METAL INSIDER CALLS OUT KISS FOR STEALING FROM THE SWORD

760

I love Metal Insider‘s Bram Teitelman so much right now I could kiss him on his Quaker Jewish mouth right now (And no, I’m not kidding. And, oddly enough, Teitelman is the second Quaker Jew I’ve known. Bizarre.). See, Bram noticed what the rest of us failed to – that the riff from the new Kiss song, “Modern Day Who Gives a Fuck,” is more or less a total rip-off of The Sword’s Freya.

Think Bram is wrong? Listent to both and decide for yourself.

Here’s Kiss:

And here’s The Sword:

Now, maybe Kiss didn’t do it on purpose. I doubt if Paul or Gene has ever heard of The Sword, even if they did open for Metallica – I mean, those guys are pretty out of touch. But it’s hard for me to believe that Eric Singer and/or Tommy Thayer wouldn’t have some knowledge of “Freya.”

Thoughts?
