DORO announces new album, celebrating her 40th anniversary

Conqueress – Forever Strong and Proud
DORO Pesch presents new masterpiece!


Watch the video for the first single ´Time For Justice´



On 27.10.2023, the 19-song masterpiece Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud will be released worldwide via Nuclear Blast.

Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud is a phenomenal album and the result of intensive, hard work that took the incomparable singer and songwriter back to the studios of Miami, New York, and Hamburg, among others. The album impressively confirms that DORO is at the height of her creative powers.

To kick off the album release, the metal icon has released ‘Time For Justice’, a fiery first single that immediately thrills with its powerful, wild vibe and is presented with a terrific “Mad Max”-style video.
