After hearing two tracks on the radio I was sufficiently impressed to risk a small contribution to the NWBHM (Yorkshire Branch) pension fund, and Call to Arms. What a fine investment! This sounds just like a really good Saxon Album (only a bit better!). Heavy and energetic, which should come as no surprise, but also full of original, distinct songs with immediate appeal.

This band that 'got me into metal' more than 25 years ago. Good on 'em for making me very happy again!

This is the 19th Studio album release by Saxon.
It is worth buying just for the orchestral version alone.
All the tracks are typical Saxon at their very best.
'Hammer of the Gods' 'Back in 79' and 'Call to Arms' stand out as works of art but there are no 'fillers' here.
If you like,or have ever liked Saxon then this album will not let you down.
The bonus CD is 7 tracks remastered from the 'Live at Donnington' Album.The sound is excellent but if you already have it then you could save a few bob and just buy the single CD version.
The artwork inside is inspirational and has a good booklet containing photos and lyrics.
I'd give it a good 9/10.

Amazin' every time you think you've heard the album of the year,another one comes along be it HEEP,NAZARETH or BCC,well here's another one.I've loved Saxon since 1980,followed them thru the highs(early 80's) and lows(late 80's/early 90's) and the resurrection(mid 90's onwards) and honestly this album ranks with any of their greatest,it really is superb,the production top notch,fantastic singing from Biff,the bass bubbles away in the background underpinning everything with a solid drum perormance from Nigel,while Doug/Paul treat us to some excellent lead guitar with some excellent lead solos,having listened half a dozen times now this easily ranks with the hey day releases of the early 80's for attitude,the fire still burns in this band,while the superb production reminds me of the commercial sheen given to Power and Glory/Innocence is no Excuse, two under rated discs.

Highlights ,well pretty much all of it,i believe this is the most consistent disc they have released in quite some time,although special mentions to,'Hammer of the Gods' which bursts forth from the speakers with tales of viking hordes,whilst 'Back in '79' reprises the days of Denim and leather,before my favourite track 'Surviving Against The Odds' rocks your world,this really should be the single,it could be Biff and the boys own story.

Further treats include the title track(both versions) with a sterling vocal from Biff,he really excells at this type of track, while 'When Doomsday Comes...' shimmers along a Zep like path with some splendid keyboards by Don Airey(he also appears on Mists of Avalon),then the Lizzy like opening of 'Ballad of the Workin Man' just exemplifies the class of the current line up.

It's another extraordinary album created by my long-time favourite, who are one of the best bands of the NWOBHM era. Both the lyrics and the ear-catching melodies are well-penned and the name Saxon is a guarantee that you will have a good time while listening to this album. Enjoy '

This is an excellent album from Saxon. It's very catchy and I liked it a lot on the first spin. However I got tired of it faily quickly, and 2 weeks later I hardly listen to it. Hence the 4-stars. But that's only me, and I don't want to write it's a bad album. I am impressed that, all these ears after they woke me up to heavy metal with Strong Arm of the Law and all they did then ... they are still around, seemingly in top form. Hats off guys!!

2. Back in '79
3. Surviving Against the Odds
4. Mists of Avalon
5. Call to Arms
6. Chasing the Bullet
7. Afterburner
8. When Doomsday Comes
9. No Rest for the Wicked
10. Ballad of the Working Man
11. Call to Arms (Orchestral version)

Okay. I like Saxon since when I was lent 'Destiny' cassette by a friend to listen to. I liked the album so much that later I bought the CD for my best CD collections. It's one of my favourite albums of all time. They already did many albums. I bought another two - 'Rock The Nations' and 'A Collection Of Metal'. Typical British metal. Then lately in the 21st century, I got the previous album to this - 'Into The Labyrinth'. I love all of these albums. So I did not have any single problem with this latest 'Call To Arms'. It is not different. Typical Saxon.

When I was playing this out loud in my room, a pal asked me, 'Who is this ? It sounds 80's.' I said, 'It's new release by Saxon.' He said, 'So they still rock the nations?' I said, 'Oh yes, they do.' ;-)

Saxon's latest album 'Call to Arms' is one of the greatest rock albums I have heard (and I've heard a few!) in a long while and, by quite a measure, their best for ages and, well, decades.

This is like the old stuff with modern and powerful production values.

I'll be honest and say that I put off buying this album and thought, oh yeah, Saxon's recent stuff is pretty darn good so I'll get around to buying this when I get chance, maybe put it on the Christmas list. Well, how foolish I was for waiting because I've been missing out.

Great lyrics, riffs, songs, solos and structures - there are no fillers here - see the other reviews that have been posted.

If you like Saxon and/or you like 'proper' rock music then buy this now.

So many 'well-known' rock and metal bands these days are still going and turning out good to decent (to sometimes 'tired') stuff, a bit like the same old menu at that restaurant that needs a facelift and a new chef.

Saxon? With Call to Arms they provide perfectly cooked steak (especially if you like it medium to rare) without any need for a silly sauce or salad.

God bless Biff and the boys for this magnificent effort -Denim and Leather for the twenty-first century - cracking stuff!
