Album Review

A lightning-quick rendition of Rossini's "The Barber of Seville" and guitarist/violinist the Great Kat is "High-Priestess of Guitar Shred" and "inventor of Cyberspeed Metal/Classical Music."

Kat has rifled the shelves of Frederick's of Hollywood and bondage-wear marts for a taffeta and leather look that is sure to intensify the wet dream of any teenage metalhead. Being that she is much more likely to capture the eyes of the next generation of arpeggio purveyors, she just may fulfill her dream of resurrecting classical and metal music, if only on a limited scale.

Guitar Goddess features the lusty lady of the leapin' licks among big crosses, dungeon settings, whips and chains, and enough fake blood to see you through to the end of an H.G. Lewis flick.
