Doro, Earthen Grave All Ages Early Warnings (Music) Recommended Soundboard

When: Sun., Sept. 11, 7 p.m. 2011

Doro Pesch, the only constant member of 80s German metal band Warlock, hit the ground running when she lost the rights to that name in 1988—ever since then she's driven her own band hard, maintaining a grueling schedule of touring and recording. This month Nuclear Blast is releasing a deluxe two-DVD/CD package, 25 Years in Rock, which consists mostly of a live Doro set from a 25th-anniversary concert in 2008, with commentary and extras (including clips from her 2,500th concert) and a cover that depicts her as a warrior woman astride a dragon, Heavy Metal magazine style. If you like your epic metal joyously earnest and untouched by the passing of trends, with clean vocals, clear lyrics, melodic hooks, and plenty of opportunities for fist pumping, then Doro is one of your best bets this year. After this rare two-night appearance in the U.S. (the other show's in New York on Friday), she'll go back into the studio to finish the follow-up to 2009's Fear No Evil, so with any luck it won't be years before we see her here again. —Monica Kendrick Earthen Grave opens.

Price: $23
