Product Description

Product Description

During the summer of 2000 the line up of Oliver Dawson Saxon took to the world stage and delivered great music that had been enjoyed for 20 years previously and their new music. Over the past decade they have released live albums and DVD's. "Motorbiker" is a brand new album of new songs and delivers heavy duty material from the masters and originators of NWOBHM. Play very loud and enjoy.

This album rocks - its the original Saxon sound that created all the 80's hits, and written by the guys who wrote those hits. Here's a band that's not sitting on its laurels, and is creating some really good new music, which the genre so badly needs.
Can't wait to read Steve and Graham's book!

Welcome back OD Saxon - where have you been???

Those already initiated with this band will remember that the backbone of this outfit are Steve 'Dobby' Dawson and Graham Oliver, stalwarts of the original incarnation of Saxon.

The sound here, in my opinion, is close to the original band they left behind. The album is jammed solid with hard rocking numbers, well written and brilliantly delivered - giving the current Saxon more than a good run for their money.

Check them out - they're good!

A few years back, being a huge Saxon fan, when I heard that that there was another 'Saxon' having been started up by a couple of former members, I pretty much dismissed them as a bunch of chancers out to make a few bob on the back of the name. However, recently my opinion of Steve Dawson and Graham Oliver has softened big time - largely due to the way they both come across in interviews on the recent Saxon 'movie', "Heavy Metal Thunder". Graham Oliver quite simply says all they want is to be left in peace to spend their remaining years as performers playing the songs the played a huge part in creating. Which is in no way unreasonable. To my surprise, it was actually Biff Byford, the 'official' Saxon's frontman who, probably unwittingly, comes across as a bit unreasonable. While Graham and Dobby seem like the type of guys you'd love to go out and have a few pints with!!

So, to Oliver/Dawson Saxon. And their new album. You don't really appreciate what an influence these guys had on Saxon's early material until you have checked this version of Saxon. It's difficult to put into words, but that VIBE is there. The vibe that the Wheels Of Steel and Denim & Leather albums had. Can't be a coinsidence!! This isn't cutting edge stuff, not by a long way. It dosen't break any new ground, dosen't deal with any heavy subjects - at least not seriously. What it is though is serious foot stamping, head banging rock. Any old rocker will know what I'm talking about when you just slap a CD on and it just has that primal effect on you to get jumping about. It is just 'right' - simple as that. It's never been off my MP3 player for 3 weeks solid now.

Standouts are the title track, No Way Out, Nevada Beach and Hell In Helsinki.

i got this cd last year but i was very disapointed in this disc, all dobby and graham have really done in the past 17 years they are working together again is the GREAT SON OF A BITCH RECORD VICTIM YOU back in 1997, then we got the rock has landed live show from 2002 that keeps getting reissued over and over and also the re landed show from 2000 that basically consists of the same setlist as rock has landed and last year 2012 saw the release (finally) of the long awaited studio album motorbiker, i know graham and steve are capeble of a much better record then this, i mean take nursery crimes the song starts out with lyrics like hickory dickory dock, the mouse went up the clock????????Read more ›

HASH(0x9792bbdc) out of 5 stars decent effort but no oldschool magic 6 Mar. 2012
By Edward J. mccarthy Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
well this od saxon cd finally came out, i had been waiting for this for years, it is a decent effort since it took these guys 15 years to record new material i was of coarse expecting this to be better, the best song on this cd is the title track MOTORBIKER it does have that motorcycle man feel to it but sadley the rest of this cd sounds very modern for my fourty something year old ears, graham still has it regarding those solos of his and his trademark sound, i mean you know graham is playing guitar here but i felt the son of a bitch cd back in 1996 was far better then this effort, chemical romance is very late 90s modern sounding and no way out is that song ONE SOUR KRAUT that appeared on that compilation angelair put out back in 2008 all they did was re work the song a bit and throw a different intro to it for this release but sadley the song goes nowhere, whipping boy is ok that is a decent rocker, just another sucicide is a decent song to but just does not stick in your head as for nevada beach the lyrics seem a bit silly and it also has another silly sensless intro to it hell in helsinki is ok, worlds gone mad is ok and sadley nusery crimes is the worst song on this release, any song from a bunch of guys in there late 50s that starts out with lyrics like hickory dickory dock, the mouse ran up the clock is so saxon offbase i will say no more about it, od saxon seem to be trying to appeal to a younger audiance with the modern production that takes place on this cd, if you are a younger hm fan perhaps you will really enjoy this release but please to be fair to oliver/dawson and mr conway maybe im to oldschool for this sound, i got into hard rock back in 1976 and i have been a saxon fan since 1981 so that could be the problem right there, i love all the oldschool metal and hard rock albums from the 70s through the late 80s, the 90s offered some ok stuff but once everything went digital in the 90s i felt music was never the same again, graham is no doubt an awsome guitarist and i loved watching him play alongside paul quinn all those years ago, also dobby was a real fixture with saxon until he got sacked in 1986 so i will always respect them no matter what but i will not b.s anyone when writing a review, sadley ( and i mean im sad to write this) i think in 2012 the duo axework of quinn and scarret who are the axe duo of the real saxon are doing a much better job with keeping things oldschool, saxon did a couple of dissapointing records like metalhead and killing ground regarding trying to sound modern but then in 2004 then came roaring back with the real classic oldschool saxon sound on lionheart and then again with inner sanctum, into the lybrynth in 09 was a bit to modern for my ears but last year 2011 saxon did it again CALL TO ARMS IS AS GOOD AS ANY 80S SAXON RECORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im just sruggeling with WHY graham is not keeping his classic oldschool sound up to par???? he was still doing it very well in the early to mid 90s with such saxon classics as solid ball of rock, forever free and dogs of war all 3 are 5 star records, the son of a bitch album oliver and dawson did back in 96 was awsome biff even said he liked it so i will never understand why graham and dobby did not continue in that format??? wardi is a good singer but when he sings saxon classics its no where near as powerful as when biff sings them, going back over the past 15 years i see it this way both should have kept son of a bitch going and avoided that long silly lawsuit over the saxon name, by now they would have had a good 5 studio albums under there belt and maybe 2 live albums and also a bit of a following of there own, the sadest thing i heard said regarding od saxon was by biff himself when saxon toured the us last autmn, when asked about a reunion with graham or steve he replied that it would have been possible to invite them to do gigs at the big festivals in europe like wacken and maybe do a dvd or something BUT since they kept us in court all these years and all this hostility went on i dont see that possible now, anyway i was really hoping for a strong arm of the law here or even a power and the glory or a forever free but what this record offers is what most nu metal bands are offering these days, i wish it was kept oldschool but od saxon and graham and steve will always be special to me, they have been blasting through my speakers for 31 years now, im afraid this record motorbiker does not hold the same weight as the classic stuff they did in the 80s and what graham was still doing in the early 90s held. anyway im glad they are doing something though hope this does ok in europe, i dont see hope for it in the us...

Your not Saxon, you can't leave a great band more than 20 years ago then later expect to rob the real Saxon of their name for your own gain. Your music lacks the old school magic too so yeah this sucks, just an attempted cash in on the Saxon name.

HASH(0x97ddc918) out of 5 stars Good, solid record. 16 July 2015

Very good, solid effort from ex Saxon guys. Riffs are amazing. Sound recording is excellent. It would be an absolute perfect album if not for fairly weak vocals... Other than that - very good. I must've listened to it about 10 times in two months that I got it. Well worth a try.
