About this deal

Following the release of Inspirations in 2021, More Inspirations is the second ‘deep dish’ serving of the influences which have fed the mighty Saxon’s immensely successful 40+ year career. The first single is an astonishing take on The Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s “ The Faith Healer”. As the NWOBHM movement began to fade, 1983's Power & the Glory, [2] their best-selling album to date, saw Saxon confirmed as one of the leading metal acts in Europe, along with Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. The "Power and Glory Tour" was an arena tour that began in Europe and was a huge success. The US leg of the tour, as special guest to Iron Maiden, along with Fastway, proved to be successful and Saxon found themselves becoming a major act in the US as the album, in its first week of release, sold more than 15,000 copies in Los Angeles alone. The cover art of the album was produced by Hollywood film director Ridley Scott. a b "Louder Sound - Watch Saxon's high-octane cover of Deep Purple's Speed King". 15 January 2021 .

Saxon: More Inspirations album review | Louder

Saxon's The Inner Sanctum album, released in Europe on 5 March 2007, and North America on 3 April, was seen by critics as their best work in years. [11] The band then started a world tour in support of the album. With all these songs, the music is performed largely like the original, with Biff making no attempt to emulate the vocalists he’s covering. Instead, he just sings like himself, which explains why many of these covers are very creditable attempts, and while More Inspirations could well be just for completists, Saxon deserve credit for introducing the music of seemingly forgotten seventies outfits like the Sensational Alex Harvey Band to a younger audience, who may not even be aware of them. What could have been an album garnering a response of ‘Why did they even bother?’ has turned out well for a band who’ve given us a successful guided tour of their birthplace. Saxontypical guitar riffs and Biff’s raw, smokey voice are making the opener ‘We’ve Got To Get Out Of This Place’ a successful song. ‘The Faith Healer’, competently implemented and adjusted to their own style this song is really inspiring. Highlights are ZZ Topand the already million times covered Man on the Silver Mountain. Artist Of The Month – February 2018: SAXON". metalnation.com. 7 February 2018 .

Your opinion either way will be re-enforced, as soon as the opening notes of “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place” ring out, you know what you’re getting. The roar of the music still sounds distinctly like Saxon, its almost like The Animals never made it.

Me? I’ve no objection to it – I remember fondly, albums like the MADF one that came out in the 80s to go alongside the anti-drugs gig that Doc McGhee (a convicted drug dealer that managed shed loads of bands at the time) organised in Russia, and b-sides led me to Eddie and The Hot Rods and The Faces amongst others. On 14 September 2016, Biff Byford announced on Facebook that Saxon were working on a new album with producer Andy Sneap, for an early 2017 release.
