(Militia Guard Music)

The hard rocking juggernaut known as Saxon are back with their latest release  'Thunderbolt' (the band's 22nd studio release), three years after their powerhouse release, 'Battering Ram', Biff Byford and the boys show that they haven't lost any momentum when it comes to serving up hard rocking music that is pack with power and attitude. 'Thunderbolt', is certainly all that and more. The band's playing and writing is so much better now than so many younger bands. All twelve tracks offered up are in your face rock solid.  Highlights include, the energizing title track, "The Secret Of Flight", the moody  "Nosferatu (The Vampire's Waltz)" with its powerful guitar work, dynamic mix of tempos and powerful lyrics, "They Played Rock And Roll", a fast and furious tribute to Motorhead and the riff heavy, "Predator" featuring Johan Hegg from Amon Amarth. The production sounds great and the guitar tone is killer. Biff Byford still holds his vocal range as well as ever, and Doug and Paul are masters of both heavy riffs and melodic solos while the rhythm section with Nibbs and Nigel provide them with really precise 'tight and loose' foundations. Enough said! Get it, crank up the volume and enjoy! Tony @ The Dedicated Rocker Society
