Formed in early '80s, KAT had become biggest metal band behind the Iron Curtain for the whole decade. Their debut album, "Metal and Hell", was released internationally on Ambush Records (which went bankrupt soon after). Unfortunately, due to political reasons, the band was never allowed to leave Poland for European tour. They played a lot in Eastern Europe though, including two spectacular shows with METALLICA on their "Master of Puppets" tour, as well as shows with IRON MAIDEN, MOTÖRHEAD, HANOI ROCKS and others. Their blackened thrash metal had huge impact on growing metal scene in Poland; KAT is so far the only Polish metal band that was honored with a tribute album featuring such acts as VADER, BEHEMOTH, LUCIFERION and LUX OCCULTA.
