This morning in the Metal Digest office, we’re cranking up the volume on a real heavy metal classic with ‘Wheels of Steel’, the 1980 landmark album from the mighty Saxon. Alongside their peers, Saxon heralded in the NWOBHM era with some fantastic albums which reshaped the heavy metal world and set it off on its path towards the modern era. ‘Wheels of Steel’ had it all, it was anthemic, it was aggressive and it was fit for a new era with even ‘747 (Strangers in the Night)’ providing Saxon with that big single which catapulted the band into the future backed up by tracks like ‘Motorcycle Man’ and the title track. So this morning, don’t take no bullshit, stand up and be counted and for the God’s sake… get your ground lights on!
