“I liked vocalists like Ian Gillan and Glenn Hughes but I never tried to sing like them” – Saxon’s Biff Byford reveals his story as a metal vocalist 

Author Arto Mäenpää - 18.2.2024

Heavy metal legends Saxon unleashed their twenty-fourth studio album “Hell, Fire and Damnation” on January 19th via Silver Lining Music.

“Hell, Fire And Damnation” is an album which sees Saxon investigate all areas of history and mystery amidst ten of their most confident and thunderously powerful songs yet. Biff delivers his richest vocals in years, Nigel Glockler and Nibbs Carter on drums and bass, respectively, lay down the rhythmic law with bombastic power, and the guitars of Doug Scarratt and Brian Tatler are fresh and fiery, a perfect complement to each other, carrying an overall energy and fury which will have fans salivating. Musically, Saxon bring it all to the table. There’s a furious tribute to actual heavy metal in the denim-and-leather-coated super-sprint “Fire And Steel”, a wonderful nod to the NWOBHM’s birth in the electric mid-pace “Pirates Of The Airwaves“, but maybe the true treasure amidst the jewels is “There’s Something In Roswell“, with the sort of expansive groove and embrace which deserves arenas.
