DVD/CD & FESTIVAL NEWS ****DVD/CD & FESTIVAL NEWS**

Limited Edition DVD pack already SOLD OUT
MAIN STAGE slot at DOWNLOAD coming up

Freshly released, the Limited Edition (1000 copies only) format of the Saxon box set Heavy Metal Thunder – Live – Eagles Over Wacken has already SOLD OUT. Hot on the heels of the release’ success, the band is now looking forward to a Main Stage slot at this year’s Download.

Heavy Metal Thunder – Live – Eagles over Wacken is available in several other formats, including vinyl. The release features DVD highlights from Saxon‘s Wacken shows in 2004, 2007 and 2009 comprising 30 songs, plus a live CD from Glasgow in 2011. The British heavy metal legends perform all their unforgettable classics, from Denim & Leather and Metalhead to Heavy Metal Thunder and from Princess Of The Night to Crusader, for the 75,000 strong audience of the traditional German gathering.

“When we first played Wacken, it was a small festival with a small stage in a small field, driven by nothing more than raw enthusiasm, which appealed very much to us!“ says Biff Byford, Saxon‘s venerable frontman, “it started as fans putting on a festival for fans, and now it‘s fair to say that it is to Heavy Metal what the Donington Festival used to be. That was the iconic heavy metal festival of the 80s, and Wacken is the iconic heavy metal festival of ‘now‘. And when the eagle comes down at Wacken, when it opens up over the audience, it is always an electric moment for those there” comments frontman Biff Byford referring to the famous Saxon metal eagle, now a symbol of both Wacken and Saxon’s history.

One of the best ever live metal bands and one of the best ever live metal Festivals come together, in a package sure to satisfy the most demanding fan and the youngest heavy metal follower wanting to get his hands on a piece of the genre’s glorious past.
