KISStory is the name of the documentary that will portray the story of the legendary rock band KISS, known as “the hottest band on Earth”.
The story of KISS dates back to 1973, when bassist Gene Simmons and guitarist Paul Stanley began creating music together in New York. They were later joined by drummer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley.
KISS was particularly known because its members used exaggerated makeup and extravagant costumes, in addition to each of its musicians adopted a character he used to represent in the live performances of the band. These, in addition, always included elements that distinguished them from the others, such as cannons, pyrotechnics, smoke and even fake blood.

What’s more, KISS It has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide and 25 million in the United States alone. It has also been in the top 40 of the Billboard 200 26 times.
