REPORT AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

The British NWOBHM legends, Saxon, released their 19th studio album CALL TO ARMS in May 2011 and they have been touring heavily across the globe. Although the band had been annual visitors to Finland, they now played their first show in Helsinki in four years! The support band for this leg of tour was Canadian metal band Anvil. It seems that there’s a great demand for these classic bands in Finland as this show sold out with the 1000 person capacity reached right after tickets came on sale.

Saxon’s Nibbs Carter and Paul Quinn

September 26th, 2006

 

INTERVIEW WITH PAUL QUINN AND NIBBS CARTER

The legendary Saxon doesn’t need too much introduction here but I will do it briefly anyway. Saxon, who originally called themselves Son of a Bitch, was formed in1977 by vocalist Biff Byford, guitarists Graham Olivier and Paul Quinn, bassist Steve Dawson and drummer Pete Gill. Their early albums “Denim and Leather”, “Wheels of Steel” and “Strong Arm Of The Law” are heralded as some of the most important NWOBHM classics. A ground breaking live album “The Eagle Has Landed” was released in 1983 and still today, along with such classic as Motorheads “No Sleep At All”, it’s often mentioned as one of the most important live releases from that period. Since those days the band has gone through many ups and downs. There has been a great number of line -up changes, problems with record companies, problems with former band members and low record sales but on the other hand over the last few years they have succeeded to reach a new, strong and loyal fanbase who have helped them to re-create their glory days. Their recent albums “Lionheart”, Killing Ground” and “Metalhead” are modern heavy metal classics and are also living proof that Saxon is alive and well. Recently the band released a brand new live album “The Eagle Has Landed III” which continues the saga which originally started in 1983. I managed to catch Paul Quinn and Nibbs Carter after their great show in Ruisrock and here is the transcription of our lengthy causerie, hope you like it?
