The Blitz is the eighth studio album from hard rock band Krokus. It became a gold album in the United States.[2] While preparing to record it, Patrick Mahassen had been tapped to join the band on guitar, Mark Kohler having switched to bass. Mahassen did not join, and the album was recorded as a quartet; Andy Tanas played bass on the subsequent tour.
