Holy Moses
Redefined Mayhem
Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: 28 April, 2014
Playing time: 46:08

Another Holy Moses album and again some new members in the line-up. The only stabil factor is Sabina Classen of course. She still shouts everything together with her aggressive harsh style. If you are not yet 20 years old and still think that Angela Grossow was the first woman with a grunting voice, you are mistaken. Together with Dawn Crosby she, Sabina Classen, was one of the first.

All the songs sound aggressive and are stable thrash songs. The musicians do a good job and the guitar work and riffs of Peter Geltat see to it that the album is just above average. The tempo of the majority is rather fast, but fortunately they slow down a bit for the necesarry variation. "Undead Dogs" for example is a mid tempo song in which the groovy riffs carry the track. After that one of the strongest songs on the album follows; "Into the Dark" is again a slower track with a nice groove and tempo. The music still has the old school early German thrash as a base, but with the modern production and the fanatism of Sabina Classen this is again an album that can compete with the strong competition in the thrash scene. I saw the band live last year and Sabina (don't know for sure she was still sober...) who is already 50 years old, still runs and jumps the stage up and down and even surfs above the crowd. A good example for the younger genre, you are as old as you behave.

Perhaps not the best, but still ahead of a lot.
