DORO Pesch of Warlock will celebrate the 35th anniversary of her hit album Triumph And Agony with the release of the spectacular live album Triumph And Agony Live.
The highly anticipated work will be released in many different configurations on CD, vinyl, cassette, Blu-ray, as well as in an exclusive, strictly limited fan box!
Recorded in front of a mega-crowd at the famous Sweden Rock Festival, DORO and her band delivered a show for the ages.
The Pure Rock Shop caught up with Doro to discuss the album today. You can listen in to the full interview audio here:
Doro: “It has always been my dream to play the complete Triumph And Agony album live. The order of the tracks is different from the original album, but we’re playing all ten songs in new, powerful versions.”
The audience thanked them frantically. “It was fantastic,” Doro explains. “There was a killer atmosphere!” And this was perfectly captured in sound and image – to be heard (and seen) on the great Triumph And Agony Live album.
“It’s one of my all-time favorite albums,” Doro reveals, “It’s got some of our biggest classics and anthems like ‘All We Are,’ ‘Für Immer,’ or ‘I Rule The Ruins,’ plus fan favorites ‘Metal Tango,’ ‘Three Minute Warning,’ and ‘Kiss Of Death.’ And not forgetting the album opener and headbanger ‘Touch Of Evil.’ I’m super excited and can’t wait to let fans hear and see Triumph And Agony. And it’s so exciting to hear the live versions of the classic songs. They capture even more magic now. When I see the fans at the shows and hear them scream and sing along, I know what I live for.”
The tracklist includes all ten songs from the 1987 album, but in a different order than originally released. The artwork centers on Geoffrey Gillespie’s famous original drawing of the “Warlock” embracing the blonde rock star.
Doro says: “The cover and the whole artwork including booklet and inlay are a combination of live shots and the amazing iconic Warlock paintings of my favorite artist, Geoffrey Gillespie, who did all the classic Doro / Warlock artworks. It worked out great. I am so happy with it.”
