AC/DC win this poll, but there wasn't much in all the albums to be honest.

 

 

Back In Black (Metal Rendez-Vous is a hell of a disc though)

 

For Those About To Rock (Just - Again Hardware is excellent and close on it's heels)

 

Headhunter

 

Blow Up Your Video

 

Ball Breaker

 

Black Ice

Easiest poll ever.

 

Most people here know my dislike for all things AC/DC. One of the most over-rated rock bands of all time. :whistle:

 

Krokus on the other hand...one of the more under-rated rock bands of all time. "Metal Rendez-Vous" being in my top 5 releases of all time.

 

Needless to say... KROKUS in all accounts.

You guys are crazy. AC/DC is awesome, pound for pound the best pure hard rock band. Ever.

 

Krokus is a jokus. (Screaming in the Night is the only song I ever liked by them. Everything else was just a Swiss miss.)

 

Clean sweep.

A bit of a mix for me..both bands have some great albums and both have some average albums. Overall ACDC is the better band.

I don't even have to place any votes... AC/DC across the board for me... never was much of a Krokus fan

Krokus? Really? Krokus?

 

Yes...really.

 

A lot of people refer to Krokus as the Swiss version of AC/DC, hence my reasoning behind pitting them against each other. :sm164::brutal_36:

Yeah, I see the connectin but I must say I'm shocked Krokus has gotten so many votes. I guess Krokus to me is what Poison is to some others.

 

AC/DC is the soundtrack to a million Friday nights.

 

Krokus is the replacement band at the Bern Ramada Inn.

I seriously can't believe Headhunter is tied with Flick Of The Switch, Headhunter IMO is one of the all time classic metal albums and should be winning that poll hands down.

 

I've never heard "Headhunter" but "Flick of the Switch" is one badass rock album IMO.

    • When you say original, you mean this?  
    • W.A.S.P. - Inside the Electric Circus  W.A.S.P. - The Headless Children  Pop Will Eat Itself - Dos Dedos Mis Amigos (Remaster) / A Lick of the Old Cassette Box Ultrasound - Ultrasound  Red Sun Rising - Thread Screaming Trees - Uncle Anesthesia 
    • It's so much better to listen to the original, Erik has done some great covers, but this is a miss imo.
    • This made my recommended list for last year. Far removed sound/style wise from the awesome debut album and only one of the original lineup is featured,  but very very good all the same. 
    • This was released last year and pretty good it is.   From Andy Rethmeier's Youtube channel: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ... well not quite that far away, Hartlepool in County Durham to be precise, a band of rare quality was formed. That band was called White Spirit and after their debut single, "Backs To The Grind" was released on the legendary Neat Records in 1980, the major labels came knocking. They were eager to snap up a band that had far more to offer than the majority of NWOBHM bands that they were lazily bracketed with. MCA Records won the race to sign White Spirit and with a line-up of Phil Brady, Graeme Crallan, Janick Gers, Malcolm Pearson and Bruce Ruff, their self-titled debut album was released later in 1980 to great acclaim. A constant schedule of touring saw the band build up a large and loyal following, but changes in personnel saw Janick Gers join Ian Gillan, to be replaced by Mick Tucker. Toby Sadler took over bass duties from Phil Brady and Bruce Ruff made way for an unknown singer, called Brian Howe. The new and improved White Spirit entered the studio to work on their second album with then Gillan keysman Colin Towns at the production helm. Alas, the album was never completed, the band broke up and musicians went their separate ways. Mick Tucker joined Tank, later followed by Graeme Crallan. Sadler slid easily into Airrace. Mal Pearson stepped away from music for a spell before returning to action with legends The Sweet. Singer Brian Howe crossed the Atlantic and became frontman for Ted Nugent, before achieving mega platinum success as the replacement for Paul Rodgers in Bad Company. So White Spirit were seemingly consigned to music history, with former members proceeding to forge impressive careers built on this promising foundation.  Four decades on and the location of these 2nd album sessions remained a mystery. Presumed to have been consigned to a skip, as was the fate of so many priceless mastertapes carelessly discarded over the years. The day following Brian Howe’s tragic death from a heart attack in May 2020, Tucker and Pearson were on the phone reflecting on those heady White Spirit days. The missing tapes were once more discussed, but still neither had any idea where to find them. Fate stepped in, and whilst preparing to relocate to France, Mal Pearson was rifling through his furniture in storage when he found a dusty old bedside cabinet. Inside were four sets of tapes. One labelled Chiswick Studios – White Spirit. This was it. The one they’d all thought was lost for ever. The tape was handed over to Conquest Music boss and Tank guitarist Cliff Evans. He arranged for the delicate and risky process of baking the tapes to preserve and retrieve the old recordings and transfer them to digital. Successful as the process was, the sound quality of some elements of the tracks were just not good enough for today’s ears, so Tucker & Pearson decided to replace all of the musical accompaniment with a stellar line-up of players. Neil Murray (Whitesnake) and Russell Gilbrook (Uriah Heep) made up the rhythm section, with the guitars and keyboards replaced by Mick and Mal.   Tracklisting: 1. Right Or Wrong (lead vocals – Jeff Scott Soto) 2 .Runaway (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 3. The Dice Rolls On (lead vocals – Lee Small) 4. Lady Of The Night (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 5. Gotta Get Out (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 6. Better Watch Out (lead vocals – Jeff Scott Soto) 7. Don't Say No (lead vocals – Lee Small) 8. Wait A Little Longer (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 9. Holy Water (lead vocals – Steve Overland) 10. Rock And Roll (Is Good For You) (lead vocals – Brian Howe)
