They were Hard Rock since they existed since the 70s, but their 80s albums are closer to the Glam Metal sound indeed.

Hard rock but in the 80s they looked more glam. Just watch their videos from the 80s then look at their live videos taken from the 70s, big difference. In the 80s it was all about the glam rock/hair metal genre. Even Alice Cooper started looking a bit glam at times in the 80s. Gotta fit in I guess lol.
here's KISS in the 70s
Here they are in the 80s
They look like Ratt, Cinderella and every other 80s glam band.0
