Doro Pesch recently recorded the official "anthem" of the Wacken Open Air festival, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. According to a posting on the event's official web site, the song, which is entitled "We Are The Metalheads", is "about the community feeling of the metalheads, about the power and the energy which is given by this music — and, of course, it invites you to sing along and to party hard!"

"We Are The Metalheads" will make its debut on July 30 at this year's Wacken Open Air, where it will be performed by the German band SKYLINE (which once featured Wacken organizer Thomas Jensen in its ranks along with Wacken founder Gösy on drums) and Doro herself. The track will be available for purchase at the festival as well as via all popular digital music providers. All sales proceeds will go to charity organizations like Ein Herz Für Kinder ("A Heart For Children") and the Wacken Foundation, which supports young musicians and metal bands.

"Fear No Evil", the new album from Pesch, was made available in North America on June 2 via AFM/Dismanic/Ryko Distribution.

Released in Europe on January 30 via AFM Records, "Fear No Evil" entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 11. This was the highest chart entry for Doro in her home country in almost 20 years.

Pesch celebrated her 25-year career as the reigning queen of German heavy metal by performing a three-hour set on December 13, 2008 at the 20,000-capacity ISS Dome in Düsseldorf, Germany. HOLY MOSES, LEAVES EYES' and ARCH ENEMY opened the show and were followed by full set by DORO herself, which included guest appearances by Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (OVERKILL), Jean Beauvoir, GRAVE DIGGER's Chris Boltendahl and guitarist Axel Rudi Pell, former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen, SCORPIONS' Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker, as well as a host of other female vocalists, such as Liv Kristine (LEAVES' EYES), Floor Jansen (AFTER FOREVER), members of GIRLSCHOOL, Liv of SISTER SIN and Sabina Classen of HOLY MOSES.

"The Classic Metal Show" can be heard every Saturday night between 9:00 p.m. EST and 3:00 a.m. EST at
