Originally Pesch was a member of the group Snakebite, but in 1983 she left to join Warlock. In 1987, after Warlock's fourth album, Triumph And Agony, enough band members had been exchanged that Doro Pesch was the only remaining member. What would be Warlock's fifth album was released instead under Doro.
Her ten year contract with Polygram expired in 1995, when she signed with WEA (now Warner Music Group).
In 1995, Doro made her acting debut on the German television program "Verbotene Liebe" (Forbidden Love).
After the "Love Me In Black" tour in 1998, Doro parted ways from WEA and signed at SPV Steamhammer. She also signed a U.S. deal.
