The bonus CD has some great tracks.
Steven Thum
We must take advantage of the fact that great Rock bands like Saxon are still on and creating music, and buy the album that is so valuable.
Mario Elizondo Regalado
One of the best albums they released in years!

British heavy metal institution Saxon is back with a new studio album, titled Sacrifice. It's the band's 20th studio album. Think about that for a second. Twenty albums since their 1979 debut, and with the exception of a few albums in the `90s (hardly metal's brightest hour in general), they've all been rock-solid. How many bands can say that?

Like every album Saxon has released since 2001's Killing Ground, Sacrifice seems like the work of a band in their prime. Compare the last decade's worth of Saxon albums to their first decade and you'll see the same level of "power and glory," as well as sheer energy. Sacrifice is a powerful heavy metal album that balances heaviness with melody, has top rate musicianship and strong vocals, and is very well written.

The album starts strong (after the instrumental intro) with the title track, but it's the middle of the album - "Warriors of the Road" through "Wheels of Terror" - that really shine, with one thundering metal anthem after another. Sacrifice ends with "Standing in a Queue," which is the album's only clunker (it's a b-side if ever there was one), but at that point the previous songs will still have you riding high.

You could argue that Sacrifice's similarity to Call to Arms and the previous Saxon albums means the band is getting predictable (and perhaps not worth the 5-star rating), but for a band in the fourth decade of their career, and one that's still making such high quality metal, predictability really isn't a bad thing. Hell, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest could take a few tips from Saxon at this point.

They started in 1979, 34 years later, "Sacrifice" is released and still delivers great riffs, power and metal. We must take advantage of the fact that great Rock bands like Saxon are still on and creating music, and buy the album that is so valuable. As an extra we have some re-recording of Saxon classic that is also interesting to explore. Keep on, because SAXON KNOWS HOW TO ROCK!!!

Sacrifice is truly a great piece of music by one of the greatest metal bands
ever. Thanks guys for all the goodness.......

Im one of the biggest Saxon fans on the planet. I love everything that they have ever done everything ! and I have them all. I love the fullness of this band and there arent many dual guitar bands that do it the way these guys have. They feature two of the best ever in the business. While Saxon maybe pushed and had a hard time with Call To Arms, they have more than made up for it with Sacrifice !

I wondered if Saxon would ever put out a new album again. Im really thankfull that they did and they put this kind of power and goodness into it. Saxon in my opinion have never gotten the kind of respect that they truly deserve, given I know that there are diehard fans just like me out there who believes that they have carried the banner for 80s old school metal for all these years.

I have been listening to Saxon for about 10 years now, after seeing them live at Bloodstock 2003 and being completely blown away by their performance and their excellent songwriting. I gradually collected many of their albums over the years, and really looked forward to their last 4-5 releases as they came out. The 2000s have been a bit of a mixed bag in my opinion, with certainly more good than bad. But with the release of Call To Arms, it sounded like Saxon were going back to more of a rock feel (I for one have liked their foray into heavier material) and their songwriting was getting a bit weaker. I certainly didn't play it as much as their previous release, Into the Labyrinth.

Well, in comes metal producer Andy Sneap and a fresh set of 10 tracks, and suddenly we have Saxon producing their finest record since Lionheart. The riffs are fantastic, the choruses are soaring and catchy, and the writing in general is just very strong. The instrumentation is also fantastic. The guitars are fresh sounding, the solos are unique and the drums are absolutely thundering, but not overdone where they take over the mix. I'm convinced that if you put a song like Warriors Of The Road on US rock radio and didn't say what band it was, it would catch on. This stuff is so much better than the generic drivel I tend to hear on the FM dial.

The first 5 tracks after the initial "Procession" are the best of the bunch, and make me just want to jump in the car and hit the gas! I suggest you do the same and head over to the record store to pick this up. Or just order it here : )

The bonus disc of new, different versions of older tracks was also more interesting than I thought it would be. Requiem was a great fit for an acoustic version. Thanks to the Saxon guys for another album that I'll be spinning for years. And please come back to the US! The 2011 tour was the best time I've had at a show in a while.

SAXON in our opinion have always been an under rated band. Album after album, anthems and classics one after another says it all. This newest album just proves what we've been saying all along! "Saxon Is The Real Deal"!

KEEP \M/ XTREME!
