BACK ON THE STREETS
The legendary Saxon finally let their unmistakable heavy metal thunder through the concert halls again. With the new album "Carpe Diem" the mighty metal eagle will land in Pratteln in October for the seventh time since 2010. As special guest, singer Biff and his comrades-in-arms have another legend of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in tow on the "Seize The Day World Tour". Diamond Head - highly revered by bands like Metallica and Megadeth - are guaranteed to bring the atmosphere to an appropriate level with their classics.
Saxon simply always goes! They are one of the very few bands from whom I have never seen a bad concert. And there have been quite a few since the early 80s at the Volkshaus in Zurich. At the beginning of February Saxon released their 23rd studio album "Carpe Diem" and reached new highs with place 3 in Germany and place 4 in the Swiss charts. Even in their home country England they were able to crack the Top-20 for the first time since 1984. The disc has everything a Saxon album needs: "Give 'Carpe Diem', ^^Remember The Fallen, an anthem for the heroes and victims of Corona, or All For One^^ the chance to blare into your ears often enough, they could achieve classic status like the early Saxon hits," judges Good Times magazine. The Metal Hammer critic puts it in a nutshell: "Saxon remain Saxon even in the 43rd year. With pithy riff metal and Byford as an inimitable roaring figurehead. Well done!" On the genesis, Biff Byford says, "The fiery intensity of 'Carpe Diem' is largely due to two extreme life situations: I had a heart attack in September 2019, and as a result, things were already not going well for the band. Three months later, Covid 19 also showed up. Fortunately, we had already started writing and recording the new album. We recorded the drums in Germany and the guitar parts in different locations. I did a lot of writing while I was in the hospital and then we arranged all the ideas we had and threw them together. I think the circumstances made it a very intense album, and maybe that intensity comes from the frustration of not being able to do anything during the Lockdown period." That's set to change drastically this year. True to the current motto Carpe Diem. "It's something you should do more often," Biff says. "Don't put anything off until tomorrow! And we will, as soon as it is possible again, go on 'Seize The Day World Tour with the album." Well then: let's seize the day, Tuesday, October 11 and make a pilgrimage to Z7 to see the indefatigable British metal legends!
