Always in the mood for some saxon. Hope the new material will be as good and heavy as their latest outputs.

There should be a poll...what is Saxon's - worst release - lol
They deliver - more so than AC DC ever did.
Biff - is a very strong lyricist- like Ozzy or Halford !

Destiny, and it's not even close. That's just a bad album.

They've been consistent ever since though.

I quite like that one now, not so at it's release, but "Rock the Nations" is still pretty much crap imo...

What?! Destiny is their best work. At least to a person who never cared for Saxon's original muscial endeavors. Destiny sounds like a Magnum's On a Storyteller's Night at times, so it helps the former become listenable, I guess, in my ears. Kind of heavy AOR or something.
Rock the Nations just sucks, on the other hand.

I thought of you all today. Saxon - "Destiny" was released this day in 1988.
I will have to listen to the cd now !
As I typed out the Saxon title....I thought of KISS " "Dynasty" lol
Destiny. Dynasty. Eh hm. Yeah.

definitely a immediate purchase. loved Battering Ram. this album will be just as good.

as far as Saxon's worst album...one word....Destiny.....besides two worthy songs, it's crap. i'm actually fond of Rock the Nations. sure the production kinda sucks but it still has some decent songs on it (except "Party til You Puke"......yeah, the more times i listen to that song i'm gonna puke. LMMAO!).

Destiny is one of their best albums. Never understood the hate for that album.
OTOH, RtN is pretty weak, definately the weakest out of the band's hair metal trilogy. It does have Battle Cry, which is one of their best songs, though.

I can listen to Rock the Nations. It certainly doesn't have the thunder of their first five albums, but it sounds good enough for me. I kind of like the songs and the sound, but I think it just lacks a true gem, like a classic Saxon song (or two).

If Crusader the song was on Rock the Nations, it'd be pretty good already.

Well as I already said, Battle Cry is one of their best songs. At least IMO.

Cool title, pretty cool album cover. And Roadie's Song, that reminds me of the Tenacious D song.

It is an 80's kind of cover in a good way.

5. They Played Rock and Roll

That's their tribute to Motorhead...

Quote :
"Thunderbolt" will feature the song "They Played Rock And Roll", written about and dedicated to MOTÖRHEAD. Byford previously said that he gave the track that title because "that's what Lemmy used to say every night [from the stage]." He added: "It's basically about early MOTÖRHEAD — '79/'80 MOTÖRHEAD, like around 'No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith', 'cause that's the tour we were on, that one. So, yeah, it's about the band, really, and their music."

According to Biff, "They Played Rock And Roll" will be musically similar to Lemmy and Co. He explained: "I asked Nibbs [Carter, SAXON bassist] to write me some music that was like MOTÖRHEAD, and he did. So it sounds very MOTÖRHEAD-ish, but not MOTÖRHEAD, if you know what I mean."
