The Kiss Army can look forward to a brand-new studio album, entitled 'Monster' and promising to pack a nasty bite, from their favorite facepainted rockers on Oct. 16.

The single 'Hell or Hallelujah' has already been released to positive reviews, and in a recent interview with Reuters, singer/producer Paul Stanley -- aka "the Starchild" -- thinks fans are in for a big treat: "It's heart is beating. I truly believe it's far beyond being a Kiss album. It's a great album of its genre with all the elements of all the classic bands that I listened to."
