Rock On and Off
For decades Krokus has been synonymous with straight-up, quality-conscious hard rock. Madrugada craft heavy, melancholic sounds. An evening like a thunderstorm. Krokus has conquered the world with thunder and lightning, hard licks, strong refrains and Swiss precision. For decades they have been among the finest the hard rock scene has to offer – and now, hard to believe, they are on a farewell tour. By contrast, Madrugada from Norway sweep the stage like a tempest. Dark clouds and cold winds characterise the music of this band, which has had to take some hard knocks in its history, and it crafts these experiences live into spectacular sound sculptures.
