UK Rock trio RavenEye are thrilled to announce they have been invited to tour Europe as Special Guests of KISS, one of rock’s most notorious and influential bands. They have also been added as Special Guests on the Hellyeah UK tour in April.  The band was recently added to the Download festivals in Spain and France, as well as Bulgaria’s Plovdiv Festival.

Since releasing their wildly successful EP, Breaking Out, and debut album ‘NOVA, RavenEye has toured globally, supporting Slash, Deep Purple, The Darkness and Halestorm amongst others. The band has headlined their own tours through Europe and America as well as performing at major international Rock festivals such as Download Festival (UK), Hellfest Open Air Festival (France), Azkena Rock Festival ARF (Spain), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Louder Than Life (U.S.), Aftershock Festival (U.S.), Maximus Festival (Brazil and Argentina) and  most recently the Shiprocked Cruise 2017. Their incendiary live shows have captivated crowds and put them on the map as a ‘must see live’ band.

“This could be the start of something very big indeed” – Classic Rock

“Blues rock riffs that slither their way into your brain” – Kerrang

“Hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck hard rock epic you’ll thank yourself for finding” – The Sun

“Keep an eye on Raveneye. They are organic, raw and I hear a real ‘70s influence with these guys.  When a band like this nails it, you never forget it. Wait for that riff in the middle of the song.”     – Nikki Sixx

When RavenEye formed two years ago, the then 25-year-old, Oli Brown, singer and multi-award winning guitarist, had already released four solo albums and toured the world for 10 years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani, and been hailed by Mojo as “the hottest young pistol in British blues” and Classic Rock Magazine describing  him as “one of the best and brightest guitar heroes performing in the world today.”  RavenEye’s live performances take their present and future fans on a journey to the next level.

The Bradford Exchange is currently selling these cool KISS Zippo® lighters (above photo). Each Zippo® lighter is $39.99 (US) and there are a total of eight that will be released. That very nifty custom display with the illuminating KISS logo is also an individual item for purchase too. I’ve seen some kick-ass KISS merch and then I’ve seen some cheesy KISS merch; this is not cheesy, in my Metal opinion! Metal Be Thy Name! – Stone.

As a sidenote: I won’t be buying this lighter collection due to my budget. Still, it’s a fun KISS Kollectible to look at and post about.

KISS - Hotter Than Hell - promo album cover pic - 1974 - #74K

On this day in ‪#‎KISSTORYOct 22, 1974‪#‎KISS released their 2nd studio album Hotter Than Hell. My first copy of Hotter Than Hell was used vinyl, which I obtained through a trade, many Rockin’ moons ago in high school. Have no fear, I do have this KISS Klassic on CD now. “Hot, hot, hotter than hell! You know she’s gonna leave you well done!”

Foreigner - Cold As Ice - promo 45rpm cover sleeve - 1977 - #MOSMNSOT330099

On October 22, 1977 – The very memorable FOREIGNER hit, Cold As Ice, was ranked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. This song is featured on FOREIGNER’s outstanding debut and self-titled studio album from 1977.

On October 22, 2015 – The 2014 studio album, Reincarnate, from Pennsylvania‘s MOTIONLESS IN WHITE is ranked at #31, on the iTunes Top 100 Heavy Metal Albums Chart. I post this album often, due to the fact that I simply love it. If you don’t own Reincarnate, well, take a few Ex-Lax and go listen to your Don Ho 8-tracks. For all you cool people, watch and listen to MIW below! Whoa!

On This Day In METAL History – May 20th… KISS “Unmasked” Was Released To The World

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on May 20, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Kiss - Unmasked - promo album cover pic - 1980 - #052080KMO

On May 20th, 1980KISS released their eighth studio album: Unmasked. Shocking Fact Alert #1: Although not credited, the drummer for this entire album was Anton Fig and not Peter Criss. Now that the shock has hopefully subsided, onwards we go. Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley do play on every song on Unmasked. I just had to reinforce that info, just in case someone was wondering and started to panic. (I pause to laugh and quickly regain control).

This album was released via Casablanca Records, with a large poster inserted inside the album’s jacket. My two favorite songs from this album are: Is That You? and What Makes The World Go ‘Round. I even dig the song Shandi. Truth be told, I really like this KISS album and have no problem recommending it to anyone. This isn’t the greatest KISS album ever and it isn’t the worst either. The Elder will always be the freaking worst KISS album ever recorded; that is a fact and tell ’em Stone says so.

Kiss - Unmasked - Stones used vinyl pic - #05339MOK

Above: The front cover to my KISS Unmasked album. Some years ago I had flood waters destroy my record collection, save for a dozen or so. Yes, that life event super-sucked infected goat testicles. However, this album was one that was elevated above the water. Go figure.

Billy Squier - Emotions In Motion - promo album cover pic - #00993MOBSCR83

My first copy of Unmasked was an 8-track version. I bought this 8-track, with loot from my mother, from a (now defunct) department store called Caldor. Around 1983, I traded my Billy Squier Emotions In Motion vinyl for a used copy of Unmasked on vinyl, while in high school. A decent trade, I believe. Long ago trade aside, Billy Squier is alright in my Metal book. The 8-track and 8-track player I had are long gone. That kinda sucks. Some years ago, I finally upgraded to CD, with Unmasked. Why it took me so long to upgrade Unmasked to CD? I just don’t know, go figure.

Village People - Macho Man - promo album cover pic - #3993MOVPOMG

Shocking Fact Alert #2: Did you know that the Village People were signed to Casablanca Records too? KISS and The Village People shared the same record label. That should keep you up at night tossing and turning. WTF!?

KISS "Unmasked" Poster

That’s me holding my Unmasked poster, above! Whoa!

I’ve always enjoyed looking at the album artwork for Unmasked. Who was the artist? Victor Stabin. You can learn more about this exceptional artist and view his works by clicking here: http://www.victorstabin.com.

Kiss - Unmasked - CD - back cover - track listing - 1980 - #33MOAF0520

Above: The back cover to the KISS Unmasked CD, with track listing. Whoa!

This KISS album has always reminded me of Summer. Once again, I just don’t know, go figure. I have traded away many, many terrific items, throughout the years. My vinyl of Unmasked and its poster I could never think of parting with. Then again, who knows? Go figure and Metal be thy name. – Stone

Paul Stanley - KISS - Christmas Ornament - promo pic - #2011PS

That’s it above, my KISS Paul Stanley Christmas ornament. Pretty Cool, huh? I received this ornament back in 2011 as a gift from my wife. She purchased this piece of KISStory from the Moravian Book Shop, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Moravian Book Shop was founded in 1745, by the Moravian Church and lays claim to being the oldest bookstore in continuous operation in the world. There’s some history for you! Metal be thy name! Bethlehem, Pennsylvania… Rocks! Whoa.
