Info for Forever Warriors // Forever United
"Forever Warriors, Forever United", the new album from German metal queen Doro Pesch boasts 25 brand new Doro tracks. Speaking about the album, she says: "There are some big anthems on the album, countless heavy songs, as well as heart-warming melodies! The album is supposed to give you power and thus contains a lot of energy."
Doro explains: "I think the song 'All For Metal' is an anthem like 'All We Are' with some great guests singing, who are all friends of mine. It's an awesome live song and I hope you enjoy it because it's one of my favorite songs!"
"Forever United" takes a more sentimental turn, with lyrical topics covering friendship, love and companionship. Highlights include Doro's tribute to the late and great Lemmy.
"We've been touring a lot during the last years. We collected a lot of impressions and got to meet many amazing people. That inspired me enormously," explains Doro. "The songs and ideas simply bubble out of me. That process didn't even end while being in the studio. We had 50 song ideas in the beginning which turned into 14 concrete album tracks. Suddenly we had 20 songs, and, in the end, it was even 24. I also wanted to record 'Caruso' in the last recording week."
With "Forever Warriors, Forever United", Doro presents two new records, featuring 19 regular tracks and six bonus songs.
This unique songwriting marathon was based on "Living Life To The Fullest" back in January 2016. Says Doro: "I was flying to Lemmy's funeral when the track's melody and lyrics suddenly came to mind. Lemmy was always very important to me. Everything went quickly from this point. As soon as a song was constructed, I headed to the studio — between all those shows and tours — to capture the freshness and live energy of the new tracks."
The album cover artwork was once again created by Doro's favorite artist, Geoffrey Gillespie. It portrays Doro in the middle of a swarm of wild metal heads exuding attitude, power and positive vibes.
"The cover and the title form a perfect unit," Doro explains, "Just as it should be. It all fits perfectly in line with the songs, which also deal with some political themes."
The long-awaited follow-up to 2012's "Raise Your Fist" will be the German singer's first release since 2016's "Love's Gone To Hell" single.
Last year, Pesch celebrated the 30th anniversary of WARLOCK's "Triumph And Agony" album by performing the LP in its entirety at select shows around the globe.
Doro was joined on the "Triumph And Agony" 30th-anniversary tour by Bolan alongside bassist Nick Douglas, drummer Johnny Dee, guitarist Bas Maas and guitarist/keyboardist Luca Princiotta.
is a living legend! And now the entire world knows it, after the “Queen of Rock & Metal” has received her first ever “Legends-Award” at England’s renowned “Golden Gods Awards” on July 17th 2013 at O2 Arena, London. On September 13th in Berlin 2013 DORO received the “Legend” Award from Metal Hammer Germany.
A true highlight of a career, already going on for three decades. DORO can look back at a really unique journey in the music business. DORO, in numbers this means: Gold and platinum awards for about 10 million sold records, over 2.800 live shows on four continents and in 60 different countries of this world, 16 studio records, four DVD’s. Countless cover stories on all important Music Magazines and millions of overwhelmed fans around the globe.
At the age of 16 DORO started playing in her first bands, but the story of her success began with her band WARLOCK in 1982 and the first album “Burning The Witches”, 1983: the first steps of a world career, that in 1986 got her to perform at the legendary “Monsters of Rock” Festival at British Castle Donnington, as the first ever female musician – and in front of 120.000 frenetic fans.
The same year DORO and WARLOCK took the chance to support JUDAS PRIEST on a world tour. At this point DORO decided to finally quit her job as a graphic designer and to entirely enter the music business, with all her heart, body and soul. On giant world tours in the USA, South America, China, Japan, Australia and Europe DORO conquered a huge fan base. In Spain and Russia she is worshiped like a goddess. Additionally she has done mega-tours with icons such as Ronnie James Dio, the SCORPIONS or MOTÖRHEAD.
DORO and WARLOCK recorded a total of four studio records and had their international breakthrough in 1987 with “Triumph & Agony”. Shortly before, DORO had moved from Düsseldorf to New York, where she is still living today. “Triumph & Agony” has sold over three million copies and reached worldwide gold and platinum status. This masterpiece includes two mega-hits written by DORO herself: ‘All We Are’ and ‘Für Immer’. Up to this very day, those two songs are highlight of every single show.
