Heavy metal band Saxon were forced to work overtime when they recorded their new album last year (10) after falling behind schedule when they became stranded by snowstorms.
Remote areas of the U.K. were cut off in December when blizzards crippled roads and caused travel chaos throughout Europe.
And the veteran British rockers have revealed they put studio sessions for their new album, Call To Arms, on hold because of the bad weather - and had to work extra hard to complete it in time.
Frontman Biff Byford tells Metal Hammer magazine, "We've had to work really fast on this record, because all the bad weather in England over the winter put us behind schedule. We were stuck in the wrong part of the country when all the snow came down."
