A typical mid-'80s Euro-metal band from Switzerland, Krokus formed back in the '70s as a symphonic rock outfit modeled on the likes of Yes and ELP, switching to metal when the band's former direction proved unprofitable. The hard rock lineup included Maltese-born vocalist Marc Storace, guitarists Fernando Von Arb and Tommy Kiefer, bassist Chris Von Rohr (originally the lead vocalist), and drummer Freddy Steady. Kiefer was replaced by roadie Mark Kohler in 1982. Their brand of metal relies heavily on AC/DC and the Scorpions, with simple, radio-friendly riffs and repeatedly chanted choruses.
The first huge success! Triple platinum in Switzerland (over 150,000 sold in this country alone). Marc Storace appeared for the first time as the lead vocalist. The three rock classics, “Bedside Radio”, “Heatstrokes” and “Tokyo Nights” opened up the doors to Great Britain and the USA. “Heatstrokes” charted number one in the British Heavy Metal charts.
1. Heatstrokes (4:00) 2. Bedside Radio (3:22) 3. Come On (4:29) 4. Streamer (6:44) 5. Shy Kid (2:33) 6. Tokyo Nights (5:54) 7. Lady Double Dealer (3:13) 8. Fire (6:07) 9. No Way (4:02) 10. Back-Seat Rock 'n' Roll (3:15)
Produced by Krokus and Martin Pearson
