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.

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
