I still think this is the heaviest SAXON record of the 80s. Out of 8 tracks offered, only The Eagle Has Landed can be considered as a ballad. And it not really a ballad, rather a slo-mo heavy. The opening track Power and the Glory fits nicely with the guitar riffs sounded like 2 Minutes to Midnight (Iron Maiden). The third track Warrior resembles a thrash metal without even knowing it was a thrash metal. The fourth track, Nightmare sends chill to the spine and the 7th, Midas Touch was simply superb crushing heavy metal.
Power & the Glory is the fifth studio album by heavy metal band Saxon released in 1983 (see 1983 in music). This is the first Saxon studio album with new drummer Nigel Glockler.
