The current line-up consisting of vocalist Sabina Classen, guitarist Peter Geltat, bassist Thomas Neitschand drummer Gerd Lücking is ready to face new challenges in a permanently evolving metal genre. "This is HOLY MOSES mark 2014, andRedefined 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 Holy Moses continue to be a force to be reckoned with."
Last autumn, HOLY MOSES recorded a total of 13 new tracks at Sabina Classen and Thomas Neitsch's own studio (Neitsch also handled production duties on the album). 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 withHOLY 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."
