    Rock And Roll Over


    180g Audiophile Vinyl Reissue


    Remastered To High Definition 192kHz/24-bit Audio For Maximum Fidelity


    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now
    vinyl collectors will get what they've been demanding. All posters, sleeve art, stickers, etc that appeared in the original LP release where applicable have
    been faithfully reproduced for the KISS Army.


    With the massive success of their previous album, the experimental Bob Ezrin-produced Destroyer (which contained the surprise ballad hit Beth), Kiss could have taken the safe route and continued in that direction -- or return to the raw hard rock of their first four albums. They chose the latter. Hooking back up with Eddie Kramer, the producer of their 1975 breakthrough release Alive! and their very first demo, Kiss rented out the Nanuet Star Theater in upstate New York to record their next album, Rock and Roll Over. With a more direct, in-your-face production, Rock and Roll Over is one of Kiss' most consistent records. Two of the album's best tracks became hit singles -- the sleazy hard rocker Calling Dr. Love and an acoustic ballad that was originally intended for Rod Stewart, Hard Luck Woman (later covered by country star Garth Brooks). But like all other classic rock albums, the lesser-known material is often just as strong -- I Want You and Makin' Love became concert staples over the years, while Mr. Speed is one of the most underrated songs in Kiss' catalogue. Also included are the fan favorites Take Me, Ladies Room, Love 'Em and Leave 'Em, and the original version of See You in Your Dreams, which was later re-recorded for Gene Simmons' 1978 solo album.

    Kiss

    Kiss' 1974 self-titled debut is one of hard rock's all-time classic studio recordings. Kiss is chock full of their best and most renowned compositions, containing elements of Rolling Stones/New York Dolls party-hearty rock & roll, Beatles tunefulness, and Sabbath/Zep heavy metal, and wisely recorded primal and raw by producers Richie Wise and Kenny Kerner (of Gladys Knight fame). Main songwriters Stanley and Simmons each had a knack for coming up with killer melodies and riffs, as evidenced by Nothin' to Lose and Deuce (by Simmons), Firehouse and Black Diamond (by Stanley), as well as Strutter and 100,000 Years (collaborations by the two). Also included is the Ace Frehley alcohol anthem Cold Gin, Let Me Know (a song that Stanley played for Simmons upon their very first meeting, then titled Sunday Driver), and one of Kiss' few instrumentals: the groovy Love Theme from Kiss (penned by the entire band). The only weak track is a tacky cover of the 1959 Bobby Rydell hit Kissin' Time, which was added to subsequent pressings of the album to tie in with a Kissing Contest promotion the band was involved in at the time. Along with 1976's Destroyer, Kiss' self-titled debut is their finest studio album, and has only improved over the years.

    Kiss Kiss Kill Kill

    Their third release finds the band perfectly poised between the raw punk energy of their 2004 debut, Hell Yeah, and the brash, singalong pop of 2006's Bring It On. While never dropping their trademark sexy, horror flick flair, Kiss Kiss Kill Kill brings back the rawness and immediacy that's made them the premier touring band in the scene. They just finished two tours with the Dropkick Murphys and a tour with Danzig, have shared the stage with the likes of Rancid and The Offspring, and have been on several Warped Tour runs. RIYL: Nekromantix, Rev. Horton Heat, Siouxsie And The Banshees, X, Stray Cats, surf, punk, ska, and good ol' rock 'n' roll.

    Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc

    Nikki Sudden's collaboration with former Birthday
    Party guitarist Rowland S. Howard peaked with Kiss You
    Kidnapped Charabanc, the duo's 1987 first and only full
    length. Howard's sinister guitar flourishes and malevolent
    lyrical motifs lead Sudden's paisley-clad disposition into
    murkier waters, drudging the same sludge inhabited by
    The Gun Club and Nick Cave's Bad Seeds. Unhinged slide
    guitars, noise and primal drumming draw up demented
    pacts forged in the blood of Southern Gothic swamp
    stomp and Depression-era devotionals-tales of lovers and
    demons split between the vocal transmissions of the two
    minds behind this goth-steeped, blues-punk essential.


    In founding Swell Maps, the post-punk prefacing
    Birmingham art-snots, Nikki Sudden and his drumming
    brother Epic Soundtracks charted new territory for racket
    and corrosive guitar. But after folding Swell Maps at the
    dawn of the '80s, Nikki Sudden plowed through another
    decade's worth of terrifically fertile ground. Drawing on
    his devotion to the Rolling Stones and T. Rex-alongside
    guitarist Dave Kusworth as Jacobites, plus a cheekily named
    cohort of British sidemen-Nikki Sudden cut a string of
    raw, inspired rock 'n' roll records, etched with double-edged travel melancholia and hard-bitten punk dejection.

