Saxon released their self-titled debut in 1979, followed by the classic "Wheels of Steel" the following year, which catapulted the band to fame and reaching #5 in the UK charts and containing the still popular title track and "747". They established themselves as one of the icons of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal throughout the 80s.

Later the band tried to attack the US market taking a more melodic direction with release of "Destiny" in 1988, before going back to their original sound with 1991's "Solid Balls of Rock", reaffirming their influence on the European metal scene. They continued touring and recording enjoying continued success.

Saxon saw album sales topping 15 million worldwide including 8 UK Top 40 albums across their career. They are considered a seminal NWOBHM act and are known to have inspired the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Motley Crue and plenty more.
