What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 44 - Off the Rails Month, Part I - KISS - Music from The Elder

August 6th, 2016

Join us as Iron-Cast brings you the first part of a new month-long theme.This time it's "Off the Rails Month", where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field. And we're kicking this month off with a doozy, delving into KISS' "Music from 'The Elder'". Bringing back Bob Ezrin, the same producer who did "Destroyer" and who had just finished Pink Floyd's "The Wall", "Music from 'The Elder'" was supposed to be the concept album that would catapult KISS the same way "The Wall" did for Pink Floyd.... but that was not to be, as fans slagged the album and it is still one of the lowest-selling KISS albums ever. But what about this album? Did it push KISS into a bold new musical direction, or did it push crap in a new and scary direction? Tune in to find out.
