Saxon don’t do anything new with Thunderbolt, yet the tried-and-true traditions are carried out with assurance and made to sound renewed. Every minute is a heavy metal gold standard, and more young acts should look to albums like Thunderbolt to see how to triumph in the genre. Songwriting 8. Musicianship 9.
Saxon – Thunderbolt. Label: Silver Lining Music – SLM065P48, An Approved Recordings – SLM065P48, Militia Guard Music – SLM065P48. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Red. Country: Europe. Solid, if unexceptional, modern Saxon album. Released in 2018, THUNDERBOLT is the 22nd album by England’s Saxon, whose recording history dates back to 1979 with their self-titled debut. The band never really flew in North America despite one of metal’s greatest anthems in 1981’s Denim and Leather. The album DENIM AND LEATHER was my first exposure to the band.
Saxon – Thunderbolt Released: February 2nd, 2018. Saxon Line up: Biff Byford, lead vocals Paul Quinn, guitar Doug Scarratt, guitar Nibbs Carter, bass Nigel Glockler, drums. So Saxon gave us Metallic. hey’ve also given us over four decades of metal. And 2018 sees the Englishmen releasing album number 22. Some bands are lucky to write 22 songs, let alone that many albums. But you can’t keep a good band down. So here I have in my hot little hands a Thunderbolt with 11 brand new songs. The first thing you notice is, this is most definitely a Saxon album.

There have been times in the past decade when Saxon have threatened to burst out with music worthy of being compared favourably to their early-80s glory albums such as Wheels Of Steel. And now they’ve gone and done that with new album Thunderbolt. After skirting round the edges with their previous two albums under the watchful eye of producer Andy Sneap, this time the partnership truly blossoms. It’s not that there’s a feeling of both parties being comfortable with one another here, it’s actually more the opposite.
