British heavy steel legends SAXON have launched the official lyric video for his or her new track “Tremendous Nova”. The monitor is taken from the band’s newest album, “Carpe Diem”.
Produced by Andy Sneap (JUDAS PRIEST, EXODUS, ACCEPT) at Backstage Recording Studios in Derbyshire with singer Biff Byford and Sneap mixing and mastering, “Carpe Diem” strikes the ear as some of the important British steel statements of the previous few years and never missing in tempo or chew, an album which is able to ignite the enjoyment in stalwart supporters and appeal to a complete new legion to the SAXON fold.
Sneap, himself a guitarist and producer of some steel reputation, ensures that “Carpe Diem” doesn’t lack one ounce of grit or sharpness. “Andy‘s clearly an excellent guitarist,” mentioned Biff, “however he is not a blues-based guitarist like our guys are; he is extra of a modern-style participant. And which means the boys (Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt) love working with him as a result of, once more, it is all in regards to the depth. Andy‘s all the time pushing the envelope; he would not allow them to get away with something. They need to play it for actual, full pace. He will get nice sound, and we wish that Gibson/Marshall ’80s sound even when they’re not Gibsons and Marshalls. We try to retain that British steel guitar sound that we created for SAXON, and he is undoubtedly an ’80s baby.”
The genesis of “Carpe Diem”‘s fierce depth lies in two extraordinarily vital life occasions.
“It has been a tough two years,” provided Biff with appreciable understatement, “as a result of I had the guts assault again in September 2019, so issues went a bit pear-shaped for the band. After which COVID hit two or three months later, however fortunately, we began writing and recording this album earlier than COVID. We did the drums in Germany and we did the guitars in varied locations. I used to be doing a variety of writing whereas I used to be within the hospital mattress, and we spent fairly a very long time writing and arranging the concepts that all of us had. I do suppose it is a very intense album, and possibly a few of that depth comes from the frustration of not with the ability to do something within the COVID interval.”
Concerning his expectations for “Carpe Diem”, Biff mentioned: “We wish each album we make to go platinum. We by no means make an album that we do not count on to be unbelievable as a result of there aren’t any laurels round right here, and as a band, we’re all the time making an attempt to do one thing a little bit bit new, a little bit bit daring. I really like quick steel like ‘Princess Of The Night time’ and ‘20,000 Ft’, and I try to carry that type of SAXON into the music now, however in a extra trendy type. We do not sound like an outdated band on information as a result of we’re not sitting again on our previous success, we’re all the time making an attempt to make an awesome album.”
