SAXON, over the decades have gone from being pioneers of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, to becoming one of the most successful UK rock acts of all time.

The truth, though, is that SAXON have always transcended trends and eras. From 1979's Saxon album to new album Thunderbolt, the band have enjoyed considerable success. Five Top 40 albums in the UK, with four Top 20 singles. And they were similarly successful in other parts of the world as well.

It's no wonder their influence spread across the globe, and played a crucial role in the way we look at hard rock and heavy metal today.

The albums will be made available on coloured splatter vinyl for the first time and include album lyrics, rare photos and memorabilia.

The CD copies will include a 24 page media book and feature rare demos, remixes and live recordings.
