KISS Album Gladiator Showdown – Carnival of Souls vs. Music from ‘The Elder’

The first podcast of 2023!!

With the new year comes a new name. We had to close down the Devereaux Diaries asylum due to budget cuts, and the inmates kept peeing on the walls and stuff. So now, we are Asylum: The KISS Podcast.

Also, it was time for a new feature. The Kousins have done album showdowns before. But, in some instances, that just doesn’t seem fair to some of the songs on the two albums.

So, Kousin Gary put his #1 (on his ranking list), Carnival of Souls, against Kousin Tim’s #1, Music from ‘The Elder.’ What makes this cool is that these two albums are the biggest outliers in the whole KISS Katalog. They both come with asterisks (*) as they have no companions. And for the newbies, as Roadie Ray said, yes, Kousins Gary and Tim are serious; these are really their #1s.

The difference here is: after a coin flip, the winner gets to either go first or defer their pick. The first picker chooses their “gladiator” or song for battle. After a short listen, the opposing picker chooses the song (or gladiator) to battle the round’s opening song. The other two Kousins then vote for the winner. The two pickers can change their vote if they choose to, as well. Whichever song has the most votes wins. If there’s a tie, it goes to Twitter for tiebreaker votes. If that doesn’t make sense, just give a listen, and it will become as clear as mud.

The Kousins gave their now listenings. A response from The Huge to The Euge in their own battle arena. Mailbag from Rob from Right Between the Eyes Podcast.
