Kat is a Polish heavy metal band formed in 1979. For years, they have been accused, mainly by the Polish media, of promoting Satanism.
KAT is one of the most important Polish heavy metal bands and is also regarded as one of the main precursors of thrash and even black metal genres in this country.
KAT's most famous album “Oddech wymarlych swiatow” is considered an opus of Polish heavy metal.
“Acoustic – 8 filmow” features the collection of their most interesting ballads in surprising new arrangements.
The band used instruments hardly ever associated with this genre. You can hear here the harpsichord, cello, piano, and oriental instruments, as well as orchestral bells and timpani. The album was produced by Piotr Witkowski, known for his work with the biggest composers from Hollywood.
