"No one in heavy metal has exploited Beethoven to the extent of Katherine Thomas, known as 'The Great Kat.' She does not just play Beethoven. If you believe her, she is Beethoven reincarnated. 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." - By Michael Broyles, "Beethoven in America" Book (Indiana University Press)
