OUT TODAY: SAXON REISSUE THREE MORE CLASSIC ALBUMS

 

Saxon_logo[1] copy

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.
DENIM AND LEATHER

denim-and-leather vinyl

Saxon’s fourth album, Denim And Leather was originally released on 5th October 1981. It was recorded at Aquarius Studios in Geneva. Arguably their most successful record to date it spawned the classic singles ‘Princess Of The Night’, ‘Never Surrender’ and the song ‘And The Band’s Played On’, which was inspired by their appearance at the inaugural Monsters Of Rock festival in 1980. This edition contains the B Sides of the ‘Never Surrender’ single and seven
live tracks recorded on the Denim And Leather tour of 1981.

The album spawned two singles, ‘Nightmare’ and the title track, ‘Power And The Glory’ and also marked the replacement of drummer Pete Gill with Nigel Glockler, who remains a member of Saxon to this day. This version includes early working demos of songs from the album, recorded in 1982. Including tracks that didn’t make the final track listing.

Alien Weaponry release new single

Print

One of New Zealand’s most exciting new prospects, Alien Weaponry, have released Kai Tangata  as the next single from their forthcoming debut album. Full of pride and ferocity these Kiwi youngsters smack us around the head with a Patu Paraoa to entice us into a song of history in their native Maori tongue.

 

The trio shocks and surprises audiences on a number of levels. ALIEN WEAPONRY‘s songwriting is complex, developed and highly political. Their live performance energy is startling, with just two fifteen-year olds commanding the front of stage as effectively as four- and five-piece bands three times their age. But perhaps most surprising of all, many of their songs are in New Zealand’s native language, Te Reo Maori. In fact, guitarist/lead singer Lewis de Jong (15) and his brother, drummer Henry (17), are of Ngati Pikiao and Ngati Raukawa descent – they call themselves ‘Stealth Maori.’ They attended a full immersion kura kaupapa Maori (Maori language school) until they were seven years old, where singing waiata and performing haka were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early learning were stories of New Zealand history from a Maori perspective. In September 2017, they won the prestigious „APRA Maioha award” for their song ‘Raupatu’ – a thrash metal commentary on the 1863 act of parliament that allowed the colonial government to confiscate vast areas of land from the indigenous Maori people. On 16 November, they took their places among NZ’s musical elite as nominees at the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.

ALIEN WEAPONRY Tu - GFOLD LP - NAPALM

The combination of thrash metal with Maori history and language has proved popular. Their latest music video for RuAna Te Whenua has more than a million Youtube and Facebook views, spent 2 weeks at no. 1 on Spotify’s NZ Viral chart, and hit no. 2 on the iTunes global metal chart (just behind Iron Maiden’s ‘Run to the Hills’). The band’s music has been playlisted on stations in New Zealand and around the world – from Scotland to Brazil, as well as the USA, Australia and Germany.

Now, ALIEN WEAPONRY are ready to release their furious debut album ‘Tu’ on the world. Short for ‘Tumatauenga,’ the Maori god of war, Talso means to stand strong and proud, and to stand for something. The notion is reflected in the album artwork, which includes the tradtional moko kanohi (facial tattoos) of the Maori warrior.

724361Standing for something important is something the band does equally well in English or in Maori. Napalm Records have also released the single and video for the song “Holding My Breath” – the first single so far to be sung entirely in English.
