Info:

Saxon are an English heavy metal band which formed in 1976, in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. As front-runners of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, they had eight UK Top 40 albums in the 1980s including four UK Top 10 albums and two Top 5 albums. The band also had numerous singles in the UK Singles Chart and chart success all over Europe and Japan, as well as success in the USA. Between 1980 and 1987 Saxon established themselves as one of Europe's biggest metal acts. They still tour regularly and have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Saxon have also influenced many bands such as Metallica and Megadeth.Somewhere around South Yorkshire, UK there was a band that started life as SOB during 1976 with founder members Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson. This band joined forces with another local band, Coast, featuring Biff Byford on vocals and Paul Quinn on guitar. The two bands then finalised with a line-up comprising of the then 26 year old Graham 'Oly' Oliver, Steve 'Dobby' Dawson (27), Paul 'Blute' Quinn (26), Pete 'Frank' Gill (27) and Peter 'Biff' Byford (27). The name of the band was Son Of A Bitch. That name was dropped a few years later and the band re-christened themselves SAXON. They were at this time playing the usual rock clubs and concert gigs supporting The Ian Gillan Band and Heavy Metal Kids, amongst others, playing all their own material. Demo tapes were recorded at Tapestry Studios, with producer John Verity (Ex. Argent singer/guitarist). They hawked these round the usual record companies only to be ignored as the New-wave was at its height at this time. After a few months the band finally gained a favourable reaction from EMI man Peter Hinton. He had come up to Barnsley to see the band play at the town's Civic Hall. He was very impressed and recommended SAXON to Claude Carrere as candidates for his new label on the British scene, Carrere Records. Claude decided to offer them a contract, after hearing the band's demo tapes.Saxon released their nineteenth studio album, Call to Arms, on 3 June 2011. It debuted at number 6 on the UK Rock Albums chart. The band embarked on a world tour which saw them visit the US; Saxon also revisited the UK for a second leg of the tour. The band announced on their Call To Arms tour that a number of fans at each venue each paying £10 would be able to watch them soundcheck. This was donated to the Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Childline charities.In December, Byford joined Metallica on stage to perform "Motorcycle Man" for the band's 30th anniversary show. Saxon were billed as special guests supporting Judas Priest at Hammersmith Apollo on 26 May 2012. Saxon also played Download Festival 2012, and were recorded playing "Wheels Of Steel" for the festival's Highlights show shown on Sky Arts. On 13 February 2012, the band announced that they were releasing a new live DVD and CD package entitled Heavy Metal Thunder - Live: Eagles Over Wacken, which compiled their 2004, 2007 and 2009 performances at the Wacken Open Air across various formats. In March, Saxon won the Metal Hammer 2012 Golden God award for 'Best UK band'.In October 2012, the band announced that their next studio album would be titled Sacrifice and it was released on 25 February 2013. On 11 December 2012 Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie saw an international release and was the first Blu-ray release for the band.

Album:

Rock the Nations is the eighth studio album by heavy metal band Saxon released in 1986 (see 1986 in music).The album is the first not to feature original bassist Steve Dawson, who had left the band earlier in 1986. For the recording of this album, vocalist Biff Byford recorded all the bass parts in Dawson's place. However, Paul Johnson joined the band as bassist before the album was released and is therefore credited in the liner notes. Elton John is featured on the songs "Party Til You Puke" and "Northern Lady".Rock The Nations received mixed reviews from critics. Eduardo Rivadavia of Allmusic gave the album two stars out of five and said in his review for the band's previous album Innocence Is No Excuse that "Saxon's internal chemistry was significantly unbalanced by the subsequent departure of key songwriter [Steve] Dawson -- a loss from which they would take years to fully recover." in his review for this album, he said that although the album was "graced with a somewhat rougher sound more in line with the band's New Wave of British Heavy Metal early years" it was still "arguably less heavy than its predecessor" and also criticised the songs "We Came Here To Rock", "Running Hot" and the title track for being "cliché-ridden" and "Waiting For The Night" and "Northern Lady" for being "unconvincingly sappy ballads", though he did regard "Party 'til You Puke" as being "good for a laugh" and also of interest for the guest appearance of Elton John. However, he concluded that the album is one that "the Saxon faithful would likely rather forget".All songs written and composed by Biff Byford, Paul Quinn, Graham Oliver and Nigel Glockler, except where noted.

