The coming year 2023 will mark the final chapter in the long history of legendary German thrash metal band, Holy Moses, celebrated with the upcoming new studio album “Invisible Queen”, and a final series of live shows.
Vocalist Sabina Classen comments: “I joined Holy Moses in December 1981 and that fundamentally changed the path I was supposed to take in my life. Our first album in 1986 was called “Queen Of Siam”, and now, to top it off, my last album with Holy Moses in 2023 will be titled “Invisible Queen”. After 42 eventful years and after so many great albums, fantastic shows and incredible experiences, the time has come to write the last chapter of Holy Moses. And we’re excited to have this happening through Fireflash Records with the release of our 12th studio album.”
Holy Moses are an established institution in the international metal scene. Their multifaceted thrash metal, the charismatic voice of front-woman Sabina Classen, as well as the mixture of traditional attitudes and experimental development have made the band a permanent fixture since the early eighties. With classics like “Finished With The Dogs” (1987), “The New Machine Of Liechtenstein” (1989), “World Chaos” (1990) or “Terminal Terror” (1991), Holy Moses wrote metal history.
Classen adds: “Throughout 2023 we will be busy promoting Invisible Queen and playing one last series of shows at full intensity. We look forward to seeing you.”
“Invisible Queen” will be released on April 14th, 2023 via Fireflash Records and distributed worldwide by Warner/ADA.
“Holy Moses has never had standard thrash songs and never will be. We write songs that we like ourselves, and don’t compromise on trends or make concessions to false expectations. We don’t have to please everyone, we are our own brand, we have our own sound, including crooked bars, technically demanding passages and unusual chord structures as well as interesting lyrics that deal with the dark sides of people or the human psyche.” she concludes.
