Kittie is a Canadian heavy metal band from London, Ontario, formed in 1996. 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 2000s on Slipknot's UK tour, heightening the band's popularity. In The Black, the fifth studio album of her band’s decade-long career as metal’s reigning femme fatales. The band delivered true on their promise, creating a 12-track behemoth of unapologetic metal splendor, forging bone-crushing music and penetrating vocals into a snarling beast of blunt force trauma. And better yet, they did it without any drama. With total domestic sales in excess of 1,25 million, Kittie also approached the recording of In the Black as complete free agents, for their first time ever, writing and recording a record with absolutely no outside influences breathing down their necks. The results will make your skin crawl and the hair on the back of your neck stand at attention!!
