Krokus – Screaming in The Night

From their 1983 album, Headhunter. The song reached #21 on Billboards Mainstream Rock chart in July of 1983.

From All Music Guide.

A typical mid-’80s Euro-metal band from Switzerland, Krokus formed back in the ’70s as a symphonic rock outfit modeled on the likes of Yes and ELP, switching to metal when the band’s former direction proved unprofitable. The hard rock lineup included Maltese-born vocalist Marc Storace, guitarists Fernando Von Arb and Tommy Kiefer, bassist Chris Von Rohr (originally the lead vocalist), and drummer Freddy Steady. Kiefer was replaced by roadie Mark Kohler in 1982. Their brand of metal relies heavily on AC/DC and the Scorpions, with simple, radio-friendly riffs and repeatedly chanted choruses. Their biggest hit was a cover of Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out.” The band has undergone several personnel changes, and their career started to go downhill in 1985. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide

Screaming in The Night

Sons of vengeance, can you rescue me
They got me tied up to an old oak tree
They had me screamin’ and alone in the night
I’m beginning to see what’s wrong and what is right
What is wrong and what is right
Oh, oh, what is wrong and what is right
The gates was gettin’ rusty, as we sailed into the dark
The stars were out and shinin’ against the moonlit hour
The wolves were out and howlin’, most of the time
And I was cold and shiverin’ and bleedin’ in the night
Bleedin’ in the night,
Oh, oh bleedin’ in the night
Screaming in the night,
Fighting for my life, I’d die for you
I knew it all along, headed for the sun,
Our love was true (our love was true)
Screaming in the night
Fighting for my life, I’d die for you
I knew it all along, headed for the sun
Our love was true, ah ah ah oh oh oh
In the corner of the valley, we took him by surprise
The sound of steel rang loud, above the battle cries
I found her lying lifeless, dagger through her heart
I picked her up, and held her high
And I swore to be avenged
Swore to the best, oh swore to be avenged, oh
Screaming in the night, fighting for my life, I’d die for you
I knew it all along, headed for the sun
Our love was true (our love was true)
Screaming in the night, fighting for my life, I’d die for you
I knew it all along, headed for the sun
Our love was true, oh
Screaming in the night, fighting for my life, I’d die for you, oh
I knew it all along, headed for the sun
Our love was true (our love)
Screaming in the night, fighting for my life, I’d die for you, oh
I knew it all along, headed for the sun
(Our love was true, oh)
