BURN OUT MAGAZINE'S REVIEW OF "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD
By George Christodoulopoulos, Burn Out Magazine (Greece)
Great Kat strikes again
Great Kat’s persona combines the brutality of death metal, the voluptuousness of S&M and the atmosphere of the B-movies with… Lucky Luke’s hands quickness over classical or classical-like creations. More commonly, she takes the Ibanez, or any other electric guitar, and tears it to pieces – and all this wearing her stockings and her leather underwear, screaming with her face full of (fake) blood and kicking guys in the balls with her boot.
Her new essay moves in that dimension: Beethoven’s Guitar Shred contains classical music from the likes of Beethoven, Paganini and Bach revised in very, very fast heavy metal music and also the known Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee”, played in 300 bpm! Oh, we mustn’t forget the top hits “Blood” and “Islamofascists”, cause we’re from the USA, right?
For the end, leaving the kitsch aesthetics aside, Great Kat is a great instrument player. She easily shreds the guitar and the violin playing with devilish quickness and surely deserves the honors she’s got from magazines from the US.
