SAXORIOR were founded back in 1994 and through numerous live shows & festivals as well as seven albums, an EP & a compilation the band became a constant in the Metal scene.
After the successful „Saksen“ album in 2015 at present the band puts the finishing touches to their eighth opus „Hem“ (old Saxon for homeland). The initial ideas for the album came about by mid 2017 resulting in demos in late 2018. The album´s music came out heavier than its predecessor while the lyrics deal with the topic of the „Sächsische Schweiz“ (Saxon Switzerland), its formation, the Hussite wars and several old legends.
„Hem“ will be released 27.09.2019 again on Einheit Produktionen, accompanying the band’s 25th anniversary and promoted by many live performances in Germany.
