"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
METAL CENTRE'S REVIEW of THE GREAT KAT'S "ROSSINI'S RAPE" CD! "The
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

METALLIZED SPECIAL FEATURE ON THE GREAT KAT! "WOMEN ROCK - # 36 -
The Great Kat" "The Great Kat. Her transcriptions of the great
composers of the past sonatas for violin on the six strings are
furious. Satan Says reminds you a musician able to "shred" very high
speed, combining technical and physicality. Worship Me or Die!
technique, combined with an image deeply sexy and aggressive.
Beethoven on Speed blend of the classic and speed-thrash. Many, many
notes to stun the listener. Digital Beethoven on Cyberspeed; Guitar
Goddess; Bloody Vivaldi, Rossini's Rape; Wagner's War; Beethoven
Shreds, Extreme Guitar Shred and Beethoven's Guitar Shred. All this,
always full use of classical scores. The image is Dominatrix
sexual-satanic." - Francesco Gallina "Raven", Metallized
