Having seen Doro perform twice now, there is no doubt that she is, without question, the metal queen. After seeing her open for Y&T a few months back, I went into Sunday night’s show knowing that her and her band were a powerhouse of heavy metal performers. Alongside the metal queen is a stellar band consisting of Johnny Dee, Nick Douglas, Luca Princiotta and Bas Maas who give 110% throughout the entirety of the show.
Opening their set was the fast paced “Earthshaker Rock”, a Warlock classic and definite favorite among the crowd. Doro’s voice sounds excellent live, very similar to the way it sounds on all of her records. As the night went on, her vocal abilities didn’t dwindle in the slightest. Consistency seems to be something that Doro and her band thrive on- they come out giving high energy, and you won’t see anything less for the next two hours. Again, I cannot express how high energy this show truly was, regardless of the fact that they were performing to a crowd of maybe 100 people- it’s similar to watching a band of Energizer Bunnies who can just go and go all night. Among the Warlock classics such as “I Rule The Ruins”, “True as Steel” and “Out of Control”, Doro also performed her latest single “Loves Gone To Hell”. On top of that they played an excellent and noteworthy cover of the Judas Priest hit “Breaking the Law”. Towards the end of the set, Johnny Dee performed an impeccable drum solo that not only hyped up the crowd, but got them involved as well.
You are guaranteed a high energy and entertaining performance at each and every Doro concert, making this a show you won’t want to miss.
