About this album

Revenge is a studio album by Kiss, released in 1992. It was the band’s first album after the death of long-time drummer Eric Carr in November 1991. His replacement, Eric Singer, had played with Lita Ford, Black Sabbath, Badlands, Brian May, Alice Cooper, and Paul Stanley’s 1989 solo club tour before joining Kiss.

The album was dedicated to Carr, and the last track (“Carr Jam 1981”) was a demo he had recorded soon after joining the group. One modification to the song, however, was the dubbing of Bruce Kulick’s guitar over Ace Frehley’s, which originally appeared. The main riff of the song was used as the basis for the Frehley’s Comet song “Breakout,” found on 1987’s Frehley’s Comet.

For Revenge, Kiss re-established ties with a pair of old associates—producer Bob Ezrin and guitarist/songwriter Vinnie Vincent. Ezrin had last worked with the group on 1981’s ill-fated concept album, Music from “The Elder”. Prior to that, he produced the band’s highly successful Destroyer album in 1976.

Vincent, who in December 1982 had replaced original guitarist Ace Frehley, was fired from Kiss at the conclusion of their Lick It Up tour in March 1984, for reasons that have never been fully explained. Vincent received co-writing credit for three songs on Revenge.

Despite its presence as a single, “God Gave Rock ‘n’ Roll to You II” (a cover version of an Argent song) never charted in the United States, although it reached #4 in the United Kingdom. The song, originally recorded for the soundtrack to Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, appears here in a remixed form and was the last Kiss song to feature a performance by Eric Carr. Carr, too ill to play drums on the song, provided background vocals.

    At the time, this was their best release since the 70s IMO. Hell, it still is!

    Very different from previous work but yet it's just as amazing as the 70s work.

    Great tracks, amazing guitar work by Bruce Kulick ...and the rest of the band firing at full power on all cylinders... This was a great era for KISS albeit after the sad death of Eric Carr.

    KISS at their absolute best. It's a real shame they don't play more songs from it these days.

    This album is epic! Unholy, Domino ,God Gave Rock and Roll To You, Every Time I Look At You and Spit are my faves. I liked their 80's sound but the 70's and this album just seemed...better.

    I can play this album over and over again and never get tired of it all because each member gets to punch or belt out their individual attitude , especially Gene on Domino !

    A harder sound of KISS at the time, I grew up listening to this album. I still love it today, especially 'Unholy'.
