A SONIC BOOM FOR KISS FANS:

It looks like we might have a title for the new Kiss album - Sonic Boom. The album is due in stores October 6 via WalMart and like Journey set before them, the Kiss package will feature a disc of new material, a disc of re-recorded hits (already released in Japan last year), plus a DVD. The 3-Disc set will retail for around US$12.

 

 

And this from hardradio.com:

 

According to Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS), the forthcoming KISS studio album will be called Sonic Boom. KISS recently invited the press into the studio to listen to some songs from their upcoming new album. Here is what Guitar Player Magazine's Editor wrote: "Heard 5 songs. If you dig KISS, you're gonna dig this new album. Paul (Stanley) sings his ass off. Eric (Singer) plays some amazingly powerful drums. Gene (Simmons) was finally made to play all of his bass parts (apparently, in the past, if someone had a cool bass idea, he let them play it), and he DOES have a pretty driving sound. Finally, Paul and Tommy (Thayer)'s guitars sound HUGE - with some fab riffs and '70s-style solos."

Of course I'll pick it up, especially if it's gonna be the 2-CD/1 DVD pack described here. That sounds sweet as hell. Glad I didn't lay out big import $$ for that "Jigoku-Retsuden" set of re-recorded hits from Japan now. I had a feeling it'd surface on this side of the ocean eventually. Gene wouldn't be satisfied with just sucking the $ out of Japanese fans. :lol:

 

On another KISS related note, has anyone seen the KISS M&M's advertisement yet?

Looks to be a cool package. I will definitely buy the album and the M&M's.

 

Gene seems to have cornered every market in Kiss licensing except Medical. Who wouldn't want a KissWalker for Grandmother, KissPacemaker for Grandfather, KissSuppositories, KissHeartValves, KissFacePaintTransplants.

 

There is still time. :kiss:

-----------------------------------------

KISS and Walmart announced today that SONIC BOOM-the band's highly anticipated CD, and its first new material in 11 years-will be sold in the U.S. and Canada exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations beginning October 6. SONIC BOOM, produced by the band's Paul Stanley in Los Angeles, is the centerpiece of a three-disc set that also features a completely re-recorded greatest hits CD as well as a live DVD shot in Argentina during the band's recent, record-breaking KISS ALIVE 35 South American tour. The CD set will retail for $12, with pre-orders starting in September on Walmart.com.

 

KISS' Gene Simmons says, "SONIC BOOM may be the best new record we've done since Destroyer! It is Rock And Roll Over meets Love Gun. The world's biggest retailer had better get ready for the hottest band in the world and hire more cashiers before October 6th!"

 

Stanley continues, "Through all of the albums that are considered our classics, we tried to always find ways to give our fans extras that went beyond just the music. Besides our making the best KISS album in decades, Walmart has made it possible for us to include a bonus CD with 15 of our most famous songs and an additional live DVD, shot during our recent concert in Buenos Aires. So in every sense, SONIC BOOM is the ultimate return to classic KISS form. You wanted the best, you got the best!"

 

Walmart, one of America's largest music retailers, is finalizing its exciting plans now for its in-store and online destinations for KISS fans surrounding the launch of the new album and tour, and will host various KISS products in addition to their music in its stores this fall. More details on Walmart KISS activity, announcements regarding album pre-sales, sweepstakes and KISS appearances will be shared shortly.

Just curious - is every track of the navel-gazing variety? Oh, hang on. This is KISS we're talking about. Never mind.

Ya know.... You'd think that since Peter and Ace are gone now, and Kiss is looking to move on, they'd take off the makeup again. But... I think Gene wants to keep it on because there's much more merchandising to be had WITH the makeup, versus without it...

Gene out to reap the benefits of merchandising??? Good Lord, man!! And you've heard this where? Preposterous! Let me grab my KISS writing pad, uncap my KISS pen, write a query to Gene, place it in a KISS envelope, slap a KISS postage stamp on it, put on my KISS Army jacket and KISS sneakers, grab my KISS key-chain, head out to the KISSmobile, stop by the local KISS gas station for a few KISS gallons, and then head to the post office. I'm sure when Gene gets back to me, we'll have the truth about this love of merchandising baloney. KISS KISS.

I'm conflicted about this whole thing.

As y'all know, I am/was/continue to be a humongous KISS geek from way back. However, I've also bashed on KISS pretty unmercifully around here over the past coupla years, mostly due to my dislike of their decision to slap the Spaceman and Cat makeup on Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer and tirelessly tour the nostalgia circuit when it seemed that they were well past their sell-by date.

 

However, the fact that they're finally going to RELEASE NEW KISS MUSIC (wotta concept huh?) kinda legitimizes (is that a word?) this lineup for me. At least they're not continuing to whore the same Greatest Hits set list for the umpteenth year in a row.

 

And that new song sample actually sounds pretty damn good.

 

So on one hand, my inner cynical a**hole is going "Meh, screw these guys, they're done," but now he's doing battle with my inner Fanboy who's screaming "WOOT! FIRST DAY BUYER UP IN HERE BOYEEEEEEE!"

 

Which side will win out? Depends on whether I'm anywhere near a Walmart on Oct. 6th I guess....

Doesn't sound too bad. I don't want to get my hopes up like I did for "Psycho Circus"....

    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
