Holy Moses - Disorder Of The Order
"Disorder Of The Order" is the first, full-length album of HOLY MOSES after their reunion. Positively to mention are the vocals of front-shouter Sabina in comparison with their Mini-CD "Master Of Disaster", it's less Black Metal-like but it orientates more on the glorious 80s ("Finished With The Dogs").

In fact, I still wait for the definitive follower of "Current Of Death", but until then, this record is good, too (apart from the intro, that belongs more to bands like CRADLE OF PILS but not to HOLY MOSES). But after that, the band rocks straight forward.

"We Are At War" is a great thrasher, the title track has something of "GUN'S N MOSES", and the theme of the lead guitar, that is pulled through the whole song, is just strong. "Break The Evil" is a breaker again, while "Deeper" with its staccato-riffs reminds more of a mixture of SLAYER and old ANNIHILATOR. Apropos ANNIHILATOR and staccato-riffs: if Jeff Waters would record a Thrash Metal-CD, the result would be sound like this album here.

Altogether, all songs are well-made, heavy as fuck, tight as a duck's ass and they have great choruses, to join singing, alike as it should be. The exception is maybe "Verfolgungswahn", which would belong better to Sabinas' former band TEMPLE OF THE ABSURD. At all events, the album looks well between classics like "Finished With The Dogs" and "World Chaos". (Online October 17, 2002)
