More About

It may not have reached the global audience of fellow New Wave of British Heavy Metal bands like Iron Maiden and Def Leppard, but veteran U.K. group Saxon has definitely earned its place in headbanging history. Led by charismatic singer Peter "Biff" Byford, the group earned a massive following on the other side of the Atlantic in the early '80s on the strength of gritty anthems like "Denim and Leather," "Dallas 1 P.M.," and "Wheels of Steel." The band's biker-metal aesthetic didn't fly in the States during the hair-metal era, much less the grunge-dominated decade that followed, but Byford and original guitarist Paul Quinn soldiered on to put out several acclaimed efforts in the past decade. Hear classic hits and songs from latest salvo Sacrifice when Saxon plays the DNA Lounge this week with pro wrestler Chris Jericho's ridiculous metal outfit, Fozzy.
