Biography

Toulouse, France (2001 – present)

Soror Dolorosa is a gothic rock / post-punk band formed in 2001. The group was founded in Toulouse, France with Andy Julia (Peste Noire, Darvulia, Nuit Noire, ex-Mütiilation, ex-Celestia, Fornication) on drums, Franck (ex-Funeraell) on guitar, Herve (ex-Funeraell) on bass, and Christophe Guenot (ex-Funeraell) on vocals.

The band recorded an unpublished demo, then the line-up changed in 2003 with the arrival of Emey (ex-Contrast, Unscarred), who replaced Franck on guitar. Subsequently they recorded a second unpublished demo and did some gigs until they split in 2005.

In August 2007 they reformed with the present line up. A month later, based on songs written by bassist Carles Herve, the band recorded a third unpublished demo whose content sounds definitely gothic rock and deathrock, influenced by groups such as Christian Death, Bauhaus, and The Sisters of Mercy.

From that time, Soror Dolorosa’s style became more personal and they found an own identity as a band. The songs were now written by the four members together, though still mostly based on the bass guitar. They took on a Cold Wave colouring, more in line with bands such as The Cure or Human League, but also with hints of 70’s rock like Deep Purple or Black Sabbath and retaining the Sisters of Mercy-like Gothic Rock influence.

Soror Dolorosa made their first record appearance with “American Chronicle” in March 2008, on the free compilation “Poisoned Dead Frogs” (Manic Depression): http://www.manicdepressionrecords.com/frogs.php
