DJ JC Green of Metal Messiah Radio‘s “Heavy Metal Thunder” show recently conducted an interview with vocalist Biff Byford of British heavy metal legends SAXON. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
SAXON‘s new album, “Call To Arms”, sold around 700 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 51 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
The digipack version of “Call To Arms” includes a glorious bonus — a free seven-track CD, “Live At Donington 1980”.
“Call To Arms” was issued in Europe in June. Recorded at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire, U.K. and Brighton Electric Studios in Brighton, U.K., the 11-track album was co-produced by singer/songwriter Biff Byford and Toby Jepson (LITTLE ANGELS). Featuring Byford on lead vocals, Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt on guitars, Nibs Carter on bass and Nigel Glockler on drums, “Call To Arms” is bang on-the-money brilliant SAXON music, a confident embrace of the aura and writing values from their early years married perfectly to a modern SAXON crunch.
