New Music: DORO Magic Diamonds - Best of Rock, Ballads & Rare Treasures Rare Diamonds Release: 13 November 2020

On November 13th, 2020, Metal Queen  DORO  proves once again that she literally gives her all when she cares about something. On this November 13th,  DORO 's own label,  Rare Diamonds Productions , will release her long-awaited best-of album  Magic Diamonds - Best Of Rock, Ballads & Rare Treasures .

And that's what it's all about: 56(!) songs on three CDs with a total of almost four(!) hours playing time! An all-around impressive showcase that spans four decades of  DORO  music, and with 20 rock songs, 18 ballads, and 18 rare treasures, offers everything a fan's heart desires - and a lot more!

As an exclusive to Europe, the three CDs will be released in a high-quality box containing a valuable, exclusive  DORO  perfume called "True At Heart" as well as a  Magic Diamonds  tube scarf! "I have been dreaming of my own perfume for many years," says  DORO . "Now the time has finally come." The fragrance - and therefore, also the 3CD box - is available in two versions: "For Him" and "For Her."  (PLEASE NOTE: due to shipping restrictions, this limited-edition version will NOT be available for sale in North America.)

Of course, vinyl lover  DORO  makes sure that  Magic Diamonds - Best Of Rock, Ballads & Rare Treasures  is also available as an official 4LP version, on colored vinyl. "The big vinyl box contains two double LPs,” she reveals, “and, as an encore, the  Rare Treasures  bonus CD and a poster.”

Whichever version of these magical best-of boxes you secure, you open a full treasure chest full of mega-hits, powerful off-beat songs, and enchanting ballads with melodies to kneel down; as an encore, you will find rare pearls in the form of previously unreleased treasures such as the NYC version of "Prisoner Of Love" or a brand-new re-recording of  DORO 's favorite song "Love Me In Black."

DORO  explains: "Since we all miss the concerts so much at the moment, I decided to release great live moments of songs like ‘Even Angels Cry,’ ‘Rare Diamonds,’ ‘Revenge,’ ‘Raise Your Fist In The Air,’ as well as a wonderful version of ‘Make Time For Love’ here, as well.”

What would a best-of album by  DORO  be without reminiscences of the great friendships  DORO  has with her colleagues and heroes of heavy metal? And so here  DORO  delivers fantastic interpretations of Dio's "Egypt (The Chains Are On)," Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," and Judas Priest's "Breaking The Law," the latter in an orchestral version in duet with Udo Dirkschneider.

In addition, the metal queen presents enchanting duets with her favorite friend Lemmy ("Love Me Forever"), Pete Steele ("Descent"), and Tarja Turunen ("Walking With The Angels") and serves her great anthems like "Fight" and "She's Like Thunder," which she wrote for her friend, boxing world champion Regina Halmich. Not to forget "Warrior Soul," the movie soundtrack of the movie  Anuk - The Way of the Warrior , in which  DORO  played the female lead role, and of which part 2 and part 3 will be released soon.

All in all, an unbeatable package that brings a bright light to dismal November days - true to  DORO 's motto in life: "I make music to give people joy, hope, and positive energy." And "My songs are often based on personal experiences that are also of a spiritual nature - like ‘1000 Mal Gelebt,’ ‘Undying’ or ‘Fortune Teller’!”

You don't have to be a fortune teller to predict that  Magic Diamonds - Best Of Rock, Ballads & Rare Treasures  will be celebrated by the fans. And rightly so!
