“Raise Your Fist In The Air,” the new video from The Queen of Metal Doro Pesch, premiered last week in front of 75,000 metalheads at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany and is now available for viewing on YouTube (http://youtu.be/OCOGy0CvR9Y). The song comes off Doro’s EP of the same name, which is now available digitally on iTunes (http://bit.ly/ryfitaep). Most fans know that New York is Doro’s second home. However, the “Raise Your Fist In The Air” video wasn’t filmed in flashy Times Square; it was shot in the New York borough known as The Bronx. Doro explains why: “For Manhattan, we would have needed permissions to film for each and every street corner – in the Bronx, nobody cares.” No police officers cared, that is – but the video shoot didn’t remain unobserved. “We purposely trudged around the most rundown quarters in our video truck,” Doro elaborates. “The gangs that hung around there were watching every step of ours very, very suspiciously. We felt anything but safe. At times we were downright besieged by dark shapes. I explained to the guys who we were and that ‘Raise Your Fist’ can be considered quite a critical song that names and shames the constantly growing injustice in the world.” When Doro offered gang members and homeless individuals the opportunity to appear in the video, the tense atmosphere was quickly infused with sheer enthusiasm. “That was the best thing we could have done,” Doro reports happily. “The video came out absolutely great... and the parts with the people from the Bronx are the ones I like most.” She jokingly adds: “And it was also way better for our health.” The track listing for the Raise Your Fist In The Air EP is: 01: Raise Your Fist 02: Victory 03: Engel 04: Lève Ton Poing Vers Le Ciel (French version of “Raise Your Fist In The Air” Of her Raise Your Fist full-length album - which will be released this fall – Doro states: “I’ve put all my passion, blood, sweat, and tears into my first record for Nuclear Blast.”