    Rock 'N Soul Part I On Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP From Mobile Fidelity


    The Definitive Hall and Oates Greatest-Hits Compilation: Rock 'n Soul Part I Loaded With Nine Top 10 Singles, Including Kiss On My List and Private Eyes


    Mastered From the Original Master Tapes and Pressed On 180 Gram LP At RTI


    All The Signature Songs From The 1970s And 80s Are Here, From Sara Smile And She's Gone To Maneater


    Other compilations have longer track lists and go farther back into their career, but no Hall and Oates greatest-hits collection surpasses Rock 'n Soul Part I. Originally released at the height of the duo's career in fall 1983, the 12-song set functions as a time machine back into an era when Daryl Hall and John Oates dominated the charts with songs that have long since become standards. While a majority of the anthology draws from the group's trio of mammoth RCA albums spanning 1980 through 1982, it also includes the pair's only three Top 10 smashes from the 1970s: Sara Smile, She's Gone, and the chart-topping Rich Girl. One-stop shopping for the absolute best of Hall and Oates doesn't come any easier.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's analog reissue presents nine Top 10 Hall and Oates singles with awe-inspiring detail and palpable realism. Lifelike tones grace the array of guitars, pianos, basses, and voices placed against synthesized backdrops. Each member's singing claims enhanced intimacy and balance. The collective harmonies sound sharper, the dynamics richer, and the soundstages wider and deeper. While the tandem's peers often relied on robotic mechanisms and now-dated keyboard devices, Hall and Oates wisely merge the period's savvy styles with tried-and-true soulful instrumentation.


    Indeed, with one listen to this definitive-sounding version of Rock 'n Soul Part I, and you'll understand why the duo's music not only ruled radio and record stores in the Reagan era but also continues to be referenced by influential artists today. You already likely know every song - or nearly every one of them - here by heart. Arriving upon a near-flawless fusion of dance grooves, soft rock rhythms, smooth vocals, romantic sentiments, catchy beats, and spotless hooks with #1 singles such as Kiss On My List and Private Eyes, the collaborators simultaneously crossed over into multiple markets and eradicated boundaries.


    All the trademarks - swinging verse structures, call-and-response choruses, stick-in-your-head bridges, sleek keyboard layers, doo-wop fills, and, in some places, reggae-nodding accents or cool saxophone lines to stir up the mood and atmosphere - that make the duo's music irresistible pulse throughout Rock 'n Soul Part I. Eight of the singles included here cracked the Top 5. They remain prototype intersections of blue-eyed soul, edge new wave, and dance, blueprints for pop mastery that catapulted Hall and Oates to becoming the most successful duo in rock history.


    Hear the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees' standard-setting equilibrium between polish, melody, muscle, and craft on their signature hits like never before.

    Kiss: MTV Unplugged

    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl
    starting in 2014. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now
    vinyl collectors will get what they've been demanding. All posters, sleeve art, stickers, etc that appeared in the original LP release where applicable have
    been faithfully reproduced for the KISS Army.


    On April 10, KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - which will be broadcast in May -
    and then will kick off a summer co-headlining tour with Def Leppard starting in June.


