Saxon Hell, Fire And Damnation Album Review

New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) legends Saxon released their 26th (counting two cover albums) studio album Hell, Fire And Damnation on January 19 of 2024.

Saxon, consisting of singer Biff Byford, guitarists Doug Scarratt and Brian Tatler (Brian replacing long time guitarist Paul Quinn, who also plays on two songs on this album), bassist Nibbs Carter, and drummer Nigel Glockler, have been quite consistent over the decades with album releases and tours.

They put out an album every few years and most of them, I think, are very good.

They have their style of hard driving, hard rocking, heavy songs, but also incorporate melody and anthemic lyrics.

This album sounds modern and fresh, but also like classic Saxon to me.

Lots of great rocking, heavy riffs with Biff’s great vocals, but also some really good melody too.  In fact, more melody than I remember from most recent Saxon albums.

This band is really good on album and really good in concert.

I’m seeing them for the 3rd time, May 17, in Cincinnati, OH, co-headlining with the legendary band Uriah Heep, and I cannot wait.

Keep on rocking Saxon!!!!!
