DORO: 'Classic Diamonds' CD/DVD Receives U.S. Release

German metal goddess Doro Pesch (ex-WARLOCK) has just released her "Classic Diamonds" collection in the U.S. in CD/DVD formats via Locomotive Music.

The CD features nine revamped Doro classics newly recorded by Doro with the help of THE METAL CLASSIC NIGHT ORCHESTRA, including such favorites as "I Rule The Ruins", "Metal Tango", "All We Are", "Fur Immer", "Burn It Up", "Tausend Mal Gelebt", "I'm In Love With You", "Undying" and "Love Me In Black".

Four new songs grace the groundbreaking collection: "Breaking the Law" (a cover of the JUDAS PRIEST standard done as a duet with ACCEPT's Udo Dirkschneider), "Let Love Rain on Me" (a beautiful soulful ballad; also the lead song on a simultaneously-released seven-song EP), the instant-anthem "Always Live to Win" and "She's Like Thunder" (dedicated to Doro's best friend, undefeated female boxing champion Regina Halmich).

The DVD features a 43-minute, eight-song "Live in Wacken" concert spot from the prestigious Wacken Open Air 2004 festival, where Doro performs with her band and with THE METAL CLASSICS NIGHT ORCHESTRA. Musical guests include Blaze Bayley (ex-IRON MAIDEN) and Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA). Following the concert is a 15-minute "Impressions of the Tour," an intimate backstage look, complete with interviews. "Live In Hamburg" follows with over an hour of concert footage. The DVD ends with an hour of "Extras" that include the "Let Love Rain on Me" video, a special "the making-of" about the video, as well as television appearances.

The release of the DVD and CD of "Classic Diamonds", as well as the release of the "Let Love Rain on Me" EP — which features Doro singing in Spanish ("Llueva En Mi Tu Amor") and French ("Pluie D'Amour") — raises the level of Doro artistry to new heights.
