Gerd about joining Holy Moses: "As an old Moses fan, it is naturally a honor for me to do the drumming for this pioneer thrash metal band! The recordings are being really powerful and we blow away all the material live!"
In case you haven't heard, Dew-Scented parted ways with guitarist Martin Walczak late last year. The band has however found a temporarily replacement just in time for their European Tour with Nile later this month: Michael Hankel of Holy Moses will be taking over rhythm guitar duties for the tour.
Commented Dew-Scented: "We have known Michi for several years now and are certain he will compliment the band in a great way for the coming shows!"
Michael "Michi" Hankel added: "I am proud to let you know that I am joining Dew-Scented for their upcoming European Tour. I have liked these guys and their material since many years and in my opinion Dew-Scented are a real challenge for all Thrash Metallers. Their songs are sounding heavy now and will kick you right in the face... I am truly looking forward to meeting you all on this amazing tour!"
Long-running German thrashers Holy Moses have checked in with the following band update:
"The year 2010 has not yet ended, but we like to take the chance to give you a short overview.

In a recent interview with BW&BK, HOLY MOSES vocalist/founder Sabina Classen discussed how the hidden track 'Im Wagen Vor Mir', featuring a duet between Classen and SODOM frontman Tom Angelripper, came about:
"That's an old German schlager song from the '80's, and we did it as a joke. At the last Wacken Open Air, me and Tom were drunk as always and we started singing that song backstage, just fooling around. It's a song about a guy who sees a nice looking girl in the car ahead of him and he's describing her and all that stuff, and she's singing about the ugly guy driving behind her and 'What does he want?'. I got the idea one evening at the studio to record it and when it was done I sent the files to Tom and asked him to sing on it. He was like, 'Hey, it's the song from Wacken! Cool! (laughs)."
"HOLY MOSES, the long-running German thrash outfit fronted by Sabina Classen, have signed a new record deal with Armageddon Music. A new studio album is tentatively scheduled for release next spring/summer.
HOLY MOSES' last album, "Disorder of the Order", was released in 2002 via Century Media Records.
Armageddon Music will release the new album worldwide!"
