"Universally acknowledged as one of the fastest guitar players on the planet, English-born virtuoso The Great Kat is still laying waste to both speakers and strings over a quarter of a century after gatecrashing the men-only '80s guitar hero party. The Great Kat. 'The Flight Of The Bumble-Bee' sounds like a furious, frenetic, otherworldly opus, Beethoven's '5th Symphony', a brain-melting, eyeball-popping, tooth-loosening senses killer. Paganini's 'Caprice #24' whizz past in a collision of astounding ability and absurd ideology, the results ridiculously entertaining."- Uber Rock

MISTER GROWL'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "BEETHOVEN SHREDS" CD! "The Great Kat - Beethoven Shreds. She has the technical chops to outduel any bloodthirsty immortal wielding a six-string. A flash of her finger calluses must make her must love-struck fans faint. The highlight of the album, 'Paganini’s Caprice #24,' offers the most diverse display of skill. She commands each tempo shift with precision and blistering intensity, burning the strings to ash on both her violin and guitar. It’s an astounding achievement that absolutely needs to be shared. The Great Kat takes familiar songs and beats them with chains, spits acid on them, and injects them with hellfire." - By Mister Frasier, Mister Growl

MUSIC LEGENDS' REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "BEETHOVEN ON SPEED" CD! "The Great Kat. Beethoven on Speed. Flight of the Bumble-Bee, is showcased at very high tempos from the Great Kat’s fingers. The God track lets you hear multi-layered guitar solos played simultaneously which the Kat made famous as one of her trademarks. Those who saw Beethoven Mosh know what sexy and lust mixed together with Classical Thrash Metal looks like. Pure Kat. Paganini’s 24 Caprice track in honor of the great Niccolo Paganini. The solos in this track feature insane picking at top speed. This Classical and Thrash Metal album brings the audience to its knees." - Jason Saulnier, Music Legends
 
THE ENTERTAINMENT BANK'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "BEETHOVEN SHREDS" CD! "THE GREAT KAT IS A MUSICAL GENIUS!" "The Great Kat, who is the world's fastest guitarist and plays the ultimate shred guitar, is a musical genius! 'Beethoven Shreds', doing Beethoven's 5th Symphony at lightning speed. All of the songs on this CD are played at a speed that only the most accomplished musicians could even hope to keep up with. What The Great Kat does in just a few moments is breathtaking. The speed at which she is able to play, while remaining in control of the music, is both amazing and perplexing.  When you speak of 'doing things my way,' think of The Great Kat because that's exactly what she is doing by taking her gift as a classical violinist and transforming it into metal shredding of her violin and guitar in an astoundingly brilliant way. I highly recommend this CD." - Charles A. Smith, The Entertainment Bank
 
METAL FORCES MAGAZINE'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "WORSHIP ME OR DIE!" CD! "Musically the album has a lot of high points and Kat certainly shows plenty of ability on the fretboard and shows her virtuosity with a frenzied violin solo on ‘Demons’. Best cuts (musically) are probably the anthemic ‘Metal Messiah’ and the out’n’out thrash of ‘Satan Says’. The strong riffing ‘Ashes To Dust’ is also worth a mention and so too is the excellent production. If you like thrash with commercial appeal then Worship Me Or Die! is worth investigation." - Bernard Doe, Metal Forces Magazine

I think it's kind of refreshing and very funny to hear these classical melodies being performed in a more contemporary way. Over the top? You bet. 'Beethoven Shreds' shows a nice equilibrium between skill, an adventurous approach and humour. And I like that." - Peter Van Laarhoven, United Mutations

"BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD REVIEWS:
EXAMINER.COM'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "The Great Kat's 'Beethoven's Guitar Shred' DVD features close-ups of her rapid finger work. If you like the musical revolution of metal/classical fusion, you'll love it. 'The Flight of the Bumble-Bee.' This is your chance to see her play both the guitar and the violin with equal skill and speed. 'Paganini's 'Caprice #24.' We see her show her mastery on both guitar and violin. The speed of the violin and guitar makes me think of Charlie Daniel's Band's 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' and Tenacious D's 'Rock Off.'" - Marjorie LaPrade, Boston Art Examiner
 
EVERYDAY LIFE'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "THE GREAT KAT’S 'BEETHOVEN’S GUITAR SHRED' DVD. This DVD it is mind blowing I never knew that hearing Beethoven on a guitar could be so cool. Kat is amazing and the way she plays the guitar is beyond brilliant. This lady has some serious lightening fast fingers and puts an awesome heavy metal twist on some old music." - Becca, EVERYDAY LIFE
 
