VH1 NAMES THE GREAT KAT "ROCK ON, QUEENS OF NOISE: 10 MORE KILLER HEAVY METAL FRONTWOMEN"!
"The Great Kat. 'Metal Messiah'. Beastly in the best sense, ferocious violin virtuoso and lightning-clawed guitar shredder The Great Kat (born Katherine Thomas) exploded on to the metal scene in 1987 with Worship Me or Die! It’s a still-stupefying incendiary collection of original compositions that announced a new talent that could never be slowed down, held back, or pent up.
Since then, Kat continues to slay all comers with live performance displays of seemingly impossible technical wizardry and a steady succession of releases that combine her classical music roots with her volcanic lust for metal at its fastest, hardest, and most complex. Kat also sings like a she-demon in simultaneous agony and ecstasy while her hellfire music blazes ever onward." - by Mike McPadden,

MEDIABISTRO: "TAG EUROPE, TESCO USE THE GREAT KAT TO PROMOTE 'CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS'! "In a textbook display of how advertising is much different in the U.K., Tag Europe and Tesco — the world’s second largest retailer — used the music of The Great Kat in their ad for Call of Duty: Ghosts to add a sense of drama and urgency to the spot. In America, you don’t use the music of classically-trained virtuosos to sell video games, you use Eminem. The 20 second spot scores The Great Kat‘s rendition of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” to its footage of players enjoying the game." - By Erik Oster, Mediabistro
