Doro Posts New Video Online With Johan Hegg

In only three weeks time the undisputed metal queen Doro will release her 2 CD studio album, "Forever Warriors, Forever United." Her new offering boasts 25 brand new tracks and today, she releases the masterpiece "If I Can't Have You - Nobody Will."

The latest Doro single is a duet that combines passion and melody with brutal harshness. Passion is provided by the blonde rock goddess herself - while the harshness comes from none other than Amon Amarth singer Johan Hegg. Doro says: "The work with Johan, who also contributed to the lyrics, was stunning. We got to know each other during the recording of the Amon Amarth album Jomsviking and it is wonderful that this great collaboration could be continued on my album."

Doro continues: "The video for the song perfectly reflects this obsessive song. We filmed in various ruins with our great director David Havlena. It has become very special, almost like a little movie. I can not wait to introduce the song on August 3rd at Wacken Open Air where the song will celebrate its live premiere with special guest Johan Hegg!" More...

Amon Amarth comments: "United States! We return to your lands this Spring and we will raid and plunder your little cities as we please. For the first time we will be sailing our longships towards the curious native celebrations called 'The Loudest Month' (Welcome To Rockville, Northern Invasion, Carolina Rebellion & Rock On The Range) where we will sack and burn them to the ground and feast on the spoils. Our good friends in the almighty Goatwhore will be joining us on this voyage on all headline shows. You have been warned."

Goatwhore's Ben Falgoust (vocals) adds: "We are looking forward to hitting the road with Amon Amarth and playing some raw as fuck metal for you people. Show up with your anger and let's make some chaos happen. I know you all need to vent some issues. Let's do it together and crush the opposition.
