Saxon recently played live(3 weeks ago)in my country Venezuela during their "Sacrifice World Tour"(actually it was a free concert financed by the local goverment) and it was awesome.It has a special meaning to me because it was after 25 years when i first saw them live in late 80's during their "Dinasty" Tour in London-England and seeing them here after all these about this album is a typical Saxon type of songs..."Sacrifice","Warriors Of The Road","Guardians Of The Tomb","Stand Up Anf Fight" & "Night Of The Wolf" are my faves...the bonus disc is a remake of some songs of the band...85/100

*Sorry about the mistake,i mean "Destiny" Tour in late 80's*

If you're looking for anything unexpected from these masters of British blue collar Riff Metal you won't find it here. Like AC/DC, they've pretty much locked into a formula and can now phone it in on new releases. That's not to say this isn't a good album, just nothing you wouldn't find on any previous Saxon outing, including cliche Metal titles featuring words like "warrior," "steel," "tomb, "terror," etc. Great production (as you'd expect) and some serious riffage are enough to offset the fact that Biff's vocals are starting to sound their age. (That's okay -- his have lasted longer than most metal shriekers of his era.) Nothing too distinctive overall, but plenty for mindless headbanging. A tour is sure to follow, which will most likely mean yet another live release with yet more versions of the catalog standards, which is enough to keep the recording/touring cycle in perpetual motion. 75 / 100

i totally agree with ReverendMayhem and i want to add that maybe it s time for the mighty SAXON to return to their hard rock routes and stop delivering the classic metal thing which they were found into somewhere in the 90s!dont get me wrong this is good stuff ,but not so close to what they should sound like if they looked back in their glory past!enjoyable though with great musicianship and strong riffs!
