FATAL CONCEIT is a Michigan hard rock and heavy metal band that was founded in early 2020. These rockin, wild Michiganders set out to create massive riffs and pounding beats with thought provoking, soul-crushing lyrics. The shredfest never ends with FATAL CONCEIT.

Katie "Kixx" Puga
Katie “Kixx” Puga is a force to be reckoned with. Her background in the music industry is remarkably diverse. Initially starting in the Detroit music scene as a manager in 2018 for a number of projects before having a brief (but extremely successful) run in her own solo project. In this project, she served primarily as front woman while managing. Kixx brings that experience to Fatal Conceit in spades. As far as personal/professional backgrounds go, Kixx wears many crowns. After departing the United States Marine Corps., this mother of two conquered higher education and used her two degrees to enter the world of interior design and became an extremely competitive professional with her company on a regional and national level.
Kixx is something of a musical chameleon whose Apple Music shuffle would be enough to give even the most eclectic listeners whiplash. Her primary influences include New Years Day, In This Moment, Taylor Swift, Blue October, Sleeping At Last, and others.
Most guitarists aspire to be good. Some guitarists manage to be great. Few would even be able to ascend to a place where they could even enjoy Joe Blake's company as an instrumental practitioner.
He may be the second left handed player to have joined Fatal Conceit but Joe is not second fiddle. In fact, Joe rarely ever was second fiddle, even having served as concert master in a number of orchestral ensembles.
In addition to his background in classical music, Joe has made contributions to a number of projects as a multi-instrumentalist.
Contemporaneously, Joe is the creative force behind the mighty GELLING instrumental project and previously held membership in KESTO.
Joe's "Big 4" is Megadeth, Metallica, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Johann Sebastian Bach.
Basically born with drumsticks in hand, James started his musical journey at 6 years old. Since those days, James was a self-taught and natural time keeper, only taking up formal training in college. His fluency with the kit allows James to smash heads in a wide range of genres, from rock/pop music to r&b, jazz fusion, and funk, as well as gospel music in a church setting. James' influences include Larnell Lewis of Snarky Puppy, Canadian drummer Sarah Thawer, and Thomas Pridgen of The Mars Volta.
