Saxon - Reveal New Album Details

Heavy metallers Saxon are gearing up to deliver their newest album Sacrifice, which comes out on February 22nd in Europe and February 26th, 2013 in North America through UDR. For their 20th album, Saxon have produced 10 songs in what will be the successor to their last album Call To Arms.

"Less tricks, more power!" says frontman and founding father Biff Byford, "my brief to the band was to be raw, be real and not be afraid to look back at the old classic material for inspiration."

The album was recorded at LS Studios in Yorkshire and was produced by Byford with Andy Sneap mixing and engineering by Jacky Lehmann. Besides the new material, Saxon will also be adding some unique recordings of revisited classic to certain formats of the release, also produced by Byford and mastered by Andy Sneap, including an orchestrated version of "Crusader" and an acoustic version of "Frozen Rainbow".

Can't wait for this! The 2000-era Saxon has been very consistent and strong in material.

Agreed. Props on the band for believing in to "not be afraid to look back at the old classic material for inspiration."
