    This is awesome. Saxon didn't let us down with the previous 2 albums.

    I'm a HUGE Saxon fan, and when I heard the news, my two thoughts were: "damn, they make right choices all the time!" and "this is gonna be the best sounding Saxon album for sure".

    From the presselease, it also says the releasedate is 27 feb:

    The album was recorded at LS Studios in Yorkshire and was produced by Byford with Andy Sneap mixing and engineering by Jacky Lehmann. It fairly bristles with muscular metallic intent, Paul Quinn's and Doug Scarratt's guitar work the best it's ever been, while Biff's vocals sound fresher and livelier. The songwriting too harks back to a classic era in Saxon's history, with the likes of 'Warriors Of The Road', 'Wheels Of Terror' and 'Stand Up And Fight' evoking the halcyon days of yore with a contemporary twist, the classic Saxon sound absorbing the snarl, ferocity and attitude of contemporary bands (and fans) such as Megadeth, as evidenced by the crunching title cut 'Sacrifice'.

    This just sounds so right, I'll be buying a Saxon CD after so many years.
    And it's not just the production that's impeccable, but the composition as well... and Biff's vocals... how old is he ? Humbled.

    He turned 62 last month - he's like the Energizer bunny - he just keeps going. Sounds great on this one as he still does live. Have a MOG account so just listened to the live disc they released last year Heavy Metal Thunder - Live: Eagles Over Wacken and he sounds just as good as he always has.

    Really looking forward to this one. While some albums have been better than others, they have a consistency that comes through every time.
