The metal queen Doro Pesch and Sweden’s explosive metal band SISTER SIN rocked and shook the HOB on Friday night February 22, 2013.

Doro’s show was over 2 hours of metal and energy that the audience could not stop fist pumping , shouting and head banging with over 20 songs and 4 encores starting the show with Warlock’s “I Rule the Ruins”, then followed by “Earth Shaker Rock". The songs were combinations from WARLOCK and her albums. The band has been touring the US for the last five years, though previously they were doing some East Coast shows. Doro has been consistently recording and performing for 30 years, which is why she is the “Metal Queen” and we will be enjoying more years of music from her.

The band was non-stop energy and very interactive with the audience. Nick Douglas on bass and Johnny Dee on drums have been with her for over 20 years with new members of the band: Luca Princiotta on guitar and keyboards and Bas Maas on guitar. They played 3 songs from the new album Raise Your Fist: The title song, “Revenge” and “Hero”, which is dedicated to Ronnie James Dio. The WARLOCK songs were: “All We Are”, “True as Steel”, “Burning the Witches”, with Johnny’s drum solo coming during “Metal Racer". Other songs they played were JUDAS PRIEST’s “Breaking The Law”, “You Hurt My Soul”, “Un Holy Love”, “Fur Immer”, “Metal Tango” and 4 encores she took requests for that included “Love Me In Black”, “Burn It Up” and “East Meets West“.

Opening the show was SISTER SIN that exploded and grabbed the audience and they didn’t let go of the band and vice versa for 45 minutes and 8 songs with high energy and raw sound, fronted by the attractive Liv whose vocals are powerful and with attitude. The band is: Jimmy on guitar, Strandh on bass and Dave on drums. They opened the show with “End of the Line” from the new album Now and Forever. Other songs from that album they performed were: “Fight Song, “Hearts of Cold”, and “Chosen Few”. The songs from previous album Switch Blade: “One Out Of Ten” and “On Parole” and from the Sounds of the Underground: the title track and “Outrage”. They could have played longer and more songs, including the ballad from the new album, “Morning After”.

The fans got to meet SISTER SIN after the show, giving them valid kudos for their music and performance that is genuine and when they come back will have more people here that know their music and presence. Both bands complement each other and SISTER SIN can hold their own as a headliner.

Overall the night was energizing from both bands and the crowd didn’t want it to end, still shaking from the music and power.
