Niclas Müller-Hansen of Sweden's Metalshrine recently conducted an interview with vocalist Biff Byford of British heavy metal legends SAXON. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Metalshrine: What are you up to?

Biff: I'm in the studio actually, writing songs for the next album.

Metalshrine: How far gone are you?

Biff: Just a couple of songs at the moment.

Metalshrine: When you write, do you write with a guitar or…?

Biff: Well, the whole band's here so we're all writing together. It's just a writing session. It's going good.

Metalshrine: So this is probably planned for next year then?

Biff: Yeah, February 2013 is the scheduled release for it. It's a mixture of classic rock and heavy metal. That's where we're at, at the moment. It should be good.

Metalshrine: Cool. Are you gonna produce it yourselves or bring someone in?

Biff: We're gonna co-produce it ourselves and we're gonna get Andy Sneap [MEGADETH, EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, ACCEPT] to mix it for us. He's a pretty cool mix engineer.

Vocalist Biff Byford of British heavy metal legends SAXON has issued the following update:

"We are in the middle of our studio work and recording right now some vocals. I have got a throat infection and it hurts quite a bit.

"We have made the decision to postpone the show in Hatfield into September/October. It would be too risky to play an hour and 45 minutes and drive after the show up to Donington as we are on quite early and this could be a serious damage to my voice. Because of this, we are thinking that we shouldn't risk the Download appearance and album.

"We are very sorry to cause you problems with travel and hotels but hopefully letting you know early is better than finding out the night before. It's not cancelled! We will let you know a new date [as soon as possible] and maybe we play you a couple of new songs.

"I hope you all understand and have a great time at Donington!"

New album on schedule!

British heavy metal legends SAXON have issued the following update:

"SAXON has never been a lazy band and especially this year we have been extremely busy!

"After we played several festivals all across Europe and some great gigs together with JUDAS PRIEST and the very first Hamburg Metal Days, we have almost finished the new album. The mix is done and the mastering is almost finished. We have guys who are right now putting the last details together and working bits and pieces out for the artwork. Watch out for further news releases like album cover, track list, some more behind the scenes info etc.

"Since most of album production work is done, the band can’t keep their feet still and have decided to play a very short Christmas run of three dates.

"We are looking forward to sharing the stage in Switzerland with our mates from MOTÖRHEAD and EDGUY and on the two Dutch shows we will be accompanied by CRIMES OF PASSION. Everybody that comes to our two headliner shows will get little Christmas surprise and we will spoil you with at least one new song from the new album which we will perform live!

"After that, the promotion machine starts; pre-listening sessions for journalists, interviews and, and, and…

"So keep your eyes open because soon you will see the media full of new SAXON stuff!"

Upcoming SAXON shows:

Dec. 07 - Bern, Switzerland - Metal Christmas Festival
Dec. 08 - Haarlem, Netherlands - Patronaat
Dec. 09 - Roermund, Netherlands - ECI

SAXON's new album was mixed by producer Andy Sneap, who has previously worked with MEGADETH, ACCEPT, NEVERMORE, EXODUS and ARCH ENEMY, among many others. The follow-up to 2011's "Call To Arms" will feature cover artwork by longtime SAXON artist Paul Raymond Gregory and is tentatively due in February 2013.

After enjoying a limited "fan-club-only" U.K. release, "Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie", SAXON's wonderfully unfiltered and intimate account of their ascent to the upper echalons of heavy metal, will finally enjoy an international release this December. The double-disc set features the soon-to-be-celebrated story of SAXON, while the second disc is packed with bonus features including a full-length performance (on St. George's Day) from April 23, 2008. Rivetingly honest, and including the frank memories of every musician who has played in the band, "Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie" pieces together the earliest incarnations of SAXON, from frontman Biff Byford's teenage years in the coalmines of Yorkshire and SON OF A BITCH (the first incarnation of SAXON) all the way through to top 10 hits and world tours.

"Our music was more sort of machinery banging together, wheels turning, machines making noise," says Biff of those early, industrial days, "It's what heavy metal is all about. Heavy metal is all about hard, big sounds bashing your skull in. I used to work in factories where big machinery made lot of noise and I used to sing along to the noises they made."

It is a documentary which looks for all the world as though it's a superbly crafted script, as much a tale of pure, honest, working-class triumph as just another rock 'n' roll story. "Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie" shows every facet of SAXON on their journey without once diluting the true characters who make up the band.

"We basically played every dump and shithole that there is in England over a period, probably just short of eight years," laughs Biff. "You know classic cliché of transit van, up and down and we used to play more or less every night. One gig might be a good paying gig and the other one might be no money or ten quid, but it was an obsession; you had to play every day." These wonderfully naïve young men sought nothing more than a great gig, a good time and maybe a nice girl, before suddenly finding themselves on tour in the U.S., exposed to the sorts of things which (quite frankly) Barnsley simply didn't offer in 1980. And from that point, "Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie" takes the viewer on a journey on a rock 'n' roller of a journey encompassing it all from triumphs to tears to tea-bags and beyond. Nothing is forsaken and nothing skipped. Despite the fact that to this day there remain problems between the Byford/Quinn and Oliver/Dawson parties, everyone tells the full unedited SAXON story with heartfelt honesty and integrity.

"We do have a great legacy," says Byford, "whether you joined the band in 1994 or (as) an original member. There's a legacy there and I've tried hard to not let people demean it and to spoil it and you have to look after that thing that is SAXON."

Formats:

* DVD Digipack (2 discs)
* Blu-ray
