EDITORS’ NOTES

As one of the most reliably awesome outfits in heavy-metal history, English sword masters Saxon mark 40 years of riffing and rolling with Thunderbolt. On their 22nd album (!), they pay tribute to their fallen touring partners Motörhead with the rip-roaring "They Played Rock and Roll," add some surprising guest death-metal growls courtesy of Amon Amarth's Johan Hegg on "Predator," and continue their proud tradition of supercharged songs about transport with the anthemic "The Secret of Flight" and the slamming "Speed Merchants."

The Return of Metal!

Saxon has been around since the new wave of british metal hit in '79, this will not disappoint! Carry on the mighty Saxon and wave that metal flag.

The Mighty Saxon Does It Again!

It's so nice to have a band from my youth still bringing it. Yes, the mighty Saxon has done it again. This album is killer. Everything about it. So good. Do yourself a favor. Thunderbolt is gonna knock your socks off.
