Album: Battering Ram (2015)

  • Lyrics
  • The closing track of Battering Ram is a melancholic tale of the First World War, with spoken verses and a sung chorus. "This year is the centenary of the end of the First World War. Nigel (Glockler, drums) had a piece of music which he played on a synthesizer for a couple of years that I really liked," said Saxon frontman Biff Byford. "We had an actor (and singer), David Bower from the band Hell, read the poem and I sang the choruses. I didn't want it to be typical Saxon so it is just keyboards, bass, me and Dave."
