DORO PESCH In Moscow: 15-Minute Video Report has uploaded a 15-minute video report on German metal queen Doro Pesch's April 17 concert in Moscow, Russia. Check it out below.

In a recent interview with Legendary Rock Interviews, Doro stated about her latest album, "Raise Your Fist": "We always try to make the best album we can with the most meaningful songs and the best mix of material and that means a lot. This album took about two or three years to make and the first song I wrote for it was actually 'Hero', which I dedicated to Ronnie James Dio, because we love him and miss him so much and I wanted to say 'thank you' and give respect and honor him.

"When I heard Ronnie passed, I was ever so devastated and so were tons of fans and we would talk on the phone, nobody could believe it because it was just so heavy. Then I was in New York and was ready to do a new record and fell asleep, I was almost ready to fall asleep, and I just couldn't get Ronnie out of my mind. I had this melody, actually the whole lyrics were there, they just needed to be touched up a bit. I called up an old friend of mine, Joey Balin, who I've worked with dating back to the 'Triumph And Agony' album and 'Force Majeure'. I said, 'Hey, Joey, I have this song that is very important to me and it is great and right and it's for Ronnie, and he said, 'Yeah, come on over.' Then one day later we had it finished and the next day recorded it and the whole record started from there. That song was definitely the most important to me and I just wanted to say thank you to him and we always play it live and dedicate it to Ronnie as well.

"I love the fans, because you will always hear the chants for 'Dio, Dio!!' before and after we play 'Hero'; it is just amazing. It is beautiful and he is just so important and always will be celebrated."

"Raise Your Fist" sold 585 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 65 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
