Saxon is a band that I have enjoyed listening to for years. I even had the pleasure of meeting these guys many years ago and interviewed Biff and hung out with the guys for a while. One thing about these boys is that they've stayed true to their roots. They founded the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and their music has always been very powerful and evocative. The amazing thing about these guys is their ability to keep reinventing themselves. Over the past few years they have put out some of the best metal releases since their heyday and they're still relevant. They've got the energy of younger bands and a sound that is both past and present. I grew up on rock anthems that many people might feel are cheesy today but I still enjoy them because they're about fun and passion and soul. The lyrics will make you think and the music will make you pump your fist.
