If you like heavy, shredding guitar riffs with passionate vocals then add this album to your collection- it defines heavy metal.

Doro Pesch is one of the best female vocalist ever and she's perfect for metal - specifically the music that she performs.

This was one of the most well rounded, and most impressive releases of the 80's Heavy Metal era in my opinion. "Triumph And Agony" is also the best release Warlock has ever put their name on....

Lead vocalist, and founding member Doro Peche is not only a total fox, she's got one hell of a voice as well. A pure Metal voice that is infectious, and beautiful at the same time. You'll fall in love with her if you're not careful. In 1987, I know I was....

"Triumph And Agony" was a graet purchace in 1987, and even today this release has stood the test of time as one of the best in Heavy Metal. Warlock totally rips on this release, and the songs are all very powerful and heartfelt. They had a unique sound, one that has not been duplictaed since IMO. I love this release, and from start to finish, it's a great ride. You wont know what hit you at first, and soon you'll understand why "Triumph And Agony' is so highly respected by Metal fans world wide.....

Do yourself a favor. Even if you've never heard Warlock, or anything Doro has done as solo artist, buy this immediately. It's a classic Metal masterpiece, and your collection wont be complete without it....

Highly Recommended. Five Stars.

Doro Pesch is one of the most underrated female rock singers of all time. Lita Ford always gets all the credit in the "metal chick singer" category but that's because not enough people have heard Doro's strong, powerful voice. This album rocks from start to finish. There are no skippers on this one. Doro can really wail, especially on "Touch of Evil" and "3 Minute Warning." The rhythmic bass crunch of "Metal Tango" and awesome, rockin' chorus of "I Rule the Ruins" are other standouts. If you like heavy, shredding guitar riffs with passionate vocals then add this album to your collection- it defines heavy metal.

It was in 1988 that I first heard Triumph and Agony, and Warlock, screaming pure rock; the type I hadn't heard of till that day. To be honest, I hadn't been curious about the band, and their style.I was then, influenced by much harder and heavier bands like Running Wild (of which I'm still a great fan)and Mercyful Fate.I wasd simply under an influence by many more thrash and black metal bands, therefore, I hadn't given a damn for slower and especially female singer featuring bands.How wrong had I been then!! Warlock was just the type I wanted to hear of, with incredibly agrressive riffs as in 'I rule the Ruins'.That was the first track I had heard in a tape which I had barrowed from a friend.This song struck me,and ý surely would be chasing after the entire album.Having bought it, I witnessed how heavy rock should be played,including both mysterious and sentimental lyrics throughout the album.Metal Tango,Kiss of Death,Touch of Evil,are timeless rockers, and Make Time for Love; this power bollad has the spirit of melancholy, and loneliness, it makes me want to fall in love each time I hear it,even today.Für Immer is also another power ballad, half German, half English totally different from the rest of the tracks in the album.Less solid, and talking of a mysterious love, which reveals the sentimental side of Doro.It fits her I confess, to scream for love as well as screaming for Burning the wiches! Metal Tango has the first and only tango rhythms adopted with electrical guitar, which drove me crazy back then.To sum up, the album is a complete success in German metal history,still stands proud against today's so called Underground and grunge..

What's the 4-1-1?

Warlock started out in 1983 and released their first album Burning Witches a year later. The group was instantly compared to such heavy metal peers as Iron Maiden, Dio, Accept, and Judas Priest. In just four short years together, the group fronted by German vocalist Doro Pesch turned out four albums before calling it quits. Triumph and Agony was their final release together and it was probably their mot cohesive. The album starts off with the commanding rock anthem "All We Are". The groups doesn't hesitate to turn the energy and volume levels up to eleven as Doro belts out the resounding chorus with such power and melody.

Furious vocals and hard-charging rhythms propel "Three Minute Warning" into a heavy metal meltdown. "I Rule the Ruins" is a play on words that really implies that Doro rules the bedroom. Who am I to argue with her? She's backed-up by some great chugga-chugga riffs and wailing guitar solos. "Make Time for Love" is a somber ballad that centers in on Pesch's vocal abilities. The addition of piano helps add to the emotional level. "East Meets West" could pass for a war charge anthem. Only Doro could make "Metal Tango" sound so cool with her assuring and convincing delivery.

Warlock put the finally nail in their career with the ever-enduring ballad "Fur Immer". I have no clue what most of it means, but it sure is jarring and sad. That might have something to do with the warm strings and drum combination that makes up the music part of it. Doro Pesch went on to a successful solo career that continues to this day. I have no idea what happened to the rest of the group.

The Verdict

Warlock ended their partnership on a high note that left heavy metal fans with an instant classic.
