KRockmusicRaider Review - Krokus - Album Coverrokus spawned a few remarkable records in their early days. Names like Pay It In Metal, Hardware, Metal Rendez-Vous (with which yours truly felt the vampire pull of this band) come to mind. And sweaty, rocky concerts in “the pit” come back to memory. But nothing mentioned before really blew the true Heavy Metal record Headhunter of 1983 out of the water, their 7th studio album. Not equaled then and not ever since.

And a word to the album cover: The metal skull and bones together with the name Headhunter – just superb. A fitting visual to a very #metal album. The disc also features its very own epic spicy stories: For instance, Chris Von Rohr got himself fired from the band later in 1983.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Krokus - Hoodoo - Album CoverWell, well! Who would have thought that Krokus would ever again get together and produce a new album called Hoodoo! This really was a great surprise back in 2010. And then with such a rocky Heavy Metal piece! 

Of course, the Swiss Heavy Metal band ‘Krokus‘ would not be themselves when they would not sound like AC/DC in their Bon Scott heyday – well kind of. Only this time this style direction is much more pronounced than in former productions. 

Now, Mark Storace still has it in him. The old fire still ablaze, albeit a bit quieter than a few years back. Indeed, this whole band of aging rockers still can show a lot of skills to other bands in terms of what good, old Heavy Metal really ought to sound like.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
