KISS - The Oath

I can't believe it's taken me this long to post an actual KISS video. well, sort of. we did have a cover by The Donnas. this is a live performance from the TV show Fridays. pretty much the only live stuff from the cool album "The Elder" out there, as they didn't tour for it. last I heard this record was the only KISS album to never make it to platinum status. sad, as it's quite good.

this version has an extended solo, which is sadly missing from the album. the band's costumes are unusual, as they kind of went for a more "modern" look. styles come and go in waves, and in 1981, with the "new music" hitting KISS was started to be considered passe by some people. recording a concept album... that was one odd decision. they had thoughts of making it into a movie, but the poor sales slammed the door on that.
