1.0 out of 5 stars Kat is Lame! May 8, 2005
By Shred
Format:DVD
I have heard about The Great Kat and I was eager to see her in action. This DVD is VERY disappointing. It is simply a collection of 6 videos that last only 2 minutes each.

The ENTIRE disc runs no more than 15 minutes, which is a total rip-off.

Kat looks like quite an able guitar player but it is really hard to judge from this DVD.

The short videos are extremely fast, with a wall of sound cacophony of noise and grunting animal sound vocals which is nothing less than annoying.

The visual images are disturbing and this is a real schlock piece made to cash in on the Vampire/Speed Metal genre. This is gimmick music if this can even be called music. I'm no prude, I love Sacred Reich, Pantera & all sorts of speed metal. But this disc is simply garbage.

Kat looks like she might have some talent because she can play really fast. But then again I can also play guitar really fast and with a wall of sound band noise behind me you couldn't tell if I was missing notes or what. All her speed is pointless and wasted on this garbage. A whole lot less speed and a good deal more passion might help her playing.

She should join a decent band and actually play songs and guitar solos instead of this noise. I doubt if one could really hear her playing past all this noise that she could even come close to Metallica's Kirk Hammet's TRUE guitar solos.

Amazon needs to allow a zero star rating because this disc really deserves it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was this a joke ? May 11, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had heard about the GREAT KAT for years but never really paid much attention.

Had a chance to see this DVD.

IS THIS A JOKE ?

Irritating noise, no real guitar playing to speak of and what is there is monotonous diatonic noodling with a buzzy tone.

There is no semblance of music to be seen or heard here, just an attempt to be as controversial and noisy as possible.

Beyond bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money and buy gas instead April 27, 2006
By rokker
Format:DVD
six videos, twelve minutes and absolutely nothing enjoyable about this disc. If you've got money to throw away this is a perfect vehicle for that. This clearly proves that fast does not equal great or even talented for that matter. Save your money and buy a gallon of gasoline instead, it will take you further than this DVD ever does.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Stupid April 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is very poorly done. It is a blast of notes that is only tolerable for a short time. She's fast, very fast and equally obnoxious in her act. There is no good and clear footage of her abilities. Her talent is wasted by her antics.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Great Kat 'Etremely Terrible Guitar Shred' September 13, 2009
Format:DVD
It's very rare that a book or dvd inspires me to write a review; but I can't strees enough if you're into absolutly horrible sounding crap that dosn't even sound like music you may want to pick this dvd up. My copy was only a couple bucks. This lady is quite a good violinist, but you will hear very little of it on this piece of garbage. Why listen to Micheal Faith or Jason Becker play Paganninni's 24th caprice clean, precise, in it's entirety, when you can can hear a sloppy, trebely, irritating abrivaited version by a lady that looks like a phyco. With the exception of the Branenburg Concerto #3 (witch is pretty horrible in itself), she seems to consistantly staying focused on playing each piece incomplete, while delivering the same sloppyless and horrible tone with every single song. After a few minutes listening to this, You'll be convinced that Chris Holmes of WASP is a complete musical genusis.
Kat does have a hott looking body though, that is if you're into looking at Zombie like women.

Real guitar players may want to skip out on this one however, and spend your $4.50 on your next set of strings; you'll probably get more entertainment out of putting them on your guitar anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible! Whoever called her the greatest? April 12, 2012
By Pixies
Format:DVD
Yes, unique, 20 years ago. Now she looks like a used up groupie, the videos have zero creativity, and her music is lacking any real soul. How old is she now? 50? Then I give her credit for the speed at her age. She sucks otherwise.
Greatest eh? Where, in a back alley of nyc? Thats right, I forgot she has all those lame, losers she keeps around to feed her ego. Lol her fan base!

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth the money
Don't waste your money. The music- if you can call it that- sounds like a bunch of senseless noise. The short videos are a joke. I was very disappointed.
