SAXON-"Hell, fire and damnation"




Covid 19 may have given hard times to a lot of bands  but for some worked as another adrenaline injection and SAXON are among them. Second studio album and along with the two covers compilation, SAXON seem unstoppable. It is not only the quantity of the produced work but also the quality. SAXON have no issue admitting they like their music, heavy, melodic and metal. They act as they preach, a bunch of old metalheads who have the fire burning in their baileys as it was back in 1977.




What you listen to here is the most traditional, classic, inspired heavy metal in the best British form you could expect and want to. No modern tricks, songwriting or production wise. The saturated experience of years on stage, on the road and in the studios comes loaded on their songwriting skills and produces miracles. SAXON did get a peridion in the early 00s where their albums were heavy but missing the catchy feeling of the early days. But this past decade their like a tornado leaving nothing standing at their pass.They have the majestic metal songs like "Hell, Fire and Damnation" and Kubla Khan and the Merchant of Venice", the stand outs ``Madame Guillotine" and "There's Something in Roswell'', the heavy stuff Witches of Salem'',"1066"  and the US surprise in "Super Charger''.


If you were raised with NWOBHM , this album is no surprise if you follow SAXON or will be a big one if you left them behind. The stainless steel of Britain charges one more and we will follow them again on stage, a band where time stood still.
