DORO PESCH Returns! Page 2

"I feel that my vocals are stronger than ever," she evaluates. "I can do the sensitive stuff now. The heavy stuff is automatic with me. I just want to stay true to myself and make people happy and have them enjoy what I do." Calling the Wild features an eclectic rage of material that is modern but rooted in tradition. There is the industrial sound of "Terrorvision", the anthemic "I Wanna Live", the countrified "Constant danger" and the intriguing "Scarred"; all a far cry form the more trendy power metal that seems to dominate Europe today. But at the same time, it is a record Doro (and Warlock) fans will immediately love, as Doro includes plenty from her hard rock heritage.
The new era for Doro started earlier this year, first at the March Metal Meltdown in New Jersey, and more recently at the Wacken Open Air Festival in her native Germany. Soon it was off to Nashville and her favorite hangout, New York to start writing and recording the new album. But a US deal was still nowhere in sight.
Doro remembers some of the struggles to get her albums released stateside. "The story is so funny... when we were last recording. We were trying every trick in the book. We used lawyers, agents... nobody seemed interested. Then our fan club guy... he has done a great job to keep my name alive in America, he sent a tape of some new songs to several people and within a couple of weeks we had a deal! It was amazing, almost like twenty years ago when we got our first record deal with Warlock! Dave at Koch was so great... the tape actually never even made it to other record companies. Here we had a great feeling and it happened because of my fans. Without the fans there would be no new record!!"
