KISS have officially begun recording their follow up to Sonic Boom.  Footage of day two of recording has popped up online.According to the band, this album is going to leave Sonic Boom in the dust.  No ballads, just straight ahead rock n roll.   The band is even doing everything themselves.

...no outside writers, just the band doing what it did on the first three records — writing the songs ourselves

-Gene Simmons

Simmons also said that they have about 25 songs written so obviously they won't have room for all the songs on this new album.  I can't wait to get a sneak peak.  I love KISS, and even though they are getting old they are still the same fun band.  Maybe a bit more business save, but still just like to rip it up on stage.
