Kat Katz – Brutal Female Metal Vocalists
Kat Katz is the screaming banshee of Massachusetts grind mavens Agoraphobic Nosebleed. After being welcomed into the band, she has since provided vocals for various splits, EPs and their 2009 full-length masterpiece ‘Agorapocalypse.’ As one of three Agoraphobic Nosebleed vocalists, Katz brings a more sharp and sonically piercing scream to the band, delivering an entirely new character into ANb’s music, which is both devastating and captivating.
Katz is also known for her work with Virginian doom metal band Salome. The three-piece formed in 2006, gaining a significant following in the metal underground for their powerful and patient sound, mixed with the high-shrieks and low gutturals of Katz. Unfortunately, Salome split up in 2011, shortly after releasing the critically acclaimed full-length ‘Terminal.’
Still active with Agoraphobic Nosebleed and having contributed to the music of Pig Destroyer, including their upcoming full-length, ‘Book Burner,’ Katz is truly one of metal’s finest vocalists, and deserves the upmost respect as a talent and pioneer for female metal musicians.
