Rightly seen as one of the premier vanguards of Heavy Metal alongside the likes of Iron Maiden, Saxon were a major influence behind platinum-coated stars such as Megadeath. Formed as Son of A Bitch in 1976 (and becoming Saxon in 1978) they enjoyed tremendous commercial success in the UK during the '80s, with 8 UK top 40 albums, and have sold over 13 million albums worldwide, while albums such as Wheels Of Steel, Strong Arm Of The Law, Denim & Leather and The Power & The Glory have become legendary staples of any self-respecting metal fan's collection. Saxon return to the UK in December as part of their Warriors Of The Road - 35th Anniversary World Tour, with a finale at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on December 13th. [Updated:15/04/14]
