Saxon Return with Deluxe Anthology

BMG are proud to announce the release on 17th November of SAXON – DECADE OF THE EAGLE – a deluxe anthology featuring 34 tracks, that looks back at the years that built the Saxon legend.
 
Decade Of The Eagle is a retrospective that spans the band’s first nine albums and represents the very best of the first decade of their astonishing career during which time Saxon notched up five Top 40 albums and four Top 20 singles. These 4LP (180g vinyl) and 2CD deluxe editions are in a gatefold sleeve that features a special metallic embossed coin on the cover. They also include new liner notes by frontman Biff Byford that document the decade and which are accompanied by rarely seen and classic photos from the era.
 
Biff says: These are the albums from a time in the eighties that moved a generation of rock fans around the world, when British rock was once again at the forefront. Great times – never to be forgotten and still reverberating to this day.”
 
Saxon played a significant part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement, perhaps the greatest metal genre of them all and have become one of the all-time masters of heavy metal. In doing so, Saxon have ensured they are now representative of the heart and soul from the NWOBHM time. Always remaining true to the values which established them in the first place they are driven by a desire to continuously set the highest standards and meet them head on, Saxon’s work on those nine studio albums still resonates resoundingly – this is timeless stuff.
 
Saxon’s music that will continue to inspire Metalheads for generations to come, as it has influenced so many until now. In those immortal words, fill your heads with… HEAVY METAL THUNDER!

From being pioneers of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, to becoming one of the most successful UK rock acts of all time, Saxon have always transcended definitions, trends and eras. From 1979’s ‘Saxon’ album to ‘Destiny’ in ’88, the band enjoyed considerable success both in the UK and further afield. It’s no wonder their influence has spread across the globe, and played a crucial role in the way we look at hard rock and heavy metal today. The decade from ’79’s debut record was vital, not only in establishing Saxon’s talent and reputation, but also in laying the foundations for what has followed.
