Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Following on from Saor Patrol's recent 2015 release of XV: Total Reworx Vol. 1, Arc Music now presents Volume 2, a further celebration of the band's folk/rock blend of traditional bagpipes bolstered by heavy guitar and melodic harmonies, a combination of musical elements marking them a unique entity with a sought after sound. Most of these tracks have never been recorded with guitar in the studio, and those that were, not with Saor Patrol's current guitarist, Steve Legget. Both volumes of Total Reworx are truly different from the original albums, with those now available only on the CD the "Early Years" (EUCD2511). For those who love the pipes... a fearsome, noisy treat... " - All Music Guide Saor Patrol launches the listener into an 'Exciting Tribal Experience." - Wacken (Germany)
