With a career spanning over 40 years and still led by the unique voice of frontman Biff Byford, Saxon remains one of the biggest names in British heavy metal, on par with Iron Maiden and Def Leppard.
An icon of the 80's metal scene, the band boasts numerous UK Singles Chart singles and hits throughout Europe and Japan, as well as in the US. Saxon has sold over 13 million albums worldwide and has inspired many bands such as Mötley Crüe, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax, to name a few.
Since the beginning, the band has kept its fetish recipe: a rhythmic made of saturated guitars that groove and hard-hitting lyrics. With each album, the sound became more chiselled and the compositions even more percussive. And this energy can be found in their concerts, especially in the biggest festivals: Hellfest, Wacken, Graspop... The band has nothing to prove anymore! Wheels of Steel, Princess of the Night, 747... So many titles that have not aged a bit and that always gather the crowds.
The band is back in 2022 with a new album entitled Carpe Diem, which promises heavy riffs as powerful and melodic as ever! Headbangers, you have been warned!
