Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 489/500!
KISS celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the release of their 1974 albums, KISS (debut album) & Hotter Than Hell, with re-mastered reissues on 180g Vinyl!
Destroyer, released in 1976, is one of Kiss' most experimental studio albums, but also one of their strongest and most interesting. The album was certified gold by the RIAA on April 22, 1976. The album features "Detroit Rock City" and the ever popular rock ballad "Beth".
The cover art for Destroyer was painted by fantasy artist Ken Kelly. His original version of the album cover was rejected by the record company due to the fact that they felt the scene was too violent looking with the rubble and flames. The original version also showed the members wearing the Alive! costumes.
Kerrang! magazine, in 1989, listed the album at #36 among the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Album of All Time. In 2003, it was ranked #489 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
