Saxon, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal band that inspired Spinal Tap, is back with a brand new single “Live To Rock,” which appears on the upcoming album Into The Labyrinth due out Jan. 9.
“Live To Rock” begins with a keyboard sequence that would excite any old school Saxon or Bon Jovi fan. Aggressive lead guitar fills soon enter the tune as the track erupts into a head banger’s delight with Biff Byford’s vocals still strong at 57 years old. With a catchy chorus, bellicose guitars, and thunderous drums this cut will surely be an iPod playlist staple for the classic fan in 2009. 8/10
