5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!
KROKUS – What a primo follow-up to 2010’s studio album Hoodoo… and Dirty Dynamite is one Hard Rock blast you just can’t possibly overlook! In recent years, KROKUS have never left the building! From start to finish, Dirty Dynamite is loaded with fist-pumping, knee slapping, beer swilling, good-times Hard Rawk N’ Roll! This is an album I was praying for KROKUS to release, after such an amazing album as Hoodoo.
With Dirty Dynamite, there’s no micro-doubt in my mind that KROKUS is THE GREATEST Rock N’ Roll band to ever call Switzerland home. Hands down. Hard Rockin’ game over. When an album is this potent with psyche-you-out songs, I’m gonna blab all over creation about it and be glad I did! Dirty Dynamite was released back on March 5th of this year, in North America, via The End Records. Every Hard Rock lovin’ maniac out there MUST own Dirty Dynamite!
Guitarist Mandy Meyer returns for this 17th KROKUS studio album and the legendary Freddy Steady is not back on drums. Kosta Zafiriou fills in admirably on drums, by the way. With lineup maneuvering aside, the core of KROKUS is back on Dirty Dynamite and it’s all out-of-sight! Guitar driven, heavy bass and drums all combine with the unmistakable vocals from the legendary Marc Storace. Twelve electrified songs on this album and I’ve got KROKUS fever once again! Nobody get me no damn doctor!
KROKUS does a stupendous job with covering the iconic Beatles timeless classic: Help! If you haven’t heard this cover song yet, trust me, it’s not what you’d expect… KROKUS have absolutely given Help! a heaping dosage of Hard Rock relevance and made it their own. It’s ostrich bump city, all over my face and arms, each time I listen to Help! covered by KROKUS. Sounds crazy? Give it a listen!! Whoa.
KROKUS has proven time and again their prominence in the world of Hard Rock; after so many decades, this legendary band deserves any and all of the accolades that are thrown their way. The vocals of Marc Storace are TOPS and these KROKUS dudes are on the top of their Hard Rockin’ game! Dirty Dynamite is 100% proof and… Metal be thy name.
