Kittie has something to prove. The band is comprised of three women playing in the heavily male dominated genre of metal, and on top of this, they are still, more or less, teenagers. Kittie not only has to win over the boys, but establish itself against bands whose members are much older and more experienced. After tours with Slipknot and Pantera, as well as a slight line-up change guitarist Fallon Bowman left the band in , Kittie seems to want Oracle to break it out of the novelty of being an all-girl metal band. From the album artwork featuring pictures of chest x-rays with open safety pins, highlighted by bloody red to frontwoman Morgan Lander's constant guttural screaming, Kittie's aim is to show how downright scary it is. The band doesn't want to be seen as having anything to do with anything feminine.
