doro pesch & warlock – a whiter shade of pale

Warlock was a German heavy metal band, assembled in 1982. They also could be described as hard rock or even glam metal, and gained some commercial success in the mid 1980s. By the end of the decade, singer Doro Pesch was the sole original member who remained in the band, and thus proceeded to form Doro, a band which was essentially a continuation of Warlock under a different name. Doro has several classic songs from Warlock on its repertoire.
Warlock’s music is always primarily described as heavy metal. Their style was more traditional in the beginning of the 1980s, shown on the Burning the Witches album, but soon going more to a hard rock and glam metal style starting with Hellbound. The band’s influences are 1970s hard rock and heavy metal acts such as Judas Priest and Black Sabbath, N.W.O.B.H.M., and fellow German metal bands such as Scorpions and Accept.