    After sinking deep into this musical celebration, even the not-so-avid listener will surely know something more about Kiss, a classic rock icon of the '70s roaring back in vibrant and passionate form. This recording of a session done expressly for the program MTV Unplugged in 1996 brought together a special group for a remarkable, if unexpected, reunion. Throughout this record, you can feel the support and raw adoration of the audience present, certainly a mixture of long-time fans and new admirers. The members of Kiss got together to rock hard on their axes and crash big on the drums, bringing a renewed sense of freshness and excitement. Nearly rock & roll legends, they exceeded expectations and, given their newfound energy, charisma, and love for the music, their performance provided the catalyst for the beginning of a successful world reunion tour. Coming Home delivers a feverish and electric opening that gets the crowd on its feet in a hurry. Soon the emotion and presence of this group are brought back with startling grace and wisdom on Plaster Caster, and the beautiful acoustic medley Goin' Blind. The decades of Kiss, their costumes, and their wild stadium shows roll back in a heartbeat through the crashing tune Do You Love Me. Perhaps one of the most bewildering tunes that really reflects the image of Kiss is the rocking blues tune Domino. The crowd is really fired up now, next experiencing the charming and soulful power rock ballad Sure Know Something. A World Without Heroes is very subdued and reflective. Rock Bottom is delicate and mysterious in the opening seconds, with a lush minor harmony delivered picking style on the acoustic. Now it gets rough, expresses Stanley, grooving in a racy blues statement. See You Tonight is a romantic and pretty ballad delivered with sweetness, and the group sings, I'll see you tonight/And if I can't, I'll cry, I'll cry/I see you tonight, outside. Then on comes the darker resonance of the band with I Still Love You, expressing grave longing after a grueling breakup. I got to make you see, is a gripping line in a haunting bridge section, before the shouted, emotional, sometimes painful chorus: Girl, it seems the price I have of losing you/Will be my hell to pay/It makes me want to die/'Cause I still love you. The solo during the bridge is reminiscent of the chord structure of the Guess Who's Undun. After this painful, depressing song, new breath is found with Every Time I Look at You, a song of forgiveness, delivered with sincerity and the feeling of hope: Every time I hold you/The things I never told you seem to come easily/'Cause you're everything to me. The bridge is brilliant and seems to elevate the melody to a gratifying level, before breaking into a chilling guitar improv, layered over with a shimmering string orchestra. Beth is the most heartwarming song of Kiss' power ballads: Beth I know you're lonely/And I hope you'll be alright/'Cause me and the boys will be playing all night. Finally, a Kiss show wouldn't be complete without the ultimate party song, Rock and Roll All Night, a tune still electric without electric guitars.

    Love Gun was Kiss' fifth studio album in three years (and seventh release overall, peaking at number four on Billboard), and proved to be the last release that the original lineup played on. By 1977, Kiss merchandise was flooding the marketplace (lunch boxes, makeup kits, comic books, etc.), and it would ultimately lead to a Kiss backlash in the '80s. But the band was still focused on their music for Love Gun, similar in sound and approach to Rock and Roll Over, their previous straight-ahead rock release. It included Ace Frehley's lead vocals on Shock Me, as well as one of Kiss' best and most renowned hard rockers in the thunderous title track. The album's opener, I Stole Your Love, also served as the opening number on Kiss' ensuing tour, while Christine Sixteen is one of the few Kiss tracks to contain piano prominently. Almost Human is an underrated rocker and features a great Jimi Hendrix-esque guitar solo from Frehley (no doubt due to ex-Hendrix producer Eddie Kramer manning the boards again), while Plaster Caster is a tribute to the famous groupies of the same name.

    Alive II


    180g Audiophile Vinyl Reissue


    Remastered To High Definition 192kHz/24-bit Audio For Maximum Fidelity


    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now

    For Kiss' breakthrough 1975 release Alive!, the band had a total of three studio albums from which to select their in-concert repertoire. By mid-1977, Kiss had released another three studio recordings (Destroyer, Rock and Roll Over, and Love Gun), and with a new Kiss album needed for the holiday season, a second live album, Alive II, was assembled. Three sides were recorded live in concert at the Los Angeles Forum (with a few tracks recorded in Japan), while the fourth side featured five new studio recordings. Like its predecessor, there's been quite a lot of speculation concerning extensive overdubbing (the proof being that you can often hear several Paul Stanley voices singing backup simultaneously!), but Alive II shows that Kiss was still an exciting live band despite all the hype. Adrenaline-charged versions of Detroit Rock City, Love Gun, Calling Dr. Love, Shock Me, God of Thunder, I Want You, and Shout It Out Loud are all highlights. On the fourth side, Ace Frehley only plays on a single song (his self-penned classic Rocket Ride) for reasons unknown, while session guitarist Bob Kulick filled in for the AWOL Frehley. Among the studio tracks is the made-for-the-stage anthem Larger Than Life, which the band surprisingly never performed live.

    Alive!

    Ranked 159/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Alive! was the album that catapulted Kiss from cult attraction to mega-superstars. It was their first Top Ten album, remaining on the charts for 110 weeks and eventually going quadruple platinum. Culled from shows in Detroit, New Jersey, Iowa, and Cleveland on the Dressed to Kill tour, the record features producer Eddie Kramer doing a masterful job of capturing the band's live performance on record. The band's youthful energy is contagious, and with positively electric versions of their best early material, it's no mystery why Alive! is widely regarded as one of the greatest live hard rock recordings of all time. Rock and Roll All Nite became a Top 20 smash and was the main reason for the album's success, but there are many other tracks that are just as strong -- Deuce, Strutter, Firehouse, Parasite, She, 100,000 Years, Black Diamond, and Cold Gin all shine in a live setting. Although there's been some speculation of extensive overdubbing to correct mistakes, Alive! remains Kiss' greatest album ever. An essential addition to any rock collection.

