Gene Simmons

"Within" was a left-over from the "Carnival Of Souls" album session and probably dated from late-1995 at the earliest, though its history stretched back to 1993/4. This song has one definite extra-KISS performance on the "Psycho Circus" album, though not one that dated to the album sessions: Bruce Kulick appeared on the track during the backwards introduction to the song. Gene had simply pulled that section from the original demo rather than try to recreate it. According to Bruce Fairbairn, "That weird heavy guitar sound that comes in. It was realizing what that guitar sound was. It appeared in one of Gene's demos. And it was so exciting when we brought it in the studio and made that happen. Just that sound... and the thing that thing has... That's not like anything I've really heard from KISS before" (KISS Online w/ Bruce Fairbairn).
