British rock group Saxon, one of the so-called ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal Bands’ to emerge in the late 1970s, will next month issue Eagles and Dragons, a nine-LP vinyl box set of studio albums released between 1991 and 2009.

The records in question are Solid Ball Of Rock (1991), Forever Free (1992),  Dogs of War (1995), Unleash The Beast (1997), Metalhead (1999), Killing Ground (2001), Lionheart (2004), The Inner Sanctum (2007), and Into The Labyrinth (2009). These are pressed on 180g vinyl and presented in a hand-numbered outer slipcase which features a specially-commissioned, brand new cover painting by Saxon’s artist-in-residence, Paul Gregory.

    Saxon are from from Barnsley…

  2. Mike Theo says:

    Hi just wondering where you can see the number still available. Followed the link but couldn’t see if there were any still available. Thanks

  3. Error500 says:

    Good to see some metal getting some coverage on SDE for a change. Some may get all sniffy because its not quite 80s pop, but the genre does have a fanbase that is interested in reissues. Will you be featuring the recent Monster Magnet reissues or the forthcoming Metallica deluxe sets?

  4. Karsten says:

    Demon:
    Limited offers – How do I know I will still get one?
    We’ll take down limited offers when they’re no longer available. You’ll still get the limited offer as long as you place the order while the offer is still posted on our site. Hurry!!!

  5. Bobo says:

    the signed edition at Demon costs 20 quid more than the one offered at Amazon UK. Rather expensive autograph as Biff surely is no Paul McCartney!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      If you’re in the UK, it’s £87 on Amazon and £80 on Demon’s site – so putting shipping to one side, it’s £7 cheaper, rather than there being a premium.

  6. Runicen says:

    This is a handsome set, no question – but am I the only one kind of sorry there isn’t a CD version on offer? I wouldn’t have minded a chance to consolidate this part of their catalog in my collection in one fell swoop – especially since there’s already a CD box set of the previous albums on the market.

  7. RickTheHib says:

    Ordered one just now – Saxon Rock and SDE rules! Cheers!

    • RikTheHib says:

      Apparently my order was shipped on 23rd March – unfortunately it hasn’t arrived and the tracking number given is invalid! I am contacting Demon to see what they have to say about this debacle!

  8. Steve says:

    Must agree this does look a handsome set and I have one ordered through Demon with the Biff Autograph
    With postage works out about the same as Amazon
