Beastly in the best sense, ferocious violin virtuoso and lightning-clawed guitar shredder The Great Kat (born Katherine Thomas) exploded on to the metal scene in 1987 with Worship Me or Die! It’s a still-stupefying incendiary collection of original compositions that announced a new talent that could never be slowed down, held back, or pent up. Since then, Kat continues to slay all comers with live performance displays of seemingly impossible technical wizardry and a steady succession of releases that combine her classical music roots with her volcanic lust for metal at its fastest, hardest, and most complex. Kat also sings like a she-demon in simultaneous agony and ecstasy while her hellfire music blazes ever onward." - by Mike McPadden, VH1"ROCK ON, QUEENS OF NOISE: 10 MORE KILLER HEAVY METAL FRONTWOMEN"  - VH1
