KAT - The Last Cowboy (Review by David Kiss )

Heavy Metal breathes throughout the world in the same way, with influences depending on the place where it is composed, but with similar similarities, whether from England, the USA or Japan, but in this case Kat come from Poland, nothing to do with the guitarist Kat the eccentric guitarist !!, distributed by a German label, we got her new album "The Last Convoy".
From the first song "Satan´s Nights" it is clear that if your tastes are classic heavy metal with Judas Priest tints, you will continue to listen to them. Versions of Scorpions "Blackout", AC / DC "You Shook Me All Night ...", Deep Purple "Highway Star", are already telling you what kind of influences they have, apart from the stellar collaboration of Tim Owens singer of bands like Judas Priest, Iced Earth and Yngwie Malmsteen in the sixth song titled "Flying Fire 2020" ...
It is a good album but if you are looking for themes that motivate and get out of the stereotypes, pay attention to "Dark Hole-The Habitat", a brutal mid-tempo, with a transmission of emotions, palpable in all its composition in addition to the collaboration of the pianist Paweł Steczek giving a nice harmony at the end of the song.
