'Great Kat' shreds Beethoven and metal stereotypes

See also

The rock/metal music scene has long been known as having the reputation of being a "boy's club," but there are women with great talent in the industry. Katherine Thomas or "Great Kat" is an alumna of Juilliard, a very prestigious music school and is said to be among the fast guitar shredders in the world as well as a violin virtuoso. She uses her knowledge of classical music and love of metal to combine them in a high speed frenzy of technical skill and feeling. You can preview songs from her album "Beethoven Shreds" here.

Recently, her work was highlighted in a TV commercial as backup music for a new video game "Call of Duty: Ghosts". The song is her rendition of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons." You can see the clip on Youtube or click on the video in the article.

This writer can't wait to listen to her works at greater length.

You can download her songs from iTunes, like her Facebook, and follow her on Twitter.