In 1989 the followup “Force Majeur” continued the mega-success of “Triumpf & Agony” and entered the German Media Control Charts on #5, reaching gold status within just 14 days. 1990 the self-titled record DORO followed, which has been produced in L.A. by no one less than KISS-mastermind Gene Simmons, who is one of her musical idols and added numerous songs to the album.
“True at Heart” was produced in 1991 by famous Barry Beckett (Producer for e.g. THE ROLLING STONES). During the cause of the 90s, more outstanding records like “Angels Never Die” and “Machine to Machine” and the incomparable Love “Me In Black” followed. In 1994 DORO received a well-deserved recognition, as she has been awarded a “Female Artist of the Year” at the most important German Music Award “Echo”. She has been nominated for the “Echo” eight times by now.
In the Czech Republic she won the title of “Sexiest Woman Alive” at Spark-Magazine.
“Calling The Wild” in the year 2000 was another milestone, including ‘Love Me Forever’ and ‘Alone Again’: The first ever duets of DORO. Recorded with the awesome Lemmy Kilmister of MOTÖRHEAD, she shares a longtime friendship with. Another close friend of DORO is 13-time World Boxing Champion Regina Halmich. A total of four entry hymns was created: ‘All We Are’, ‘Fight’, ‘She’s Like Thunder’ und ‘The Queen’.
In 2004 out of her love for animals and several performances at the beneficial concert „Rock für Tiere“ („Rock for Animals“), where she played with the Metal Classic Night Orchester, the idea was born to produce the sucessful “Classic Diamonds” Album and DVD , which feature DOROs biggest hits in a classical style. In August of 2004 fans at Wacken Open Air were witnesses to DORO performing along with a 60-piece orchestra.
In 2006 DORO proves her talent as an actress, as she takes on the female lead of Meha in Luke Gassers movie Anuk – Der Weg eines Kriegers (Anuk – The Way of a Warrior). At the same time DORO composed her first Movie Soundtrack – “Warrior Soul”. The albums’ titel track was also used as the movies’ theme. 2012/13 DORO returns to the big screen, again in the role of Meha for the sequel, which will celebrate its debut in 2014.
Talking about celebratin – on December 13th 2003 DORO had her first big celebration. For her 20-years anniversary at Philipshalle Düsseldorf, star guests like Biff Byford, Lemmy and Udo Dirkschneider entered the stage to congratulate her.
The same day five years later, on December 13th 2008 at ISS Dome Düsseldorf, guests like the SCORPIONS, Tarja Turunen and many more were on stage together with DORO. The entire show is available on the DVD “DORO – 25 years in Rock”.
At the same time the 2008 single release ‘Celebrate’ of the “Fear No Evil”-album was becoming a hit in Spain, where ‘Celebrate’ was in the top ten for seven weeks. Spain is inhabited by one of DOROs strongest fan bases. Readers of Spanish Metal magazine “Heavy Rock” voted DORO as best female vocalist 17 times (!) to this date.
In early 2009 “Fear No Evil” entered the German charts at #11.
On March 13th, 2012 DORO celebrated her 2.500 concert in her hometown Düsseldorf. The summer of 2010 saw the Metal-Queen sign a new record deal with Nuclear Blast, the leading German label for Rock and Metal (NIGHTWISH, ACCEPT etc.).
Her current album “Raise Your Fist” also entered the Top 20 in October 2012. The new album is surely another highlight of DOROs carreer. With “Raise Your Fist” she does not only gather super stars like Lemmy (Duet on the emotional ballad It Still Hurts) and Gus G (Guitarist of Ozzy Osbourne), but also offers a new hymn as strong as All We Are. Additionally DORO dedicates the song ‘Freiheit – Human Rights’ to the human rights organization “Terre Des Femmes”, who’s ambassador DORO has been since 2009.
The current year 2013 is entirely dedicated the metal Queens’ big 30-years “Throne-Jubilee”. The first act of celebration will take place on August 2nd at the 24th W:O:A, where DORO is headlining for the 5th time in front of 80.000 fans. Following Wacken Open Air will be an extended European Tour during autumn with special anniversary gigs.
The current DORO-band consists of Nick Douglas (Bass), Johnny Dee (Drums), Bas Maas (Guitars), Luca Princiotta (Guitars, Keyboard) and Harrison Young (Keyboard).
To top it all, DORO will return to her hometown Düsseldorf on May 2nd and 3rd 2014 for two concert nights, performing a Classic Night (02.05.2014) and a voll power Rock’n’Roll Show (03.05.2014) with illustrious star guests, celebrating her big anniversary.
