I don’t like KISS, okay? They just never did it for me for some reason. Much like choosing Megadeth over Metallica and Priest over Maiden, my general “meh” towards all things KISS will not win me any fans/new followers. HOWEVER!

2020 has a lot going for it already with a slew of stellar albums dropping right at the start AND a year where Ozzy will release new material is a feat in itself. Also on the horizon beyond what we’ve listed below is a new beast from Rawk Gods Aeges (Review coming soon), more maniacal mayhem from Dog Fashion Disco, Megadeth’s triumphant return, and the original members of Static X reuniting to bring the late Wayne Static’s final recordings to light as a whole new full-length due this May.

It’s just how I’m wired! That said, I respect the band and what they do. And even I can admit that “Number of the Beast” is a goddamn infectious metal anthem, although “Run to the Hills” still drives me bonkers. [Read more…]
Who knew Chris Jericho could rawk this well? I guess a lot of you did! [Read more…]
