Anyone who grew up listening to these songs was very lucky. Hailing from the Swiss city of Solothurn, Krokus was formed in 1974 by guitarist Tommy Kiefer and percussionist Chris Von Rohr. «For us a lifelong dream has come true», adds Storace. With the new line-up in place, the band recorded and released the album in 1980, which was Krokus' first hit and brought the band international recognition. Daran werden wir uns auch halten. Wild times, big adventures, which brought the band, among other things, the honorary citizenship of Memphis Tennessee. Krokus waren auch die erste Schweizer Band die 1982 das Hallenstadion füllte.

But there was also death, illness and internal disputes that drove the band to the brink of destruction. Following an international tour in support of Heart Attack, Krokus went on hiatus, and while Fernando Von Arb formed a new version of the band with no other previous members to record 1991's Stampede and 1999's Round 13, other figures from Krokus' classic period drifted in and out of the group for several years, and Von Arb bowed out for a few years following wrist surgery in 2005. Krokus does not have to prove anything to anyone, not even to ourselves. Die Geschichte von Krokus ist unikal. «We wanted to take in the vibe at the birthplace of modern rock music», comments Storace. Während unserer legendären Karriere rockten Krokus über 2000 Shows auf fünf Kontinenten — verschiedene Städte, einzigartige Orte, verrückte Gigs und treue Fans.

Hunde, bitte bleibt am Ball und lasst es bitte noch ewig rocken!

Am Samstag erlebten sie nun vor 37'000 Zuschauern ihre Feuertaufe: beim Loudpark, dem groessten Rockfestival Japans. Throughout this time the band has also worked on one last project for their fans. Their first album, 1998's Shakra, and its follow-up, 1999's Moving Force, were strong enough to earn them support slots touring with bands like Great White and Uriah Heep.

Mandy Meyer, onetime guitarist for Asia Astra, 1985 , joined the band membership at this point. Krokus released their seventeenth studio album on February 22, 2013. In the course of their legendary career, Krokus has rocked over 2,000 shows on five continents, countless cities, unique locations, crazy gigs, and loyal fans. This simple realization resulted in some of the band's strongest and heaviest material in ages, beginning with 1992's revelatory Forever Free, growing stronger with 1995's excellent Dogs of War after which guitarist Graham Oliver tendered his resignation , and then wavering only slightly in quality -- but not in heavy metal thunder -- over albums like 1997's Unleash the Beast introducing new guitarist Doug Scarratt , and 1999's Metalhead, and 2001's Killing Ground the last two recorded with German drummer Fritz Randow.

No other Swiss rock band sells albums and its back catalogue worldwide like Krokus. They always made sure they never just churned out a boring copy of the original. The next few years saw Saxon wresting even greater control over their own operation, and 2011 saw the independent release, not only of the band's 19th studio album, Call to Arms, but also a self-produced, career-spanning documentary, Heavy Metal Thunder: The Movie.
