This Sin City set sizzles with KISS classics from across their 44 album legacy: “Rock And Roll All Night,” “Detroit Rock City,” “Shout It Out Loud,” “Love Gun,” and more. As a bonus feature, KISS Rocks Vegas includes a seven-song acoustic set. Punctuated with pyrotechnics galore, the film presents the fire, electricity, and one-of-a-kind rock experience that earned KISS over 100 million sales globally.

The Deluxe Edition of KISS Rocks Vegas is presented as a hardcover package with a 12X12 book, boasting photos from the show and an exclusive CD.

Stone Says: I’m not too interested in buying these KISS figures. My interest now is in buying CDs, vinyl and cassettes; with quite a few Metal magazines in the mix. Heck, I do have a very large Gene Simmons nutcracker on my desk; so you never know! Regardless, these KISS figures are dope.

P.S. I’ll have to do a post in the near future about my Gene Simmons nutcracker. Yup.

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , , on April 26, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

KISS - zippo lighters - promo pic - #MO099099ILMF

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.

Here is the link for more info and/or to purchase:

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on October 22, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

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.

Beartooth - Disgusting - promo album cover pic - 2015 - MOB0531

On October 22, 2015 – The new studio album, Disgusting, from Columbus Ohio‘s BEARTOOTH is ranked at #12, on the iTunes Top 100 Heavy Metal Albums Chart. Jumping flaming jelly balls! Long live Ohio Rock ‘n Roll!

Motionless In White - Reincarnate - promo album cover pic - #2014CM

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!
