NEW CD "HOODOO" RELEASED FEBRUARY 26th, 2010

KROKUS promise:

«We Put A Spell On Our Fans»

Krokus in full bloom again: The long anticipated comeback album is called «Hoodoo»!

All good things take time and delicate “sound” flowers of the likes of Krokus need special care – especially when they are expected to climb the charts like an artillery of thundering  tanks!

For two years Krokus worked diligently on their highly anticipated comeback album. For the first time, the Swiss rock royalty from Solothurn sheds some light regarding their forthcoming release!

«Hoodoo» is the name of the new album, with which Marc Storace, Chris Von Rohr, Fernando Von Arb, Mark Kohler und Freddy Steady put you under their spell and prove once again that they are indeed ageless.  You will be spellbound on February 26th, 2010, when the new cd is released.

Swiss boulevard paper “Blick” asked original founder Chris Von Rohr the question that was on most people’s mind: why did the fans had to wait that long for this new release? «We are only together for about two years in the original line-up and a killer song – much less an entire album – cannot be written, recorded and produced over night. The material needs to evolve, mature like a fine wine and one needs to be critical with one self, set the standards high and allow only the best material to make it on the album. No fillers – no compromises».

When it’s all said and done, the masterpiece should sound like a mixture of yesterday and tomorrow. Adds Chris: «It was my responsibility as producer to bring out of each musician their individual strength and to continue sound wise where we left off with ‹Metal-Rendez-Vous› and ‹Headhunter›. Back to the roots – but with today’s power, unstoppable like a steamroller!»

It is no wonder that expectations are high. Next spring, when the Krokus namesake tough flower breaks through winter’s ice and starts blooming, Krokus fans will witness firsthand what «Hoodoo» is all about. Describes guitarist Fernando Von Arb: «It’s gonna be an avalanche like, uncompromising, straight forward rock. Fasten your seatbelts, enjoy the ride and rock on!». Adds vocalist Marc Storace: «Definitely a one of a kind original Krokus album that will please fans». Bassist and producer Chris Von Rohr sums it all up: «To keep the end result top quality, it was ok that during the process of writing songs and recording them occasionally tempers flared within the band. We are no lame pussycat rockers; instead we stay true to ourselves. All the blood, sweat and painstaking effort during this 2-year journey was worthwhile!»

Drummer Freddy Steady and guitarist Mark Kohler, along with Chris, Marc and Fernando promise: «2010 will be a Krokus-Year – we will put a spell on everyone. “Hoodoo” style, one at a time! »

KROKUS versprechen:

«Wir verhexen die Fans»

Der Krokus spriesst wieder: «Hoodoo» heisst das grosse Comeback-Werk der Rock-Legenden!

Gut Ding will Weile haben, und zarte Sound-Pflänzchen brauchen besonders behutsame Pflege – vor allem, wenn sie am Schluss die Charts wie eine donnernde Panzerarmada erobern sollen!

Krokus haben ihr mit Spannung erwartetes Comeback-Album über zwei Jahre lang herangezüchtet. Doch jetzt herrscht endlich Klarheit – die dezent ergrauten Rock-Eminenzen aus Solothurn lüften den Schleier!

«Hoodoo» heisst das Album, mit dem Chris von Rohr, Marc Storace, Fernando von Arb, Mark Kohler und Freddy Steady es noch mal krachen lassen. Am 26. Februar 2010 steht das Werk in den Läden.

Nur – warum mussten die Fans sich so lang gedulden, Chris? «Uns gibts in dieser Original-Formation erst seit zwei Jahren wieder und einen starken Song – ja, ein ganzes Album – kann man nicht auf die Schnelle schreiben», so der Kopf der Band selbstkritisch. Es brauche Leidenszeit, die neuen Sachen kritisch zu hinterfragen «und nur das Beste durchzulassen».

Klingen soll es wie eine Mischung aus gestern und morgen: «Es war meine Verantwortung als Produzent, die Stärken aus den Musikern herauszukitzeln und dort anzuknüpfen, wo wir mit ‹Metal-Rendez-Vous› und ‹Headhunter› stehen blieben. Back to the roots – mit dem Dampf von heute!»

Kein Wunder sind die Erwartungen hoch. Wenn im Frühling die Krokusse spriessen, werden nicht nur die Fans im Glaskasten (s. Box) wissen, was «Hoodoo» taugt. «Es gibt eine Ladung schnörkellosen Rock. Anschnallen und abrocken!», beschreibt es Gitarrist Von Arb. «Ein Original-Krokus-Album, das sich gewaschen hat», sagt Sänger Storace. Und von Rohr sagt: «Bei uns dürfen auf der Suche nach Qualität auch mal die Fetzen fliegen. Wir sind keine Kuschelrocker, dafür ehrlich. Die Quälerei hat sich gelohnt!»

Mit Drummer Freddy Steady ist wieder alles im Reinen, und die drei versprechen: «2010 wird ein Krokus-Jahr – wir werden alle verhexen!
