The Great Kat has been called one of the fastest shredders of all time by Guitar One magazine, and watching her play it seems like a fair accolade.

-"No one has exploited Beethoven to the extent that Katherine Thomas, known as The Great Kat, has. She does not just play Beethoven: she considers herself Beethoven reincarnated. In a male-dominated field, heavy metal, she is virtuosic, transgressive, and aggressive." - Michael Broyles, Co-Curator "America's Beethoven Exhibit" at The Ira F. Brilliant Center For Beethoven Studies

-"There is no confusing The Great Kat with anyone else...A fire-storm of blond hair whipping around a guitar that's smoking from ferocious fingers and a whole lot of fury. A graduate of the elite Juilliard School, The Great Kat is best known and loved (and sometimes feared) for her speed metal interpretations of the most famous and well-loved pieces of classical music." - Melanie Falina, AXS.com
 
"The Great Kat (Beethoven Shreds) includes a short arrangement of the tune [Beethoven Symphony No 5] at a breakneck tempo, infused with shred heroics and speed-metal accompaniment. The Great Kat's shred histrionics take Beethoven's Fifth to a whole new level." Total Guitar Magazine
 
"Female shredder The Great Kat, who actually began life as a Juilliard Music School violin prodigy and then discovered heavy metal guitar." - Ian Christe, Sirius XM Liquid Metal
 
"Kat is truly one of the fastest and most over-the-top guitarists in the history of metal, and that can't be disputed. " Bob Smith, Good Times Magazine
 
"The Great Kat can totally shred.  In fact, she's so scary fast on guitar and violin, that once you retrieve your ego from the gutter, you almost have to laugh." Michael Molenda, Guitar Player Magazine
