KISS Destroyer Album | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/13/13
The Destroyer album was released on March 15 1976, NOT july 1 1976 like you posted. Probably should know considering you have a dedicated web page for it. They released Rock and Roll Over in Nov 11 1976 so that only gave them 4 months to write record an tour both europe an the us. March 15 1976 is the correct release of KISS Destroyer. Good Luck to you
DESTROYER REVIEW | Reviewer: chuck case | 9/8/11
Contrary to popular belief Destroyer was not an immediate success.Like "THE ELDER" fans were taken aback by its' glossy production by Bob Ezrin who added strings,a choir & sound effects to the KISS sound.This was only the fifth LP for them,& their fourth studio album.The previous 3 (KISS,HOTTER THAN HELL & DRESSED TO KILL)all sound very raw compared to DESTROYER.Detroit Rock City starts off the album & would soon replace DUECE as their concert opener.A true classic written by Paul Stanley & Ezrin,it's loud,bombastic & as the song ends in a fiery car crash it doesn't fade out.Instead Ace Frehley's guitar starts blaring softly & as it gets louder,& Peter Criss smashes the drums we are treated to Paul's excellent "King of The Night Time World".Gene Simmons sings "God Of Thunder".A song,written & originally recorded by Paul,Gene makes this song his own sounding demonic & rather ominous as he threatens to "rob you of your virgin soul"!!!"Great Expectations" is next.A ballad sung by Gene about a female fan who longs to be with her idol(Gene,naturally).It's ok though I could do without the choir."Flaming Youth" sung by Paul is pretty cool although it sounds like Paul is trying too hard for his own "Rock & Roll All Nite".Gene's "Sweet Pain" is great but the solo is too short.Alice Cooper's guitarist,Dick Wagner plays it.Why have him for such a short solo.They might as well have Paul play it since Ace wasn't around.Speaking of Ace,I wish he sang a song on this album.I think it would be cool to hear Ace with his cool delivery on a production like this."shout It Out Loud" should be the last song on the LP.My reason? Let them record that classic live-in-studio with no Ezrin production! A classic nonetheless as is Peter's "Beth" & Paul's ultra-cool "Do You Love Me".My rating 9
