About the Album
Metal Rendez-vous is the fourth studio album by the Swiss hard rock band Krokus, released in June 1980. It is the first Krokus release to feature vocalist Marc Storace; Chris von Rohr had formerly served as the band’s lead vocalist but appears on Metal Rendez-vous as the band’s bassist. The track “Heatstrokes”charted number one in the British Heavy Metal Charts, and arguably opened up markets for Krokus in Britain and the United States, along with “Bedside Radio”and “Tokyo Nights”. Strangely, the song “Tokyo Nights”features a reggae beat halfway through. The album sold more than 150,000 copies in Switzerland and was certified Triple Platinum.
UK-based company Rock Candy Records reissued the album on CD in 2014.
