Kiss - Monster - International Tour Edition - promo cover pic

MONSTER – International Tour Edition contains Right Here Right Now (Bonus Track) And Exclusive Tour Poster

Right Here Right Now – Available On KISS MONSTER CD For The Very First Time

______________________________________

As reported on the KISS Facebook page:

As KISS take over Europe for the Monster tour, the band launch a special CD version of the Monster album—Monster: Tour Edition—featuring an exclusive tour poster and bonus track Right Here Right Now, available on CD for the very first time. Monster: Tour Edition is unique mini-LP-style package that is strictly limited edition, available only in this pressing. OUT NOW!

The link below is for the UK Amazon website:

Stone Says: Apparently, this Monster – International Tour Edition contains the 1 bonus track: Right Here Right Now; along with an exclusive tour poster. Hmm. I checked the U.S. Amazon website for this tour edition CD and it was not found. I checked the Best Buy website and they have it! It will be available on June 18, 2013 in the U.S. on Best Buy! The price is $24.99 (U.S.). The list price is a whopping $27.98 (U.S.)!! Whoa!!

One confusing thing about the Best Buy U.S. website: They list “2” release dates for this Monster – International Tour Edition. Yup. June 10, 2013 is the other release date. Go figure. I’m guessing June 18th is the real release date?

However, I won’t be buying it for just that 1 song. No way. I already bought this bonus track (as a single) on the U.S. iTunes; after already owning the (regular) Monster CD version. iTunes in the U.S. has Right Here Right Now available for sale on their version of the Monster album. I definitely can live without the exclusive tour poster; especially when it’s gonna cost that much money!

Are y’all confused yet? I sure am. This bonus track should have just been released on the Monster CD, from the get-go. Them bonus tracks always seem to cause confusion anyways. Metal be thy name.

KISS “MONSTER” (Some Fun & Rockin’ Thoughts From Stone, Part 1) – My Favorite Song Revealed!

Posted in classic rock, classic rock albums, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on October 12, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS – Okay. Unless you’ve been living on the Moon or have been out-of-touch with humanity for the past year, there is a brand new KISS album for sale and it’s called: MONSTER. The 20th studio album from the ICONIC KISS was released this past Tuesday, on October 9th, via UMe. Yup, this new album is exactly that… an F’n MONSTER and I mean that in the most grandest way too. Metal be thy name and ring that KISS Army bell. Tell all the naysayers and posers to go to F’n hell.

You see, being a lifetime KISSaholic, how could I write an album review for MONSTER with just one post? I did write reviews in the past for other KISS albums; where I cover the album’s songs and how it sounds, feels, blah, blah, blah and F’n blah again. This time around, for MONSTER, I’m gonna do things a tad different. I’ll write about one song, about the album cover or whatever the hell I want to write about, in reference to this ABSOLUTE ROCKING KISS ALBUM. One F’n post at a time. Metal be thy KISSaholic name and tell all the naysayers… SHAME!

What’s my favorite song on MONSTER? Which song have I played over and over and over and Rock And Roll Over again? That’s easy. Here it is:

LONG WAY DOWN

I’m telling you right now, this song has CLASSIC ROCK oozing from it’s every crevice and the guitars are the HUGE giveaway here. For those who never thought KISS could make a song that would elevate them into the upper stratosphere of ROCK RELEVANCE… think again. With Long Way Down, KISS reached back into their CLASSIC HARD ROCK ROOTS and have delivered a very (un)KISS-like sound that somehow sounds like… KISS.

Paul Stanley sounds SUPERB on vocals while Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer sound simply invincible as musicians on this song. (Aw, hell, that pretty much sums up KISS on this whole album). Listen for yourself and maybe you’ll agree… that KISS MONSTER is 100% KICK-ASS KISSTORY.

Uh, oh. Stone gets a tad pissed off here:

It’s funny how all the BIG NAME mags and newspaper Rock critics all want to be a part of the KISS ARMY now that they’ve listened to MONSTER. Where were all these naysayers and posers since KISS Dynasty was released? KISS MY ASS is what I say to them all. KISS it baby. SSSMMMAAACCCKKK!

Okay, Stone is mellow again. Um, Kinda.

Stay tuned for some more Fun & Rockin’ Thoughts From Stone regarding MONSTER… I promise to keep the blah, blah, blah out of the mix and the constipated KISS naysayers pissed! Metal be thy name.

