Staff review by

What a long story, what a long story that the one of this fantastic combo made in England, Saxon. Biff and his guys are back in town this year with their new release, "Lionheart" and if you're a fan of this kind of music, no doubt that this album will have to finish in your nice CD collection. If their last album, "Killing Ground" was not the best of their long career, I must admit that this time with the new one that's definitely not same. "Lionheart" the new album of Saxon is without any doubt a must have in the style.

Rating: 6 Somehow none of the songs presented on this album struck me therefore this album appeared to me as a generic heavy metal album.

Rating: 9 Excellent heavy metal where every song presents good riffs and sing along choruses. The crunchy production is fantastic as well.

No more conflict the blood is shed, Three gold lions on flags of red
