BLACKWATER'S DORO STORY!
Wow! Here is my story on Doro. First off...obviously she is my favourite female singer/songwriter/performer and quite good looking if I must say so. How did I discover her? Or more importantly, why do I like her so much?
It was in 6th grade and I was a little hellion. I used to meet a friend of mine who was into real heavy metal music and hard rock as well. He introduced me to a huge bag of tapes-most coverless-and told me to take em home and listen to them. Mind you, we would sit in his garage and down 40 ouncers of Old Millwaukee or Miller and listen to rock and roll before school each day. Hey, I told ya I was a hellion. Ha! Anyway, my friend told me to check out the one tape with a female singer. He said I might like it...since there really was not alot of women in rock-Lita Ford and Vixen- are all I remember. I took the tape home and put it in my cassette player (yep...remember them?). The album was called "Triumph and Agony". My friend found the cassette cover which showed a very sexy looking female being held by a old, mean looking wizard. The females name was Doro Pesch and she was from Germamy. The first song was "All We Are", probably the strongest song I had ever heard with a female singer. The music was hard and very heavy for my taste, but I was immediately taken to it. I think the songs on the album still very much work today and still sound fantastic! Two songs from the album, "I Rule The Ruins" and "Kiss of Death" (hence this sites dedications name!) are still my favorite songs from the album. "Metal Tango" still sounds great with its bouncy melodic sound. "Fur immer is mesmerizing and Doro's scream still puts shivers down my spine in "Touch of Evil". I learned quickly that this was a great album and I begin to play it everyday. Cd's were starting to be produced at this time, so I found a copy of "Triumph and Agony" as well as "True as Steel" on compact disc. Because I am an American, I had some trouble understanding some of the lyrics to the songs..since Doro was from Germany and had a very thick German accent, but in time, I grew to understand all of the songs and her accent became a norm to me. I now have all of her albums, solo and group wise and below I will talk about each album and what I like and dislike from all of them.
