“Heavy Metal Thunder – The Movie,” Saxon’s new film, will be released internationally this December.
The double-disc set features the soon-to-be-celebrated story of Saxon, while the second disc is packed with bonus features including a full-length performance from April 23, 2008.
“Rivetingly honest, and including the frank memories of every musician who has played in the band, ‘Heavy Metal Thunder – The Movie’ pieces together the earliest incarnations of Saxon, from frontman Biff Byford’s teenage years in the coal mines of Yorkshire and Son of a Bitch (the first incarnation of Saxon) all the way through to top 10 hits and world tours,” says a press release.
“Our music was more sort of machinery banging together, wheels turning, machines making noise,” says Biff. “It’s what heavy metal is all about. Heavy metal is all about hard, big sounds bashing your skull in. I used to work in factories where big machinery made lot of noise and I used to sing along to the noises they made.”
