Qadruple Platinum Awards

Things come to those who wait. 35 years after the release of "Metal Rendez-vous" Krokus are now finally been honored by their record company. "Metal Rendez-vous" is considered the most successful hard rock album of Switzerland. It sold worldwide around three million times.

"This album awakened the Swiss music scene from their slumber," says vocalist Marc Storace. The Band from Solothurn charted with three songs from that album in the UK charts, all at the same time, toured a little later the U.S., playing to hundreds of thousands of fans. "We have recorded the album for just 15 000 Swiss Francs [about $15,000]," guitarist Fernando von Arb recalls, "We lived in a cellar hole, put everything on one card and had nothing to lose," says bassist Chris von Rohr. "We never would have expected that it would take off as it did. Great thanks to all the fans! "

​URKNALL IN PLATIN

35 Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung von «Metal Rendez-Vous» sind Krokus nun endlich ausgezeichnet worden. Das erfolgreichste Hardrock-Album der Schweiz verkaufte sich weltweit gegen drei Millionen Mal.

Was lange währt, wird endlich gut. 35 Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung von «Metal Rendez-vous» sind Krokus nun endlich von ihrer Plattenfirma ausgezeichnet worden. «Metal Rendez-vous» gilt als das erfolgreichste Hardrock-Album der Schweiz. Es verkaufte sich weltweit gegen drei Millionen Mal.

«Diese Platte weckte die Schweizer Musikszene aus ihrem Dornröschenschlaf auf», sagt Sänger Marc Storace. Die Solothurner waren gleich mit drei Songs in den englischen Charts vertreten, tourten später durch die USA, spielten vor Hunderttausenden Fans. «Wir haben die Platte für nur 15 000 Franken aufgenommen», erinnert sich Gitarrist Fernando von Arb. «Wir wohnten in einem Kellerloch, setzten alles auf eine Karte und hatten nichts zu verlieren», sagt Bassist Chris von Rohr. «Nie hätten wir damit gerechnet, dass es so abgehen würde. Grossen Dank an alle Fans!»
