German metal queen DORO has posted a video diary from her Winter Tour 2013, shot in Saarbrücken and Nuremberg, filmed and edited by Ronald Matthes:

On May 2nd and 3rd, 2014, Doro will celebrate her 30 Years – Strong & Proud Anniversary with two special shows in her hometown of Düsseldorf, Germany.

Says Doro: “The first night will be classic with an orchestra – as the fans got to know and love it 10 years ago through the Classic Diamonds Tour. The second night will be a full power rock show with all highlights from 30 years of Doreo and several special guests, who accompanied me in the course of my career.”

SWEDEN ROCK 2013

Swedenrock 2013

SWEDENROCK FESTIVAL 2013

Article and pictures by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjälä

“Welcome to the show” – welcomed by KISS  when headlining the second day of the Sweden Rock fest. Well, once again the Finnish Metal-Rules.com team made their annual roadtrip to Sweden Rock. Metal Rules has covered Swedenrock since 2001, therefore it is quite logical to cover the festival again. The 2013 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was tremendous during these four days. The Metal-Rules.com team was there witnessing bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!

DORO PESCH

Doro Pesch

DORO PESCH

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

German vocalist Doro Pesch is one of the best-known female singers in heavy metal, and she has earned the designation of Metal Queen. At first, Doro became known as the lead singer of band Warlock with whom she released four albums including the classics TRUE AS STEEL (1986) and TRIUMPH AND AGONY (1987). The band disbanded in 1989 and Doro then started her successful solo career which includes, so far, twelve studio albums. The latest album titled RAISE YOUR FIST was released last October and this time the tour arrived to Finland. I met the always joyful Metal Queen in the backstage of Club Nosturi and here are the results of our nice conversation. Read on!

DORO: North American Tour Dates Announced

September 19th, 2012

Metal queen DORO PESCH will be returning to North America in 2013 to rock the masses in support of her twelfth solo album, Raise Your Fist! The tour is set to commence on February 1st in Tampa, Florida with support provided by Sweden’s Sister Sin. Exclusive pre-sale tickets can be purchased at EnterTheVault.com through October 5; afterwards, tickets will be available through all normal ticketing outlets.

 

Comments DORO of the long-awaited trek: “I’m so excited to tour North America again! I can’t wait to see all the great fans again and play the new songs off Raise Your Fist and of course all the songs the fans love. It’ll be a set list with the best tunes, hard and fast and lots of anthems and surprises. We’ll have some very special guests at our New York City and Los Angeles shows too and killer support from Sister Sin! I can’t wait to see you guys and wish you all the very best. Until then, raise your fist in the air and all we are will rule the ruins! I love you fuer immer! See you soon.”

 

Raise Your Fist is due out in the U.S. and Canada on November 6 via Nuclear Blast Records and features guest appearances by Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister as well as Ozzy/Firewind guitarist Gus G. Elaborated DORO of the release “Most important to me are the power hymns ‘Raise Your Fist In The Air’ and ‘Victory.’ Both songs have been played live on our last tour and also made last year’s Wacken Open Air shake! For the diehard fans of German songs like ‘Für Immer’ [‘Forever’], there are two songs in the same vein: the sensitive and quite dark ‘Human Rights’ and the very emotional ‘Engel’ [‘Angel’]. There are also a lot of fast songs like ‘Little Headbanger’ and various fist-pumping ones featuring amazing guests like Gus G on ‘Last Man Standing’ which fans are sure to dig live. We also have a song that honors the late Ronnie James Dio called ‘Hero’ and another highlight called ‘It Still Hurts’ featuring Lemmy. The cover artwork has once again been created by British artist Geoffrey Gillespie who is a close friend and companion since he made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for his Triumph And Agony cover as the biggest album cover in the world. Since then, he’s done ten covers for us!”

Hellfest – Clisson France

October 1st, 2011

 

 pub-web-hellfest-20111.jpg

Hellfest – Clisson France

17-18-19 June 2011

Hellfest arrives for its 5th edition. The French festival has been growing incredibly huge and very fast. This year it traditional location in the sport facilities of Clisson couldn’t take anymore of the mass of metalheads coming to this small part of France from all over the world.

This year’s crowd-moving, main acts where none less than Rob Zombie, Scorpions, Ozzy, and Judas Priest, with tons of other goodies in between. An excellent line-up as usual, as it’s part of the winning formula that gave success to the organizers of this event, nowadays already one of the biggest metal fests in the European summer.

The weather won’t be the most pleasant ever, but on the other hand it could have been way worse than just some strong wind and rain here and there, and the sun has been lighting the fields from time to time, still giving the impression to be in summer, after all. But as this festival is amazingly fun if you are among the beer-drinking hellraisers in the audience, you can somehow understand the “hell” part when you have to keep up with the insanely long queues to get into the photo pit, along with running all over the festival area from stage to stage, trying not to fall over some boozer laying on the ground. Oh well… running is good for your health!

