It's been a great week in the recording studio working on the brand new KISS album. It truly sounds amazing and the new songs are kicking my ass. We cut basic tracks for a bunch of songs together as a unit in the studio for two or three days. We all agreed that we've never got tracks that sound this good before.
Yesterday, I took a shot at a few guitar solos. Paul's producing and doing a superb job steering the ship. Stay tuned for more updates soon...
