"Guitar virtuoso The Great Kat. Beethoven on Speed was our favorite album of the night. It's just fun. Her songs are packed with nice bouncy thrash riffs, and are nice little spurts of aggression and speed, like grindcore for shredheads."

"Guitar virtuoso The Great Kat. Beethoven on Speed was our favorite album of the night. It's just fun. Her songs are packed with nice bouncy thrash riffs, and are nice little spurts of aggression and speed, like grindcore for shredheads. Her abundant guitar solos are unsubtle and proceed at amazing speeds. The whole album says, "Hey, I went to Juilliard" and shreds along its lunatic way." - Joseph "Blood Mace" McIntosh and Chris "Demon Scourge" Eddy, Metal Night at The Westside Palace

“BEETHOVEN ON SPEED” REVIEWS:
"The Great Kat, 'Beethoven On Speed'. Psychofrantic, unrelenting dose of furious and fast guitar licks. The Great Kat definitely has chops - honed on classical concert violin - and she takes them to new gothic heights." - Billboard Magazine
"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"
“The wave of the future might well be heavy-metal Beethoven by way of Juilliard.” - John Rockwell, The New York Times Article on The Great Kat "Is This Kat Krazy Like A Fox"
“The Great Kat. On 'Beethoven On Speed' she melds metal and classical so skillfully that if Beethoven were alive today he'd have been a head-banging metal maniac." - Dan Aquilante, New York Post Article on The Great Kat "ROLL OVER, BEETHOVEN...and let Kat tell ya the news"
