SAXON Guitarist Interviewed By METAL GODS TV (Video)

Metal Gods TV conducted an interview with guitarist Doug Scarratt of British heavy metal legends SAXON at the Hard Rock Hell IV festival, which was held December 3-5, 2010 at Pontins in Prestatyn, North Wales, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.

SAXON is seeking a suitable record label to release the band's new album, which is currently being recorded. The follow-up to 2009's "Into The Labyrinth" (SPV/Steamhammer), will feature at least one special guest.

SAXON had a busy year, which included performing a blinding set at Download in June, where to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Monsters of Rock show, they played their legendary "Wheels of Steel" album in its entirety for the first time ever.

As is becoming an almost yearly custom for SAXON, they will perform at the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire in London on St. Georges Day, April 23, which promises to be a loud, rocking celebration of England's patron saint's day.

SAXON's last album, "Into The Labyrinth", sold around 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 29 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The CD was recorded at the Twilight Hall in Krefeld, Germany, under the direction of Charlie Bauerfeind.