"Another great dvd issued by the Great Kat. She looks great, she plays harder, as always the Great Kat is above the rest. Paganini done by the Great Kat is how it should be done." Jason Saulnier, Music Legends
 
"Great Kat strikes again. Beethoven's Guitar Shred contains classical music from 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!  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." -George Christodoulopoulos, Burn Out Magazine (Greece)
 
"BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED. THIS DVD IS JUST OUTRAGEOUS, IF YOU'RE A GUITAR PLAYER OR JUST LOVE MUSIC YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS DVD TO BELIEVE. IT'S THE GREAT KAT" - Tex Hughes, DVD Tip Sheet
 
HOME CINEMA CHOICE'S REVIEW OF "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "The Great Kat rises again as Beethoven gets the guitar shred treatment on DVD" "If you like heavy metal, distorted guitars and wild ladies in bondage gear, we have just about the perfect DVD for you - The Great Kat's Beethoven's Guitar Shred. Kat's 'shredding' style is based on her classical violin education, now put to use mangling the greats of classical music into a nerve-jarring aural assault of finger-blisteringly fast electric noise. It is something you'll want to watch over and over again, as much for Kat's scantily-clad, blood-spattered dominatrix stage persona as for her blistering performances." - Chris Jenkins, Home Cinema Choice, July 2010
 
"The Great Kat's take on classical music, which is what she's really known for, I think my favorite video would have to be 'Beethoven's Fifth Symphony,' which is simply brutal. 'Hot Shred Bits 2,' that flash by to the tune of some seriously fast shred guitar. I know The Great Kat will never disappoint me...and I can't think of any other artist that I can say that about. So, if you ask me if this release is worth checking out...my response would be, 'You're damn right it is!'" - Paul Autry, Ballbuster Music
 
"This dvd is made for guitar enthusiasts who believe speed is everything. They will love this dvd. For speed freaks." - David Berkham, DVD Corner's Blog
 
AV MANIACS' REVIEW OF "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "Kat has secured her position as the only classically-trained violinist-turned scantily-clad demonic guitar dominatrix and ambassador of the fine musical arts! Wow. It's difficult not to be bowled over by The Great Kat when she pretty much leaves you no alternative! Centering in on the universal male love of blood, cleavage and wickedly fast/intricate guitar displays. BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED, an ultra high-energy paen to Ludwig Van, J.S. Bach, Rimsky-Kosakov, that devilish Paganini, and of course, The Great Kat herself." - Ian Miller, AV Maniacs
 
"Beethoven’s Guitar Shred is a collection of Kat’s videos showing her playing various classical pieces, Speed Metal style. If The Flash played guitar, this is what it would look like. Several magazines proclaim her one of the world’s fastest guitarists, and I believe it. It’s astonishing to watch.  The music is recognizable to anyone who knows the classical pieces.  Flight of the Bumble Bee would be great for any arcade game with a frantic pace. She’s also such an extreme personality that I could see The Great Kat herself in a videogame. She’d fit right in Brütal Legend, and I could totally see her in a nasty fight with Bayonetta." - Jason MacIsaac, Jason.con.ca
 
FAB MAGAZINE'S REVIEW OF "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "The Great Kat dazzles with her virtuosic high-voltage guitar technique (and penchant for heavy metal/goth) on her Beethoven's Guitar Shred DVD. Wildly entertaining." - fab Magazine March 2010
 
"The Great Kat hardcore metal musician with some serious shred, I’m talkin bloody fingers fast dudes. She takes classic tunes and mixes it up with some metal and produces one unique, fast-paced sound. There’s nothing like seeing a woman spread wide with a guitar between her legs. If you’re a fan of heavy metal then definitely take The Great Kat’s Beethoven’s Guitar Shred for a spin; it’s a unique spin on classic hits that’s sure to please. It’s been Valkor tested and TOV Approved." - By Valkor, The Other View
 
"It is my honor to say that her music videos are even more warped and gory than they were when I first started listening to her music! She’s known for awesome guitar shredding, playing classical songs at fast speeds, screaming, and being worshipped." By Mike Burmeister, Adrenalin Metal Union
 
