Saxon - 'Hell, Fire and Damnation' (official music video)

Saxon - 'Hell, Fire and Damnation'
27 full length albums θα "γράφει το (δισκογραφικό) κοντέρ" των Saxon στα ξεκινήματα του νέου έτους. "Hell, Fire and Damnation" ο τίτλος και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα μέσα του πρώτου μήνα του 2024. Ως προς την επιλογή του τίτλου ο Biff Byford μας εξηγεί:

«I’ve had that saying in my head since I was a small boy because my dad used to say it when he was upset. He used to say, ‘Hell, fire and damnation, what’s tha’ been doing now?!’ when I was ‘messing up his cabbage patch’ or carving things into the kitchen table. It was a very ‘Yorkshire’ saying back in the day.»

Το έδαφος προετοιμάζει το μουσικό βίντεο του ομότιτλου τραγουδιού, με τον Biff να μας λέει σχετικά:

«There’s so much music out there about hell and the devil and the occult that I just thought it’s about time somebody wrote one about the battle just between good and evil! You can’t sing about the devil without singing about the good guy either, and the song basically says ‘make your choice’. We all have to make the choice, are we evil or are we good? The song’s about that fight.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hell, Fire And Damnation is an album which sees Saxon investigate all areas of history and mystery amidst ten of their most confident and thunderously powerful songs yet.

Biff delivers his richest vocals in years, Nigel Glockler and Nibbs Carter on drums and bass respectively lay down the rhythmic law with bombastic power and the guitars of Doug Scarratt and Brian Tatler are fresh and fiery, a perfect complement to each other, carrying an overall energy and fury which will have fans salivating.

Musically, Saxon bring it all to the table. There's a furious tribute to actual heavy metal in the denim & leather coated super-sprint “Fire And Steel”, a wonderful nod to the NWOBHM's birth in the electric mid-pace “Pirates Of The Airwaves”, but maybe the true treasure amidst the jewels is “There's Something In Roswell”, with the sort of expansive groove and embrace which deserves arenas.

Produced by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Exodus, Accept and Priest guitarist) and Biff Byford, with Sneap mixing and mastering, Hell, Fire And Damnation strides the perfect line between confident, current power and gloriously irreverent flexing of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal muscle which Saxon co-created.

2024 promises to be a great year for Saxon, with the European tour alongside Judas Priest and Uriah Heep kicking-off in the UK in March, plus the arrival of the heavy metal masterpiece Hell, Fire And Damnation.»
