Fronted by former Warlock singer Doro Pesch, Doro the band have been the vehicle for the talents of this female vocal legend since Warlockâ€™s demise following their 1987 album Triumph and Agony. Her first release as Doro â€“ 1989â€™s Force Majeure - bore much of the signature Warlock sound and although the band have varied their style over the years and undergone numerous line-up changes, melodic heavy metal remains at their core.
As one of the few prominent female metal singers of the 1980s, Doroâ€™s early career was extremely influential, and many female metal vocalists of later decades have cited her example as encouraging them to enter what is still a male-dominated scene. Her extensive discography is diverse and she has often collaborated with other writers and producers. 1990â€™s self-titled Doro album was produced by KISS bassist Gene Simmons and on 2000â€™s Calling the Wild, she duets with Motorhead mainman Lemmy on the ballad Alone Again. She also performed on the 2008 track The Seer with ex-Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen who joined a host of metal luminaries including members of the Scorpions, Nevermore and Overkill at Doroâ€™s 25th Anniversary concert in December 2008.
Doroâ€™s latest album Fear No Evil, released earlier this year, is a typically feisty collection of metal anthems from one of the genreâ€™s true survivors.
