Listen to Death Play Kiss’ “God of Thunder”

Death’s classic 1991 death-metal album Human was reissued yesterday as a deluxe two-CD edition via Relapse. On it, they restored the band’s cover of Gene Simmons’ Kiss classic “God of Thunder,” which originally was a bonus track for Japan only. Check it out below.

    It is actually a Paul Stanley song.

    • Anon Kiss Fan

      No, it’s a Kiss song from the album Destroyer :P Paul Stanley may have wrote it but it is still a Kiss song as it featured in the Kiss album “Destroyer” :P

        Paul sung it first. It’s horrible.  Thank goodness for Gene’s version.

        Paul Stanley wrote God of Thunder.  I’m a huge Kiss fan and Death fan, I don’t really like that version.

        I’m pretty sure what Julian meant was that in the headline it’s reffered to as a Gene Simmons song and while he did sing on it, Paul actually wrote it.

    All they ever did was scream. Ruined Kiss’ best song.

    My roomie just said they’d like to hear ABBA or The Bee Gees do this cover… I think I’m going to cause a re-enactment of the cover to Human. Be back soon… >:-p

  • RJ

    I like it.  A very respectful cover with Chuck’s signature vocal’s, just another reason to buy the reissued disc.
