SAXON - Sacrifice [Deluxe Edition CD2] (2013) mp3 download


Already praised here on this blog, “Sacrifice”, the new album by UK legends SAXON, will be released next March 4th in its Deluxe Edition including a bonus disc.

With a storming new stomp in their boots and a renewed, lithe swagger to their legendary sound and taking a sharper, re-invigorated approach to the production, Saxon have delivered their strongest and most inspired songs for many-a-year.

This Deluxe Edition / Limited Edition, also produced by singer Biff Byford and mastered by Andy Sneap, comes with an extra CD featuring re-workings of tracks from the Saxon catalogue, including a classy orchestrated version of “Crusader” which works superbly.

This is just an advance of the album in the making with a full symphony orchestra.

While the ‘Crusader’ album is also revisited for a new polished, spruced up re-recorded take of “Just Let Me Rock” (killer), an acoustic version of debut album stand-out “Frozen Rainbow” thrives in a stripped down environment.

Some newer material also get re-workings: from ‘Solid Ball Of Rock’ we have an intimate and emotional acoustic take on “Requiem”, and the title track from ‘Forever Free’ sounds brand and spanking in its newly re-recorded format.

Really Good stuff.
