I have had the CD in my car for the past 3 weeks and given it a fair few plays in that time. Guardians of the Tomb is the clear standout track and I would go as far as to say it is up in my top 10...

Denim and Leather Tour was magical.

The formal intro leading straight into 'Bands Played On' was too good to believe. This was my golden era for gigs in general and metal was at a high point.

I have played the album through several times in my car. I think it is better than Into the Labyrinth and on a par with The Inner Sanctum. Some of the songs seem to be aimed at sounding like other...

Brilliant stats.
It probably shows how the NWOBHM suffered after 84/85 from the influx of hair metal bands from the US.
I would love to know how many albums have been sold globally in recent years....

Brilliant Gig.
You missed out Live to Rock from the setlist.
I agree the sound was good and the audience on top form. It was great to hear Broken Heroes.

My first time seeing the band was on the Bomber tour, December 1st 1979 at Leeds University. I remember the old scarf over the face solo and Biff messing around with a knife (ironically).

ITL Tour 2009 - UK Dates

It looks like the UK shows are a bit thin on the ground. The only date I am likely to make is Wolverhampton. It is a shame Leicester or Nottingham are not on the radar. Could more vdates be added?

Does anyone know how well the new album has sold? I know from my own experience that all traditonal metal is highly uncool in the eyes of the british media and this disease spreads to the...

Phenomenal Gig

The Rock City gig was too good for words. The atmosphere was electric even during Masterplans set and it just continued to get better as the evening wore on.

I was very impressed by songs from the...

Machine Gun is probably difficult to slot into the set with all its effects.

Personally i love 'Still Fit To Boogie', dated but classic.

Fav Tracks

I love the moody intros but for sheer dynamics and meaning i like Red Star Falling and the melody of Ashes to Ashes. However there is not a bad track on the whole album, so roll on Nottingham Rock...

First Saxon Gig

Hi it seems like many fans are getting behind the band, all positive stuff.

My first gig was at Leeds University where the band supported Motorhead on the Bomber Tour, 1st December 1979! Basically...

Selective with the truth

What got me about the programme was that to make it work they had to be very selective about how they portrayed the band. They could not show Wakken because that would have left people scratching...
