Staff review by

Sometime first feelings are weird and definitely wrong. I don't know why but when I listened to "Into The Labyrinth" for the first time, I found this album terribly boring and uninspired. Maybe that the problem came from the first song "Battalions Of Steel" which is too epic (strangely I like it a lot now…) but I don't know why I was totally wrong about the new Saxon… The more I listen to it, the more I like it and for sure, the British Heavy Metalers are back to the top with this release!

Rating: 5 Yeah! I like it a lot too.

Simply the best album from Saxon's after 90ths. The epic tracks are truly amazing.

Rating: 7 Pretty good album that starts with some great rocking songs but then it gets a bit too repetitive for my taste. Well, this is a heavy metal album, what else could I expect?
