Discover Hell, Fire and DamnationSaxon’s 24th album, with which the heavy metal legends keep the flame alive.
True to himself, Saxon keeps its metronomic album release pace. If the infernal title, Hell, Fire and Damnation, lets imagine a record full of hackneyed clichés, this 24th LP has much more to offer. Always based on relentless riffs (“Madame Guillotine”, “Kubla Khan and the Merchant of Venice”), the compositions make forty minutes pass in a flash.
Biff Byford still holds the microphone with an iron fist and shows that the years have altered neither his banter nor his energy. Declaiming his texts with conviction, he recounts the great battles on “1066”, or the fate of the witches of Salem with great credibility. Typically heavy metal, without falling into the clichés of the genre, Saxonstacks albums without showing any sign of fatigue.
