Lovelorn Dolls is the musical expression of the duo Ladyhell (vocals, Arrangements, Words) and Corpus Christi (Music, Programming, Guitars, Production), creators of a romantic but dark universe.
They are proposing a musical atmosphere mixing alternative, electro and rock. They are combining the visual of Tim Burton, the glam of The Birthday Massacre or Marilyn Manson, with the music inspirations of Lacuna Coil, Evanescence, and Garbage. The childhood drawn in fantasy world.
2010’s An Intense Feeling Of Affection EP is the first result of the duet only just after six months from its own birth. You can hear the first compositions accompanied by powerful drum machines and fronted by Ladyhell’s versatile voice, close to Bjork, Anneke Van Giersbergen and Cristina Scabbia. You can also discover the artwork of the talented graphist Gogo Melone for the cover.
Lovelorn Dolls continue to charm webzines (Ravenheart, Sonic Cathedral, Ladies in Rock, Musas Del Metal, …) and the German magazine Dark Feather with interviews, and a presence on the sampler of their magazine.
Early in 2011, they record their first full-length album, The House Of Wonders, and meet the producer Victor Love (Omega Lithium, Dope Stars Inc.). Victor perfectly fits the atmosphere of Lovelorn and helped to nurture the sound that the band needed to go further. The House Of Wonders was released in September 2012.
The bands global fanbase, the "Lovelorners", has and continues to embrace both younger fans of goth/emo/punk/visual and more "mature" listeners of industrial/rock/alternative metal.
They also have been featured on many compilations including "World Of Glass 1" and "Des Filles et Des Riffs 2".
Ladyhell is a also a member of the Eve’s Apple Community, a worldwide community of professional female singers, designed to be a platform that informs about women's work in the world of music, supports new female fronted bands, and offers advice for navigating the music business world.
