For Immediate Release:

Metal Goddess Doro Releases Fight On September 24th Through SPV!

For over 15 years, the name Doro Pesch has been synonymous with powerful, melodic hard rock. From her earlier days as frontwoman for the Teutonic Metal legends Warlock to her emotive & oft-times experimental solo endeavors, Doro has always presented uncompromising heavy music. On September 24th, the vibrant German native unleashes Fight, her most belligerent effort yet, through SPV.

Typical of Doro approach, Fight is a veritable rollercoaster ride of emotions, a diverse and enthusiastic mosaic of mood and power that befits her expressive nature. The album spotlights Doro's undying love of the freedom to being open to outside influences, which offers Fight frequent surprises. Says Doro on the album's creation: "Compared to previous recordings, Fight sounds even rawer, earthy, totally rooted to the soil…nothing was polished smooth, there are no loops, hardly any effects, but a lot of pure energy and passion."

Doro's band (which includes guitarists Joe Taylor & Oliver Palotai, bassist Nick Douglas, and drummer Johnny Dee) recorded Fight in a near-live setting at Soundmine Recording Studios in Pennsylvania, thus adding to the power and raw energy of the result. So powerful, in fact, that the title cut doubles as an anthem for boxing World Champion Regina Halmich and will be featured not only on national television in Germany, but syndicated internationally through ESPN and other sports networks.

Adding a somber touch to the disc are special guest appearances by Type O Negative doomsayer Peter Steele and Savatage guitarist Chris Caffery on the track "Descent." Elsewhere on the album can be found moving tracks co-composed by the likes of Gene Simmons of KISS ("Legends Never Die"), Russ Ballard ("Wild Heart") and Jean Beauvoir ("Sister Darkness"). Fight is enveloped by fantastic cover artwork by Gillespie, responsible for Warlock's legendary Triumph & Agony and Doro's Angels Never Die.

Doro's recorded fervor is only matched by her spellbinding live show. Having already performed at this year's Bang Your Head and Polo Festivals in Germany and Graspop in Belgium, Doro is confirmed to headline the first night of the renowned Wacken Open-Air Festival and embark on a European tour before embracing the North American tour market this winter.

Fight is a testimony of unbridled passion and relentless spirit in one of the most dynamic voices in hard rock.
