become entwined to create an exciting new chapter in the band's evolution.
