Killing Ground

Saxon has been around for more than 20 years, so I was a liitle skeptical, but these songs are well written, well played and well produced. This is clearly a seasoned group of musicians. There is no trendy crap in here, no fancy studio tricks and no gimmicks to speak of. It's just a solid effort all around. With a sound akin to Black Sabbath (at least the Seventh Star album with Glen Hughes singing) Rainbow or Riot, Saxon really just relies on a straight forward, tried and true formula of rock. There is an honesty and a simplicity to what they've done here that outshines many of their younger peers and I was really shocked and openly impressed by this cd. --Scott
