Legendary Saxon frontman releases first solo album !
Free, tough, uncompromising and supremely obdurate, the English North is everything you saw in Game of Thrones and more. It is the true heart of England, the region where its soul resides, and Biff Byford has earned the right to be considered its true heavy metal bard.
The legendary Saxon frontman takes on not just tales and stories from his heart and soil, but also investigates the Middle Ages and Medieval history overall in his first ever solo album.
From the spoken word of "Inquisitor" leading into the metaltation on the Spanish Inquisition of "The Pit and Pendulum" to the autobiographical, old-school 'wheels of steal' era thrust of the title track, you'll get to know Byford supremely well over the 11 tracks which comprise School of Hard Knocks.
