"Kat forces these melodies through a black hole and back out again through in a white-hot stream of incredibly fine sound particles that ascend and descend so quickly and accurately that one could debate whether the interpretations are a performance or a weapon. For those who have thus far enjoyed the carnival ride of Beethoven Shreds should have no problem putting Kat's statue alongside the greats." - Houston Press
"This is definitely my favorite classical speed metal record of the year." - IGN
"Great Kat, 'Beethoven Shreds': The fleet-fingered British guitarist takes on a variety of classical pieces, including Beethoven's Fifth symphony, a couple of Bach pieces and 'The Flight of the Bumble-Bee.'"
- The Oakland Press
