"The Great Kat, whose 34 videos have collectively received over one million hits on YouTube, has released her eleventh album. Appropriately titled 'Beethoven Shreds,' a speed demon version of five revered classical tracks served up Great Kat style on guitar. Combining her love of all things metal with her knowledge of classical music, the album is a whirlwind look at Beethoven gone metal. Lacing virtuosity with speed." - Examiner.com
"No one in heavy metal has exploited Beethoven to the extent of Katherine Thomas, known as 'The Great Kat.' 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." -"Beethoven in America" Book (Indiana University Press)
