More Info:

Double colored vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket. Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 2004 release. Doro Pesch started revolutionizing metal music back in the '80s with Warlock to pave the way for women in the male-dominated world of music. She still has one of the most fabulous voices in metal history. After Warlock's split in the late '80s, Doro continued with a successful solo career under her own name, continuing to release albums of epic heavy metal anthems stamped with her unmistakable vocals. With 2004's Classic Diamonds, she revisited a selection of Warlock classics as well as some of her solo material and collaborated with The Classic Night Orchestra for the re-recordings. The results are simply staggering from the outset, with the utilization of a full orchestra set-up and acoustic instruments fully complementing the beautiful vocals whilst still maintaining the power of the older and heavier tracks. Classics like "I Rule The Ruins", "Metal Tango" and "All We Are" sound even more impressive and captivating than the original versions! Furthermore, the cover of Judas Priest's archetypal "Breaking The Law" benefits completely from this orchestral reworking, sounding just as desperate and intense as it did when it was first released in 1980. These adaptations show with excellent musicianship and a great production shining through overall.
