The band themselves describe their music as leaving the listener "spiritually cramped". Both drummer Ari Kukkohovi and vocalist Antti Ittna Haapapuro have credits with Black Metal act BLACK SWAN. Haapapuro also has affiliations with Dark Ambient project HALO MANASH, AEOGA and I. CORAX. DOLORIAN"s first recordings came in the form of a 1997 demo, these tracks embellished by keyboards from CATAMENIA's Heidi Riihinen. Subsequently keyboards were handled by Jussi Ontero of WILDCARD and GHOST MACHINERY.
