Remastered re-release of the seventh full-length studio album by legendary American Horror/Glam/Disco/Hard Rock band.
It was the first time that the four original members of KISS did not all appear together for the entire album. In later interviews, the band admitted they started listening to outsiders about what direction the music should go in around the time of "Dynasty". Stanley's "I Was Made for Lovin' You" was an attempt to cash in on the popularity of Disco music. It was one of the band's most successful singles, peaking at #11 on the American singles chart. "I Was Made for Lovin' You" was KISS' first songwriting collaboration with Desmond Child, who showed up later on "Animalize", "Asylum", "Crazy Nights", "Smashes, Thrashes & Hits" and "Hot In The Shade". Frehley said in various interviews that KISS was becoming a youth-oriented band with children attending their concerts with parents.
"Dynasty" restored the band to commercial prominence, reaching #9 on the US Billboard album chart. It was certified Platinum in USA, Netherlads and double-Platinum in Canada. It was the last high-charting album by KISS for several years.
KISS is one of the best-selling bands of all the time, having sold more than 75 000 000 records worldwide, including 25 000 000 RIAA-certified albums.
KISS also holds the title as America's #1 Gold record award-winning band of all time, having earned 30 Gold albums. Band has 14 Platinum albums, with three albums being multi-Platinum.
On April 10, 2014, the four original members of KISS were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
KISS was ranked by MTV as the ninth "Greatest Metal Band of All Time", and placed tenth on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list, as well as being ranked as the third "Best Metal and Hard Rock Live Band of All Time" by Loudwire.
"Dynasty" was re-released in 1997 in a remastered version.
