There’s a metric shit-ton of stuff out today. Probably. I wouldn’t really know, because all I care about is Saxon! Are there any Saxon albums out today? YOU BET THERE ARE.
Saxon – Thunderbolt
Saxon continue to pump out consistently good to great metal albums these days, with just enough curveballs thrown to keep things from getting stale. Here’s the latest. I listened to the title track precisely once and I’ve avoided any other previews so this will all be exciting and new to me. Various versions as always… the big super cashectomy box has the same songs repeated over and over on different formats along with a bunch of knick-knacks. The main bonus seems to be a live bootleg disc that you can get in the aforementioned box, or via a few of the options on their PledgeMusic page.
And that’s it! The only release that matters today. I’ve got to say, 2018 has got off to a pretty amazing start. Three albums out already (Watain, Tribulation and hopefully Saxon) that are all likely AOTY contenders. Not too shabby.
Let me know what you’re buying today in the comments. Up for some Saxon or is there something else you’ve got yer eye on?
