Saxon: Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie (DVD)

Like Roast Beef & Yorkshire Puddings, Saxon are unmistakably a British tradition worth protecting in a tower surrounded by armed guards and ravens. With a legacy spanning over 30 years it's to their credit that still today they produce albums of quality and relevance in a world full of manufactured plastic rock stars and fake smiles. Heavy Metal Thunder looks back on the fiercely protected legacy that Saxon hold proud and no stone is left unturned. Originally a 'Fan Club' only release it's been re-packaged in a glorious 2 disc package (single disc Blu-Ray) with more extras than tea-bags on Biffs rider! From the early days of their first incarnation of 'Son Of A Bitch' to their headline set at Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany, it's all covered with impeccable detail and an abundance of interview footage. Yes, there still remains some animosity between Byford, Oliver & Dawson however they all look back on their past with the fondest of memories interspersed with their enigmatic Northern humor. With some excellent archive performance footage and home movie footage from their first USA tours, this is simply the most comprehensive collection you will ever encounter on all things Saxon. Tributes from Motörhead, Airbourne, Machine Head & Metallica and a queue of stars and fans singing praises to the Barnsley big hitters adds that hero worship element. The second disc of extras includes Saxon's full concert from their 2008 tour with their St Georges Day performance in London, along with a plethora of tour/ studio footage.

An excellent intimate, heartfelt documentary for any Saxon fan or any fan of Rock /Metal who require some education on the reason why Saxon are held in such high regard. Heavy Metal Thunder will rumble through your living room as the Silver Eagle soars high, landing on your picture box!