DORO TO PERFORM NEW SONG AT UPCOMING U.S. SHOWS

September 2nd, 2011
Doro on Long Island, Spring 2011

Doro on Long Island, Spring 2011

In a recent interview with Canada’s XplosiveMetal.com, Germany’s Metal Queen Doro Pesch discusses the new song “Raise Your Fist” which was debuted this summer at her 22nd appearance at the Waken Open Air festival and how North American audiences will soon get to hear it.

 

States Doro in this interview excerpt:
“It was the first time I performed it . . . It got great feedback.  It will be a killer song.  I want to play it at the 2 shows in the U.S. in September. On the 9th of September at the Gramercy Theatre, we want to do a great DVD release party show and bring highlights of the DVD and do a great concert with great guests and I definitely want to play ‘Raise Your Fist’ to bring something new and exciting for the fans.  At Wacken . . . we played the anthem.  It was originally written by a Wacken fan, a metalhead, and then I did my own thing to it.  It was actually a diehard Wacken fan who did a demo and sent it to the promoter. He sent it to me and said, ‘Hey, how about we make a Wacken anthem and here’s an idea from a diehard Wacken fan.’  I listened to it and thought, ‘Hey that’s great.’ Then we worked on it and continued working on it.  Just to tell you how that song came about, it was a collaboration with a diehard fan and it was actually really good.  Sometimes the fans have the best ideas.  It was so dead on. I always sing it at every concert in the States too.  Usually people know what Wacken is, or they went there. It is a great honor to do it. I am always happy to be there.”

 

Read the entire interview HERE.

 

DORO’s mammoth 25 Years In Rock 2 DVD/CD set – which documents her 2,500th live concert – will be available to North American fans on September 13, 2011.

HURRICANE IRENE DESTROYS DORO PESCH’S HOME IN LONG ISLAND

September 1st, 2011
Doro on Long Island, Spring 2011

Doro on Long Island, Spring 2011

When Doro “Metal Queen” Pesch flew into New York from Düsseldorf, Germany yesterday three days after Tropical Storm Irene made landfall, she encountered a heap of ruins that used to be her home.

“I saw the pictures of Irene on TV when I visited my mother in Germany on the weekend. When a red rubber raft appeared canoeing through a road on Long Island, I already assumed the worst,” Doro states mournfully. “The damage is disastrous.  The whole ground floor was flooded. It stinks, electricity failed, and everything’s wrecked inside of the house. From the TV to the fridge to the furniture. Everything’s grime-stained, defective, unusable.  The worst thing is that pieces of my stage costumes and lots of my souvenirs and presents from fans from all around the world are lost forever now.”

Despite the damage to her house, Doro’s previously announced concerts in conjunction with the North American release of her 25 Years In Rock 2-DVD/CD set will go ahead as scheduled.

“The shows will take place, of course,” Doro says. “For now, I’ve found accommodation in a hotel in New York and will have to see where things will go from here.”

In addition to the two special shows in New York City on September 9 and Chicago on September 11, DORO PESCH & band will be performing live at the Best Buy in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania on September 3, 2011.  This is a FREE, all-ages event and will be DORO‘s only Philadelphia-area appearance in 2011.  DON’T MISS IT!

 

Date: Saturday, September 3, 2011

Time: 2:00pm

Location: Best Buy, 310 Commerce Blvd., Fairless Hills, PA 19030

 

More information available HERE.

 

V.I.P. Tickets for the New York & Chicago shows include a viewing of clips from the DVD, limited edition merchandise, and an autograph session followed by a performance by the Metal Queen herself.  Tickets are on sale now via the links below.

Sauna Open Air festival 2011, Tampere, Finland (June 9-11)

June 12th, 2011

SOA banner 2011.jpg

 Sauna Open Air Festival 2011, 9th-11th June Tampere, Finland

Review by Luxi Lahtinen, live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen & Terhi Pihlaja


The 8th Sauna Open Air festival was celebrated in a very sunny and warm weather, unlike in some other years – and this year the festival also broke their own record, welcoming as many as 26,000 people within the three days.

The SOA festival has truly found an important place among the other Finnish summer festivals, concentrating mostly on old-school Heavy/Thrash Metal and Hard Rock bands – and turning the festival around for the past 3-4 years or so, by booking many internationally big names for the three-day Metal feasts; from Kiss to Megadeth to Dio to Whitesnake to Scorpions to Type O Negatíve – and the list goes on.

This year, the festival organizers had very special grins – wider than ever before, spread all over their faces – and for some very good reasons. Two of the biggest headliners, Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest, arrived at SOA for the first time, with bands like Saxon, Accept, Doro, Cavalera Conspiracy, Joey Belladonna and many others proving to be good company to them.

Read on – the following article is based on the seven most interesting and musically satisfying bands of this year’s festival from your truly point of view.
