LICK IT UP is the 11th studio album by Kiss out in 1983. The first with the band members without their trademark make-up.
LICK IT UP built upon the sound of CREATURES OF THE NIGHT. But while Creatures of the Night wasn't a commercial success for Kiss, LICK IT UP sold better. The band went back into the studio after the COTN tour to begin work on their next album, which was recorded over the next two months. "Lick It Up" and "All Hell's Breakin' Loose" were chosen as single
Killing the Dragon is the 9th studio full-lenght by Dio. It was released on May 27th, 2002 via Spitfire Records and was produced directly by Ronnie James Dio.
Dio stated at the time that the "dragon" of the title was "technology". Killing the dragon was the one and only DIO's studio album with Doug Aldrich as guitarist. Craig Goldy, co-wrote some of the songs before leaving the band and before returning for Master of the Moon. #DIO #hardrock #hardnheavy #aldrich #simonwrig
