Holy Moses - Finished With The Dogs
After the debut "Queen Of Siam" (which should be released on CD, please) followed the second work "Finished With The Dogs" of the Thrash-hopefuls HOLY MOSES from Aachen. Those piece surprised the whole scene.

Somewhere between LIVING DEATH, NUCLEAR ASSAULT and VOIVOD, this album still offers Thrash with class. Songs like the titletrack with its great chorus, the killing "Current Of Death" (highlight!), which reminds pretty of LIVING DEATH in their "Back To The Weapons" period, the slower, gloomy "Fortress Of Desperation", the hectical, varied "Corroded Dreams" or the punky, very catchy "Life's Destroyer" belong all to the best, what the Thrash hell ever left.

Also the production of Ralph Hubert (maybe better known with his pseudonymous Björn Eklund/MEKONG DELTA) is good and the coverartwork is perfect. On this record was also a young drummer involved, who later became famous with GAMMA RAY and HELLOWEEN: Uli Kusch (now MASTERPLAN). (Online February 23, 2003)
