Headhunter

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Swiss rockers Krokus had already been around the bend a number of times by the time they scored their first and only American platinum success with 1983's Headhunter. Shameless bandwagon hoppers that they were their origins lay in cheesy, late-'70s progressive rock, the band at least deserve credit for mixing their musical stew just right on this occasion.

Swiss rockers Krokus had already been around the bend a number of times by the time they scored their first and only American platinum success with 1983's Headhunter. Shameless bandwagon hoppers that they were their origins lay in cheesy, late-'70s progressive rock, the band at least deserve credit for mixing their musical stew just right on this occasion.

Mid-tempo rockers such as "Eat the Rich" and "Russian Winter" also receive energetic performances from the band, but singer Marc Storace generally makes a nuisance of himself with his grating screech, which falls somewhere between Bon Scott and Accept's Udo Dirkschneider. Though their ridiculous attempt to emulate the pop-metal posturing of the day guitarist Fernando Von Arb's incessant pouting remains an especially horrifying image would do them little good, Headhunter, at least, remains Krokus' finest moment.
