Kittie

Morgan Lander (guitar/vocals)
Mercedes Lander (drums)
Tara McLeod (guitar)
Ivy Vujic (bass) If you're looking for subtle, look somewhere else. Kittie have never been for the faint of heart, but on new release I've Failed You the Canadian quartet redefine the scope of their heavy metal vision. They forge extreme anger with extreme vulnerability, splatter innocence with a foreboding doom, and bleed beauty and ugliness into a swirling aural mask. I've Failed You leverages the raw nerves of a brittle psyche against an unyielding human spirit, and elevates Kittie to all new extremes.
