I recommend Nuclear Death as the ultimate of female vocal death and thrash bands. This however still rules. The Kat has some funny lyrics, is loud, and is very fast. This is not really brutal style metal. More of the early cheesier style of extreme metal. It’s cheesy but really funny and fun to listen to. The Kat rules!
Metal Album Reviews[RSS]
Debut album from American guitarist vocalist Katherine Thomas, originally released in 1987. A mix of glam and thrash metal that stands as the total opposition to what is know as “Thinking Man’s metal”. Exaggerating vocals, childish lyrics, undisciplined guitar shredding, and very little cohesion within song arrangements. If you are very serious about your music this album is very likely to stand as an insult to your intelligence, still if you have already heard/collected just about every 80s metal record you could consider buying this. This is so ridiculous that it’s almost fun.
“Power Play” magazine (issue 94) marks this album with 2/10 commenting: “Her vocals are absolutely diabolical; her playing is sloppier than a Dutch blwjb… Avoid like the plague my friends”
As beautiful as she is talanted, this classicly trained musician turned the world of music on it’s ear. With a blistering set, ‘Worship me or Die’ is the ultimate collision of speed metal and classical music.
The Kat performs classical music on an electric guitar in ways Beethoven and Bach would be amazed to hear.
But the Kat is not just a performer, she is also an artist that writes her own songs as well. I can’t believe how Britney SPears can be plastered everywhere while The Great Kat has fallen into obscurity.
So get on your knees maggots! This is the ultimate goddess of Guitars and heavy metal. The Greta Kat could eat Lita Ford for breakfast.
I remember when I first heard The Great Kat…I wondered why she wasn’t big. I still wonder that, but I think she just markets herself poorly with her egotistical “I’m the best ever” bs. Regardless, her music is fun and awesome metal. She gives classical music a real heavy metal mosh touch, which I love. My only gripe is that she doesn’t lengthen her songs, or make full albums as opposed to 4 or 5 song eps over and over.
If you’re into metal, check her out. If you’re into classical music played metal…check her out.
