Klassik ’78 release lyric video for “Hot On Her Heels”
Klassik ’78, who seemingly create better KISS era ’70s songs than the current KISS formation, have released a lyric video for their song “Hot On Their Heels” from their Side Two EP.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Klassik ’78‘s Side One and Side Two EPs:
“Moving on to Side Two is a totally different experience. The songwriting is far more creative, while the production is of higher quality. I’m told by Tom that the drum tracks, for example, were using eight mics on this album, as opposed to three on the previous Side One. The first song “Ain’t No Fool” captures a true KISS sound, as does “American Made.” What is interesting to me is that Klassik uses the KISS model to create songs that actually stand up to modern tastes in pure guitar rock. This really exposes itself in the guitar line for “Hot On Her Heels”… a little faster beat and it could be Crashdïet or Hell In The Club. “Jendell” has a tad of Husker Du in it, with floating riffs but a focused vocal line.
So many of the people I’ve talked to can’t get over how much this band sounds like KISS. What fascinates me is that Klassik ’78 has tried to interpret what KISS might sound like today, if that band had stayed true to their 1970’s sound. Tom has dedicated the two albums to Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter. I think they have done an excellent job. Get into this if you’re a KISS fan. The actual KISS could not do better these days.”
