SAXON - Battering Ram
Release date: 16.10.2015
Two years after Sacrifice and less than a year after serious illness that could have derailed the career of drummer Nigel Glockler – Saxon unleash their 21st studio album upon the world. It is entitled Battering Ram. There’s an undeniable comfort in knowing what you’re going to get with a new Saxon album and that’s top class, honest, no frills (but plenty of thrills), melodic heavy metal. The album starts in bullish form with the explosive title track, an ode to the headbanging hordes that fill concert halls around the world and it’s safe to say that there is never a dip in quality amongst the 9 steel-shaking songs that follow.
