32 Years Ago: HOLY MOSES release Queen of Siam


HOLY MOSES released their debut LP, Queen of Siam, on this day in 1986.

FLASH!! Just received a two track advance tape from Earthshaker Records. It's by a band called Holy Moses, which consists of Sabina Classen (vocals), Andreas Classen (guitars), Herbert Dreger (drums), and Ramon Brusseler (bass). The two cuts (no titles were given) are from the band's debut release on Earthshaker, which is titled "Queen of Siam". The music seems to be along the lines of black/death metal, with a sound similar to that of Destruction. The LP won't be out until sometime in April, but if you'd like to find out more about the band and/or their LP you can write to Y.U.P. Music, [...], 4630 Bochum, West Germany.
- Rock Hard #8, 1986

The album was originally to be released through Axel Thubeauville's Earthshaker Records, who put out HOLY MOSES first major record, the five-way split Metallic Bunny's Fast Collection in 1985. Earthshaker folded in 1986, but Axel went on to co-found Aaarrg Records in 1986 and Queen of Siam was the first (AAARRG 01) release by the new label. Aaarrg closed in the early nineties.
