Extreme Guitar Shred

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.
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.
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.
I play guitar myself, and yes the Kat could blow me away with her musical knowledge, but...... would it kill her to play a simple riff? I mean a guitar player has to have some meat and potatoes to go along with 1000 note a minute solos. A good heavy, crunchy, three chord riff is just as important. But I guess that's not really The Kat's style. Thankfully she is carryig the torch in an age where guitar solos are all but dead. This video is nothing short of frenzied soloing. I wonder if she even touches the low E or A strings on these songs. Her version of Beethoven's Fifth is awesome, she should have included that on here. It was brutal, and proves she can play power chords.
I was disappointed with her 'live' footage. I thought it would be a live performance of a song. Instead it's footage pieced together from one concert. So it's actually her playing live on stage as you listen to a studio song. I wanted some raw Kat, but it's more of a 'highlights' real from her Chicago show.
The WAR video is interesting with her all in camoflauge, and I like her American Tribute video, she's really hot in that American flag bikini. Castration is cool too because she dresses up as a belly dancer and a geisha.
For those not sure if they are interested in Kat, they may want to check this out. This DVD is really nothing more than a 15 minute sampling of what the Kat is all about, if you like it, great, look deeper and get some CDs.Read more ›

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? Read morePublished on April 12, 2012 by Pixies
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. Read morePublished on April 26, 2011 by Snailhead

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.Published on February 16, 2006 by R. A. Spencer
