DORO – UNHOLY LOVE

Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Hope you’re having a great week so far. To continue our “Metal Women Who Rock” series, today we’re going back to 1990 to the self-titled album by German vocalist Doro Pesch for the track “Unholy Love.”

Doro, who fronted the band Warlock from 1982 -1989, changed her style for this album going in more of a solo direction than her debut solo album, “Force Majeure.” Produced by Gene Simmons, the record includes a cover of the KISS song “Only You” from their “The Elder” album. Current KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer, who was in Black n’ Blue at the time, not only played guitar on the album but also also co-produced it as well with Pat Regan.

I interviewed Doro a number of years ago and she was one of the sweetest people I have ever spoken to. She was extremely down to earth and I felt like I had known her my whole life. If you haven’t seen her live, make sure to check her out, she is phenomenal.

WARLOCK – TRIUMPH AND AGONY – METAL REWIND

Happy Friday Metalheads! Today we take a trip back to 1987 to the final album by the German band Warlock, “Triumph and Agony.”

Warlock released 3 albums prior to “Triumph and Agony.”  When getting ready to record the album, singer Doro Pesch gave up her day job and took charge of  all band business. The album recorded in New York and Philadelphia, became the most successful album by Warlock, going gold in Germany and reaching #80 on the Billboard 200 chart in the US. The tracks “All We Are” and “Für Immer” (Forever) were released as singles and the video for “All We Are” was played in heavy rotation on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, which led to Warlock opening for Dio in Europe and supporting Megadeth in the US. This was their only US tour however, due to a legal battle Doro had with her former manager to retain the use of the name Warlock. The record label insisted she record and publish music under Doro moving forward. She never gave up her fight and in 2011 won the right to use the Warlock name.

The track listing for “Triumph and Agony” is as follows:

1) All We Are
2) Three Minute Warning
3) I Rule The Ruins
4) Kiss of Death
5) Make Time for Love
6) East Meets West
7) Touch of Evil
8) Metal Tango
9) Cold, Cold World
10) Für Immer

Doro has been on the metal scene for over 30 years and is constantly touring throughout the world.
