"Extreme Guitar Shred" DVD and "Wagner's War" CD Reviews in United Mutations
By Peter van Laarhoven, United Mutations

Why, I hear you ask, is there no place for female metal-guitar shredders in the United Mutations Latest News section? 

I don't know. Probably because I have never seen one, or maybe because I'm convinced that I wouldn't like it... 

Well, I hadn't met the Great Kat. It can't get any better than this. "Extreme Guitar Shred" is a promotional video, giving one a glimpse into the world of the Great Kat. There's blood (lots of it), and torture, and castration, and whips,... and speed-metal guitar and violin versions of well-known classical pieces.

On the "Wagner's War" CD, the Great Kat rips Wagner's 'The Ride Of The Valkyries' to pieces. The same goes for Liszt's 'Hungarian Rhapsody'. I wouldn't be surprised if she'd call her next album "Speed Metal From Hell". 

Over the top?   
Fun for my ears?
Not really!
You bet!
