PRLog - Dec. 17, 2011 - CINCINNATI CITYBEAT'S "SQUEEZE THE DAY FOR 12/16" FEATURES THE GREAT KAT!
"Great modern Beethoven reimaginer — The Great Kat! The Metal guitarist is one of the fastest on the planet (ask Guitar World magazine, which ranked her on their list of the 50 fastest players ever). Kat is a LVB superfan known for her takes on the musical genius' greatest composition. It's pretty much exactly what you would think a wild-eyed Thrash Metal guitar shredder playing Classical music would sound like, but impressive nonetheless."
- Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat

WQXR CLASSICAL RADIO FEATURES THE GREAT KAT IN "HOW BEETHOVEN BECAME AN AMERICAN ICON"! "Ludwig Through the Lens of Filmmakers, Activists, Rockers and Rappers. The Great Kat riffs on Beethoven." - By Brian Wise, WQXR Classical Radio
"No one in heavy metal has exploited Beethoven to the extent of Katherine Thomas, known as 'The Great Kat.' She does not just play Beethoven. If you believe her, she is Beethoven reincarnated. Loud, blistering fast guitar riffs accompanied by screams, and an aggressive hyper-dominatrix persona. Her act is not subtle. She is direct and flamboyant about her intentions. Her virtuosity is for real. Over-the-top stage persona. This is a frontal assault." - By Michael Broyles, "Beethoven in America" Book (Indiana University Press)