Album:

Solid Ball of Rock is the tenth studio album by heavy metal band Saxon released in 1990.Five of the 11 tracks on Solid Ball of Rock were written by new bassist Nibbs Carter, who co-wrote an additional three songs.This album is way the fucking Hell better than the last album. Suckstiny, I mean that was just pure crap. This is only halfway to pure crap, and in fact the first few songs are completely excellent!!The title track starts things off, and man this is a fun catchy song. "The preacher found redemption in a Jacksonville motel..." - then Altar of the Gods is classic Saxon, at 100% strength. Requiem is a bit slower, but still very good, as is Lights in the Sky."I Just Can't Get Enough" is a bit cheesier, but still solid. A little 80s-rock influence, coming from their last N albums, but then again this isn't all that far removed from Wheels of Steel or something in the general 80s-metal vibe. Nice chorus, too."Baptism of Fire" is the obligatory speed metal offering, and is probably the highlight of the album - either this or the title track. This one reminds me of "Sixth Form Girls" from their very strong (arm of the law) second album.Here is where the album takes a fucking nosedive... "Ain't Gonna Take It" is crap that combines the worst of two or three Saxon songs that I can't remember... sounds like a leftover from the Destinshit album. "I'm on Fire" is a bit better but they blatantly rip off a solo from a Boston song. I forget which, but it's readily obvious, and it's one of the classic rock staple songs... can't miss it. "Refugee" is more crap, unfortunately. "Bavarian Beaver" is a bit of a noodle bit, and then "Crash Dive" - not bad, and a good closer track. Nice riff after the chorus.So this album totally takes a sinker about halfway through, but the first six songs are all excellent, and for that the album is possibly worth having. If you like some of the more rockish Saxon albums (not the really bad ones like Destiny or Elton John the Nations, but I mean Power and the Glory), you'll like this one.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the British Metal rockers' 1984 album including nine bonus tracks. Crusader was produced by Kevin Beamish at Sound City in Los Angeles (a far cry from their South Yorkshire roots!). According to singer Biff Byford, "We were trendsetters back then. Today, everybody from Trivium onwards dresses like knights going to the crusades, and writes lyrics about it. But back then it was virtually unheard of for a Metal band to do anything like that." As well as previously unavailable demo versions of the album's 'A Little Bit of What You Fancy', 'Sailing to America', a cover of the Sweet's 'Set Me Free' and the title track, this edition now includes the rare tracks 'Borderline' and 'Helter Skelter'. EMI. 2009. Crusader is the sixth studio album by the heavy metal band Saxon released in 1984. The album sold over 2 million copies.Of the title of the album and the title track, bassist Steve Dawson has said that "In England, there's a paper called the Daily Express, and on the logo at the top of the paper, there's a crusader, and there was a car made by Ford called a Cortina Crusader. That's what started it off. We just liked the name "Crusader". We didn't have any connotations of what it meant as far as history goes, but we just liked the name "Crusader", so we just wrote the lyrics to fit the title, really."The album reached No. 1 in the metal charts in Sweden, France and Germany. It also charted in the U.S. Billboard chart.

Bio:

