Long-running German thrashers HOLY MOSES have been confirmed for the Monsters Of Rock festival, set to take place August 6, 2006 in Kavarna, Bulgaria. "We are really looking forward for it, 'cause we know we have a lot of fans in Bulgaria and our dreams come true to play for our fans in Bulgaria," the band write on their web site.
As previously reported, HOLY MOSES will perform at the 25th anniversary of metal pub "Schluesseloch" on December 2, 2006 at Saalbau Rothe Erde in Aachen, Germany. Several other bands will appear at the event, which will also coincide with HOLY MOSES' 25-year anniversary.
