From Nuclear Blast:

Forever Warriors, Forever United – 100 days to go until the release of DORO‘s highly anticipated new studio album. 100 days of waiting until the metal queen unleashes 25 (!) brand new songs, her first double album ever, upon the music world. But Forever Warriors, Forever United isn’t simply just a double album – it’s two new DORO records as one, which will be released as premium 2CD set and vinyl formats on August 17th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast.

On Forever Warriors, DORO channels her inner wild warrior, with tracks like ‘Bastardos’ or the first single ‘All For Metal’ (release: June 8th) affirming this. Her duet with Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg ‘If I Can’t Have You…’ is sure to bring any metal head to their knees. This is DORO like you’ve never heard her before!

DORO PESCH, The Voice Of WARLOCK, Celebrates 30th Anniversary Of Legendary “Triumph And Agony” Full-Length; Special US Tour Dates Featuring Guitarist Tommy Bolan Announced

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Released in 1987, Triumph And Agony is the fourth studio album from German Heavy Metal titans WARLOCK. The record was a mammoth success globally with hit singles and MTV’s Headbangers Ball favorites All We Are and Für immer among other now-pinnacle anthems like East Meets West, Metal Tango, Rule The Ruins, and Touch Of Evil. Triumph And Agony stands among Heavy Metal’s true cult classics.

Gushed Decibel Magazine of the zenith offering, “Triumph And Agony contains one glorious anthem after another for the duration of its (too short) forty-minute run time. ‘All We Are’ is the big fist-pumper, their ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ or ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’.’ ‘Three Minute Warning’ absolutely scorches, something Accept would have been proud to write. ‘I Rule The Ruins’ lays waste to everything and THEN rules it. ‘Kiss Of Death’ provides the requisite tragic vampire soliloquy, and ‘Make Time For Love’ provides the requisite drama ballad. ‘East Meets West’ taps some serious spine with its love letter to the Land Of The Rising Sun, while ‘Metal Tango’ may be the only, well, metal tango. And then there’s ‘Touch Of Evil,’ which ends with one of the most astonishing vulgar displays of screeching ever recorded.”

And three decades later, the record has lost none of its charm. In honor of its 30th anniversary, this September, WARLOCK vocalist Doro Pesch will, for the first time ever, perform the fist-raising full-length in its entirety on two European festival dates this Summer and a special run of US live performances. Joined by original Triumph And Agony guitarist Tommy Bolan alongside bassist Nick Douglas, drummer Johnny Dee, guitarist Bas Maas and guitarist/keyboardist Luca Princiotta, Pesch will hit Worcester, New York City, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

“Triumph And Agony was our breakthrough album in America,” issues Pesch, “and it’s still one of my absolute favorites! I’m so excited to play some of these songs for the first time and I’m so much looking forward to play with Tommy again. I’m sure it’s gonna sound great and we’ll put on a killer show.”

Doro Pesch, The Voice Of WARLOCK:

6/08/2017 Sweden Rock – Norje, SE

7/07/2017 Norway Rock Live – Kvinesdal, NO

9/08/2017 Palladium – Worcester, MA [tickets]

DORO “All We Are: The Fight” EP Is – Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, rock music with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Doro - All We Are - The Fight EP - promo album cover pic - #2007DP

DORO All We Are: The Fight EP was released back on May 25th, 2007, via AFM Records. This tidy EP of five songs are Heavy Metal bliss to my ears and Doro Pesch is (as always) alluring on vocals. I was in the Metal mood today for DORO and this EP I listened to multiple times to satisfy my Metal spirit. I purchased this DORO EP on iTunes a few years ago and would love to eventually get my hands on the physical CD as well. You just cannot take the old school out of me, praise the Metal Gods for that.

I’m not certain if this EP was ever released on vinyl; if so, I would want the vinyl version! Whoa. The re-recording of DORO’s Heavy Metal anthem All We Are is the opener and never ceases to give me those always welcomed Metal chills. Oh, sweet molasses, yeah. All We Are was originally released on the 1987 Warlock studio album: Triumph And Agony. That said album was the fourth and final release from the great Warlock.

Doro - Publicity Photo - 2012 - #1!

