    They dont play enough song from this period in my opinion.
    I'm calling you to a little game now.

    Please choose one - one song from every album from 1986 - 1995, what you want to hear (again) on their concerts.

    But please dont write: Ride like..., Solid..., Requiem, Forever..., Dogs of...
    They play them always and they are uninteresting songs in this game.

    Here is my selection:

    Rock the nations - Battle cry
    Destiny - I can't wait anymore
    Solid ball of rock - I'm on fire
    Forever free - Hole in the sky (Please, back this song in the program forever! One of my biggest favorite from Saxon, its a real METAL song) :headbang:
    Dogs of war - Hold on

    Tell us your choosing!

    Degas, you are a man after my own heart, well nearly! My choice is the same as yours except I would choose -

    Rock The Nations - Rock The Nations
    Forever Free - Must we?! Forever Free or Iron Wheels (the only two songs I like from this album.

    Thanx Paxo! great songs really!

    Hold On rules! I don´t know the reason why Saxon never played this song alive. Maybe a Graham Oliver composition or other thing but It´s a fantastic song from DOW really.

    Quite frankly I believe the most underrated Saxon album is Unleash the Beast,it's their best in the last decade imo,they don't play enough stuff from that album,barely a couple of minutes from the titletrack if we're lucky.. btw I agree with the spirit of this thread,totally.

    I liked Hold on when i first heard it .....but its almost a deliberate attempt to be commercial and thats what i think of when i hear it, i mean the lyrics could be from a bon jovi song really. personally i like Demolition Alley as a better song from that record to play live

    I was just thinking that! The song is just a bit too "usual".

    Rock the Nations: Battle Cry (very sinister sounding to be a Saxon song..)
    Destiny: I Can't Wait anymore (I know it's "usual" too, but it's among the few songs i like on that record)
    Solid Ball of Rock: Lights In The Sky (very nice song, prob the best on that album imo)
    Forever Free: title track, don't really liked the other ones
    Dogs of War: Burning Wheels
    Unleash The Beast: Circle Of Light
