As black bubblegum institution KISS winds up its farewell tour after a repeatedly groundbreaking career of nearly five decades, Roots digs into the band’s treasure chest of head-banging anthems, hard rock romps, and timeless scorchers. Kiss originals reveal the heavier side of the legendary band, plus tributes by legions of bands for whom Kiss was their first hard rock love, including Death, Hammerfall, Dimebag Darrell, Redd Kross, Amon Amarth, Anthrax, Bathory, Melvins, Entombed, and more. Get your makeup ready, and know your Roots!
Join host Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”/Bazillion Points) for a molten metal outburst of early 1980s tracks that took metal to the brink moments before the birth of thrash metal. Tracks by Riot, Accept, Acid, Venom, Exciter, the Rods, Mercyful Fate, Jag Panzer, Satan, Raven, Anvil, Savatage, Manowar and more. Know your Roots!
