They want their rights back so ........they go into the studio in a crazy move, same as Gene stretching the notes on the other thread.
So they decide to record :

1 - Lick it up : I think Gene would be pretty decent in the studio! Paul not so much but he would alter some of the melodies to suit and Tommy would be adding some classic leads to the mix.
2 - Asylum : I think they could pull this off !
3 - Crazy nights: Would be pretty cool !!!!!!!!!!!!!

What?! Lick it Up, production wise is perfect. Vocals wise, Gene and Paul were at their absolute peak. Ditto Asylum. Tommy Thayer improving on Vinnie and Bruce’s solos?! Get outta town!!! And of course PAUL CANNOT SING ANYMORE. You have to be trolling. If not, you should be embarrassed for posting such nonsense.

If it is possible, Crazy Nights would benefit from a remix, but it is now literally IMPOSSIBLE For Paul Stanley to sing ANY of those songs, even an octave lower.

It would probably be cheaper to negotiate a deal to buy their rights back (ala Motley Crue)

KISS isn't selling records now, 10 years from now? even less.

I think they would sell better remixed (Asylum, CN, & HITS) than re-recorded. No one wants that, especially after 40 years of hearing songs played slightly differently.

I wouldn't like the idea if Paul's voice was still halfway decent but with his voice as is it feels like an even worse idea

No Pauls voice is the stumbling block.

But ....It may be too late now.....Ace and Peter could have re-recorded all the songs they did with Kiss with Ace now taking the vocals from Gene for some of his classic songs. Call the album Two Sides of the Coin with Ace's solo art embossed into a coin for the front cover and Peters for the back. It would have been pretty cool if it came out before the reunion.

If they’re going into the studio during this downtime (which is doubtful) I’d rather they record new songs. Surely they’d have 3-4 songs together to do an EP. Surely! :?

Why not just a bunch of Covers? Call the album 'Behind the Makeup' and have each member pick 3 songs that mean a lot to them and just do it. Put 10% of the proceeds to work into finding a cure for this virus.

That Jigoku retsunden sounded weird and in a way unnatural, I would definitely prefer to hear some remixed/remastered editions, mainly Hotter than hell and Unmasked, both could benefit from a crispier sound
I would add also Creatures of the night, I know that it might sound as blasphemy but I really think that the thunderous drum sound kinda ‘strangle’ the songs subtracting the guitars and bass dynamics while I would definitely love to hear a more balanced mix

Maybe they could do some KISS covers. What I mean by that is pick a dozen tracks from the catalog and record them with the current band. The problem with the Jigsaw Reduction album was they they tried to recreate the songs pretty much note for note. But if they went in and recorded the songs with the same approach as they had with the last two studio albums then it will sound more alive and energetic.

Imagine songs from UNMASKED, CRAZY NIGHTS or any of the other oddly produced records being re-done in a more no frills hard rock fashion.

Actually, what this forced lay off will probably do is speed up the process for the documentary and biopic they were talking about a few months back.

Maybe in remote talks about it, or in writing for it, but production-wise, I imagine Covid-19 will be causing delays across the board. I wonder how well KISS would work as a band without being in the same room if they turn to making new music to fill the void.

Gene, Eric, Tommy. Paul managed to be surprisingly good for some of the tracks they're using in concert, maybe he can still pull a new song delivery together. But it must be so frustrating on new material to not be able to make your voice do anything like what you can imagine doing for a song.

But even an EP or a single from KISS would be exciting in these times, so if that was the goal, it can easily be Gene carrying the vocal load. Use the strengths you've got. Paul can still write and play and be heard from vocally but he doesn't have to be the lead guy for this.

Hotter Than Hell would be interesting. Listenable sound and tempos, please!

Then again, the last time I heard Paul SING was over 10 yrs ago, so of course it wouldn't work.

Gene knows better than to re-record the entire Kiss catalog. Each album would get downloaded 10 million times by freckle face kids and you know that damn Napster.

Exactly
Let’s try this
Let’s get Zep to re record Physical Graffiti with Plant who can’t sing like he used to and Jason Bonham
I’m sure it will sound just as good as the original

Even if his voice was ok I still don't get the reason to re-record old songs.

I'd rather KISS do something with the original 1981 "hard rock" album that was shelved in favor of the Elder. Remaster the original demos like Deadly Weapons and some others. Keep Ace and Carr's original performances.

I wouldn't be up for this at all. It's not like they'd have anything to add to them to make them better.

Now, what I would like is if they took the top 10 songs from the Vault, as voted on my Vault owners, and do a fully produced KISS album of those songs. I've heard that some of these are really amazing songs.
