Biography

Dolor means pain.....simple as that...
...however the motivation and influence of this bandgoes much further than that. With songs that touch on topics that range from everyday occurances to abstract streams of consciousness , they take the listener on an audiblerollercoaster of emotions. It's because of this that Dolor has built a very strong following for themselves in their hometown area. Everyone can connect with something in their music.Dolor's sound can best be described as heavy melodic rock drawing from influences such as Alice in Chains , Pantera and Sevendust to name a few. Within one song the band can conjure a wide dynamic range bringing the listener from a gentle lull to an agressive flashpoint of anger....truely music for today's life. The band's roots trace back to the summer of 2000 when Duffy ( guitar ) and Scavelli ( drums ) first met Hamel ( vocals , bass ). Shortly after the first jam session the three knew they were on to something. Despite thier progress they still felt they were missing something. Russ and Mike both worked at a local music store and one of thier co-workers ( Mihan ) happened to be an exceptional rock guitarist. At the time Todd was invloved in another project but filled in for a few shows with the group. It wouldn't be until about a year later when Todd joined up full time with Dolor.It was with this line up that the band finally felt solid. Dolor is currently arranging a string of shows , including a CD release party were they will drop thier full length disc. Stay tuned for more to come.....and remember it's not what you have...it's what you have to give.

Lyrics

Over Now

Written By: Dolor

Growing up, never had much to give
Throwing up the excuses you fed to me, I'm failing, derailing myself
I'm giving
So many times, your lies cut thru my heart
So I just go back to the start again my friend, see...
These things they change, they stay the same, it's so routine to me
I'm giving up - I'm giving
All the times you turned away - Avert my gaze again
You say it's all okay
It's all over now, you know it's all over now All the times you turned away - Avert my gaze again
You say it's all okay
Was it something I said, can you help me forget the pain
Cause I'm turning my head and I know what you said 'bout me
It's all over now, you know it's all over now

Only Living Witness

Written By: Dolor

So, you're gonna take it all away from me - Well it's not that easy
You think you got it all planned out right there on paper in pen
You better think again
So I say it's not what you have - it's what you have to give
Lie like a dog and tell me what I want to hear
Push away the absolute logic only to witness your own mind disappear
Now, you think you can just turn your back and walk away from me
It's not that easy
You say you want it, need it, can't live without plugging it into your bloodstream
Something, one thing takes you away from me
So I say it's not what you have - it's what you have to give
Lie like a dog and tell me what I want to hear
Push away the absolute logic only to witness your own mind disappear

A Warm Place

Written By: Dolor

Heavy rain touches my head again
Still the same, can't back down again
But when you look in my eyes, tell me what kind of person you see
When they're my lies, then how can I be deceived?
I've been spending my whole life looking for a warm place
I've been hiding all the strife to keep it away from my face
When I fall into the sea will you still remember me after I fade away?
Open mind can't stretch much further now.
Caps and stems/Us and them, can someone tell me how
We let it get to this, we let it fade
When I know I'm feeling something, I choose to break away
I've been spending my whole life looking for a warm place
I've been hiding all the strife to keep it away from my face
When I fall into the sea will you still remember me after I fade away?
