Before Sabina got married to Andy Classen her full name was Sabina Hirtz, born in 1963 in Germany and still lives here. First vokills for Holy Moses did she in 1981 when she joined the band after vocalist Iggy left. Before this Sabina played bass in a local band called Desaster where also Andy came from before he joined Holy Moses.
Sabina was active with Holy Moses from 1981 till 1994 when she left the band and formed Temple of the Absurd, a more darker sounding band than Holy Moses. Two albums were released by Temple of the Absurd, a self titled album in 1995 and Mother, Creator, God in 1999.
In 2000 Temple of the Absurd split up and Sabina joined Holy Moses again and the band takes on a more modern sounding aggressive thrash/death metal instead of playing old school thrash.
Sabina is good friends with Doro and did in 2008 some backing vocals on the Celebrate EP and in 2009 on the Fear no Evil album. Sabina provided in 2010 her vokills for two tracks on the Burden of Grief album Follow the Flames and also did some signing on the 2007 album The Crossfire from Fall of Serenity. Earlier, back in 1990, she provided backing vocals on a song from Howlin’ Mad on their Insanity album. Later in 1992 she did one song for the Warpath album When War Begins… Truth Disappears. Onkel Tom Angelripper also needed some guest vocals on the 1998 album Ein Tröpfchen voller Glück so Sabina went in the studio with him. We continue with Powergod in 2001 where Sabina did guest vocals on the That’s Metal Lesson I – Bleed for the Gods album. In 2005 Reckless Tide needed some guest vocals so we can hear Sabina on the Repent or Seal Your Fate album and the last one i know of is Izegrim, Congress of the Insane from 2013 where Sabina did guest vokills on the song Carousel of Death.
Sometimes Sabina does some production work and/or lay out design but mostly she works for record/promotion companies. She used to be involved in West Virginia Records as a owner but that label is closed since 1993 after 33 releases. Back in 1988 she moderated the German heavy metal television show Mosh which was quite populair back then.
