Whenever we’re able to induct a 36-year-old album into the Decibel Hall of Fame, it’s a minor miracle. So it’s gravy that the story of Decibel’s #44 pick for Best Old-School Metal Album of All Time is such a compelling read. Hat tip to longtime contributor Chris Dick for gathering the five members of Saxon who recorded 1980 NWOBHM landmark Wheels of Steel.
And a huge thanks to guitarist Graham Oliver, bassist Steve Dawson, guitarist Paul Quinn, vocalist Biff Byford and drummer Pete Gill for providing the story on our seven-page making-of Wheels of Steel. Read it here in the February Decibel.
