ALL ABOUT THE ROCK'S REVIEW of THE GREAT KAT'S "BEETHOVEN SHREDS" CD!
"The Great Kat. Beethoven Shreds CD. Regarded as one of the greatest extreme shred albums of all time. The Great Kat is listed as one of the fastest shredders of all time and this is expressed on the 300BPM version of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakovs Flight Of The Bumble Bee. Not only is this track stupidly difficult to play on the violin due to its use of chromatic sixteenth notes, to attempt this on guitar, at speed and execute it well, takes incredible talent and fingering precision. Kat does so, and this is probably due to her multi instrument virtuosity and her knowledge of classical music in general. Kats virtuosity knows no bounds and this is in part to her graduating from Juilliard. There are many guitarists and musicians who could learn a lot from this woman and her shredding technique." - John Deaux, All About The Rock

LAUT.DE NAMES THE GREAT KAT in "30 FEMALE ACTS IN METAL"!
"THE GREAT KAT. Violin Virtuoso, Shredding Guitar Goddess and quite modest. THE GREAT KAT is unique in the metal circus. When she started playing the guitar at the Juilliard School, her love for Viennese classical music quickly mixed with speed metal. Whether it is with classic covers, Beethoven or with her own compositions 'Satan Goes To Church', one thing is certain: the woman is an absolute cult with the Hard-Core Kat-Slaves." - by Sven, Laut.de
"The Great Kat aka Beethoven. I love this album 'Worship Me Or Die!' 'Speed Death.' WOW! That's f**kin fast! I was totally shocked. This woman is a master of promos. Her interviews are amazing. If you gave the Iron Sheik a guitar and made him a girl, it would be The Great Kat. Listen to the album. I consider it to be a masterpiece. She was a Juilliard trained violinist. She wrote a song with Timothy Leary called 'Right Brain Lover'. A great album. I will gladly lick your boots. Love you, Kat!" - Zach & Don, Are You Morbid Podcast

Five Count INTERVIEW with THE GREAT KAT: "An Evening
With The Great Kat"!!
"The Great Kat. A graduate of Juilliard School, The
Great Kat is a master of both the guitar and the violin.
She’s considered one of the fastest shredders of all
time. During the show The Great Kat discussed her new
DVD, explained why all other guitarists are morons, and
proclaimed that she’s the reincarnation of Beethoven.
Worship The Great Kat or die!" - Dustin, The Five Count
BIARTAU.COM NAMES THE GREAT KAT "THE 10 FASTEST GUITARISTS IN THE
THE GREAT KAT
The Great Kat is the stage name of Katherine Thomas who is famous
for her thrash interpretations of classical music. Mostly she plays
with an electric guitar, but sometimes she plays violin. In fact
Thomas is a violin coach, who graduated from Juilliard School and
had a tour playing conventional classical music before finally
crossing to metal. She is as crazy as she seems.

Calyx Picture Agency, Swindon, England Features Katherine Thomas Violin Virtuoso (The Great Kat)! "The Great Kat is from Swindon" Calyx News, Swindon Archive, Swindon News | April 19, 2017 by Richard Wintle" http://calyxpix.com/2017/04/19/great-kat-swindon/
"I was hunting down some negatives for the next feature in the Swindon Heritage Magazine when I came across a sheet marked Katherine Thomas on DMJ. and scribbled was the add 'American music star returns home'. Yes indeed we can add the Katherine Thomas aka Great Kat to the list of Swindon icons. Kat, please come back." - Richard Wintle, Calyx Picture Agency http://calyxpix.com/2017/04/19/great-kat-swindon/
"Violinist Katherine Thomas. Prowling the stage more in the style of a rock star than classical maestro she delighted the audience with a stunning display of technique and skill." - Swindon (England) Evening Advertiser review of Katherine Thomas' Solo Classical Violin Recital on June 20, 1984 in Swindon, England
“The Great Kat. This Juilliard-trained violinist’s turbocharged, speed-metal readings of classical pieces were pretty astounding when she first appeared…They’re still impressive, in fact, and Kat (born Katherine Thomas) may be one of the fastest guitarists of all time.” – by Michael Molenda, Guitar Player Magazine READ at http://www.guitarplayer.com/artists/1013/50-sensational-female-guitarists/62327
"The Great Kat, a Juilliard-trained virtuoso on guitar and violin, would like it to be known that no snowstorm currently crippling the Northeast is going to stop her from shredding as a woman of such talents could and—at least in certain instances—should. Galleries and museums might be closed, but the Great Kat has sounds on offer on her website, sure to warm up any snow day.Consider them in advance of what the news release promises is a “NEW GREAT KAT SHREDCLASSICAL DVD COMING in 2017,” with takes on Vivaldi, Liszt, Sarasate, Bazzini, and more. Other points of distinction include the honor of being named one of the “TOP 10 FASTEST SHREDDERS OF ALL TIME” by Guitar One magazine and a song, “Right Brain Lover,” purportedly created in collaboration with Timothy Leary. (The existence of the song has an air of mystery about it, but there is record of it in Leary’s papers in the New York Public Library.)" - By Andy Battaglia, ARTNEWS http://www.artnews.com/2017/03/14/goddess-shreds-in-stella-blizzard-2017/

THE GREAT KAT INTERVIEW in METAL KAOZ! "If you are a guitar
aficionado, you can definitely handle some finger-melting guitar
shredding, but can you handle the fastest, meanest and most
provocative guitarist in the entire Metal scene? Hell yeah, The
Great Kat has been exactly that, and has tormenting guitars and
violins which can hardly keep up with her face-melting shreds." - by
Dimitris Kontogeorgakos, Metal Kaoz

Great Kat. Rossini William Tell Overture, aggressiveness with
combination of the ultra-fast pace as well as with the maniacal
madness. Bazzini “The Round of the Goblins” song, of course, is very
fast, faster than the original." By Pawel, Metal Centre
