MUSIC FEATURE: Inside The Mind Of…Biff Byford

Biff Byford and his band Saxon were one of the first bands to spearhead the 'New Wave of British Heavy Metal' movement towards the end of the ‘70s. So what do you do when you’ve been the vocalist of one of the finest heavy metal bands, for over 40 years? You make a solo record, of course! We recently caught up with Biff to talk all about his debut solo album, 'School of Hard Knocks'.

Back in 2017, the metal world saw the birth of what seemed as yet another progressive metal “supergroup” - Sons of Apollo. What made it different was the sheer amount of talent and virtuosity possessed by its members. Now, over two years later, this progressive metal juggernaut has returned with their latest album 'MMXX', more futuristic material for a new year and a new decade.