"'Beethoven's Guitar Shred', a DVD featuring Kat's way over the top imagery and absolutely mindblowing guitar playing. Kat's technique through out the DVD has to be seen and heard to be believed; one can practically smell the fretboard frying." - By WestSide Dave Webzine
 
"I never saw such a guitar play before and I think I will never see it again. Incredible technique! The Great Kat managed to play guitar at the highest speed possible. And she is precise like a clock (I mean an atom-clock here). One of the best guitar plays on this globe. Her technique is incredible and cannot be copied by most of the guitarist out there. Every guitar hero fan can enjoy watching this. One of the best guitarist on this planet." - By Cy Ghul, Ghul Productions (Germany)
 
"Today one of the best ('shredding') is The Great Kat. Kat really is original and inventive and like nothing that has come before. One might compare her to Janis Joplin." - By Chuck N. Baker, Veterans Reporter
 
"Wow! Very rarely does a DVD come along that inspires the old 'You'll have to see it to believe it!' But such is the case with The Great Kat's Beethoven's Guitar Shred, an amazing display of speedy guitar wizardry. Kat slices and dices the Paganini composition with precision on guitar but she also plays a violin part that makes Charlie Daniels' fiddle-off with the devil on 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' look like a molasses-dripping contest." - By Kevin Wierzbicki, ANTIMUSIC.COM
 
"The Great Kat's new DVD is out now and is already setting fire to guitars. She's been named one of the fastest guitarists of all time and she means business on this DVD." - Century Media
 
THE FREE LIBRARY'S REVIEW OF "BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD! READ HERE! - By Midwest Book Review
 
"Especially recommended for metal fans." By Midwest Book Review
 
"Her guitar performance is beyond energetic, transcending to the level of mania, as she shreds a ferocious medley of Beethoven, Bach, and raw fervor. A raucous blend of classical music, heavy metal, and stinging social commentary. Beethoven's Guitar Shred is truly unforgettable, and especially recommended for metal fans." - James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review
 
"Ultra-Speed Metal of incredible dexterity. She lays her hands with incredible ready fingers and flying speed on the works of great masters. Beethoven's 5th Symphony, Bach's Third Brandenburg Concerto, and of course the famous Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky-Korsakov shredded at full speed. This is technically impressive." - Matthias Kerber, Abendzeitung (Germany)
 
"The Great Kat is a leather-clad dominatrix who plays lightning-fast metal versions of the classics. This is sex meets shred as Kat rips through The Flight Of The Bumble Bee on electric guitar at 300 beats per minute." - Paul Cole, Sunday Mercury (U.K.)
 
"The Great Kat has launched her new DVD in which the extraordinary guitarist includes classic works by the deaf genius (Beethoven), Bach and Paganini. Katherine Thomas broke speed records by playing the famous piece "The Flight of the bumblebee" at a dizzying 300 beats per minute. A fierce guitarist specializing in heavy metal versions of the classics." - Guillermo Aguilera, Contenido (Mexico)
 
"To the beat of Beethoven at Full Speed. The extraordinary guitarist in this work shows a strong and terrifying personality. A DVD for heavy people, a strange mixture of rock, classical music, hemoglobin, some sex and terror." - Guillermo Aguilera, Supermexicanos (Mexico)
 
"Leather-clad shred guitarist Kat Thomas tears into a selection of classical pieces at breakneck speed including Rimsky-Korsakov's 'The Flight of the Bumble Bee', Paganini's Caprice 24, Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Bach's Brandenburg Concerto."  - Borders U.K.
 
"'Beethoven's Fifth' and 'Paganini's Caprice #24' get a boost of amphetamines, going by in a blur of notes that's over nearly as soon as it starts. Shredder acrobatics and shocking stage show. The Great Kat's place as one of the top 10 fastest guitar-shredders in the world is definitely secure! I can highly recommend these to all fans of hers. Hear some classics played at speeds you can scarcely imagine while have your senses shaken in every conceivable way." - Nolan B. Canova, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
 
"The Great Kat should be feared because her hyper-blasting, neo-classical, whirlwind guitar playing is so precise and intense. This woman really is a better guitarist than most men ever were. Beethoven’s Guitar Shred DVD is a portable clinic of seemingly inhuman guitar antics.  Dominating torture, blood, fire, anti-terrorist sentiments – all wrapped in an oddly tasteful, hyper-classical visual feast." - Mark Morton, Heavy Metal Examiner
 
