DORO PESCH Discusses Upcoming Studio Album, 'Strong & Proud' 30th-Anniversary DVD
July 28, 2015
On July 26, Planet Mosh TV conducted an interview with German metal queen Doro Pesch at this year's edition of the Steelhouse Festival at Hafod-y-Dafal Farm, near Ebbw Vale in South Wales. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked when fans can expect to hear the follow-up to her 2012 album "Raise Your Fist", Doro said: "We will finish a new DVD. That's the 30th-anniversary DVD. The whole year we filmed. And it's called 'Strong & Proud'. That will be released in March next year, I think the 4th of March. And we're working on a new album, but [it will be] maybe one more years until it's all done."
She continued: "We were on tour and on the road non-stop. When you're doing a festival or when you're playing a gig, I always concentrate on making the people feel good that day and you are in a totally different mindframe to do a record. I have to take a little time off touring. But touring is, to me, the best — I love it the most. But we have some great songs in the making. So maybe this year we wanna put out a single. I think there's a killer song. I wanna do a video of that song, maybe like a little mini-movie or something. Since I'm from the '80s, I want all these big videos, and maybe we have to do some crowdfunding or something, because nobody wants to have a video anymore. I think the record company doesn't want [to pay for it]. But I wanna do it. I think the song calls for [a video like that]. So maybe [we'll release] an EP or a single this year. But next year [we'll put out] the [full-length] record, and a DVD. And there'll be a live CD as well and three DVDs, or two Blu-rays. So it's a big thing, [with], any guests. Of course, Biff [Byford] of SAXON is on it. And so many friends."
Dubbed "50 minutes of expertly crafted Teutonic metal" by Outburn, which crowned Doro "...the classiest lady in metal," "Raise Your Fist" boasted guest appearances by MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister and OZZY OSBOURNE/FIREWIND guitarist Gus G., and artwork by British artist and longtime Doro collaborator Geoffrey Gillespie. An import version of Doro's "Raise Your Fist - 30 Years Anniversary Edition" is available via the Nuclear Blast webshop and includes new and rare tracks plus a bonus CD titled "Powerful Passionate Favorites" comprised of cover versions of DIO, LED ZEPPELIN, METALLICA and KISS songs.
