HOLY MOSES - Agony Of Death

Holy Moses is a German thrash metal band. They are well noted for being fronted by Sabina Classen (it is rare for a woman to be a singer in thrash metal) and for being one of the very first German thrash metal bands.As far as Sabina Classen is concerned, the title of the current Holy Moses album (their twelfth offering to date) says it all: Agony Of Death, the medical term for the death struggle and common denominator of the recording’s lyrics. “Amazingly, our band has been around for more than twenty years, which means that Holy Moses have been doomed for over two decades, but we’ve persevered,” the vocalist proudly points out, adding: “Life is a fight against death from the first moment. Some people are subjected to violence and abuse even in their childhood and experience this fight from an early age, while for others it may start later, but is no less dramatic.” These considerations are reflected in the lyrics on Agony Of Death. Be it in terms of ambivalent suicidal reflections (‘World In Darkness’), disturbances of memory and blackouts (‘The Cave’), or amnesia (‘Dissociative Disorder’) – it would hardly be possible to deal with this subject matter more intensely and professionally.
