British metal legends Saxon will release their 23rd album “Carpe Diem” on February 4th, 2022 through Silver Lining Music. The album was produced by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Exodus, Accept and Priest guitarist) at Backstage Recording Studios in Derbyshire with Biff Byford and Sneap mixing and mastering.

Biff Byford comments: “It all starts with the riff. If the riff speaks to me, then we’re on our way. It’s a very intense album, and that’s all down to the fact that the essence of a great metal song is the riff that starts it, and this album has loads of them. We want every album we make to go platinum. We never make an album that we don’t expect to be fantastic because there are no laurels around here, and as a band, we’re always trying to do something a little bit new, a little bit daring. I love fast metal like “Princess of the Night” and “20,000 Feet”, and I try and bring that style of Saxon into the music now, but in a more modern style. We don’t sound like an old band on records because we’re not sitting back on our past success, we’re always trying to make a great album.

The band have now unleashed the title track as a preview of the album. Watch the video for “Carpe Diem” here:
