    From Blabbermouth.net:

    Every truly great act in the history of rock music has had two distinctive traits: a sure hand for hit-worthy compositions, but also the skill and that inner fire to translate these compositions just as hauntingly in their shows.

    SAXON certainly have both characteristics: having composed countless metal classics, they are also indisputably at home live on stage. 24 years after the release of their live classic, "The Eagle Has Landed I" (1982), and 10 years after "The Eagle Has Landed II" (1996), Steamhammer/SPV are due to release SAXON's brand-new live album, "The Eagle Has Landed Pt. III"
    on June 6, 2006 (Germany: June 2, U.S.: June 27), featuring the first recordings with drummer Nigel Glockler, who has returned to the SAXON fold following an extended creative break.

    In other words, "The Eagle Has Landed Pt. III" was recorded by two different line-ups: the cuts from 2004 feature drummer Jörg Michael, the 2005 material presents Nigel Glockler.

    Consisting, next to Glocker, of founding members, Biff Byford (vocals) and Paul Quinn (guitar) plus the long-serving Nibbs Carter (bass) and Doug Scarratt (guitar), SAXON are still one of the hottest contemporary live acts.

    The double album, "The Eagle Has Landed Pt. III", will be released in a top-value digi-pack.

    CD1 contains many of the classics from the band's early years up to 1984, including the release of their landmark album, "Crusader".

    CD 2 features the most important songs from the recent past, starting with tracks from their 1991 comeback release, "Solid Ball Of Rock", and ending with material from "Lionheart" (2004) — with one exception: "Broken Heroes" from their 1985 recording, "Innocence Is No Excuse".

    Yeah, I'm excited about this too. Just heard about it. It's probably a little silly to keep beating the Eagle Has Landed title into the ground, but that's knit picking.
    I will definately pick this up as soon as it comes out, as is always the case with Saxon releases. The setlist is really fantastic, and I'm just as excited to hear the new stuff.
