Biography

Germany (1980 – present)

Holy Moses is a German band. They are well noted for being fronted by Sabina Classen, which is rare for a woman to be a singer in thrash metal, and for being one of the very first German thrash metal bands.

Holy Moses was officially formed in Aachen, Germany in 1980 with Jochen Funders on guitars and vocals, Ramon Bruessler on bass, and drummer Peter Vordenstein. They played their first live show in the town of Stolberg, where they began causing a significant buzz in the heavy metal community for their incredibly heavy, fast, and tight style and various other actions of the band’s fanclub. However, this lineup was very short lived, and only lasted about a year, after the band played their first anniversary show by opening for Venom.

A new guitarist was soon found, in Andy Classen, formerly of the band Disaster. A vocalist named Iggy was soon found as well. Iggy was soon fired from the band due to drug problems and musical differences with the band. Andy soon came up with the idea to bring in his girlfriend at the time, Sabina Hertz for the vocals. Originally, Sabina does not want the job and singing in a very throaty and almost demonic sounding style of singing to make sure she does not get in the band.

    Near Dark reminds me a lot of Metallica's Master Of Puppets!

    Finished with the Dogs is absolutely fucking vicious. I'd known about Holy Moses for a long time, and knew they had a female vocalist but didn't listen to 'em until now. Those vocals were totally not what I was expecting. My exceptions were shattered into a thousand pieces, and my face slapped a hundred times. What a brilliant record. The New Machine... is pretty sweet too, one of the best examples of thrash drumming on that one.

    If you're looking for some serious amount of brutality and rawness, then you should start with Finished with the Dogs. For more of a progressive album with thrash roots and less rawness & brutality, go with The New Machine of Liechtenstein.

    I tried SPWP, and well, I prefer old school thrash. Which of their early albums will be a good one to start with? (the best, I mean :0)

    The new album is good, the drums are clear and the bass lines are very impressive. But Sabina literally screeches in some songs (for example: the chorus of Hellhound), which I found kind of disturbing. I think she tries to sound like how she did in Master of Disaster EP... Kind of impossible to happen, considering that she's 50 now.
