On the road or in the studio, Saxon never sleeps, and this amazing band has shared a new video with the fans. You might know that the mentioned metalheads have released a new album this year titled “Thunderbolt”. “Nosferatu (The Vampire’s Waltz)” is one of the brand new tracks and a video was created for it as well.
Frontman Biff Byford shared a few wirds about the new song:
It’s a great story, isn’t it?” referring to the story that originally spawned F.W. Murnau’s film “Nosferatu” and Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. “It was written in Yorkshire in a place called Whitby. It was a small fishing village on the East coast. It was very popular — still is very popular with the Victorians, and Bram Stoker wrote the novel there, Dracula, Nosferatu, yeah? It sort of inspired me. I used to live there. Twice a year they have a gothic fair there, a gothic festival, and it’s all around the Bram Stoker thing. And also a friend of mine, a film director asked me to write a song about vampires, basically, and that’s the song that we wrote, Nosferatu.
