black metal guitarists would do well to take some notesfrom this most frightening female
who is hands down the fastestguitarist ripping up a fretboard today. In addition to The
Great Kats amazing guitar abilities, she is extremely proficient on the violin as
well. One listen and you'll agree that Kat has composed some of the most blazing metal
riffs reve recorded.
songs here on Wagners War are delivered at breakneck speedas Kats
fingers roar across the frets at a lightning quick pace. The seven songs contained on this
release clock in at a total of eleven minutes and eight seconds, however, there are more
notes packed onto this CD than on most forty minute albums. Until you have heard the
insanely rapid shredding of this classically influenced wonder, it is impossible to
imagine the sheer speed at which she plays.
addition to being a sort of modern day Paganini on methamphetamines, Kat delivers some
sick vocals on a couple of the songs that are quite disturbed to say the least. But the
overall emphasis here is on the guitars and violins, where Kat is most devastating. Her
virtuosity on these instruments is nothing short of amazing on Humiliation, as
her fingers fly at the speed of light, destroying the egos of would be shredders
always, Kat incorporates elements of classical compositions intoher playing including
Wagners The Ride Of The Valkyries, Liszts Hungarian Rhapsody
#2 and Sarasates Zapateado. Of her own compositions,
War probably stands out as the most brutal, unforgiving track; with its
blazing intensity and sheer forcefulness.
youre a fan of shredding guitar or classically influenced metal, The Great Kat
delivers the type of no holds barred guitar acrobatics that makes for an excellent listen.
Her skills are virtually unmatched in the metal arena and with Wagners
War; she has created yet another shred masterwork. Rating: 8/10
