STORACE (Krokus) – Live And Let Live (2022)

KROKUS frontman Marc STORACE is releasing his first-ever solo album, “Live And Let Live”, in North America. The effort was previously only available in Switzerland. Krokus ended on a high note in December of 2019 with their “Adios Amigos” tour. 13 studio albums & 4 live albums later, Marc wasn’t done yet and formed his own band STORACE. And “Live and Let Live” is the result.
Not to be confused by its title, “Live and Let Live” is a studio recording, ten songs altogether from classic Hard Rock to Melodic Rock and there is even a bluesy number on this album.
For enthusiasts of loud guitars, uplifting hard rock, and all things Storace, ”Live and Let Live” is a dream come true. It’s the first time we’ve heard his voice sing all original music since Krokus’s 2013 album, Dirty Dynamite (2017’s Big Rocks was a covers album).
Although its been roughly half a decade since Storace last laid down his signature throat shredding vocals in the studio, don’t be fooled. This robust rock n’ roller can still bring the heat, going toe to toe with fellow shouters Biff Byford and Rob Halford in the “Holy shit how do they still sound so amazing?” category…

KROKUS – Adios Amigos Live@Wacken (2021)

KROKUS rocked there for the second time in August 2019, this time on the main stage. What belonged together came together and the guys, who have played over 2,000 concerts worldwide in their 46-year career, experienced one of their strongest moments ever.
KROKUS rocks like hell on ”Adios Amigos” (Spanish for Goodbye Friends). If you look at the long-term output of this band, KROKUS is clearly one of the best hard rock bands of the last 40 years…

KROKUS – The Blitz [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

The Blitz” was Swiss hard rock pioneers KROKUS first ‘American’ album, including the hit “Ballroom Blitz”. Rock Candy Records did a much needed remaster of this LP, for many Krokus’ best, as it mixes the band’s early attack with a radio friendly approach.

In just four short years the band had risen from obscurity in Europe to become major players on the world’s stages, particularly in the USA, where their previous album ‘HeadHunter’ sold a million copies and lodged itself at number twenty five on the album chart…
