"This is some of the BEST 80's heavy metal of that decade. Doro really belts out her sexy soul. The entire record is consistant with pure heavy metal bliss. 'All We Are' is surely an anthem that makes you shout along and pump your fist in the air, and an absolute requirement in her live shows.
Warlock's Classic album and one of the greatest in the genre

"A true classic of the late 80s Metal scene is this Power Metal release, the last of four amazing albums from Germany's Warlock. The band was basically Accept with a sexy female vocalist. It was a good simple formula and Doro Pesch's vocals were unique and strangely soulful, while remaining committed to Metal. The heaviness was hardly compromised and this may be the most succesful Metal act with a Female vocalist ever.
The songs are all classics, but leading the pack is the album's opener and the band's most beloved track that being the insanely anthemic, "All We Are". The lyrics to this one don't really make alot of sense, but it's one of the most singable and fun Metal recordings ever. The track is firmly established among the list of great Hard Rock/Metal anthems.
"I Rule the Ruins' is probally my personal favorite Warlock song with a commanding Halford like dominance by Doro in a song about a destroyed relationship that could find itself repaired. The riff by lead guitarist, "T.Bolan" is a classic and this ranks as much a fistpumper as an emotional epic.
Other classics include Metallic speedsters like "Three Minute Warning"(complete with Doro making some cute noise on the mic in the beginning), the heavy "Kiss of Death", and the melodic, " East Meets West".
The album closes with the masterful balladry of "Fur Immer", which features one of Ms. Pesch's most passionate vocal performances, singing in both German and English.
This is a thoroughly delightful Metal album that all serious students of the genre should have in his/her collection. That especially rings true if you enjoy Accept and the vintage Metal sound of the 80s. I'd reccomend the other three Warlock albums as well, but this is the one to own. A classic all the way.
Doro still rules the ruins.
Cover Art:I love this cover. Totally awesome painting depicting a Warlock/Demon Guy feeling up Doro Pesch on the cover, who's looking typically sexy in tight black leather and showing alot of skin. I love where the Demon dude's hands ended up! Ha! Totally sets up the mood of this album perfectly.
Special Note: One of my fifty favorite albums of all time."
