'Katya' - Album: 'Promo EP' - Genre: 'Rock' - Release Date: '2006' Our Rating: 9 out of 10 stars
Russian-born Katya strives for the throne of Rock Goddess on this three-track promo sampler, and I wouldn't be surprised if she's annointed a year from now. With guitars smoking and burning amps into volcanic ash, Katya creates her own heavy-metal thunder with a solid grip on melodic pop textures and bluesy fury. The opening cut, "Bitch & Moan," is an anthem for any struggling rock star. It may be misinterpreted a feminist diatribe, but it's actually a slamming statement of frustration delivered with crunchy, distorted riffs and a knockout lead vocal. What an exhilarating rocker it is. "Another rock star on TV/another notch against me," she spits bitterly, guitars blowing everything to smithereens. "JLY" is an instrumental featuring the hyperkinetic drum work of star guest Stephen Perkins of Jane's Addiction. Katya covers Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz," showing her magnificent range and own vocal punch.

Katya seems to have a single goal: To rattle your speakers until they tumble to the rug, leaving fire stains in its path. There aren't enough female rockers these days, and I'm not including the punk wanna-be's in that category. Katya is no punk. Although her music is fairly aggressive, and "Bitch & Moan" has enough Fetchin' Bones -styled femme rage to attract mohawks in the crowd, it is pure rock & roll. If Katya belonged to any period of Women In Rock, I'd compare her to Heart at their most punchy ("Barracuda") and Janis Joplin, whose "Mercedes Benz" Katya covers here. Katya can shout like the best of them, but the ferocious guitar playing on display here jettisons indie amateur hour for a meaty, two-fisted attack.
