German metal queen Doro Pesch has released her cover version of the JUDAS PRIEST classic “Living After Midnight”
The track, which is a duet with JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford, is taken from Doro‘s upcoming studio album, “Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud”, due on October 27 via Nuclear Blast.
The 19-song LP is described in a press release as “the result of intensive hard work that took the incomparable singer and songwriter back to studios in Miami, New York and Hamburg, amongst others. The album presents Doro at the height of her creative powers.”
Doro comments: “JUDAS PRIEST and Rob Halford have always been one of my biggest inspirations and continue to be my heroes. It was so great working with Rob. ‘Living After Midnight’ has always been one of my favorite songs and I’m so proud of our duet!”
This past June, Doro released “Time For Justice”, the first single from “Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud”, along with a “Mad Max”-style video. The clip was filmed with director Mirko Witzki (CALIBAN, ANY GIVEN DAY, EMIL BULLS).
“Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud” will arrive one day before Doro‘s 40th-anniversary concert at the Mitsubishi Electric Halle in Düsseldorf, Germany.

In September 2021, Doro treated fans to a special release of WARLOCK‘s “Triumph And Agony Live” in various exciting formats. From classic CD and vinyl to the nostalgic cassette, and for the tech-savvy, DVD and Blu-ray options were also available. For the ultimate collectors and die-hard fans, a massive box set was unleashed, making this celebration a true feast for the senses. All of this rock goodness was brought to you by her very own label, Rare Diamonds Productions.
Now, let’s talk about the artwork – an iconic masterpiece that captured the essence of “Triumph And Agony.” At the heart of it all is Geoffrey Gillespie‘s famous original drawing, featuring the “Warlock” in an embrace with the blonde rock star herself, Doro. It’s a powerful visual representation of the music’s impact, and it adds another layer of magic to this already legendary album.
So, whether you’re a long-time fan reliving the nostalgia or a new enthusiast ready to dive into rock history, “Triumph And Agony Live” is an absolute must-have in your music collection.
