  • I think Monster is definitely one of Kiss' most notable releases to date with a range of new and exciting songs, but also the reminiscence of classic Kiss records such as Destroyer and Revenge
  • Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer also contribute greatly to the new album, with Tommy performing lead vocals on the track Outta This World and Eric Singer taking the mic on All For The Love Of Rock & Roll , which in my opinion, are two of the best tracks on the album
  • This is an album that I love, and I'm sure will appeal to Kiss fans and rock music fans of all generations, whether it be the loyal fans who have supported and followed the band since the early '70s, to the new generation of fans they have today

      Released in October 2012, “Monster” is the 20th studio album from legendary rockers Kiss. After listening to this latest release, it’s clear to see why this band has maintained such a loyal fan base and the nickname “The Hottest Band In The World” after all these years. Like the previous release in 2009 titled “Sonic Boom”, the current line up on this album consists of original members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, along with long time members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. Recorded on analog equipment and produced by Paul Stanley, the album features powerful riffs, catchy lyrics and the classic rock sound that

      keeps Kiss fans coming back for more. I think “Monster” is definitely one of Kiss’ most notable releases to date with a range of new and exciting songs, but also the reminiscence of classic Kiss records such as Destroyer and Revenge.

      Like previous albums, the lead vocal duties are shared between the band. “Hell Or Hallelujah” is the opening song on “Monster” and was also the first single released from the album in July 2012. It instantly captured my attention, encompassing Paul Stanley’s energetic and engaging vocals, and Tommy Thayer’s rocking riffs. As the album progresses, Gene Simmons unleashes his Demon persona through

      songs like “The Devil Is Me”, “Back To The Stone Age”, “Eat Your Heart Out” and “Wall Of Sound”, while Paul Stanley’s shining vocals are captured perfectly in songs such as “Long Way Down”, “Last Chance” and “Shout Mercy”. Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer also contribute greatly to the new album, with Tommy performing lead vocals on the track “Outta This World” and Eric Singer taking the mic on “All For The Love Of Rock & Roll”, which in my opinion, are two of the best tracks on the album. However, I think my personal favourite song from “Monster” would have to be “Take ...

      Me Down Below”, a fun, tongue in cheek song with a catchy chorus and cheeky innuendos delivered by both Stanley and Simmons. “Freak” is another stand out track with Paul Stanley on lead vocals delivering an inspiring and often relatable message of being different and being able to accept it in a proud manner, despite what other people may think with lyrics like “I’ve got streaks in my hair, people point at me and stare, if they ask me I’ll say yeah, I’m a freak!”

      While each song is of great quality, “Monster” doesn’t just stop at the music. The band released a

      special limited edition 3D hologram CD cover that’s a must have for any Kiss collector out there. Even after more than 40 years in the business, Kiss continue to impress music lovers and other bands alike, with their ever expanding presence in the rock world and their ability to keep setting the bar higher and higher. This is an album that I love, and I’m sure will appeal to Kiss fans and rock music fans of all generations, whether it be the loyal fans who have supported and followed the band since the early ’70s, to the new generation of fans they have today.
