On Forever Warriors, Doro channels her inner wild warrior, with tracks like "Bastardos" or the first single "All For Metal" affirming this. Her duet with Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg "If I Can't Have You..." is sure to bring any metal head to their knees. This is Doro like you've never heard her before!
Forever United takes a more sentimental turn, with lyrical topics covering friendship, love and companionship. Highlights include Doro's tribute to the late and great Lemmy.
"We've been touring a lot during the last years. We collected a lot of impressions and got to meet many amazing people. That inspired me enormously," explains Doro. "The songs and ideas simply bubble out of me. That process didn't even end while being in the studio. We had 50 song ideas in the beginning which turned into 14 concrete album tracks. Suddenly we had 20 songs, and in the end it was even 24. I also wanted to record 'Caruso' in the last recording week."
With Forever Warriors, Forever United, Doro presents two new records, featuring 19 regular tracks and six bonus songs, which include some big surprises.
This unique song writing marathon was based on "Living Life To The Fullest" back in January 2016. Says Doro, "I was flying to Lemmy's funeral when the track's melody and lyrics suddenly came to mind. Lemmy was always very important to me. Everything went quickly from this point. As soon as a song was constructed, I headed to the studio - between all those shows and tours - to capture the freshness and live energy of the new tracks."
The result is 25 songs in the form of two fantastic albums, showcasing all of Doro's wonderful and varied facets. Forever Warriors, Forever United is another huge chapter added to her long history.
The album cover artwork was once again created by Doro's favourite artist, Geoffrey Gillespie. It portrays Doro in the middle of a swarm of wild metal heads exuding attitude, power and positive vibes. "The cover and the title form a perfect unit," Doro explains, "Just as it should be. It all fits perfectly in line with the songs, which also deal with some political themes."
