One person found this helpful. Great if you are a Saxon fan. Fantastic album. Over the past few years Saxon have made a dramatic U-Turn in the quality of their releases, ever since 'Solid Ball of Rock' the band has been releasing heavier and more thought out albums, a far cry from the depressing days of the too slick and polished 'Destiny', the album that some say should have buried them.
This brings us up to date with the release of Killing Ground, again, a typical release bearing all the trademarks of a Saxon album, out and out rockers 'Dragons Lair', ballads if you can call it that, the subject material is a bit morbid 'Shadows on the wall' and anthems 'Rock is our Life' and 'Deeds of Glory' all this makes great listening and apart from maybe 'Running for the Border' I can't pick a bad one out of them.
The bonus disc on some releases is re-recorded classics such as 'Princess of the Night, Crusader and Motorcycle Man' although a full re-recorded classic release entitled 'heavy metal thunder' is expected for release soon this does whet the appetite for it, the songs sound so fresh and vibrant, they could have been written yesterday.
An excellent release from one of Britains most underrated bands. I am not quite sure how they did it, but this album is no better than average. It has all the same ingredients as any other Saxon Album, and let's face it, they don't change much , but just doesn't cut it.
I have owned this for 3 years, but I could only name you 3 tracks if you asked me. One of these - Court of the Crimson King, I actively dislike. The other 2 - Killing Ground and Dragon's Lair are great, but you probably wouldn't find any of the remaining 8 tracks on a greatest Hits compilation.

Back to top. Get to Know Us. OK I do agree that the ballad Court Of The Crimson King shouldn't be on second position but it is the way it is and it is a cover from King Crimson so let maybe take it as a bonus track. This album is coming out on the 25th of September and there will be a limited edition with oldies recorded again.
