Réédition. Témoignage vidéo de ce que peux donner une machine de guerre ultra bien huilée telle que SAXON dans un cadre exceptionnelle à savoir le WACKEN OPEN AIR ! Filmé en 2001, le 1er DVD conteint donc ce concert mythqiue pour une durée de quasiment 100 minutes ainsi qu'une interview avec le charismatique Biff Byford. Le second DVD est chargé de bonus, notamment un documentaire de près de 40 min qui nous montre la vie du groupe en tournée, mais aussi tous les Clips de SAXON et une compilation d'apparitions TV diverses, le tout complété par un livret bien garni de 52 pages. Un Must-Have pour tous fans qui se respectent !

Saxon was never nearly as big in the United States as they were in Great Britain. You'll get 30 seconds into the 2001 W:O:A concert and wonder why. No one does straight-ahead heavy metal better than these guys. Plenty beyond the concert to delve into, as well--videos, interviews, a well-done booklet, and even some home movies.
This is a true fan's package, marvelously and lovingly done. My highest recommendation!
Having never had an opportunity to see Saxon live (and unlikely to get one), the highlight for me is the live Wacken 2001 concert on disc 1. Here the band show why they are still champions of metal. They deliver an in your face straight out rocking show of classic metal, including tracks from their latest album at the time "Metalhead" and many Saxon classics from their past.
These guys are no spring chickens any more and so besides Nibbs Carter on bass they don't get around the stage that much. However there is plenty of headbanging, flashing lights, and other effects which result in a good visual experience, the highlight of which is undoubtedly the huge Eagle that descends from above the stage. It must have enough lights on it to light up the whole city!
Original member Paul Quinn does not miss a note on guitar, and together with Doug Scarrat (who looks right at home like he's always been a part of the band) they pump out that classic Saxon guitar driven rock-metal sound. Fritz Randow (despite his belly) is excellent on drums, and delivers one of the best drum solos during Conquistador that I have seen.
Although Paul Quinn is the guitar sound of Saxon, the man who drives the band is undoubtedly Biff Byford. His vocals are delivered with the aggressiveness of recent years and he sounds as good as ever. Although the crowd seem a bit laid back at the beginning of the show Byford works them well and it doesn't take long for them to get right into the show. He still shows us his humorous wit now and then, and pumps up the crowd so that he has them eating out of his hand.
All the songs in the live performance sound good, with the older ones still sounding fresh. (I tried to write my favorites here but found I had listed half the set list!)
The 13 minute interview with Byford on disc one is interesting, and this along with the whole of disc two is really bonus material for the Saxon fans. The tour-home video is amusing in that it shows the band stuffing about in Spinal Tap type fashion, but it also has great live performances of 747, Princess Of The Night & Wheels Of Steel.
The video clips are also quite funny, just as the early clips of Judas Priest are on their DVD Electric eye. They show the band wearing those classic metal clothes of the '80's which now seem ridiculous (but we all love to see). The behind the scenes film of the making of the video for Unleash The Beast is also quite humorous, as are the Saxon Tv appearances/interviews.
In general this is a fantastic DVD package containing a terrific live show and lots of bonus material for the fans in a wonderful book-type box which has lots of photos and reading material.
It is a must for all Saxon fans. Buy it.
The band is in top form here. Doug Scarratt is a master guitarist, Nibbs Carter is a powerful, dynamic and over the top bass player, German drummer Fritz Randow is an atomic bomb.. Paul Quinn and Biff needs no introduction... They're perfect and cool as ever...
The extras are quite good also, although one of the promo videos made me cry, watching the "butchering" of the classic "SUZIE HOLD ON", changed into pop metal of the worst kind... (well, this was in their "hair metal days" of the middle eighties...). Also, the interviews are good, and only leaves you wanting more, the same going for the three songs performed live at Sweden in 1995 (still with Nigel Glockler on drums).
This is the best live footage you can get from Saxon until now.
Once again this band of survivors delivers the goods. And this time the package is just as good as the contents.
br> The memoir book design is fantastic, and the Wacken Open Air concert is out of this world.
Motorcycle Man, Wheels of Steel, The Power and the Glory, and The Eagle Has Landed have always been the stuff of metal legend. But the band cranks it up a notch.
Biff Byford is even more down to earth now than when the band was younger. No B.S. here, just excellent tight and extremely faithful renditions of pure Saxon.
Disc 2, aside from the promotional video compilation, has some cool views of what it's like to be a traveling rocker in the 21st Century with some home videos by the band and road crew of more intimate venue performances, even those where the crowd was very sparse. Very nice honest touch, including some road crew footage of the Saxon performance before the Judas Priest Brixton Academy concert that was filmed for "Judas Priest Live in London."
