DORO: ‘Love Me In Black’ Performance Clip From ‘Strong And Proud’ DVD

German metal queen Doro Pesch celebrated the 30th anniversary of performing live during 2013 and 2014 by touring the world extensively for a year and by playing three official anniversary shows.

The tour kicked off impressively in front of 85,000 people at the world’s biggest metal festival, Wacken Open Air, followed by two sold-out nights in her hometown, Dusseldorf, where she also started her outstanding career.

And everyone came to party with Doro: Phil Campbell (MOTÖRHEAD), Biff Byford (SAXON), Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE), Blaze Bayley (ex-IRON MAIDEN), Joakim Brodén (SABATON), Hansi Kürsch (BLIND GUARDIAN), Udo Dirkschneider, Uli Jon Roth, LORDI as well as many more amazing guests — the list of stars who celebrated the metal queen on stage comes across like a “Who’s Who” of the rock and metal scene.

Three decades of Doro — three unforgettable nights — forever captured on three DVDs and two Blu-rays; including an two-hour-plus great music movie, which delivers deep insights behind the scenes and inside the heart of Doro. Nuclear Blast will release this incredible Doro anniversary package, titled “Strong And Proud – 30 Years Of Rock And Metal”, on June 24. It is a fantastic memory for everyone who has seen Doro live worldwide during her anniversary and a revelation for all fans of good, hard rock music and classy live performance with blood, sweat and tears.

A performance clip of the song “Love Me In Black”, taken from “Strong And Proud – 30 Years Of Rock And Metal”, can be seen below.

Says Doro: “We spent endless hours, days and nights working on the DVD, because we wanted to present a real highlight for all rock and metal fans for the 30th anniversary. We took care of every detail. It began already with the bombastic stage in Wacken, we worked one year on its design. In Dusseldorf, we even celebrated two nights in a row. One ‘Classic Night’ with a 40-piece orchestra and one ‘balls to the wall’ rock show on the second evening. It continued subsequently nonstop — with an anniversary tour, with led us to Russia, South America and my second home, the USA, among others.”

“Strong And Proud – 30 Years Of Rock And Metal” contains 38 songs in total, a full load of rock and metal, including all Doro classics, many old WARLOCK hits and ingenious cover versions of songs such as “Fear Of The Dark” (IRON MAIDEN) and “Balls To The Wall” (ACCEPT). The filming and cutting is phenomenal, and the sound crystal-clear. Once again, the packaging was drawn by Doro‘s favourite artist, Geoffrey Gillespie.

Additionally, “Strong And Proud – 30 Years Of Rock And Metal” offers a unique music movie with a two-hour plus documentary, “Behind The Curtain, Inside The Heart Of Doro”. It gives the spectator deep and detailed insights into the world of Doro.

Says Doro: “There’s always great impressions from all over the world and never before seen pictures from our life behind the stage. The camera team accompanied us for over one year everywhere and captured very emotional, intimate and human situations.”

DORO PESCH: New Audio Interview Posted Online

On October 15, Rustyn Rose of Metalholic.com conducted an interview with German metal queen Doro Pesch. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

Doro‘s new EP, “Raise Your Fist In The Air”, was released on August 3. A full-length album, “Raise Your Fist”, will follow on October 19 viaNuclear Blast Records.

In a recent interview with Lords Of MetalDoro stated about the the switch from her previous label home (AFM Records) to Nuclear Blast, “The record deal with AFM was up and I decided to check if some other options were available. My current guitar player, Bas Maas, who was in AFTER FOREVER, told me that he had good experiences with Nuclear Blast and that it was a great label to be on. Furthermore, there were several people that I’ve worked with in the past that moved from AFM toNuclear Blast, like Sandra Eichner and Markus Wosgien, and they also told me that it would be a good label for me. Of course, Nuclear Blast is bigger than AFM and has worldwide distribution, which is also very important for us, as we play shows across the globe. I’m still very good friends with the people from AFM and I was also very much involved in the release of the compilation album ‘Under My Skin’ that was released by them a couple of weeks ago, as I wrote liner notes for all the songs that are on that album.”

Regarding the departure of guitarist Joe Taylor and addition of Bas Maas,Doro said, “I don’t think that it made a very big difference on the songwriting process, but Bas is a person that’s full of life and very energetic. You can hear that on ‘Revenge’, which is a song that he wrote the riff for, which is a very high-energy and fast type of song. Furthermore, he’s great as a live guitarist as well, as he really knows how to rock on stage and that’s very important for a show. I’m still very good friends with Joe, who’s been in the band for about sixteen years, and he joined us on stage during the show we did last October in New York. But the non-stop touring that we do is a hard lifestyle and he really wanted to take some time off from that.”

On the topic of her expectations for “Raise Your Fist”Doro said, “I will be very happy when the fans say they love the record; that’s the most important for me. I really don’t keep up with numbers, which are, in my opinion, great to talk about afterwards. It’s nice if we will be able to make the charts again, but to me, those kind of things don’t really matter. Much more important is that the fans dig the songs in a live situation and, since we already played ‘Raise Your Fist’ several times live, the first signs are very positive.”
