180-gram LP, pressed at Quality Record Pressings

First U.S. vinyl pressing since 1985

Kiss celebrates its 40th anniversary and its induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with a series of individual 180-gram vinyl reissues from the band's celebrated catalog, including their 1998 effort Psycho Circus on vinyl for the very first time! 

Among the titles returning to record store shelves are the band's self-titled debut and sophomore Hotter Than Hell albums (both from 1974) as well as their double-live 1975 breakthrough album Alive! - which was already reissued back in 2008. Also arriving are 1976's Destroyer, 1979's Dynasty, 1980's Unmasked, 1983's Lick it Up, 1984's Animalize and 1992's RevengeQuality Record Pressings did the plating and pressing for these reissues, ensuring exceptional sound quality!

"Revenge, the most consistent, hard-hitting and critically acclaimed album ever released by the non-makeup version of Kiss, celebrated its 21st anniversary in May 2013.

"The Bob Ezrin-produced album pulled Kiss out of the second creative slump of their career. Just as they had been influenced too much by outside trends such as pop and disco in the late '70s, albums such as 1987's keyboard-heavy Crazy Nights found the group following current pop-metal trends far too closely.

"1989's Hot in the Shade showed improvement, but the band realized a more drastic step was needed to improve their place in the rock hierarchy.

"In addition to hiring legendary producer Ezrin (who had worked with them twice before, hitting a homer with 1976's Destroyer and whiffing with 1981's Music from the Elder), they also hired marketing consultants to find out what fans wanted from the group.

"One clear answer: More Demon. For the first time in a decade, a Gene Simmons-sung track, the sinister and grooving ‘Unholy,' was chosen as a Kiss album's first single. The band also abandoned any remaining traces of their glammed-up '80s look, shifting instead to more traditional black leather jackets.

"Most importantly, they delivered their most cohesive and heavy album since 1982's Creatures of the Night. Tightly-focused, riff-heavy and borderline metallic songs such as ‘Take it Off,' ‘Paralyzed' and the ‘Star-Spangled Banner'-referencing ‘Spit' proved Kiss was better off being themselves than trying to fit in with the times." —
