Guest review by
NWOBHM: The new wave of British heavy metal; perhaps the most influential movement in metal history. Bands like Iron Maiden, Angel Witch, Raven, Blitzkrieg and Saxon dragged heavy metal - barely breathing after coming off worse in a bareknuckle brawl with punk - kicking and screaming into the 1980s. Just examine its legacy. Speed and aggression spawned thrash, lo-fi production and dark imagery begat black metal and the rest, as they say, is history.

Good old Saxon. Maybe not a classic album, but "Rainbow Theme", "Judgement Day" and "Militia Guard" are easily better than majority of their songs they would do after this album.

Bad English
An awesome masterpiece those who thing that NWOBHM is a sound, its example as it sounds, opening song and intro. Greta amsterpiece, in mid 80's Saxon was more popsy, mid 90's came backw hit heavier sound, but this also is speedy, fast and awesome
Opening song just blown me away, exelent ballad, heavyer version, Conan style song, Knull The Congeror movie about super hero, awesome Biff seams read some books and stories, great lyric, rest is just rock n roll, still 70's and now its history, how many studio albums 20 Biff is 65c and still kicking... awesome band
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
