Doro Inks Deal With Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast Records Europe has announced the signing of German metal queen Doro Pesch. The first mutual release will see the light of day in November 2010 and will comprise the 2 DVD/CD set entitled ’25 Years In Rock’ featuring the entire 25-year anniversary concert at the ISS Dome in Düsseldorf, Germany. The performance includes a career-spanning set list and guest performances in front of 10,000 fans as well as a China special, out-takes from Doro’s 2500th gig and more. The release is planned for November 2010.

“I’m absolutely happy to be a part of Nuclear Blast now and am looking forward to putting the pedal to the metal together!” said Pesch. Nuclear Blast founder, owner and CEO Markus Staiger added: “We’re so proud to welcome the greatest, most important and most influential German rock singer Doro Pesch to the Nuclear Blast Family. Doro has influenced our musical universe like no other! Back in the ’80s she already made history with Warlock, and ever since she’s been defending her undisputed title as #1. Her striking solo career is a victorious march and her live performance still fascinates. In addition, Doro is such a fantastic, tender and gracious person who lives for her fans which has impressed us ever since. We are looking forward to the upcoming DVD ’25 Years In Rock’ and the following studio albums.