Thunderspell is an outright jewel of a song; it is a Heavy Metal accomplishment in my Metal opinion and Doro Pesch is untouchable singing it. Her band is nothing short of excellent (of course) on this EP, musically lifting the powerful vocals of Doro Pesch into the Heavy Metal stratosphere! The one ballad on this EP is Everything’s Lost and it’s moving and emotionally driven, courtesy of Doro’s vocals, inspirational guitar solo and intermittent piano notes.

On My Own is a duet featuring Doro Pesch and the great Marc Storace of KROKUS fame. Call it a power ballad that Rocks my face off. ‘Nuff said. The one cover song is Babe I’m Gonna Leave You, originally recorded as a Folk song by Anne Bredon in the late 1950’s.The legendary Joan Baez later covered this song in 1963 and the iconic Led Zeppelin turned it into a classic on their 1969 debut and self-titled album. Doro Pesch makes this song her own, please excuse the cliché. Seriously, I love the way Doro Pesch approached this Rock classic, nothing is watered down and the emotion of the song remains exactly intact. Yes, it Rocks.

This EP has (the near hidden) subtitle: A Tribute to Regina Halmich. The version of the re-recorded title track All We Are was originally performed March 30th, 2006 on television in Germany, as the pump-you-up entrance song for Doro’s close friend, German boxing champion Regina Halmich. Great stuff and Metal be thy name. – Stone

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, wine, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on December 12, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Doro Pesch - Doro Wine - Promo Pic - 2013

Legendary Metal maven, DORO PESCH, has joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Motörhead, and Slayer in the bottled liquid category and proudly presents two very special rock ‘n’ roll drinks: DORO Hero Cava Brut Reserva Champagne and Herzblut [Lifeblood] Vino Tinto Red Wine.

“It was my wish for my 30-year stage anniversary – which I will be celebrating on May 2nd and 3rd, 2014 in my hometown of Düsseldorf [Germany] – to present unique drinks to the fans that represent my own taste and quality standard,” comments DORO.  “We went to a great old wine region in Spain to pick the right product for me and I discovered a very fine red wine there.”

View Metal & Wine’s eight-minute “making-of” video of these two very special and commemorative drinks at THIS LOCATION.

“Hero” is a track off of DORO’s 2012 album, Raise Your Fist, which was dedicated to one of the all-time greatest vocalists in rock and metal, Ronnie James Dio. “Herzblut [Lifeblood]” was released as a single in 2009. The Herzblut EP contains German, French, Spanish, and Portuguese versions of the song.

DORO’s 30 Years Strong And Proud Tour launches next year. Her career in music spans three decades, sixteen studio albums, eleven EPs, countless tours, a worldwide fanbase, and even includes various movie roles. This year, she was the recipient of the Metal Hammer Award in Berlin and the Golden Gods Award in London – both in the “Legend” category.

The two-night live concert party in May 2014 celebrating DORO‘s multi-decade career already includes the participation of Blind Guardian, Mille Petrozza of Kreator, and Udo Dirkschneider of U.D.O./ex-Accept. “I have the most awesome friends and colleagues,” DORO shares with a wide smile.

Raise Your Fist – which features musical guests Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead and Ozzy/Firewind guitarist Gus G. – debuted at #65 on the American Billboard Heatseekers chart in November of last year and can be purchased from the Nuclear Blast Webshop.

Doro - Winter Tour 2013 - promo flyer - 2013

When Rock legend DORO celebrates her big anniversaries, she will traditionally welcome several true heroes of the Rock and Metal scene. The SCORPIONS, MOTÖRHEAD or SAXON, all of them have been on stage with DORO in front of thousands of fans.

And this will also be the case for her 30-years stage anniversary. DORO will be playing two shows on May 02 and May 03, 2014 at CCD-Stadthalle, where her fans can look forward to seeing many superstars.

Hansi Kürsch of BLIND GUARDIAN has already confirmed his appearance. As of today it is also confirmed that Miland “Mille” Petrozza of KREATOR and Udo Dirkschneider, the former ACCEPT shouter, will come to Düsseldorf to celebrate DORO’s anniversary together with her.

Udo on this: “Of course! For DORO I will always be up front. Actually I was planning on being part of her show in Wacken this summer, but I could not make that date.” Thus there will be a return visit on May 02 and May 03, 2014 – as DORO has been sharing stages with Dirkschneider and his band U.D.O. at their stage anniversary in 2012.

