• I behan playing bass, I was amazed by that tapping lick at 2:25 , but it's obvious now that on the record it's a hammon on pull off with a divebomn.
    He has a Flying V in the clip so it creates a great illusion to mimic the audio. xD

  • I was there through the ages
    Chained slaves to their cages
    I have seen you eat your own
    I'm the cycle of pain
    Of a thousand year old reign
    I'm suicide and salvation
    The omen to nations
    That you worship on all fours
    I'm the infection and famine
    That's knocking at your door
    That's why you're feeling so
    Unholy
    Oh, I was created by man, you know I'm
    Unholy
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    I am the incubus,
    I lay the egg in you
    The worm that burrows through your brain
    But you are the beast that calls me by my name
    You send your children to war
    To serve bastards and whores
    So now you know
    You created me on the day that you were born
    Unholy
    I was created by man, yeah I'm the Lord of the Flies, you know I'm
    Unholy
    From the left hand of power comes the father of lies, yeah
    Unholy
    Unholy
    I lay you down to sleep
    Your soul to keep
    Better cross your heart before you die
    And now you know
    Know that you are mine
    That's why you're feeling so
    Unholy
    Unholy
    Unholy
    Unholy

  • Greed has been the nemesis of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. Much of the material KISS wrote and played while not looking for money has been the most incredible in their careers, but all those albums are not best sellers or simply neglected: Kiss I, The Elder, Creatures, Animalize, Revenge, Carnival of Souls. On the other hand, each one of those efforts was followed by a string of poppy cash attempts on the set milestone ending up in downhill disasters: the solo albums, Unmasked, Crazy Nights, Hot in the Shade, Psycho Circus, Sonic Boom, etc. And the cycle started again.

    Of course, I'm not saying all of those albums are crap, there are still great songs in many. But I wish KISS had set themselves on being a hard rock / heavy metal band. They would have had the acceptance they were denied by many and wouldn't be touring as sorry cartoons of their former selves. I still like a good dose of the harder material here and then, it's part of my life.

  • Gene reminds me of Glen Benton here. Would have loved to see a collaboration back then. 🙂

  • I remember when this came out and taping the video. I FREAKED. KISS got dirty and harder again. Wore glitches into my taped off the TV copy. This record still kicks ass. The Demon was back!

  • This was the last legit record they made before firing up the reunion bus which then became the Train of Sadness.

  • Kiss should have kept Vinnie Vincent in the band regardless of how difficult he was to work with…
    Instead of the throw away garbage on Animalize, Asylum, Crazy Nights and Hot In The Shade we could have had five albums of Unholy and Not For The Innocent.
