SARACEN- Vox in excelso (2006)
Out of all the bands from the nwobhm era Saracen must be the only one that made such an impressive come back. ''Vox in excelso'' is a concept album about the Knights Templar and the legend around them, which had been popularized by the Dan Brown book ''The Da Vinci Code''. Rob Bendelow is again responsible for all the music, just like on Saracen's debut ''Heroes saints and fools'' (1981). The music can only be described as pomp rock. Expect many slow parts, narrations, epic atmosphere, but also bombastic explosions and great melodies; a jewel among the last decade's ready-to-consume music...
