First introduced in 2015 as Boys Of Terror a significant change, aurally, is heard by Kalle Mossberg, the bassist, now being full-time with the new iteration of Dolorifics, rather than being purely the live performance bassist, which enables them to create a more rounded sound to the material with every player now being an integral part of the developmental progress of a song.
From their latest EP Excessive Self-Pity (which is available on bandcamp) the third of the four tracks – Goodbye – which evidences the stronger bond betwixt each element.

Boys Of Terror
Melodies emerge predominately from the thinnest guitar strings, as Boys Of Terror produce their summery sounds which reach into the tweeters. As a regular reader you will know I have an almost obsessional interest in bass notes, so it is a pleasure to find a band who play at the opposite end of the spectrum I can recommend you spend time to consider.
The lightness of the tones, does not find the music feeling as though it lacks depth as Boys Of Terror are able to add glistening echo, which gives the effect of light diffracting through a crystal, with angles of notes that wrap themselves around the ears in fragile shimmers of sound.
Formed originally in 2013, Boys Of Terror have had a variety of line-ups, which led to the delay in their follow up of a Demo EP from June 2013 – the LP What Everybody Feels not appearing until the beginning of the month. A summer Scandinavian and UK tour in support, should see them gathering a deserved wider audience.
