Saxon‘s “Hell, Fire And Damnation” is set for release January 19th, 2024. The title is a ‘Yorkshire’ phrase vocalist Biff Byford’s father would bark.
“He used to say, ‘Hell, fire, and damnation, what’s tha’ been doing now?!’ when I was ‘messing up. I’ve had that saying in my head since I was a small boy.”
The title track explores the juxtaposition between good and evil.
“You can’t sing about the devil without singing about the good guy either, and the song basically says ‘make your choice’,” offered Byford. “We all have to make the choice, are we evil or are we good? The song’s about that fight.”
