Doro Pesch Discusses Her New Box Set Magic Diamonds In New Interview

XS ROCK Exclusive Interview With "The Queen Of Metal" Doro Pesch

It’s always a pleasure to speak to the Queen Of Metal, Doro Pesch and in our latest interview with her, she opens up about her new box set that features almost 4 hours of music.

Listen to our interview with Doro below:

Metal fans have a new must-have item to add to their Christmas list this year with the release of Doro’s Magic Diamonds Box Set.  This incredible career-spanning set is almost too good to be true.  When I spoke with Doro recently she explained how she painstakingly hand-picked all of the tracks for this set.  It’s a Warlock/Doro fan’s dream come true.  While covering some of the greatest hits of her career she also gives us some rare unheard gems that are out of this world.  Filled with great live tracks and some truly fascinating cover songs and alternate versions of her songs.  Usually, with these box sets, I’m left wishing the artist would have added this track or that one to make it feel complete, but this set is damn near perfect.  This a great retrospective of Doro’s career thus far and shows that she has plenty of greatness left to come.  True metal fans should push this to the front of their music want list and soon as it releases on November 13th, 2020.  It’s one of the best things to happen for music fans in this crazy, tumultuous year.