    Psycho Circus

    Reunited, and it rocks so good. The first album by KISS' original members in two decades sounds like it was recorded two decades ago--thank god: The choruses are so headbangingly huge and the guitars so overdubbed into excess you'd think they recorded the album in their makeup. This is rock with a capital R, captured in all its cheesy glory (who else would record a song called I Pledge Allegiance (to the State of Rock & Roll)?). This new effort proves that in the circus of hard-rock dinosaurs, KISS remain its Barnum & Bailey. A-

    Creatures Of The Night

    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl
    starting in 2014. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now

    By 1982's Creatures of the Night, Kiss had finally ditched their plans of becoming respectable artists (starting with 1979's Dynasty) and had come to the realization that they were a loud, no-holds-barred heavy metal band. Easily their best since 1977's Love Gun, Creatures of the Night contains very little filler and sounds as if Kiss had been reborn (it also includes one of the heaviest drum sounds ever captured in the studio by any rock band). The band is inspired and enthusiastic throughout, especially on such rockers as the opening title track, Killer, War Machine, Saint and Sinner, and one of their great anthems, I Love It Loud. Also included is one of Kiss' better ballads, I Still Love You (later featured on 1996's Unplugged set), as well as Rock and Roll Hell, a song written about Ace Frehley, who would soon officially make his resignation from the band public. Guitarist Vinnie Vincent (real name: Vinnie Cusano) handles guitar duties here and was eventually named as Frehley's replacement, playing on the ensuing tour. Although Creatures of the Night deserved to be the album that put Kiss back on top of the charts, it performed below expectations (topping out at number 45), as did its tour. Hence, the album is one of Kiss' most underrated. It didn't take a genius to figure out that the makeup had grown stale and was now getting in the way of their music. The time had finally come for the band to unmask.

    Dressed To Kill

    By the release of their third album, 1975's Dressed to Kill, Kiss were fast becoming America's top rock concert attraction, yet their record sales up to this point did not reflect their ticket sales. Casablanca label head Neil Bogart decided to take matters into his own hands, and produced the new record along with the band. The result is more vibrant sounding than its predecessor, 1974's sludgefest Hotter Than Hell, and the songs have more of an obvious pop edge to them. The best-known song on the album by far is the party anthem Rock and Roll All Nite, but it was the track C'Mon and Love Me that became a regional hit in the Detroit area, giving the band their first taste of radio success. Since the band was on the road for a year straight, songs such as Room Service and Ladies in Waiting dealt with life on the road (i.e., groupies), and a pair of songs were reworked from Kiss' precursor band, Wicked Lester (Love Her All I Can and She). With Dressed to Kill's Top 40 showing on the Billboard charts, the stage was now set for Kiss' big commercial breakthrough with their next release.

    Hotter Than Hell

    Although Kiss' self-titled debut performed respectably on the charts, it was not the blockbuster they had hoped for. With the album fading on the charts in the summer of 1974, Kiss was summoned back into the studio to work on a follow-up. Producers Richie Wise and Kenny Kerner were onboard again, and even though the sonics are muddier (and more filler is present in the compositions), Hotter Than Hell is another quintessential Kiss release. Many of the songs have been forgotten over the years (few have been featured in concert after the '70s), but there are still more than a few gems to be found. It's unclear if the members of Kiss were having problems with their personal relationships at the time, but it's a common thread that runs through the songs. The plodding Got to Choose and the rapid-fire Parasite deal with love gone bad; the title track is about unobtainable love, while Goin' Blind is a disturbing tale of a 93-year-old having an affair with a 16-year-old. Also included are the early favorites Let Me Go, Rock 'n' Roll and Watchin' You, as well as the original electric version of Comin' Home (an acoustic version was the opener of 1996's MTV Unplugged) and Strange Ways, which contains one of Ace Frehley's best guitar solos. Even though Hotter Than Hell actually fared worse on the charts than the debut, it has become a revered album among Kiss fans over the years -- and rightfully so.