DORO – METAL QUEEN RECEIVES METAL HAMMER “LEGEND“ AWARD!

Doro - promo banner - #50 - 2013

Friday the 13th, 2013 for sure was a day of good luck, unlike the notorious date. At 10:30 pm, at the celebratory ceremony of METAL HAMMER AWARDS in Berlin, 48-times Berlin World boxing champion Regina Halmich announces the winner of the category “Legend”. Her name: DORO Pesch!

Now the most important female Hard Rock and Heavy Metal singer is officially named a legend in her native Germany. Just three months earlier, DORO had been awarded at the “Golden Gods Awards“ at music mecca London.

“Unbelievable”, a shining DORO states. “The prophet does not count that much in his own country. Receiving this trophy in Germany and getting it handed over by my dear friend Regina Halmich is a big, big honor.”

DORO continues: “I am ever so happy, that also two of my absolute favorite bands METALLICA and MOTÖRHEAD were present at this wonderful event to witness this. With those guys I’ve been close friends for years.”

Doro - Publicity Photo - 2012 - #1!

Two “Legend“ Awards within just three months – the double-coronation for the blonde Rock-Queen and this in the year of her 30th stage anniversary.

Her fans can also take part in the celebration and enjoy the living legend live from October 12 onwards. At that time DORO will be embarking on her big 30 years Strong and Proud-Tour through Germany. Highlight: The double concert on May 2/3 2014 at her hometown Düsseldorf (CCD – Stadthalle).

DORO – It was back in 1983 that a then unheard-of 19-year-old vocalist called Dorothee Pesch entered the stage with her band SNAKEBITE in Düsseldorf, Germany for the very first time. Just four years later the power woman made her big international break with her new combo WARLOCK, whose masterpiece “Triumph and Agony” – featuring the future worldwide hits “All We Are” and “Für Immer” – has been sold over 5 million times to date.

Today, after about 2.800 shows in more than 50 different countries on four continents, DORO has become a trademark for thrilling rock music and energetic live shows. Considering the extent of DORO’s international fame and popularity, the wild blonde ranks among the most successful female German singers of all times.

On April 15th, the big 30-years-anniversary tour kicked off in the Ukrainian capital Kiev. Over the course of the following weeks, it’ll be continued in Russia, Scandinavia, South Europe, Germany, on various summer festivals (Wacken Open Air, Metalfest Loreley Germany among others) and eventually even in North and South America.

DORO comments: “Though it’ll be super-demanding once again, I’m looking forward a lot to the fans all over the world. We’ve received so many requests that we’ll even have to postpone the tour’s scheduled highlight and final show in my home town Düsseldorf from December 2013 to March 2014.” Further details and additional tour dates to be announced soon.

DORO – Meeting Doro Pesch Was My Metal Dream Come True: Columbus Ohio, Ace Of Cups, February 9th, 2013

DORO - Publicity Pic - Raise Your Fist - 2012 - #6

DORO – It all took place last Saturday night (February 9th) at a tidy venue called Ace Of Cups in Ohio’s capital city of Columbus; which also has the distinction of being Ohio’s largest city. This Ace Of Cups club is happening and downright cool to the Rockin’ core. Sometimes, as that old saying goes: grand things come in small Rock ‘N’ Roll clubs. On that Saturday night, a grand thing did happen for me at Ace Of Cups; one I’ll never forget for the rest of my Metal life. I met DORO. I met the Queen Of Heavy MetalDoro Pesch.

To state that meeting DORO was a Metal dream come true for me is an understatement of mega-magnitude. We all have that list of Rock & Metal legends we need to meet before we die. DORO was #1 on my list, replacing the late Ronnie James Dio  whom I never did get to meet; yet I was fortunate to see DIO in concert. I guess this entire Metal dream come true wouldn’t have even happened if it wasn’t for… Rob Rockitt of HARD ROCK HIDEOUT fame. Here’s how it all unfolded:

I was staying at a Holiday Inn Express in Dayton, Ohio, with my family, while we were waiting to move into our new home on February 11th. A text came from Rob Rockitt stating: “too bad you can’t get out here earlier, you could go see DORO with me.” My reply text to Rob Rockitt was: “I’m already here, in Dayton.” The rest is Metal history! Rob Rockitt drove up from Kentucky to pick up my Metal and DORO lovin’ ass at the Holiday Inn Express I was staying at; even after I gave him the wrong directions to the wrong Holiday Inn Express, which was across town. Good going Stone. Sometimes I can be a legitimate dumb-ass.