"Move over, Jamie Foxx. The Soloist's insanely genius Juilliard apprentice is up against some formidable competition, and she's female. The Great Kat is basically showing the male competition how it's done, better and faster.  Her raging, fast forward in real time Beethoven's Guitar Shred is like nothing that has come before. A mix 'n match medley of Beethoven, Bach, Abu Ghraib and Islamic insurgency.  A classical/metal lovers everywhere wakeup call, these mini-musicals for guitar, violin and machete could very well blow your mind." - Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
 
"Another great DVD issued by the Great Kat. She looks great, she plays harder, as always the Great Kat is above the rest. Paganini done by the Great Kat is how it should be done." - Jason Saulnier, Host, Good Time Metal Oldies Radio Show
 
"More female chauvinist than feminist, Kat is best described as a 21st century Janis Joplin who breaks out of the conventionally assigned gender role limitations of acceptable female behavior, creatively and otherwise, to give the historically male dominated music scene a woman's energy and edge." - Prairie Miller, Critical Women On Film Journal - The Women Film Critics Circle
 
"THE GREAT KAT is well-known as the virtuoso of guitar and the violin as well as as the original interpreter of works of classic music: Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Mozart, Paganini and others. The artist is the champion of shredding. The works are played with improbable speed - these are the very quick, mad and furious compositions full of solos as well as brutal screams." - Gnom, Metal Centre Webzine
 
"The original Queen of scream and metal shred returns with a collections of videos on one powerful DVD of intense metals that only THE GREAT KAT can deliver." - Billy Whitfield, Toxic Flyer Zine
 
"BEETHOVEN'S GUITAR SHRED" DVD RATES 10 OUT OF 10 in FROSTER ONLINE UKRAINIAN METAL PORTAL!
 
"The Great Kat is famous for her thrash metal interpretations of well known pieces of classical music. Although she is an accomplished violinist, this concentrates on her virtuoso use of the electric guitar.  Kat gets through a number of well known pieces at breakneck speed." - David Burbidge, Movie Central.TV
 
"Very exact instrumental interpretations and always at full speed." - Eloy Teixido, Won E'mer Webzine
 
"She possesses a prodigious talent, a virtuosic precision that allows her to play classical transcriptions on her guitar at upwards of 300 beats per minute.  The Great Kat is one of those outsize performing personas as well as a masterful musician." - Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Read Entire Review Now!
 
"The Great Kat’s guitar playing is ridiculously fast. Kat Thomas' tears in to The Flight Of the Bumble Bee with accuracy and speed. Her shred rendition of Paganini’s Caprice #24 is also at a mind-blowing speed. Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is nimble, precise and fast. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto ends the classical shred on this DVD with a bang and really leaves you wanting more." - Scott, Metal Martyr
 
"The Great Kat plays at lightening speed that it’s impossible to see her fingers moving up and down the fret. Layers upon layers of intricate fast guitar playing that will make grown men and women sell their guitars. The Great Kat is a musical enigma bringing together what some might consider God’s soundtrack and the Devil’s music in a raging war. Great stuff." - Jim Ody, RoomThirteen Magazine
 
"The Great Kat has stamped a place in metal as not only a virtuoso but also as a fiery character. This DVD is a collection of her performing as a metal maiden, and the music videos are as enticing as they are entertaining.  It is indeed a treat to see any person play instruments at such punishing tempo." - Bill Zebub, The Grimoire
 
"The Great Kat takes guitar playing, classical music, and performance wow-ness to a whole new level. She's outrageous, dangerous, and ferocious -- she's The Great Kat - and if you haven't heard her play yet, after you ingest this DVD you'll never be the same." - Melanie 'Sass' Falina, UnRated Magazine
 
"FASTER, PUSSYKAT! KILL! KILL!" "The Great Kat is tearing the masters a fresh one on her new DVD, Beethoven's Guitar Shred.  'Flight of the Bumblebee,' in the hands of the Great Kat, becomes a teeth-gnashing, sphincter-seizing assault. The chick diddles the fret board like her digits are nothing less than an industrial machine." - Jeanne F., Decibel Magazine
 
"The world famous musical phenomenon that is called The Great Kat is back with an awesome DVD. An outstanding achievement on how Great Kat can shred these classical pieces of music and turn them into extreme Speed Metal with her genius virtuosity. Her ability to melt our ear drums with her furious shredding guitar technique." - Yiannis Z., Metal Temple
 
