      2. Holy Moses thanks for the great time at Wacken Open Air

      We would like to thank you for a great show art the Wacken Open Air. We had a great time and enjoyed playing for all of you. You can find some pictures of the show in the Photos section of our official site and also in our MySpace site.

       

      3. First "Agony of Death" reviews:

      The media and the scene is starting to talk about "Agony of Death" and here are some examples of the first reviews:

       

      "German thrash metal band Holy Moses is making a statement with their latest album Agony of Death. Along with Sabina Classen and the rest of the band, this five piece band is releasing one of their most diverse albums to date.

      For almost thirty years Holy Moses has been playing their blend of thrash metal, which is very unique for one reason. Vocalist Sabina Classen is one of the few female lead singers in the thrash metal genre. Her voice is really unique; there are times when you’d swear that a guy was belting out vocals like this. Classen has one of the better voices in the thrash metal scene today.

      All of the songs on this album are well written. Lyrically these songs are just as strong as something you’d hear on a symphony metal album, epic and full of adventure. Having lyrics like this on a thrash metal album only make it that much better. Not only are the lyrics written well you have some strong thrash outgoings.

      The team of Michael Hankel and Oliver Jaath are a great team when it comes to guitar work on a thrash album. All of the tracks are full of fast and furious riffs and solos. These two have managed to keep this up for the entire release, something that you don’t always hear on recent thrash albums.

      Atomic Steiff (drums) and Thomas Neitsch (bass) both lend their skills real nicely. Without their contribution the album would not be as heavy. Steiff could very well be one of the best drummers in the thrash metal scene today. He really does make this album that much better, you need to listen to believe.

      Final Verdict
      Holy Moses is once again proving why they are a force in the thrash metal scene. Agony of Death is a non stop rollercoaster from the first word Sabina Classen belts out. Defiantly check this album out if you are a fan of thrash music.

      "When you think of great german thrash, you must include Holy Moses.
      They have been killing people for years and there is no sign of them slowing down.
      Believe it or die”. 

      Gary Holt (Exodus)

       

      "Holy Moses has been crushing the metal scene for almost 30 years with their brutal thrash metal. The band did not surrender even in the hardest times for metal and they have managed to create aggressive and brain-crushing albums. Now they are back with what I think is their best album ever: "Agony of Death". This is a band that deserves to be among the Top 5 of thrash metal with bands like Slayer, Destruction and Kreator. And this new album will be reminded in the feature as a classic of 21st century thrash metal. This is with no doubt one of the top albums of 2008 !!!”. 

      Federico Marongiu (Music Extreme zine - Argentina ).

       

      "Seit fast 30 Jahren Thrash Metal der allerhöchsten Klasse, gepaart mit der unglaublichen Röhre unserer allseitsgeliebten Sabina. Holy Moses haben wahrlich Geschichte geschrieben und sind ein nicht wegzudenkender Teil der Szene. Ich hoffe auf noch viele gemeinsame Gigs und Parties: Thrash Metal will never die!"

      Gerre/Tankard