Hanging out with Rockitt was filled with Metal chatter and good-times laughter, both during our drive to Columbus and inside Ace Of Cups. We both could have talked non-stop to each other, cause we had tons to catch up on about our lives. We drove around for a short while looking for a parking spot near Ace Of Cups and hit pay-dirt; finding a parking spot just a couple of blocks away. When the two of us entered Ace Of Cups, we noticed the stage was just a dozen or so footsteps from the front door! Whoa! Needless to say, for standing room only, there wasn’t a bad spot in the house.

With a few regional bands opening the night of Metal memories, Phantom 13 and Sister Sin followed before DORO hit the stage. I really dug the set from the Shock Rockers/Horror Punk band Phantom 13 and Sister Sin’s live set was a Metal knockout! Sister Sin’s vocalist Liv Jagrell is a Heavy Metal Queen in the making… yes, Liv is that good. When DORO finally took the stage, it was as if my life was overtaken by the happiest vibes from Metal la-la land. There she was… in person… working the crowd of her adoring fans, inside this club that felt like home to me… there was Doro Pesch!

This being my first time ever seeing DORO live, it all felt so amazing to my senses. There’s something magical about the way that DORO came across on stage; it’s as if she truly made everyone in attendance feel like an important part of her life, if only for this one live night of songs. DORO has stage presence that should be taught to every up and coming Rock musician in the world today. There’s no denying that DORO’s voice and look are 100% Heavy Metal; only experiencing DORO live is witnessing this dedicated performer in all of her glorious Heavy Metal essence. I would relive this live performance from DORO thousands of times over, if it were possible!

There were numerous moments when I’d swear DORO made eye contact with every fan while she performed… then again… I was in Heavy Metal euphoria. DORO’s musicians are world-class and proved it during each song. I can’t state it any better than that. Four highlights from an entire live set of highlights (for me) were: Raise Your Fist In The Air, Hero, Breaking The Law and All We Are. Did I mention I was mesmerized by seeing DORO perform live?

As DORO’s set came to a close, I was still reeling from hearing DORO sing Hero. Feeling the vibe of true love and respect for the late Ronnie James Dio, as it swirled around the fans and myself, inside Ace Of Cups, was a tender Metal moment for me. It’s called Metal family and there’s no better way to describe it than that. The Queen Of Heavy Metal signed a few autographs from the stage and was eventually escorted by security to the DORO merch table for a meet and greet with her fans. Rob Rockitt and I gladly waited in line to meet DORO for (at least) 40 or so minutes. I recall feeling an exhilaration like none other, as I waited in line (anxiously) with my Metal buddy. All I kept thinking (and saying out loud to Rob Rockitt) was: I’m gonna really meet her!

Doro - Publicity Photo - 2012 - #1!

I’ve interviewed a good number of Hard Rock and Metal (celebrity) musicians in my day; only these interviews have taken place by phone and email. Actually meeting DORO face-to-face is a whole different Metal ballgame, my Metal brethren. Rob Rockitt was just as determined and happy to meet DORO as I was. When our turn came to meet the Queen Of Heavy Metal, Rob Rockitt took my picture with her; as I returned the favor for him. DORO was very sweet, polite, friendly and… down to earth. I never would have imagined her any other way.

For all the millions of words I thought of saying to DORO, I wound up spilling out this babble to her: “DORO, I want to thank you for making my life better through your music.” DORO responded with: “Thank you, that means so much.” I also said: “DORO, I will forever cherish this night and meeting you.” DORO smiled at me, gently patted my right arm and responded with: “Awwwww.” I’ll never forget that brief exchange I had with DORO. Simply priceless, timeless and iconic is the Queen Of Heavy Metal.

I then walked away from my brief meeting with DORO and thanked Rob Rockitt several times on the way back to his car. We both were fortunate to have DORO autograph her Raise Your Fist CD for us as well. As we approached the car, Rob Rockitt put his arm around me and said: “Welcome to Ohio, Stone!” I looked at him and realized to myself 2 things: Metal Buddies and Metal are forever. Metal be thy name.
