Krokus is a heavy metal and hard rock band from Solothurn, Switzerland that formed in 1974. The group got its start with a sound more akin to progressive rock than metal, but after seeing a performance by legendary rock band AC/DC, founder Chris von Rohr decided to steer Krokus in a louder, harder-edged direction. Several hit albums full of brawny riffs and stadium rock solos followed, making Krokus one of the more successful acts to come of Switzerland. Now nearly 40 years into its career, the band continues to record new albums and tour the world.