KISS – “MONSTER” Television Commercial Promo 2012; 2 New Songs Streaming On KISSONLINE!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 5, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS – On October 9th, the 20th studio album, MONSTER, from the iconic KISS shall be released upon the world! I cannot wait! I absolutely LOVE their lead single Hell Or Hallelujah and I’m not bashful to admit this song psyches-me-out. I bought this song on iTunes and it has served me Metal right.

Currently on KISSONLINE.COM, you can listen to the following 2 songs from Monster, in their entirety: Long Way Down, All For The Love Of Rock & Roll. I’ve listened to both songs (several times) and they flat-out… ROCK! Go here to listen: http://www.kissonline.com

Check out the KISS – MONSTER television commercial below! 

___________________________________________________________________

REMEMBER:

If the Rock & Roll from KISS is no longer fun for you, then you’re probably too damn old and/or severely constipated. If you unfortunately fall into one or both of these categories (then) take some Ex-Lax, slap down some Air Supply vinyl on your turntable and go bitch to someone who gives a crap. Metal be thy name.

KISS RULES! Wanna See My KISS ARMY Patch I Bought? It’s Really Cool…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, Music, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on August 30, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Last Sunday I went out shopping for back-to-school stuff with the girls. Shopping for school supplies can get very boring for a middle-aged Metalhead; unless you stumble upon cool KISS stuff, like the KISS Army patch you see above! Whoa!

One of the stores we went to is called Michaels. This store sells arts and crafts galore. It’s a very clean and organized store too. Michaels is North America’s largest arts and crafts retailer, with 1,079 namesake stores.

As I walked around Michaels I saw this KISS Army patch for sale on an endcap display. Since my first KISS Army patch (on my first denim jacket) has been long gone for decades, I decided it was time to renew! What’s the price for this KISS Army patch you ask? $5 in U.S. funds. Whoa.

Here is what a Michaels store looks like:

In case you wanted to know, here is what the cardboard backing (the patch is on) looks like:

As you can see in the above photo, C&D Visionary Inc. distributes this cool KISS Army patch. C&D Visionary Inc. is a leader in selling to merchants tons of pop-culture and Rock ‘N Roll related items. They have a website, only it’s a wholesale site for retailers with valid sellers permits only. Still, it’s a fantastic site to check out if you’re  not a retailer: http://www.cdmerch.com

KISS “Hell Or Hallelujah” – Some Metal Thoughts and Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Music, rock albums, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 26, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS – The 20th studio album, Monster, from the everlasting and iconic KISS won’t be released until October 16th, 2012; in the meantime you can still get your KISSaholic fix from Monster’s lead single: Hell Or Hallelujah. The mp3 for this new offering from KISS is currently for sale at Amazon.com and iTunes. Hell Or Hallelujah was released back on July 3rd, via UME.

I really dig this song and its classic KISS meets 2012 relevance of sound. The vocals of Paul Stanley are purely classic. The backing vocals of Gene Simmons are the stuff of legend; not to mention his booming bass parts too. Tommy Thayer on guitar and Eric Singer on drums have slowly and surely eased themselves up the KISS legacy ladder; their absorption into KISStory has allowed this Rock ‘N Roll franchise to carry on and subsequently kick some serious Heavy Rockin’ ass.

If I was forced to rattle off three bands from the seventies, that have been ultra consistent while becoming bigger, bolder and more badass with age, it’s Cheap TrickMotörhead and… KISS. And still, all three of these beyond legendary bands have been ignored by the clueless “voters” of The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Getting back to Hell Or Hallelujah and its totality of KISS power, pizzazz and totality of psych-you-out vibes. As I listen each time to this song, I float back to my days as a young lad who became mesmerized by a larger-than-life band called KISS. As I listen each time to this song, I am STILL mesmerized by this once-in-a-lifetime Heavy Rock band called KISS.

KISS may no longer be the loudest band in the world, thanks in part to the also legendary MANOWAR; only KISS is the most persevering band in the world, spanning 5 decades, that continues to create quality albums coinciding with unparalleled tours for generations of their loyal fans. I listened to KISS before my family introduced a color television to our household. Holy shit, that’s truth. I now crank up KISS so my kids can think that their dad is “somewhat” cool and also cause I’m a KISSaholic.

My life with KISS has NEVER been hell. My life with KISS has always been… hallelujah. Metal be thy name.
