Metal Kaoz has issued an interview with German metal queen DORO PESCH, in which she talks about Doro’s forthcoming album. An excerpt follows:
Q: What can you tell us (about the new) album?
A: “I think we have completed 80% of the new record and there are some great songs coming up. Actually, one song is dedicated to RONNIE JAMES DIO and the working title is ‘Hero’. That’s a very special song. I was a big Dio fan and I know that there are so many fan out there are missing him so much, so definitely this song will be on the new record. Also they will be some speed metal songs, some anthems songs and of course some power ballads.”
Q: Do you have in mind when will it be released?
A: “Maybe next spring, because we’ll be touring until the end of this year, so it’s not enough time to work in the studio. And then we need some time to cool off after the tour and stuff like that. I think around spring time the new album will be out.
