When DORO started with her band WARLOCK in 1982 it was not to forsee what followed during the next two and a half decades. Due to DORO´s charismatic appearance, her powerful unique voice and her always friendly, down-to-earth attitude, Warlock was the talk of the scene shortly after and her singer, Doro Pesch, crowned the first real Metal Queen. After the end of Warlock DORO started her solo career and became even more successful! She worked with greats like Gene Simmons (Kiss) and Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), toured extensively with her band and rapidly became the star that we know to this day. Albums like her debut, “True As Steel”, “Calling The Wild” or the previous effort “Warrior Soul” from 2006 became classics. But to play only on the safe side never really matched with the philosophy of DORO. Her albums “Machine II Machine” (1995) and “Love Me In Black” (1998) showed the girl from Düsseldorf stylistically changed, courageously realising her artistic vision. But in the end it was always 100 percent DORO. Her enchanting personality not only made her adored amongst fans, also the mainstream/boulevard press became more and more interested in DORO. Until this day she is frequently a guest in the big German chart shows “Hit Giganten” (hit giants) and “Die Ultimative Chart Show” (ultimate chart show) that are broadcasted on Germany´s biggest TV stations Sat.1 and RTL, as well as in several talk shows, boulevard magazines and event shows.
And the legend continues… even after 25 years in the music business DORO is still going strong. There is no need to be afraid, because the Metal Queen says: “Fear No Evil”.
