Heavy Metal band saxon
SAXON, is about to release their 23rd studio album. Surviving a 44-year career in music, the band has produced one of their best albums to date. Such power and precision in the songwriting is evident all over this disc. CARPE DIEM begins with the instant hit, CARPE DIEM and transitions into the classic SAXON sound of AGE OF STEAM. This is classic metal on steroids. Guitar work by Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt is lightning fast and just as deadly. Fans of guitar should check out BLACK IS THE NIGHT. Biff's vocals have never sounded better. His prowess as front man for the world's greatest NWOBHM bands is none more evident than on REMEMBER THE FALLEN. 

This album will stand the test of time as one of their best ones and we look forward to see what they can do for 2022 and beyond! This will be remembered for all time as one of defining records of 2022 and beyond. ALl hail the mighty, unstoppable juggernaut that is SAXON

Ashes To Ares, Emperors and Fools Review


The latest ASHES TO ARES release from ex-ICED EARTH vocalist, Matt Barlow is a supreme assault on the metal senses. They have created such a fantastic landscape with each song taking on a life of its own. In a world consumed by covid this and political divide that, this record is a breath of heavy metal air. Take a deep and long breath and allow the sonic twists and turns to take you far away from this crazy world. Close your eyes and enter the fiery hallowed metal ground ruled over by the mighty ASHES TO ARES.
