Yahoo Music is excited to offer up a five-song sampler of Battering Ram for fans to get a taste of the band’s latest sounds. “This one’s a natural progression from Sacrifice,” explains frontman Biff Byford, “There’s a bit less rock’n’roll and a bit more ‘heavy’ on it. We wanted to keep focused on a style rather than moving around too much.”

Saxon will be touring in Europe through fall and winter; if you’d like to keep up with their schedule, check here.
