The Geat Kat Biography :
The Great Kat was born Katherine Thomas in Swindon, England and at the age of 3, moved to the U.S. After listening to Beethoven since birth, Kat realized that her mission was to become a composer and musical revolutionary. Kat began piano studies at the age of seven, and switched to the violin at the age of nine in Long Island, NY.
At 15 years old, Kat was accepted to the prestigious Juilliard School of Music in New York City. Kat won many famous competitions in Classical Music, including "The Artists International Competition," "The Robert Hufstader Award" and "The Great Neck Competition." Kat also toured as a soloist in Mexico, the U.S. and Europe.
One day after seeing a Judas Priest Music video ("You've Got Another Thing Coming"), Kat discovered heavy-metal and decided the future of Classical Music was to mix it with Metal. Kat systematically began transcribing all of her violin solos to the guitar and quickly became a guitar virtuoso. Kat invented a new genre of music called "Cyberspeed" (a mixture of Classical and Metal). Cyberspeed music is known for its phenomenal speeds, complicated riffs, screams, heavy rhythms and thrashing sounds. The Great Kat is now on a path to take Classical music into the 21st Century with Metal through the use of MIDI instruments, computer technology and the Internet.
The Great Kat's Greatest Works: "Worship Me Or Die!" CD "Beethoven On Speed" CD "Digital Beethoven On Cyberspeed" Multimedia CD-ROM "Guitar Goddess" CD "Bloody Vivaldi" CD
The Great Kat's Cyberspeed Musical Style: Cyberspeed Classical/Metal Music is the brilliant, unique mixture of Classical, complex music with vicious, violent Speed Metal. The one-of-a-kind blend of Kat's Classical violin virtuosity and speed guitar shredding makes The Great Kat the most eccentric and innovative genius since Beethoven.

Presentation of"Goddess", ,CD rom & video , Bloody Vivaldi-
Album :Guitar Goddess- Style : Great Kat music
In 1996, she recorded a new CD " guitar goddess". 4 songs for eight minutes of ultra speed solis put on speed metal songs. The great Kat's style is defined as cyberspeed music & that's really true. Kat plays one of the fastest heavy metal in the world. In Guitar goddess, the great Kat seems to have new influences such as indus. Songs are sometimes less speed but it strenghthen the unhealthy side of her music. Her solis are incredible. She often plays arrangements of classical songs like Rossini, Beethoven, ...but at a very high speed. This shows her extreme dexterity. On her last album, there's a cover of Sarasate ( a classical composer) & Kat makes a duel based on violin & guitar. It's (on my aim) the best song of the CD. Very impressive...The great Kat's image is also one of the most provocative. On her last videos (that she produces) called "Dominatrix" you can see her in hot & sex outfits, dominating her slaves, huiliated them, .... For now , The great Kat decides to work without the help of records companies. As her slogan is "The great Kat, the music of the 21 th century", she decided to work with technology. So she creates her own web site at http://www.greatkat.com. this site contains hot photos, songs, excerpts from her last CD rom. This one, called "digital Beethoven on cyberspeed" contains 5 new songs, a gallery of famous composers. It allows to play on virtual classical instruments, to answer The great Kat IQ test ( as it was in Beethoven on speed booklet), ....Discover her in interview.

The Great Kat has done more than her best to make the ultimate album before the XXIth century. This album starts with an amazing cover of Vivaldiís « The four season ».
