'Saxon - Decade Of The Eagle' was released last week on BMG and this deluxe anthology features thirty-four tracks that look back at the years that built the Saxon legend.

This retrospective 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 feature a special metallic embossed coin on the cover. They also include new liner notes by frontman Biff Byford that document the decade and are also 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 were 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.

Their music 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!
