British heavy metal legends SAXON are hard at work on their next album for a tentative February 2013 release. The follow-up to 2011′s “Call To Arms” will be mixed by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, NEVERMORE, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY).
A new video clip from the studio can be seen above.
Commented singer Biff Byford: “[This video] just goes to show how great [SAXON guitarists] Doug [Scarratt] and Paul [Quinn] are and totally underrated in my opinion. No Pro Tools, drop-ins or tricks — just raw passion and inspiration!”
SAXON in April released “Saxon – Heavy Metal Thunder – Live – Eagles Over Wacken“, the no-fat-no-bullshit-100%-pure CD/DVD featuring DVD highlights from the band’s Wacken shows in 2004, 2007 and 2009 comprising thirty songs, plus a live CD from Glasgow in 2011. Each set captures the Barnsley-bred British heavy metal legends delivering classic after classic, from “Denim & Leather” to “Metalhead” to “Heavy Metal Thunder” to “Princess Of The Night” to “Crusader” in front of 75,000-pluds loyal, ravenous fans, who have come to expect (and receive) the levels of performance SAXON have been delivering for 32 years.