Saxon are an English heavy metal band which formed in 1976, in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. As front-runners of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, they had eight UK Top 40 albums in the 1980s including four UK Top 10 albums and two Top 5 albums. The band also had numerous singles in the UK Singles Chart and chart success all over Europe and Japan, as well as success in the USA. Between 1980 and 1987 Saxon established themselves as one of Europe's biggest metal acts. They still tour regularly and have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Saxon have also influenced many bands such as Metallica and Megadeth.Somewhere around South Yorkshire, UK there was a band that started life as SOB during 1976 with founder members Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson. This band joined forces with another local band, Coast, featuring Biff Byford on vocals and Paul Quinn on guitar. The two bands then finalised with a line-up comprising of the then 26 year old Graham 'Oly' Oliver, Steve 'Dobby' Dawson (27), Paul 'Blute' Quinn (26), Pete 'Frank' Gill (27) and Peter 'Biff' Byford (27). The name of the band was Son Of A Bitch. That name was dropped a few years later and the band re-christened themselves SAXON. They were at this time playing the usual rock clubs and concert gigs supporting The Ian Gillan Band and Heavy Metal Kids, amongst others, playing all their own material. Demo tapes were recorded at Tapestry Studios, with producer John Verity (Ex. Argent singer/guitarist). They hawked these round the usual record companies only to be ignored as the New-wave was at its height at this time. After a few months the band finally gained a favourable reaction from EMI man Peter Hinton. He had come up to Barnsley to see the band play at the town's Civic Hall. He was very impressed and recommended SAXON to Claude Carrere as candidates for his new label on the British scene, Carrere Records. Claude decided to offer them a contract, after hearing the band's demo tapes.Saxon released their nineteenth studio album, Call to Arms, on 3 June 2011. It debuted at number 6 on the UK Rock Albums chart. The band embarked on a world tour which saw them visit the US; Saxon also revisited the UK for a second leg of the tour. The band announced on their Call To Arms tour that a number of fans at each venue each paying £10 would be able to watch them soundcheck. This was donated to the Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Childline charities.In December, Byford joined Metallica on stage to perform "Motorcycle Man" for the band's 30th anniversary show. Saxon were billed as special guests supporting Judas Priest at Hammersmith Apollo on 26 May 2012. Saxon also played Download Festival 2012, and were recorded playing "Wheels Of Steel" for the festival's Highlights show shown on Sky Arts. On 13 February 2012, the band announced that they were releasing a new live DVD and CD package entitled Heavy Metal Thunder - Live: Eagles Over Wacken, which compiled their 2004, 2007 and 2009 performances at the Wacken Open Air across various formats. In March, Saxon won the Metal Hammer 2012 Golden God award for 'Best UK band'.In October 2012, the band announced that their next studio album would be titled Sacrifice and it was released on 25 February 2013. On 11 December 2012 Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie saw an international release and was the first Blu-ray release for the band.

Album:

Some classic SAXON albums is its remastered / extra tracks edition have been requested here, so let's start with the band's terrific fourth LP. "Denim And Leather [Remastered, Extra Tracks Edition]" features no less than 9 bonus tracks, including single B-sides, a killer 1981 show and a complete booklet in the Rock Candy fashion with rare photos and liner notes by specialist Malcolm Dome in cooperation with Biff Byford.Saxon's "Denim And Leather" is a true classic which caught the band at an early commercial and creative peak, and features the classic singles ‘Princess Of The Night’, ‘Never Surrender’ and a tribute to their appearance at the first Castle Donington Festival (now Download), ‘And The Bands Played On’.Saxon pumped out plenty of great, punchy heavy metal tunes during the early '80s. It's what they specialised in. The songs were consistently melodic heavy and enjoyable to listen to, and this particular album captures Saxon at the height of their creativity.From start to finish, "Denim And Leather" has plenty of great moments to be cherished by any classic rock fan, and has influenced many bands in years to come.‘Princess Of The Night’ is a midtempo heavy song about trains (not quite what the title may imply) and carries a fantastic chorus chorus. There are certain riffs that may remind you of some early Metallica songs, and those guys, particularly Lars Ulrich, did indeed take a lot of influence from NWOBHM bands.'Never Surrender' is about soldiering on past the obstacles in your way, and serves as a fist pumping motivational song with its chants of "Never surrender!" in the chorus. A true anthem.The title track is possibly the best song on the album. It may slow down the tempo a bit, but the pounding drums are so powerful and is a great accompaniment to an anthem that is about the heavy metal subculture. It's the closest the band gets to arena rock on this album, and anybody who is fond of classic metal is bound to go crazy over this song. It's easy to fall in love with.Another favorite of mine, "And the Bands Played On" is another classic, influenced by Saxon's performance at a music festival alongside other hard rock and heavy metal acts, and the reactions and the feelings among the audience members, sitting through varied weather conditions just to catch their favorite bands. It's something of an hymn for rock and metal music festivals worldwide, and the overwhelming passion of the fans going there.There are some other great moments on the album like 'Out of Control', 'Rough and Ready' and 'Play It Loud' which have a more hard rock influence in terms sound, yet they stand well with the more "metal" songs such as the ones listed above. "Play it Loud" is simply about fighting for your right to blast out hard rocking music despite the urges you get from others to turn it down. It may seem ridiculously clichéd now, but in the '80s these lyrics ruled.This remastered reissue includes a bunch of juicy bonus tracks in the form of the B-sides '20,000 Ft. [Remix]' and 'Bap Shoo Ap [Live 1980]', plus songs recorded during the Denim And Leather Tour, taped at different shows like the Hammersmith Odeon, Rainbow, etc.All worthy material."Denim And Leather" is the definition of early '80s British heavy metal, for me the best Saxon ever. It's a classic, and its influence on later bands cannot be denied.This is a really complete - and I must must say, definitive - remastered reissue, with a terrific sound and excellent packaging.

