Biff Byford reveals that next Saxon album will be heavy like last three and “quite British”

Saxon frontman Biff Byford was recently interviewed by Jimmy Kay for Canada’s The Metal Voice amid the corona virus epidemic that is all over the world.

Byford was asked about the status of Saxon‘s next album to which he replied (with slight edits):

“The album is heavy, it’s the same as Thunderbolt, Battering Ram and Sacrifice. It’s heavy and it’s quite British, we like to retain that. Me and Nibbs Carter wrote most of the songs again. Now we are on hold and I am still open to write more songs. The boys are working on songs. If they come up with anything strong, than we might re-record some of the stuff and put newer stuff back in. There are a few songs that we put together that are pretty cool. It’s heavy and there is some great guitar playing on it from the boys. Nigel‘s drumming is up there with much younger drummers if you know what I mean, pushing himself. Andy Sneap is producing it.  No songs are completed, the lyrics are 50% done. We wanted the album to come out early 2021 but I don’t know now, we might have to re-think.”

In terms of his heart condition issues back in or about September 2019, Byford indicated: “It all started with my heart biking, that’s when I got the twinge. it wasn’t like a Hollywood heart attack, it was more like indigestion and they found a wacky rhythm in my heart and they sent me in. I lived with it for maybe 3 weeks before I decided something was wrong. It was a triple bypass.”
