5.0 out of 5 stars A Shining Star in the Dawn of the Metal Age July 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
One of the most unsung bands of its time - Krokus was a standout long before metal became mainstream. IMO, Headhunter started it all and the band peaked in 1984 with the Blitz. Long before the hair bands adorned MTV's Headbanger's Ball, these guys pumped out an album that had 9 driving, well-produced, catchy tunes. Vocals flow lock-step with the rhythm, and Fernando's lead guitar and Jeff's percussion are stellar and some of the most underrated of their era. Storace's vocals appear to many as AC/DC wanna-be, though the total Krokus package is beyond comparison. Truly one of the albums that defined the band (pick up Headhunter, Change of Address, and Heart Attack for the others, in that order), The Blitz features Midnight Maniac, Boy's Night Out, Our Love, Ballroom Blitz, and Rock the Nation. -- Damn I miss these Guys...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Driving Music April 28, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While it may not be cool anymore to like bands such as Krokus, I still love this record...they weren't the best band ever, but there are really great songs on this album, and it has some absolutely awesome production. High points include "Rock The Nation," "Hot Stuff," "Midnite Maniac," and "Our Love." The only song I hate on this CD is the cover of Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz," which is a lame song no matter who does it. Pop this one in on a warm day, roll down the windows, let your mullet fly and crank it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars The first tape I ever owned, and still enjoy to this day! February 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A great metal album, these guys and Ratt were 2 bands along with Sammy Hagars solo stuff, that I first listened to back in much good metal then...
the opening riff for midnite maniac sets the tone for this album. This is not Fun metal, not dark metal, not progressive metal, it's just a little bit of everything, mostly driving guitars, GREAT RIFFS and pounding drums and bass, and the vocals screech with as much intensity as AC/DC or Cinderella. Download a song or to and check it out, if ya like it then buy it, If you're a fan of metal you have to get this!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Black album of krokus September 25, 2005
By ogils
Format:Audio CD
Ok I know Krokus weren't the most talented or original band that came out on the rock scene But who cares what matters is there are some catchy tunes on this album that get you singing and headbanging isn't that what 80's rock all about catchy tunes, singable choruses and crunchy riffs. This album was the first mainstream album that did loose some of their die hard metal audience just like what happened when MetallicA released their black album. Anyway there are some goodl Krokus songs like Our Love (will never die), Rock the Nation, Hot Stuff and their of The Sweets Ballroom blitz. If you are an 80's metal lover then go and buy this album but if you are more of a die hard rock fan then approach this album with caution

4.0 out of 5 stars Blitzkrieg... April 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Simply the best,1984's'The Blitz'represented the pinnacle of Krokus's career,with fantastic grooves a la old AC/DC-and Storace's vocals,too-attitude,super tight playing,and merciless songs that just added fuel to the fire and kept going.And this is only one of the great albums that came out in 1984...

4.0 out of 5 stars Catchy tunes ! December 15, 2005
By Johnny
Format:Audio CD
I always loved Krokus and was never ashamed to admit I liked the bands I liked !

The Blitz is a great album with some super catchy tunes on it ! Midnight Maniac sounds as good today as it did back in the 80's as does Our Love.

Any true fan of Krokus or netal should own the Blitz without question.

For that matter check out all the other Krokus releases as well and pay no attention to no minds who rag the bands you love or used to love !

3.0 out of 5 stars good May 19, 2000
By mic
Format:Audio CD
I like to listen to this when i'm in the mood for some harder edged 80's pop-metal. 1983-84 was the best period for this type of music, and this has some good songs on it from the era.

3.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Maniac
After "Headhunter" was a huge success for Krokus, the metal band from Switzerland decided to move closer to 'radio friendly' territory. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid '80s hard rock
I look back at Krokus as AC/DC meets Judas Priest, and while the previous album "Headhunter" leaned more in the latter vein, this one was more even. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Blitz by Krokus
I have always really liked Krokus and this is a good compilation of some of their best songs. As an added bonus, the price was hard to beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its been more than 20 years since I heard these guys!
From reading the reviews here it seems like alot of us older, but not old people reviewing Krokus. I had this cassette back in the mid 80s and rocked out to it with friends. Read more

Krokus was first brought to my attention many years ago. The first time I listened to them I was hooked. I had this before as a cassette. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect specimen of the 80's
When I think of the 80's this is not necessarily the album I think of. However, play this album and instantly the good times are on the tip of my brain. I love this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool
I love this disc; for what it was, Krokus was great. There were killer songs here and Midnight Maniac is one of the best "bonehead riff" songs of all time. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A newer Krokus
My second taste of Krokus, they seemed to have toned it back a bit. Doing a cover of "Ballroom Blitz" (a good cover)followed by "Midnight Maniac", it's a good listening album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic!
If your looking for classic 80s hardrock look no further than Krokuses "The Blitz" . Strong vocals and great guitar licks throughout this album make it an instant classic.
