Today In KISStory - February 18, 1974: KISS release their self-titled debut album.

When it was released, KISS had been a band for a little over a year. Much of the material on the album was written by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley as members of their pre-KISS band Wicked Lester. Simmons estimated that the entire process of recording and mixing took three weeks, while co-producer Richie Wise has stated it took just 13 days.

KISS sold approximately 75,000 copies after its initial release, without the presence of a hit single. It was certified Gold on June 8, 1977, having shipped 500,000 copies.
