Saxon gear up to release 20th album
Saxon will release their 20th album – “Sacrifice”, on 25th February 2013 through UDR Records.
The album was recorded at LS Studios in Yorkshire and was produced by Byford with Andy Sneap mixing and engineering by Jacky Lehmann.
“It’s certainly been done from a more early ‘80s thrashier perspective,” explains Biff “and it’s not just guitars bashing away willy-nilly, they’ve got a fresh drive, purpose and perspective.”
Besides the new material, Saxon will also be adding some unique recordings of revisited classics to certain formats of the release, also produced by Byford and mastered by Sneap, including an orchestral version of Crusader and an acoustic version of Frozen Rainbow.
“From the songs to the production, I wanted to focus on the raw aspects which made us great In the first place,” concludes Biff, “And living in that rawness, combined with some great classic Saxon-songwriting, has in my opinion, made Saxon fresher than ever.
