KISS (Revenge) 1992




Revenge is the hardest, heaviest hitting KISS album since Creatures Of The Night. For this one the band enlisted the midas touch of Bob Ezrin, who produced Destroyer. But the biggest help they got was in the form of Vinnie Vincent. He was brought back into the fold to help write songs for the album. What's weird is that Gene and Paul would even put themselves in this position given that they fired him for unethical behavior as well as being sued by him a few years after that. Oh well...

With him on board, the sound was definitely harder and faster. And that was a good thing. Also on board for drum duties is Eric Singer, taking over for Eric Carr who was hospitalize at the time. He would pass away a short time later. The album itself was dedicated to his memory as well as getting the final song on the album with Carr Jam 1981, which he recorded shortly after joining the band.

Unholy set's the table off on the right foot. This is the balliest song in sound and style in their existence. Could not have opened with a better song. I remember hearing that even Steve Vai sought out Bruce Kulick to give him props for his leads on the song. Nice. God Gave Rock 'N' Roll To You is another fantastic song. Of note, during the making of the album, Eric Carr was still a member of KISS, but had open heart surgery. So when he felt good enough to leave the hospital, he was able to make his final apperance as a member of KISS in the music video, even though it's not him playing.

The opening riff to Take It Off is pure coolness. And Everytime I Look At You is one of the best power ballads with the string sections.

Fave Songs: Unholy, Take It Off, God Gave Rock 'N' Roll To You II, Domino, Every Time I Look At You and I Just Wanna MVP goes to God Gave Rock 'N' Roll. Very cool album cover. The exterior represents the interior to a Tee.
