‘Coming Home’ is Julian Sas’s ninth studio album and the first as a foursome with new addition Roland Bakker on keyboards. Fans and critics paying attention to detail already noticed on Sas’s previous outing ‘Bound To Roll’, a modest change of direction. Especially the fat Hammond organ licks caught their attention.

Selection for the SAS is one of the world's toughest job interviews and physical fitness is one basic requirement, but what's really being tested is psychological resilience and character as candidates undergo sleep deprivation, interrogation and a series of increasingly complex mind games.
Five ex-Special Forces soldiers recreate the SAS's secret selection process and put 30 men through it, in the ultimate test of their physical and - more importantly - psychological resilience.
For the first time in 25 years the Australian SAS lift their veil of secrecy to reveal what it takes to pass the toughest military selection course in the world. Using the toughest military selection course in the world they are looking for the right type of solider. This is a search for warriors. 131 candidates from the cream of the military attempt the brutal 21-day trial. Most will never finish. Those who make it to the end face the brutal fact that even completing the course does not guarantee selection into the elite ranks of the Australian Special Air Service Regiment.
