KISS is back

5 Oct

Next Wednesday (2012 October 12th), the new KISS album “Monster” will be released in Japan.

Album cover of KISS “Monster”

The track listing is:
Hell Or Hallelujah
Wall Of Sound
Back To The Stone Age
Shout Mercy
Long Way Down
Eat Your Heart Out
The Devil Is Me
Outta This World
All For The Love Of Rock & Roll
Take Me Down Below
Last Chance
Right Here Right Now

The Japanese version of the album will include a bonus track (as many Japanese pressings of albums do), which will be the live version of ‘King Of The Nighttime World‘.

The video for the single ‘Hell Or Hallelujah‘ is here:

And the November 2012 issue of the Japanese heavy metal magazine called “Burrn!” went on sale today and Paul Stanley of KISS is on the cover.

Also…the iconic Japanese character Hello Kitty teamed up with KISS and a huge variety of products showing Hello Kitty‘s face painted in KISS make-up is now available in Japan.

Anyways, please take my poll and also leave a comment to tell me what you think of the rock band KISS and whether or not you’ll buy their new album:

      Thanks for voting in my poll.

      You didn’t know that “Hello Kitty” is Japanese? The character is commonly called “Kitty-chan” here.

      Do your daughters like Hello Kitty?

        Yes they do. Apparently, Hello Kitty is popular with girls of all ages. From grammar school to college, Hello Kitty is a “fashion” over here.

        After I pause to think about it, Hello Kitty is on just about everything! A marketing storm blitz; one that reminds me of what KISS has accomplished! LOL!

        Kitty-chan is on all kinds of things here too. I bet there is a wider variety of things with that cat’s image on it here than there.
