Saxon never really broke into the American scene despite being one of the major player in the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.  They did tour here quite often but never had the radio airplay like Judas Priest or Def Leppard and they didn't quite gain the momentum of Iron Maiden.  Yet world-wide they still play to massive crowds and even continue to pump out album after album.  Here's the video for their latest release "Sacrifice'.

Saxon was known for their big anthems and stellar live performances. Critics would always agree on one thing, Saxon left it all out on the stage.  They weren't pretty or trendy, but lead man Biff Byford and the boys would always pull out all the stops on stage.
