Highlights of the album are too numerous to isolate, but rock fans will be content to hear the title track - a sequel to 'Crusader' - bring back memories of a time when Rock and Metal were not simply an art form to be exploited by the likes of certain contemporary artists.
Byford's vocals are amazing and have evolved to an incredible degree over the years. No other mortal sounds like Biff!
Quinn and Scarret perform superbly - never overplaying, yet providing serious licks and riffs. Some lovely middle section solos are played by both!
The prime success of 'Lionheart', however, is the songwriting. Melodies, lyrics and anthems grow on the listener like a super virus, creating an addictive experience.
This is, quite possibly, the best album Saxon have produced since 'Denim & Leather' and, considering there have been a fair few decent efforts in between, is saying something!
Quite simply - if you enjoy Rock or Metal, JUST BUY THIS ALBUM!
And, to top it off, go see the band live - it is an experience like no other!
Lionheart; a moderatly catchy song with excellent riffs and great guitars.
To live by the sword; this is a song of slightly stretched vocals but in this case that makes it slightly better instead of worse.
Listen, learn enjoy, listen again and bash your brains out.
This period was the pinnacle of the `New wave of British heavy metal' explosion that was taking the world by storm, Saxon being a piviotal player alongside other top acts like Iron Maiden and Diamond Head. Along with this new-found resurgence, the old guard was vanquished for good by cementing their position in the chronicles of heavy metal history forever.
A great deal of water has passed under the bridge since those early days, so my musical taste-buds have changed with a natural progression taking place combined with curiosity to explore other genres. Saxon cannot be accused of sitting on their laurels and taking life easy, as they have been a very active over the past three decades consistently producing memorable albums and mustering up new fans along the way.
`Lionheart' reached the masses sometime in 2004, being received well by the fans and the media alike. As I mentioned previously, I had taken time away from the Saxon fold whilst exploring other musical pathways and then decided that it was due time to touch base and see how the band had progressed or regressed, which could have quite easily been the case.
On exploring the aural assault on `Lionheart', I was elated that the band had turned out better than what I would have expected. Naturally, there has been a total revamp of the sound, with a few new and old faces coming in and out the band, but at least they had not stuck to the tried and tested formula of the early days.Read more ›
