CD Reviews

Krokus - 'Round 13' (Angel Air)
Mike Reed | USA | 01/26/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"So-so 1999 effort by the '80's Swiss rockers we know as Krokus. 'Round 13' isn't really a bad CD, but it's simply difficult to imagine Krokus existing without vocalist Marc Storace. His replacement is Carl Sentance (of Persian Risk, a metal band from Cardiff, UK)) and he isn't all that great in Storace's place. Only tunes here I thought were decent are "Money Back", "Suck My Guitar" and their direct AC/DC rip-off "Witch Hunt" (oddly enough, perhaps the best track of this entire release). Rest of the line-up includes is sole original member Fernando Von Arb-guitar, Many Maurer-bass, Chris Lauper-guitar and Peter Hass-drums. Pretty much reserved for die-hards."
Track 2 says it all -- "I Want My Money Back!"

"Oh my GOD, does this album (...)! And with Fernando Von Arb being the only original member on this waste of time, it hardly can be considered a true Krokus album. Although I have to admit when Fernando tried this in 1991 with "Stampede" the results weren't half bad (the title track CRUSHES!), but this is most definately not the case here. NOTHING is Krokus about the music on this cd! It's not just the sub-par vocals, there is not a riff or hook on this one that sounds like AC/DC -- I mean Krokus. Do yourself a favor and avoid this one at all costs. If you've got a hankering for Krokus, pull out "Headhunter." If you want something new that rocks, pick up "Seven Hills" from the reunited Japanese phenoms Anthem or "Killing Ground" from the still-kickin' NWOBHM Saxon. Heavy Metal lives, but you wouldn't know it if this were it's only legacy."
This rocks!

"This album was realeased 4 years after their previous album, To Rock Or Not To Be. With only 2/5ths of the band from that album remaining, this album sounds somewhat different and not quite as good as that one (which was _awesome_,) but it's still very good. While TRONTB was a return to the riff-oriented sound of One Vice At A Time (1982) and Headhunter (1983), this one is more song-oriented like Metal Rendez-Vous (1980) & Hardware (1981.) While there are some drum loops and strange sound effects, it is still very much a hard rock album. It is _not_ a "pop metal" album like Change Of Address (1986.) New singer Carl Sentance has a similar sound to previous singer Marc Storace, although not quite as good, but still good. Guitarist Fernando von Arb is an awesome guitarist like always. The best songs are "Guitar Rules," "Blood Comes Easy," & "Gipsy Love.""
