Kiss is the debut studio album by American rock band Kiss, released on February 8, 1974. Much of the material on the album was written by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, as members of their pre-Kiss band Wicked Lester. Simmons estimated that the entire process of recording and mixing took three weeks, while co-producer Richie Wise has stated it took just 13 days.
I Love It Loud 04:16 02. Danger 03:55. Kiss were half-heavy metal band, half-circus act in their heyday, a time known as their golden age amongst fans, the make-up era to the rest the world, or 1974-1982 if you’re being generous by a couple years on either end. Those happen to be the years the group were signed to Neil Bogart’s label Casablanca Records, a successful ’70s hype- machine that found success at the far ends of the pop spectrum with comic book heavy metal (Kiss) and disco (the Village People, Donna Summer, Irene Cara, and a truckload of producer-based acts).
Complete your Kiss collection. It would be great if somebody can submit the European CD box, if it does indeed exist.
The band's eponymous debut album was released in 1974. The album did not have a hit single and rose only as high as 87 on Billboard, despite significant touring and promotion. The follow-up album, Hotter Than Hell (1974), was a bigger disappointment, peaking at 100 and quickly dropping off the charts. The album initially charted at on the Billboard 200, and quickly reached Gold status in the US. 1997's Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions was released after the reunion tour and did not receive much promotion. It has yet to be certified Gold in the US despite the album's lone single "Jungle" reaching number 8 on the US Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. Followed by a highly successful reunion, in 1998 Psycho Circus was released and was a moderate success.
