- In Your Face
[1998 - with Ace Frehley on lead vocals]
While “Weapons” was considered for the 1998 “Psycho
Circus” album, Gene Simmons offered
the song to Ace Frehley to sing. Ace Frehley didn’t like the
lyrics, and rewrote it.
The "Weapons (Power To Raise The Dead)" version features Ace Frehley vocals to the original backing
track (with Eric Singer and Bruce Kulick).
Gene Simmons wanted Ace Frehley to sing the song "In Your Face", Ace Frehley
wasn’t keen on Gene’s lyrics and rewrote them. The version on
“The Vault” is an alternate take, and is not the same version as
the bonus track on the Japanese KISS "Psycho
Circus" album, and the "Non-album
Bonus Track" on various versions of the KISS "We Are One"
