about

The first NEW Dofka track in three years, "Pain and Sorrow" features the vocal talents of Matt Bizilia (Icarus Witch, Habitual Sin). The classic riff based song structure and soaring vocals are meant to pay homage to the great melodic metal of the early 80's, like Accept and Loudness.

The B-side is "Johnny's Back", a tribute to another 80's metal band, RIOT. Former Dofka singer Chet Miller contributed his talents to this raging thrash track, and Icarus Witch guitarist Quinn Lucas joined in on the fun, adding his ripping guitar sound to the track! The track was originally released as a tribute to Riot guitarist Mark Reale, who passed away in January of 2012.

SHES WAITING IN THE DARK, TO LURE YOU INTO… A HIDDEN WORLD OF SUFFERING
BEWARE THE EVIL EYE.. CAUSE SHES LOOKIN FOR YOU

YOU’LL BE CURSED FOREVER.. WITH PAIN AND SORROW
IF THAT’S YOUR DESTINY.. PAIN AND SORROW

SHE’LL TAKE YOU BY THE HAND.. AND THAT’S WHEN SHE’LL BURN YOU
SHE’LL BREAK YOU DOWN AND DAMN YOUR NAME
YOU HAD BEST BEWARE HER GAZE CAUSE WHEN SHE LOOKS UPON YOU
YOU CAN BET YOUR SOUL YOU’LL TURN TO STONE

YOU CAN LEAVE IT UP TO CHANCE, OR YOU CAN JOIN US IN THE DANCE

WHEN YOUR CURSED FOREVER.. WITH PAIN AND SORROW
IF THATS YOUR DESTNY.. PAIN AND SORROW
WHEN YOUR CURSED FOREVR.. WITH PAIN AND SORROW.
IT’S BEEN BESTOWED ON ME.. PAIN AND SORROW

OH SAVE MY SOUL TONITE YEA.. CAUSE SHES COMMIN ALIVE

WHEN YOUR CURSED FOREVER.. WITH PAIN AND SORROW
IF THATS YOUR DESTNY.. PAIN AND SORROW
WHEN YOUR CURSED FOREVR.. WITH PAIN AND SORROW.
