Transcript of the Liner Notes

SAXON crashed onto the scene at the beginning of 'The New Wave of British Heavy Metal.' Releasing their first album 'Saxon' in 1979, containing shout it out lyrics and anthemic songs. The band soon attracted a lot of interest, by touring with well known heavy rock bands at the time including Motorhead and Nazereth. The second album 'Wheels of Steel' appeared in 1980, a cornucopia of loud, hard and fast, down to earth heavy metal, played at it's best. 'Strong Arm of the Law' also released in 1980 followed in the footsteps of the british metal scene andirthey began to sell out the country's major rock venues, never compromising to any outside pressure from the press or to their claim following of the genre) welcoming each subsequent release with open arms. Playing heavy metal like no other band, Saxon must be one of popular rock shores. So just put the album on the stereo, crank up the volume and be prepared for some heavy metal thunder.
