Saxon - 'Age of Steam' (official audio)

Looking back three hundred years
When horses ruled and turned the gears
No one saw the future yet to come

Life went on much the same
A different pace, nothing changed
But now the march of progress has begun

Here comes the revolution
Here comes the age of steam

Stoke the fires to superheat
Work the mine, thе coal is deep
Feed the beast, the slavе of industry

People come to join the race
From towns and fields to claim a stake
Of promised riches in cities paved with gold

Here comes the revolution
Here comes the age of steam

Here comes the revolution
Here comes the age of steam

New machines of iron and steel
Pulled the plow and turned the wheel
Every new invention changed the world

The railways came on iron tracks
Crossed the world, no turning back
Bringing wealth and power to the few

Here comes the revolution
Here comes the age of steam

Here comes the revolution
Here comes the age of steam



«Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero» μας λέει ο Ρωμαίος λυρικός ποιητής του 1ου αιώνα πΧ Οράτιος στο ενδέκατο ποίημα του πρώτου βιβλίου των Ωδών. Carpe diem, άδραξε την ημέρα. Έτσι ονομάζεται και το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Saxon, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε προ ημερών...

Ο δίσκος των Saxon 'Carpe Diem'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Life hath no fury like a legend in full roar… and Saxon show just that to the world with the release of their 23rd studio album, Carpe Diem, through Silver Lining Music, serving notice to anyone who ever felt otherwise that they remain both vanguards and masters of British Metal.

Comprised of 10 titanic tracks bristling with steel-clad riffery and proud intent, the Barnsely (UK) born band draw on a variety of ingredients from their career to forge what is their most dynamic release in many a year.

"It all starts with the riff,” says front man and co-founder Biff Byford, "if the riff speaks to me, then we’re on our way. It’s a very intense album, and that’s all down to the fact that the essence of a great metal song is the riff that starts it, and this album has loads of them."

Produced by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Exodus, Accept) at Backstage Recording Studios in Derbyshire with Byford and Sneap mixing and mastering, Carpe Diem strikes the ear as one of the most essential British metal statements of the last few years and not lacking in pace or bite, an album which will ignite the joy in stalwart supporters and attract a whole new legion to the Saxon fold.

Despite a career which has spanned 44 years with over 15 million albums sold, including four top 10 UK albums, and having played to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide, Saxon are revving up for one of their busiest eras yet.»
