Saxon: New Video Interview With Biff Byford; Working On Unplugged Album

Total Rock recently conducted an interview with vocalist Biff Byford of Saxon. You can now watch the 11 minute chat below.

Saxon will release a new concert DVD, "Heavy Metal Thunder Live: Eagles Over Wacken", in early 2012. It will feature performances from Germany's Wacken Open Air festival.

"There are five in all, from 2002 to 2009. But we've not got all five shows, in their entirety, because even I would get bored watching that! The most interesting one is 2009, which wasWacken's 20th anniversary and our 30th. We did a set that included songs from all of our studio albums, as voted for by the fans. And we did it with the most recent at the start working backwards to our debut album,'Saxon', at the end." - Biff Byford.

In other news, Byford revealed that Saxon has been working on an unplugged album.

"What we've been doing aren't necessarily the hits, but songs that sound good in an unplugged style," he said. "We will definitely be doing an album, although I don't know how we'll put this out. It may as a bonus CD with the next studio album."
