HOLY MOSES Unleash New Single / Video "Cult Of The Machine"

2023 will mark the final chapter in the long history of Germany’s legendary thrash metal act, Holy Moses, celebrated with the bands upcoming new studio album Invisible Queen (available April 14) and a last run of live shows.

Today, the band releases their new single and video clip for the song "Cult Of The Machine".

Sabina Classen: "The song alludes to The New Machine of Liechtenstein. A fanatical cult has formed around the machine, which is now finally being smashed and destroyed in order to bring humanity out of the darkness again."

"Invisible Queen" video:

"My farewell album for the Final Reign Tour contains everything that made Holy Moses special in the past 43 years. Vocally, I was overflowing with energy and felt like I was transported back to the 80s. We have always written songs that we ourselves like and never compromised on trends or conceded to wrong expectations, especially with this final album. We aren’t out to please everyone; we are our own brand and have our own sound, which includes odd meters, technically demanding passages, and unusual chord structures as well as interesting lyrics that deal with the dark side of humanity and the human psyche", comments Sabina Classen.