Album:

Parlophone is releasing "The Complete Albums 1979-1988" from British legends SAXON, a limited edition 10-CD box set featuring digitally remastered and expanded editions of the pioneer metal band studio albums from the period between 1979 and 1988, including Saxon, Wheels of Steel, Strong Arm of the Law, Denim and leather, The Eagle has Landed, Power and the Glory, Crusader, Innocence is No Excuse, Rock the Nations and Destiny.Apart from the original albums remastered and with cardboard sleeves that replicate the original front and back artwork of the vinyl LP's, you have 67 BONUS tracks of B-sides, live cuts and rarities.Innocence Is No Excuse is the seventh studio album by heavy metal band Saxon released in 1985. It was the group's first album for EMI after a falling-out with their previous label, Carrere Records, and their last with original bassist Steve Dawson.I have chosen from the bunch 1985's "Innocence Is No Excuse", one of the most commercial sounding Saxon albums ever and one that questioned the band's 'street-level credibility'. Well, at least when released, because now "Innocence Is No Excuse" is considered by many (including rabid fans) the strongest record in Saxon's discography.This is my favorite Saxon album of all time. It's more commercial than the previous NWOBHM material and the in-between radio-friendly sound from the '80s / '90s."Innocence Is No Excuse" is 'arena rocking' in formula and has a polished production job, but still retaining its heavy metal roots: the best of both worlds.The glossy production with the guitars and their crystalline sustain, the fat bass lines and drums echo louder than ever, enhanced the best written pack of songs included into a Saxon album since its foundation. It's a vast sound that increases the scope and atmosphere. At the forefront, Byford's lead vocals are not only more fine-tuned, but they're actually singing catchy choruses.From the cryptic opening of "Rockin' Again" to the cheerful "Back On The Streets" and to the spirited "Everybody Up" (used in the 1985 Italian horror movie Demoni), this is like listening to a re-invigorated band.There's not a single weak song on this album, all are great, but if I have to highlight one, the midtempo "Broken Heroes" is probably my favorite Saxon song ever.Of all the gloomy, solemn songs this band wrote, this one is the best at capturing its themes without compromising the music. Byford's sullen delivery is exemplary, as well as the accompanying guitar leads that ring fervently with that clean distortion. Behind it all is Glockler's artillery-loud pounding, as well as the flabby bass gliding along with it. Such an intense song with an infectious chorus to match.If you never heard Saxon's "Innocence Is No Excuse" you're missing a great '80s album. This is a great opportunity to ride into it as the remaster is awesome, and the 6 bonuses a very nice addition including the fantastic "Back On The Streets (12'' Club Mix)"."The Complete Albums 1979-1988" is a highly recommended purchase to re-discover this talented band, and if you're a fan and don't yet have the separate remasters, get this box pronto because it's out at a really nice price and you would pay a lot more for them separately.
