Very true. For some, SAXON were not spectacular enough, or to old school if you like. And they didn't have any particular image like MANOWAR or SLAYER.Drumdestroyer Roitman wrote:I think that Saxon has a "mature image" and their music is more Rock that Heavy Metal for some people, maybe that´s why they don´t have much more fans like Iron Maiden or any other bigger bands.
As Dan said, probably Manowar or Metallica sounded more exciting, i´ve heard stupid people calling Saxon "old guys trying to make metal", i know that´s pretty stupid, but its the opinion of a lot os stupids hehe.
Denim And Leather!!! i love them, maybe they are coming to Mexico!!! yeah!!!
I think vocals of Biff are one reason, I don't think I have read many Saxon reviews where his voice is not mentioned.ION BRITTON wrote:As far as i am concerned they never released anything really mindblowing, only some cool tunes here and there. I also don't like Biff's voice much, not very close to the vocal style i like most.
agreed here too, apart from the first two albums, i cant stand listening a complete Saxon album,lots of fillers, but yes i accept they have great metal hymns, but no complete abums filled with themDTP wrote:as much as i love SAXON, somebody else nailed it; very basic songs w/ no gimmicks will usually result in a smaller yet devoted cult.
i think SAXON's other problem is similar to ANVIL's: too many damn songs and product, resulting in quantity over quality. that said, i'll always worship their first five \m/
