With a storming new stomp in their boots & a renewed, lithe swagger to their legendary sound, SAXON released "SACRIFICE" in February, 2013 through UDR Records. Taking a sharper, reinvigorated approach to the production on this, their 20th album, Saxon have produced 10 of their strongest, heaviest and most inspired songs in many a year, a more than worthy follow up to the last album, "Call to Arms"."Less tricks, more power" roared frontman Biff Byford. "My brief to the band was to be raw, be real & not be afraid to look back at the classic material for inspiration."Recorded at LS Studios in Yorkshire, produced by Byford, engineered by Jacky Lehmann and mixed by Andy Sneap, the album bristles with muscular metal intent. The songwriting harkens back to a classic era, with the likes of "Warriors of the Road", "Wheels of Terror", "Stand up & Fight" and the crunching tital track "Sacrifice" evoking the halcyon days of yore with a contemporary twist.Biff says: "It's certainly been done from a more early 80's thrashier perspective, and it's not just guitars bashing away willy-nilly - they've got fresh drive, purpose & perspective. From the songs to the production, I wanted to focus on the raw aspects which made us great in the first place." Biff concludes: "Living in that rawness, combined with some great classic Saxon songwriting has, in my opinion, made Saxon fresher than ever."SAXON IS:BIFF BYFORDNIBBS CARTERNIGEL GLOCKLERPAUL QUINNDOUG SCARRATT