"Guitar aficionados marvel at the speed of her playing and her ability to maintain such precision despite that speed. Get a feel for what she's all about while watching her fingers fly up and down the frets. Pick up a copy and shred." - Larry McCloskey, Domain Cleveland
 
"Her ability to dazzle you with her speed and skill are not to be missed. The classical music selections highlight not only her shred virtuosity on the guitar, but violin as well. Witness her lightning speed and blinding virtuosity. While she is indeed quick and nimble on the strings, she plays with a clarity and exactness that belies her swiftness." - Michael E. Carver, Michael's Movie Mayhem
 
"The sheer virtuosity of the woman is nothing short of flabbergasting. She goes from guitar to violin with ease, working with precision and speed. I liked very much her rendition of Bach's 3rd Brandenburg concerto. I have heard other versions including the famous Switched On Bach version from Wendy Carlos and Kat's version deserves a place in the list of famous interpretations of this masterpiece." - Jerry Fielden, MetalAngels Productions
 
"Ultimate, electrifying, incandescent, revolutionary musician." - Naja Kemp, Peter Kemp's Theatre
 
"'Beethoven's Guitar Shred' is entertaining from beginning to end. Jaw-dropping 'The Flight Of The Bumble-Bee'. What makes The Great Kat's fretwork so impressive isn't just her incredible speed but it's her clarity. She's playing classical music tunes on an electric guitar at around 300 beats per minute and you can hear every note. Man, she nails it!" Rating: 4 stars out of 4. - R. Scott Bolton, Rough Edge
 
"Genius at work in this metal masterpiece. This Juilliard-trained violinist puts her intensely fast fingers to new use playing some of the fastest shredding you’re ever going to hear on both electric guitar and violin. Amazing version of 'Flight of the Bumblebee.'" - Jonathan Knell, Campus Circle
 
 
"What a blast! This DVD was something else! Very fast guitar and violin playing, a loud mixture of heavy metal and classical played by a buxom gal in a leather halter and black fish net stockings. Talk about roll over Beethoven! I enjoyed the mutant classical stuff on this DVD and plan on sharing it with other classical music/loud guitar fans." - Andrew M, Home Theater Forum
 
"'Beethoven's Guitar Shred' is a very pleasant surprise! I am now able to watch her shredding on the guitar and enjoying every minute. I would give The Great Kat's 'Beethoven's Guitar Shred' a big thumbs up." - Dennis Day, D-Day's Revenge
 
"Has to be heard to be believed! The performance on both instruments is simply flawless." - Asgardlord, The Forgotten Scroll

HOUSTON PRESS INTERVIEW WITH THE GREAT KAT! "The Great Kat: From Juilliard To Shred Goddess"! "Kat is a Juilliard-trained violinist who traded in the sedate world of classical performance to play the guitar just shy of the speed needed to go back in time.  Kat forces these melodies through a black hole and back out again through in a white-hot stream of incredibly fine sound particles that ascend and descend so quickly and accurately that one could debate whether the interpretations are a performance or a weapon. For those who have thus far enjoyed the carnival ride of Beethoven Shreds should have no problem putting Kat's statue alongside the greats." By Jef With One F, Houston Press

To accomplish this, the Juilliard-trained violinist and guitar shredder transforms classical masterworks into speed-metal songs, rages like a demented dominatrix, spews blood, bears arms, exposes her goodies, and indulges in both mental and dramatic castrations." - Michael Molenda, Guitar Player Magazine's "Guts & Glitter"

NACHRICHTEN'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "EXTREME GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "Extreme Guitar Shred from The Great Kat. The Death Metal hard rock antics of The Great Kat is not a gimmick. Katherine offers her guitar to the devil. Above all sits the American flag - and The Great Kat with her guitar and instruments of torture. Driven and extreme are the right words to describe this art. Extreme Guitar Shred could be an art form." - By Christopher Doemges, Nachrichten
 
MISTER GROWL'S REVIEW OF THE GREAT KAT'S "EXTREME GUITAR SHRED" DVD! "The Great Kat. 'Extreme Guitar Shred'. Should be watched rabidly by the fans that worship the Great Kat. Not only does she rain fiery words of degradation down on her servants, but she also dispatches her victims with blood slick on her face, fret-burning fingers, and cleavage. These are moments of pure heavy metal excess that, for a dedicated fan of the Great Kat, will be their raison d’etre. This is essential for the fans who say they worship their Classical-Shred Messiah." - Mister Frasier, Mister Growl
