The Great Kat
Released: 2000, Indie
This month (December 2016) I've been reviewing lots of Christmas Metal albums, (13 to be exact) most of which are blends of Metal and classical/ Christmas songs. Frankly all those wimpy Christmas songs left me with a bad taste in my mouth and I wanting more, so it is time to revisit the one true originator of the Metal-Classical interbreeding...THE GREAT KAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROSIN'S RAPE is probably more over the top than any of her other releases in terms of lyrics. Listen to the lyrics (or read them i the booklet) of the cuts 'Sodomize' and 'Castration'. I think THE GREAT KAT frightens me and excites me all at the same time. Looking at the poor fellow on the front I'm not sure I could handle being one of THE GREAT KATS' sex-slaves. I am simply not worthy. Musically, she shreds, she kills, she blazes, un-remorseful, unrepentant and unashamed. There is a beautiful purity of noise that your average grind-core band only wish they could achieve. Uber-fast, crushing and deadly, THE GREAT KAT leaves no survivors.
Any writer giving anything less than a perfect score of five out of five to anything produced by THE GREAT KAT!!!!! would instantly expose and betray themselves as a total poser, one unable to comprehend the majesty and glory of THE GREAT KAT!!!! ...BUT(!) once again I deduct a half-mark for for a painfully short six-minute EP. I guess the average Metal fans can't handle more than ten minutes of THE GREAT KAT!!!!! before their head implodes! It is the only logical explanation why this EP is so short.
