Music Millennium

Digitally remastered edition. Riding high on a wave of creative and commercial success, Swiss rockers Krokus had the world at their feet. 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 #25 on the album chart. So at this point in their career all eyes were on the band, expecting them to continue their upward trajectory but internally all was not as it should've been. The importance of the band's high ranking status was underscored by the appointment of producer Bruce Fairbairn (flanked by engineers Bob Rock and Mike Fraser) a man who had guided the recording career of Canadian rockers Loverboy to platinum heights, and who would later find huge success with Bon Jovi and AC/DC. Fairbairn's ear for commerciality took the band in a new streamlined, but still hard rock direction, one highlighted by electrifying tracks such as 'Midnite Maniac', 'Boys Night Out' (written by Bryan Adams) and a tub thumping cover of the Sweet's 'Ballroom Blitz'.
