Loaded Radio’s The Sinister Minister recently sat backstage with the legendary Doro to talk about her current tour, festivals and plans for the future.

The former Warlock frontwoman just wrapped up a recent North American run, and is now headed off to Europe to continue the run in support of her twelfth studio album, 2012’s ‘Raise Your Fist.’

Doro Pesch started her career in garage bands in her native Düsseldorf underground scene and achieved some commercial success with Warlock in the 1980s. Warlock went through numerous line-up changes leaving Pesch as the only original member of the band. She began a solo career under the name Doro, in order to avoid legal battles between her record label and her former manager.

During the 1990s, her record label relegated her productions only to the European region, where she continued to tour extensively. She remained a successful charting artist in Germany, despite living and producing her albums in the US. When classic heavy metal saw it’s resugence, she returned to tour all over the world and her popularity as a veteran singer grew considerably.

Doro is also known for her duets performed both live and in studio with other singers and musicians of the metal scene, whom she has befriended in her long career.

To this date, she has released sixteen studio albums, the latest being Raise Your Fist in 2012. Doro continues her recording career and is prolific touring artist all over the world.
