Saxon, those seminal British Heavy Metal Heroes hailing from Barnsley, UK, return with Carpe Diem. Ten titanic tracks bristling with still-clad riffery and proud intent, Carpe Diem is the statement which reminds heavy metal fans worldwide who the true masters of British Metal are, drawing on a variety of ingredients from their career to forge what is Saxon's most dynamic release in many a year. "It all starts with the riff," says frontman and co-founder Biff Byford, "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."


From the title track's roll-back attack to the incessant speed and power of "Super Nova", this is Saxon at their purest and most definitive, aggressively parading the pure metal flag and imploring fans old and new to gather and celebrate the very best of both Saxon and the genre itself. "All for One" has the stomp and pure power of a "Princess of the Night" while "The Pilgrimage" is classic Crusader-era Saxon. Produced by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Exodus, Accept and Richie Faulkner) at Backstage Recording Studios in Derbyshire with Byford with Sneap mixing and mastering, Carpe Diem strikes the ear as one of the most essential British Metal statements of the last few years, one which will ignite the joy in stalwart supporters and attract a whole new legion to the Saxon fold.

Saxon have certainly made sure to Seize the Day; be sure you join them.
