Heart Attack is the tenth studio album by the Swiss hard rock band Krokus, and is described by the band as "the last attempt to keep the band together in a deep crisis". As well as being the band's first album on MCA Records, it saw the return of original Krokus founding member Chris von Rohr.
Heart Attack is the only Krokus album to feature drummer Dani Crivelli who played drums on von Rohr's 1987 solo album, Hammer & Tongue, and previously recorded and toured with Solothurn rivals Killer. In the early 1980s, Crivelli was a member of Detroit, a hard rock band that featured Krokus guitarist Fernando von Arb's then wife, Birthe von Arb, on lead vocals.
The track "Rock 'n' Roll Tonight" was a live hit and is still played by the band in concerts.
