Krokus
« on: April 06, 2016, 11:36:58 PM »
Swiss metal band initially formed in 1975 and after recording three albums they added vocalist Marc Storace for their fourth album Metal Rendez-vous. The band scored major success in Switzerland beginning with that record, they would later enjoy worldwide success by the mid eighty's with a string of charting albums and MTV success. They have made a nice comeback in recent years with the albums Hellraiser, Hoodoo, and Dirty Dynamite and show no sign of slowing down. Awesome live band that someday I'll get to catch.

I'm only familiar with Midnight Maniac and their version of Ballroom Blitz which, for my money, blows the original (or the Wayne's World version) outta the water.

Last few albums have been excellent.

pretty cool video too  ;D

This band has been around a long time, here is their first album from 1976 in it's entirety. They started out more of a progressive band. If you don't have the patience to listen to it all the way through jump to the 19 minute mark. Pretty good stuff, very different from what people are familiar with from these guys.

Screaming in the Night is a fantastic tune (even if the lyrics are cheesy).  Early MTV classic.  Storace has an amazing voice.

Krokus is currently on a farewell tour that began in 2018 and they have announced that the final tour will extend into 2020 with North American dates. Last chance to see them in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

A September 23, 2020 date has been listed for the TLA in Philly. I will definitely check that show out, have never seen them.

That should be a good show, those guys kick some ass and still sound excellent. Not to mention they have all or almost of all of the classic lineup still.
