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

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.

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

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.

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.
