Holy Moses picTwo years ago, 30th Anniversary – In The Power Of Now saw close a chapter of their history; now they are setting the course for the future: Germany’s most eminent thrash metal act are about to launch their latest studio recording, Redefined Mayhem, will be released on April 29th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer.  The current line-up consisting of vocalist Sabina Classen, guitarist Peter Geltat, bassist Thomas Neitsch and drummer Gerd Lücking is ready to face new challenges in a permanently evolving metal genre. “This is mark 2014, and Redefined Mayhem defines a new chapter of our band history, proving also to our numerous young fans that we are one hundred per cent in the here and now,” explains Sabina Classen, adding: “We had to redefine ourselves as a band and gel as a team. There were people who voiced their doubts that it would work. But the new songs prove beyond all doubt that continue to be a force to be reckoned with.”

Redefined Mayhem was mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Extol) in Denmark. Classen: “From the beginning, Tue really wanted to work with HOLY MOSES, he told us that our songs had provided the musical accompaniment to his adolescence and that he’d be proud to mix our new record.”

HOLY MOSES’ fans can expect a contemporary thrash metal offering which reflects the band members’ influence while skillfully forging an arch to the group’s successful past with classics such as Finished With The Dogs (1987) and The New Machine Of Liechtenstein (1989). Classen: “It’s still first-rate thrash metal, fast-paced and powerful, chaotic at times but with a modern touch and amazingly multi-faceted guitars and drums.”
