saxon newWe’re under strict instructions to refrain from reviewing Saxon’s brand new album until later this month…

…but safe to say it could be the best album the NWOBHM legends have released in three decades!

Sacrifice is the Barnsley band’s 20th studio album and is unleashed on the 30th anniversary of seminal ear bleeder Power & the Glory

Frontman Biff Byford is in simply brilliant form and anyone who enjoyed Saxon’s Heavy Metal Thunder – The Movie over Christmas will lap up every minute of this modern metal classic.

But like we said – we’ve promised not to review Sacrifice just yet for fear of ending up speared on a stone circle ourselves sometime.

Safe to say we’ll be getting the lowdown from big Biff next week and we’ll be delivering that full and exhaustive album review on the eve of release.
