1987. Triumph And Agony

is the fourth and final album by band Warlock, released on 5 September.

The album was recorded in the US with producer Joey Balin and a different band line-up in comparison with the previous album True as Steel, which had made the name of Warlock known outside of Europe. Peter Szigeti and Frank Rittel were replaced in 1987 by the American musicians Tommy Bolan and Tommy Henriksen respectively. The album also features ex drummer “Rainbow, Whitesnake and Black Sabbath” Cozy Powell on some tracks.

After many, many lineup changes, keeping only Doro Pesch as a constant, legal troubles with one former member or another led the “fifth Warlock album” Force Majeure, to be released under the Doro name. Since then, she has continued a solo career.

this is classics album, there is enough good songs on this album for every metal head to want to seek out this album. Doro’s voice is amazing, and if you’ve never heard it then you are missing out.
