Digitally re-mastered edition of the Swiss Hard Rock band's 1981 album. It's fair to say that the Swiss music scene hadn't exactly set the world on fire but with Krokus that situation was rapidly reversed. The band's fourth album METAL RENDEZ-VOUS became a surprise success, not only in their home country but also globally where they secured a strong foothold in the charts and on the live front. The band's no-nonsense brand of tough-guy Hard Rock found favor in a market that was wide open for that revolution. HARDWARE, therefore, was released into the arms of an eager fan base feeding off the energy of their previous album and it didn't disappoint them. The record picks up where the band left off, laying down some serious riffage on songs that display a cheeky lyrical charm; an unexpected side-effect of their Swiss/Maltese heritage. Engineered by British studio master Mark Dearnley (AC/DC, Def Leppard) and recorded in London, the album makes full use of their powerful armory, led by the ripping two guitar attack of Fernando von Arb and Tommy Keefer.
