    Saxon – Sacrifice

    Legendary metal. That’s the it. That’s the review. Ok I’m kidding. Sort of. Since 1979, this band has now put out 20 albums. They’ve carved their own legacy and always essentially stuck to their guns. And in many ways… got better with age. Like a fiiiiine fine metal wine. Procession opens the album with a […]

    When it was announced on 11/11/11 that the four original members of Black Sabbath were going to reunite once again for a new album and tour, many were skeptical. There had already been an aborted attempt a decade earlier in 2001, what was different now? Almost immediately the first setback came: guitarist Tony Iommi had […]
