Title: “Spit In Your Eye” (re-release)
Label: Metal Mind Productions
Release Date: 10/8/2002 (original release date)
Kittie fans of the world will be happy campers as those fine folks over at Metal Mind Productions deliver the entire back catalog of the all girl Nu-Metal group for them to enjoy and to up the ante just a little bit more they have even made sure to toss in their first ever DVD “Spit In Your Eye” for good measure and this film is the topic of our review. The film was originally released on the bands previous label Artemis Records in 2002 and since that label has ceased function this is a great chance to get superb editions of these all of these albums in limited edition formats which include some bonus content. It’s also a great way to give some added support to a company that is all about presenting the world high quality Metal releases. As far as this video goes, when one watches “Spit In Your Eye”, you might have thought this to be a release that merely presented the bands promotional films of the time but instead we get nine tracks of live footage that all come from the bands debut release “Spit”. The footage comes from a series of shows that were recorded during their tours in 2000, and in looking at it I can say that this footage is really essential stuff for the bands hard core following and maybe even would be found interesting to those who hold some morbid curiosity as to what they are all about. Historically, whether you appreciated the band or not, there were many moments where these girls broke ground that was not easily broken and managed to stand tall in an industry that was much more male dominated than we find it being today.
