Saxon's Drummer Nigel Glockler interview with The Metal Voice about the next Saxon Studio Album," We put an effort in all the albums we do and try not to let anything sub-standard go in. We just started writing the next Saxon Album we have been in a rehearsal studio for a week in the U.K. just getting some ideas together. It's always hard work writing. "
He continued. "In terms of musical direction it will be pretty much where we are at with Battering Ram and Thunderbolt but maybe on this album a couple more groove oriented songs. I think those last two albums lacked a little groove. This new one will have a bit more groove, but still heavy. We are doing writing sessions right now and working through them. We got about 10-11 ideas/songs at the moment. I'm scheduled to go into the studio to do the drums beginning of November 2019. In terms of producer nothing official but it's pretty much a given who is going to do it. Nothing official yet. "
