There is an old saying about not being able to keep a good man down and while it might seem rather sexist when applying this to the girls of Kittie – I feel that it is safe to use it when one considers the amount of up and down rollercoaster rides that they have experienced over the course of their twelve year career. Hitting the public hard with their debut “Spit” (1996) the band was often lumped into the Nu-Metal scene probably because of the way the riffs were done and with Morgan’s guttural Death Metal growls. Like many bands they would have some lineup and unfortunately record label changes but through it all the resolve of the Lander Sisters only grew stronger when any one of these occurrences might have found another band calling it a day.