    Monster

    Monster represents KISS' nod to the music that first inspired them to pick up their guitars and flamethrowers and don makeup to entertain millions. The group goes back to their own beginnings with the Who-like "Freak," while Gene lives up to the title track's declaration on the raucous prehistoric punk rock of "Back to the Stone Age" and the bludgeoning, self-referential "The Devil is Me." "Take Me Down Below" is one of KISS' classic sexual double entendres in the mode of "Love Gun" or "Lick It Up." Guitarist Thayer takes a solo turn on his own with "Outta This World," a tribute to his KISS "spaceman" character, while drummer Singer provides the vocals (and the inspiration) for the Stanley-penned arena anthem "All for the Love of Rock & Roll."

    Destroyer

    Ranked 496/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The pressure was on Kiss for their fifth release, and the band knew it. Their breakthrough, Alive!, was going to be hard to top, so instead of trying to recreate a concert setting in the studio, they went the opposite route. Destroyer is one of Kiss' most experimental studio albums, but also one of their strongest and most interesting. Alice Cooper/Pink Floyd producer Bob Ezrin was on hand, and he strongly encouraged the band to experiment -- there's extensive use of sound effects (the album's untitled closing track), the appearance of a boy's choir (Great Expectations), and an orchestra-laden, heartfelt ballad (Beth). But there's plenty of Kiss' heavy thunder rock to go around, such as the demonic God of Thunder and the sing-along anthems Flaming Youth, Shout It Out Loud, King of the Night Time World, and Detroit Rock City (the latter a tale of a doomed concert-goer, complete with violent car-crash sound effects). But it was the aforementioned Peter Criss ballad, Beth, that made Destroyer such a success; the song was a surprise Top Ten hit (it was originally released as a B-side to Detroit Rock City). Also included is a song that Nirvana would later cover (Do You Love Me?), as well as an ode to the pleasures of S&M, Sweet Pain. Destroyer also marked the first time that a comic-book illustration of the band appeared on the cover, confirming that the band was transforming from hard rockers to superheroes.

    Destroyer: Resurrected

    Ranked 496/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    This album has received recognition many years later.

    In 1989, Kerrang! magazine listed the album at #36 among the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time.

    In 2006, it was placed at #60 on Guitar World magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time.

    The album was also featured in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.


    This is KISS's 1976 multi-platinum, landmark album Destroyer: Resurrected, newly remixed from the original master tapes by the album's original producer, Bob Ezrin. Ezrin pulled the tapes from the vaults and painstakingly remixed the entire album, enhancing the sound and bringing out its rich texture and vibrancy, while keeping the integrity of the original recording intact. Destroyer: Resurrected will also include rare and unreleased recordings rediscovered during the remixing process, plus the originally intended cover artwork.


    Hot on the heels of their breakthrough hit album Alive!, KISS released their fourth studio album Destroyer which is considered the most ambitious studio recording of KISS's '70s catalog. Bob Ezrin, who had previously worked with Alice Cooper, was brought in to produce the album and among the production flourishes Ezrin introduced to KISS were sound effects, strings, a children's choir, reversed drumming and the eerie, echoing sounds of screaming children over Gene Simmons' vocals on "God of Thunder." Upon its release, Destroyer reached the No. 11 position on the Billboard Top 200 and, with the help of the surprise top-10 hit "Beth," was their first album to go platinum.


    Originally released as the B-side to the single "Detroit Rock City," "Beth,"-the heart-yearning ballad co-written and performed by drummer Peter Criss-was quickly picked up by radio nationwide and became the first top 10 for KISS, climbing all the way to the No. 7 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While going through the original tapes, a forgotten vocal piece that was originally edited out in the final mix of "Beth" was discovered and now, for the first time, the complete original vocal recording has been restored and is included in the final mix. Other rediscovered gems include a complete, alternate guitar solo for the track "Sweet Pain," now heard for the first time since it was originally recorded. The newly remixed "Sweet Pain" with the original guitar solo will be included as a bonus track. In addition to the treasures found buried in the hours of recordings, KISS classics such as "Detroit Rock City," "Shout It Out Loud," "Do You Love Me?" and "God of Thunder" were painstakingly remixed by Ezrin as he fleshed out the drums and guitars, bringing out the bottom end to the bass, making his mixes tight and tough.


