You wanted the best, you got the best! Plus unreleased demos, studio outtakes, alternate versions and more, all on the 45th anniversary deluxe version of KISS’ Destroyer.
If you’re a long time KISS fan like me you’re probably asking yourself… “Do I really need another version of a record I’ve listened to a thousand times in my life and have memorized front to back?” The answer to that is a resounding (Paul Stanley stage voice) “YESSSSS!” for the reasons below. Just take a look at what this set offers…
Destroyer was the first KISS album to sell one million copies in its first year and holds the title of being their all-time best selling studio album.
It’s available in multiple formats including Super Deluxe 4-CD + Blu-ray Audio box set, standard black vinyl, limited edition yellow & red color vinyl, 2-CD set, and digital.
The Super Deluxe Box includes…
- The original album newly remastered at Abbey Road
- 15 demos from Paul Stanley's and Gene Simmons's personal archives, 9 of which are unreleased
- Studio outtakes, alternate versions & mixes, and single edits – most notably a brand-new stripped-down mix for "Beth (Acoustic Mix)"
- An electrifying live show from the band's visit to Paris at the L'Olympia on May 22, 1976
- The entire contents are housed in a lift top style box and features artist Ken Kelly's original Destroyer cover art, arguably one of the most iconic album covers in rock
For the Blu-ray Audio disc, Steven Wilson was brought in to create a first-ever Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround mix of the original studio album plus 2 bonus tracks "Beth (Acoustic Mix)" and "Sweet Pain (Original Guitar Solo)" the latter featuring Ace Frehley's original recorded guitar solo that was not released on the original studio album.
