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:

A true lost gem of the 80's new wave of heavy metal. Saxon at Donnington is a great representation of the new wave of british heavy metal that began in the eighties. There is no doubt that Saxon,along with other bands (Motorhead /Iron Maiden), led the way and influenced a generation that followed.Saxon at Donnington is a great representation of the new wave of british heavy metal that began in the eighties. There is no doubt that Saxon,along with other bands (Motorhead /Iron Maiden), led the way and influenced a generation that followed. To see Saxon live was a breath taking event that I personally witnessed on several occassions. They are the unsung metal heroes of the eighties that many bands, such as Metallica, even credit as a very important influence. The quality of this release is marred only because it sounds as if this recording had been shelved for so long. Obviously forgotten and that is unfortunate for listeners. It would have been worth the expense for the label of this CD to have spent a little added time to clean up this recording with the convience of modern 1990's technology. Otherwise this is a stellar performance by one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time. If you are a true metal fan you should own this for the point that it is Saxon! The oddity of this disc is a track called "Bap Shoo Ap" which, as far as I know, is not on any Saxon album from that time period. Also, track 10 indicates "backstage interviews" but curiously there are no interviews. My guess is this CD might have been rushed, which explains sound quality and fair packaging. But any true metal fan will still appreciate the passion in Saxon's powerful performance.
