KITTIE picture
Kittie is a heavy metal band from London, Ontario, Canada. The band is known for incorporating many different metal styles into their music, including groove, thrash, alternative, and death metal. The band rose to success in 1999 when the track Brackish from their debut album Spit became a hit single. The band also supported Slipknot during the early 2000's on Slipknot's United Kingdom tour heightening the band's popularity.

Kittie was formed in 1996, when Mercedes Lander and Fallon Bowman met in a high school gymnastics class. The lead singer, Morgan Lander, is sister to Mercedes. Their original bassist was Tanya Candler, who was forced to leave the band in the winter of 1999 due to health problems. She was replaced with Talena Atfield contracted side player who was never an official member of the band. In 2001, Fallon Bowman left Kittie without citing any official reasons, though it was alleged

Kittie - Safe EP

"Safe" is the second EP from groove/thrash/death/alternative metal band Kittie. Released in-between Oracle and Until the End, Safe is an EP of mostly live versions of Oracle songs. There is also a radio edit and KMFDM remix of the title track.

The live tracks are of stunning high quality, showing me that the band have quite the live performance. "No Name" gets sped up, turning into a total thrash assault. "Severed" is loud and brutal. It's a bit faster, but mostly stays close to the studio version. "What I Always Wanted" is another sped up track, sounding even more punishing than the studio version. Finally, the EP closes with the fantastic performance of "Pain". The few clean vocals that are in the song sound stellar here, along with the growls and snarls.

The radio edit is self-explanatory, an already four minute long song too long? Let's shorten it by only 15 seconds, because that apparently that makes it radio-playable. Despite KMFDM being one of my favorite bands, the remix of "Safe" really is kind of odd. The added industrial elements just don't fit into the soft melancholy sound of the original. The live version of "In Winter" is okay, but I prefer the studio version as the vocals are a bit better.

Want a live companion to Oracle? This certainly acts as a nice companion. Highly recommended for fans of Oracle or even just great live performances. Hope you found this review helpful.

Kittie - Oracle

Oracle is the second studio album from groove/thrash/death/alternative metal band Kittie. After the success of their debut album, instead of following in the wake of their success, Kittie switched from nu-metal to a crushingly heavy groove/death sound. One could say this drastic switch alienated some of their fans, but at the same time it probably made them gain some fans of the more extreme sides of metal.

As soon as the album opens with the title track, you're given crushing sludgy grooves and deep growls. This sets the stage for the majority of the album, with a bit of variation mixed in with some of the tracks. The title track, "Mouthful of Poison", "Severed", "Pain", "Wolves", and "No Name" all feature monstrous grooves, the latter speeding up to thrash at the end and some of them having killer descending death metal guitar licks. There are also a few Alice in Chains-esque alternative metal tracks that mix that sound with the groove/death of the majority of the album. The 10-minute "Pink Lemonade" has some drone/sludge elements to it, and "Safe" provides a dreary melancholy break.

I must give mention to the cover of the Pink Floyd classic, "Run Like Hell". I love it when bands make a song their own when covering it, and they certainly do here. It turns into a crushing groove metal song with colossal double-bass drumming and a distorted guitar solo. I love the original, as it's one of my favorite Floyd songs, but I love hearing it done metal-ized.

Just like everything I've mentioned so far, everything else has improved immensely from the debut. Vocally, you get deep growls and melancholy clean vocals. There are tons of killer riffs, and the drums pack so much punch that you can sometimes feel the reverb. The lyrics are more cryptic and contemplative, and are a lot more mature than the angst-y lyrics of the debut.

While it's typical of later albums to improve on debuts, creating a complete masterpiece after a very mediocre debut is quite the feat. This is a classic in my book, and perfectly balances out a main sound with enough variation to keep it interesting. Highly recommended for any groove/death fans. Hope you found this review helpful.

KITTIE Spit

Album · 1999 · Nu Metal

Unitron
Kittie - Spit

Spit is the debut studio album from death/thrash/groove/alternative metal band Kittie. Kittie became somewhat of an overnight sensation when they released their debut studio album in 1999, and it's easy to see why as they were an all-girl band playing Nu-metal at the height of the genre's popularity. Because of this, their later albums are very often mislabeled as Nu-metal/alternative metal when they drastically changed their musical style after the debut.

As soon as the opening title track starts, I'm immediately reminded of one band, that band being Slipknot. The guitars sound similar to the grooving riffing of Slipknot's early mainstream albums. While this sound is catchy for a couple songs, it simply gets way too monotonous, with very little variation to keep it interesting. Vocally wise, there's the typical nu-metal semi-harsh vocals/clean vocal contrast, and while that works for some bands such as Coal Chamber, it doesn't work here. The semi-harsh vocals sound really whiny, which is pretty much the exact opposite of what you want. The clean vocals are nothing to write home about either, being pretty bland.

The lyrics range from bland to awful. When you have song titles like "Get Off (You Can Eat a Dick)", you know you're either listening to Grindcore, mediocre lyrics, or both. You could make the argument that teenagers wrote this, but look at Death Angel's The Ultra Violence, they were teenagers and wrote tons of riffs and lyrics perfect for thrash metal.

This album follows nearly all of the nu-metal cliches, and while I enjoy some nu-metal bands, this represents what many people hate about it. If Kittie hadn't of improved immensely later on, this album probably would have just barely become a footnote in metal history. Thankfully the band would drastically change their style on the next album. Hope you found this review helpful.

KITTIE I've Failed You

Album · 2011 · Alternative Metal

Time Signature
Time never heals...

Genre: power-thrash metal

Kittie are often described as an alternative metal band, or a nu metal band, but "I've Failed You" is an onslaught of dark power-thrash which definitely does not fail.

The album starts out with the uptempo thrash 'I've Failed You' which is followed by a string of mainly midtempo tracks that combine power metal and thrash metal, although there are also a couple of heavy tracks and uptempo tunes as well. While there are alternative metal elements on the album, mostly in the form of Alice-in-Chains inspired clean choruses (a lot of the vocals are harsh and growled though), I hear no nu metal- elements whatsoever (there's no rapping, no hip hop elements, and most of the tracks have guitar solos).

In terms of musicianship, the ladies in Kittie show that they are skilled rock musicians. The rhythm guitar picking is very precise as is the drumming, while the guitar solos have a lot of blues feel to them.

This is all out metal, and, if they can live with the harsh vocals, "I've Failed You" should appeal to fans of power-thrash metal as well as fans of modern extreme metal (they should have no problems with the harsh vocals of course) and fans of alternative metal.

I have tried to avoid the issue of gender, because I think that it is irrelevant to the music, but, if the Mythbusters ever set out to investigate the myth that girls can't rock, all they needed in order to bust that myth would be one spin of this album.

AtomicCrimsonRush
This is where Kittie became Kittie litter for me. Sadly the sound became distorted drivel, like punks on acid, angry, and bitter. The debut and second album were great but the whole novelty wore thin. There is only so much female growling I can stand. Like Astarte, the band look beautiful but they sound like demons possessed.

The banshee vocals are nauseating at times and they love to curse and get angry about the abuse, violence and death in their lives. Highlights are Look So Pretty, Until the End, In Dreams, Burning Bridges and Into the Darkness. But even these do not measure up to Charlotte or Spit from the debut, or Run Like Hell and Oracle, among their best tracks. This was the last Kittie album I could endure unfortunately.
