Kittie in Concert: Opera House, Toronto

I had the pleasure of photographing one of my favourite Metal bands as they played a show at the Opera House in Toronto on March 3rd, 2010 (yeah, it’s taken me a while to post these).  Kittie is a London Ontario-based Heavy Metal/Alt Metal band formed in 1996 with 5 studio albums under their belts and a new one currently in the works. 

This was my first time seeing them live and they put on a fantastic show.  The irony of their name is quite apparent once you’re confronted with their face-melting sound and this is further emphasized by their stage setup consisting of hot pink microphones and pink be-hearted drum kit with a teddy bear in the rack!  Here’s the lead singer Morgan Lander shredding away during a solo:

…and then you get fun moments like this and you realize that it’s not all about guttural screams, killer riffs and chest-pounding double bass, but four girls just having a blast rocking out together:

♫ Disguised behind the lies,
Do you not realize?
This is heartless,
This is CUT THROAT! ♫

Mercedes and her signature drum kit.  Neil Peart’s may have more pieces, but does it have hearts and a teddy bear?  I don’t think so.
