2011, These blokes are true and stalwart Heavy Metal warriors. Saxon have been part of the music world for 34 years now - during this long time span, they certainly have been open for some experiments, but they are a band which never overdoes it, and thus, their fans somehow always get what they want. CALL TO ARMS won't break with this tradition: if you're among the following of Biff & Co., you won't be disappointed. The first three tracks (the anthem ,,Hammer Of The Gods", arena-worthy ,,Back In ΄79", and ,,Surviving Against The Odds") make for a brilliant start, and that level is kept throughout this versatile album. Be it a half-ballad, a rock song, a fast'n'heavy track, or a big epic: it doesn't matter because Saxon can handle it all! Needless to say that they have a knack for extremely catchy tunes, too. A Must-have for fans.
