Their latest album release, "Into The Labyrinth", out on 12 January 2009 (Germany: 9 January 2009, US: 13 January) via Steamhammer/SPV proves that Saxon mark 2009 haven't lost any of their expressiveness, enthusiasm and inspiration.

I really don't think that this is a weird mix of bands... Saxon is standard power metal and Iced Earth is US Power Metal. If you like one, chances are you at least have some interest in the other.

Now, when I saw IE a few months ago they were with some band called Saviours, which is some stoner rock band that somehow got to play after Into Eternity. They were really bad... Strangest band combination i've ever seen so far.

No....I'm very apathetic towards Iced Earth to be honest lol.

But I just find it hard to swallow, that's like saying Opeth are 'Metal legends', ya know?
