VILE CREATURE ANNIHILATE YOUR SENSES WITH COVER OF KITTIE’S ‘PAPERDOLL’

VILE CREATURE ANNIHILATE YOUR SENSES WITH COVER OF KITTIE’S ‘PAPERDOLL’
Salad Days

The group contributes the track to The Flenser’s ’Send The Pain Below’ Nu-Metal Compilation.

Continuing the rollout of The Flenser’s highly-anticipated ‘Send The Pain Below’ compilation (available on vinyl to subscribers of their Series Three membership club), Vile Creature have unveiled their contribution to the release — a doomy, crushing cover of Kittie’s ‘Paperdoll’. The song originally appeared on Kittie’s year 2000 debut RIAA gold record ‘Spit’ and singer/guitarist, Morgan Lander told the Washington Post: “We want to destroy the idea that a lot of men see women as blowup dolls. We want to break that, because we’re better than that.” Vile Creature comments, “Kittie is a band that trailblazed, both by bucking metal gender norms and being from southern Ontario. It was a no-brainer for us to cover this, the only non-heavy song from their debut record, and we can only hope we did them justice. Long live Kittie!” Vile Creature is a two-piece experimental doom metal outfit hailing from sunny Hamilton, Ontario. They’d prefer you call them a 9 piece blackened doom metal outfit but their 6 cats and 1 dog seem to not count, which is pretty rude to be honest. Their last record, ‘Glory, Glory! Apathy Took Helm!’ was released in June 2020.
