Staramba Presents: “Doro” Band 3D Figurines

As readers of the PiercingMetal Site are well aware, we have attended Toy Fair for several years to bring the latest and greatest stuff that speaks to our comic book and film related topics and sometimes there are awesome items that relate to one of the killer bands that get discussed on these pages. With that said, a company called Staramba has created scaled miniatures of Doro Pesch and her band. Check out the press below and some images and then I’ll return with personal opinion.

The Press Release:
2015-10-26 – DORO Pesch has played more than 2,800 concerts in more than 60 countries across four continents in her thirty year plus career – and now the metal queen comes to your home, whenever you want, wherever you want, forever!

Staramba has made this incredible feat possible. From now on, the Berlin-based startup company offers DORO and her entire band as terrific 3D figures in different sizes. DORO and the band look incredibly realistic, this is due to the unique technology (photogrammetry scanner 3D Instagraph), which scans persons within a few seconds. Afterwards, lifelike and full-coloured figures emerge shift by shift in a highly-modern 3D printer.

Win Tix For Doro Pesch In NYC (2/4/2013)

Poster - Doro - 2013

The Scoop: The Metal Republic of NYC has not had their reigning Queen Doro Pesch visit for a concert since about 2011 if my figures are correct so that makes it wonderful news that she will be returning to us all and bringing Sister Sin along for the ride. I’ve enjoyed the music of Doro since she was in Warlock, and have continually been impressed by her genuine positivity towards her loyal fans as she delivers the goods on the stage like few others even dare attempt. When you go to a Doro show, you are entertained. Let’s add to that the coolness of Sister Sin, who I have seen a couple of times now and enjoyed very much. Fronted by the beautiful Liv Jagrell, this is a band that knows how to dish it out. In my Metal opinion, this is a great pairing of talent. That being said, I am super excited to announce that thanks to the folks at the B.B. King’s management side, PiercingMetal.com is going to send some of you to the show for free. Read on.

Doro @ Gramercy Theatre (9/9/2011)

Logo - Doro

Artist: Doro Pesch
Venue: Gramercy Theatre (New York, NY)
Opener: Operatika, Desdemon
Date: 9/9/2011
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

The Queen has returned “All Hail The Queen!!!” Yes my friends; Doro Pesch the one true Metal Queen was back in her adopted home of New York City and performing a few choice shows for her loyal subjects. Right off the bat this was impressive to me because it was not much more than a week ago that the singer had returned from Germany to her Long Island home only to find that it had been destroyed by the recent Hurricane Irene. Reports hit the Metal websites about flooding and loss of numerous personal treasures and stage items but rather than disappoint her fans with a cancellation, she pressed on and said the gig would commence just the same. Thank you Doro, as you are truly an inspiration to us all in terms of personal inner resolve and strength. On behalf of the Metal Republic I proudly say “we love you”. The gig this evening would be at The Gramercy Theatre and the celebration would surround the recently released “25 Years In Rock” DVD/CD that was recorded in 2008 and features a full concert, a documentary and a live CD. Talk about a chock full of Metal package.

“Fear No Evil” (Ultimate Collector’s Edition) by Doro

Artist: Doro
Title: “Fear No Evil” (Ultimate Collector’s Edition)
Label: AFM Records
Release Date: 8/17/2010
Genre: Heavy Metal
Rating: 4.5/5

Attention armies that serve proudly under the true Metal Queen Doro. The time has come to “Fear No Evil” once again as the powers of the AFM Records union have unleashed unto the faithful an Ultimate Collectors Edition of the release and it is LOADED with extra music and goodies. Having reviewed the release when it first came out, I modified my text ever so slightly about the album to be more on point with this one, and then I added views about the other parts of this giant collectible.

You have to give her credit, because Doro Pesch, Metal’s true reigning queen is certainly someone who keeps herself busy and is always releasing new music or videos for her fans and playing shows in whatever region she can get the schedule set up for. The latest weapon in the arsenal of the Queen comes by way of “Fear No Evil” which amounts to her eleventh album as a solo artist on top of all the releases she did with Warlock. Musically this recording features the same traditional Heavy Metal purity that Doro always manages to deliver and there are a number of incredible tracks that she can add to her repertoire. The downside might be for the listener who is expecting the singer to step outside of her comfort zone just a little bit this time around and adventure into new ground but since she does no such thing there is a chance that this kind of fan will find the release a disappointment. to add to her repertoire the listener who might be expecting the singer to step outside of the box a little bit will be disappointed that she does not. Our adventures begin with the sinister voice of some Hellish demon and this leads us into “Night Of The Warlock” which does in some sense call back to the singer’s glory years. I didn’t mind how “Running From The Devil” continued this albums trend of calling us back to Metal’s classic sound because we had recently found artists releasing albums that brought us back to the time of their biggest successes and while Doro has really never veered off course its nice that even she opted to back a decade or two with this one. Of course this is just my view of how this sounds and you might feel differently when you hear it.
