Majster Kat are a technical, melodic thrash metal band from Slovakia formed in 2001 releasing their debut album in 2007. Their second album was released in 2014.    
             
The album opens with the short instrumental 'Úsvit' before 'Spoveď kňaza' kicks off in blistering style with a mild growled vocal performance and a high tempo rhythm. 'Kto si bez viny' offers more of the same, keeping the pace high, the raw energy high and the melodic side of the song is very catchy. Unable to understand the lyrics as they are sung in the bands native tongue makes no difference to the enjoyment of the music. It is very clear, well polished and of a high production standard.    
             
'Sudca a kat' rides in on what can only be described as a Mexican sounding guitar intro and then storms off in a blazing chug of a riff, as the pace increases to near speed metal pace. Another instrumental follows in the shape of 'Hodnoty' and then the hard rocking 'Podlé slová' stomps in and again races through blistering guitars, base lines and drums as it rampages to a conclusion.    
             
The opening to 'Zlo v nás' is acoustic, with a slow build up, before awesome riffing returns and the song comes alive, racing like a freight train, relentless pace, cracking vocals and some blistering guitar work. 'Zvony' is tinged with industrial metal as it rattles along at an up tempo pace with the epic seven minutes plus album closer 'Na smetisku civilizácie' a roller coaster ride through blistering guitars, thunderous rhythms, and a hauntingly chilling opening with story telling vocals that almost chill the bones.    
             
Overall, a well produced and well polished album full of pace, power and energy. A well balanced mix of rock, metal and melodic thrash.