    In addition, Destroyer: Resurrected will now be issued with the originally intended cover art thought too controversial for the time. Created by artist Ken Kelly, the "brown" cover depicts KISS dressed in their ALIVE! costumes and standing on rubble in front of a burning city in ruins. At the time, the record company thought it was too violent and settled for the tamer "blue" version known today. This release also marked the first time that a comic-book illustration of the band appeared on the cover, confirming that the band was transforming from hard rockers to superheroes.

    On the heels of the historic KISS Reunion Tours
    (spanning 400+ show from 1996 to thru 2001) Ace
    Frehley began laboring over the material that would
    culminate in the 2009 release of "Anomaly" - the
    highest charting Frehley solo album since his selftitled
    debut in 1978 (which featured the only Top 20
    KISS solo hit with "New York Groove)."


    Frehley is also the only member to vibrantly maintain a solo career, having recently renewed
    with eOne Music for what will be his 9th and 10th solo album in the coming years.


    As for the project at hand, as ALLMUSIC.com put it: ''ANOMALY' surprised even
    longtime supporters with its forceful, confident performances and sharp songwriting."
    Not to mention it's #27 debut on the Billboard Top 200, debut in the U.S.


    Since then Ace Frehley went on to release the first ever Top 10 Billboard 200 debut
    of any Kiss related solo album with "Space Invader" in 2014, the same year he was
    inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


    Out of print since 2010, "ANOMALY Deluxe" returns to fill a major void in the Frehley

    Today!

    Ranked 270/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The 1965 album Today! was the Beach Boys' eighth studio album and the first of three to be released that year. The album marked a major turning point for the band, and especially the exhausted Brian Wilson. It was around this time where Wilson gave up touring, and many consider this the beginning of his artistic maturation. The album features a fine mix of upbeat numbers like Do You Wanna Dance and Help Me Rhonda and ballads such as Please Let Me Wonder and Kiss Me, Baby. Aside from their opus Pet Sounds, Today! is the Beach Boys' most highly acclaimed release.


    All 'From The Capitol Vaults' titles feature carefully replicated artwork and packaging true to their original single or gatefold jacket LP releases.

    Rip This


    A perfect form of release - it heaps up mounds of
    high tension, but in the most cathartic and enjoyable
    possible way. - NPR


    A punk-fired garage tinkerer handy with all the tools
    one needs to jury-rig some tasty rock nuggets - SPIN
    Original Rock n' Roll Swagger at its finest - Hypetrak


    A pungent, effective collision of garage rock- bashing
    and Ramones sneer
    - NY Times


    When Bass Drum of Death started touring the rock club circuit
    outside Oxford, Mississippi, several years ago, there was a legitimate
    concern that the band's appeal might be limited to fans of the
    garage scene. With a seemingly never-ending series of tour dates,
    BDoD nonetheless transformed rooms full of normally
    too-cool-to-rock indie crowds into a mob of sweaty, stage-diving
    maniacs. Meanwhile, Madison Avenue, eager to cash in on hip
    cachet, took notice. Since the release of 2011's GB City, "Get Found"
    has been featured in FOX promos for the NASCAR season. Rockstar
    Games' megaseller Grand Theft Auto V helped to promote last
    year's self-titled album. Gamers terrorized the freeways of Los
    Santos, living out their cops-and-robbers fantasies, as "Crawling
    After You" blasted through their car stereo speakers. Bass Drum of
    Death are teetering on the brink of reaching a mainstream audience,
    and Rip This is their attempt to record an unapologetic rock album
    for people outside their normal fan base.


    In the past, BDoD brainchild John Barrett wrote and recorded all the
    material and toured with a revolving lineup of hired guns on drums
    and guitar. This time around, drummer Len Clark joins Barrett as a
    full-time member and collaborator. The duo began discussing plans
    for a new record when touring with Unknown Mortal Orchestra in
    2013. Barrett and Clark then convinced UMO bassist Jacob Portrait
    to take on the role of producer when the band booked a session in
    March at Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma County, California. With a
    few rough demos, Barrett, Clark, and Portrait hunkered down for two
    weeks and cranked out the band's first proper studio album. Rip This
    retains BDoD's trademark sorry-for-partyin' swagger while
    scrapping the crackling hiss and lo-fi fuzz. The result is an record
    that still relies on an obliterating attack of heavy guitars, danceable
    hooks, and kinetic drumming, but will appeal as much to KISS fans
    as the music freaks and geeks who worship Nuggets. Both a
    challenge to music critics and a rock call-to-arms, the title says it all.
    You're not going to hear many records this year that rip like this, so
    shotgun a beer, tune in, and turn up.
