"Nosferatu (The Vampire's Waltz)", the new video from legendary British Heavy Metal band SAXON can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's 22nd album "Thunderbolt", which was released on February 2nd via Militia Guard (Silver Lining Music). The follow-up to 2015's "Battering Ram"was helmed by producer Andy Sneap, who has previously worked with JUDAS PRIESTMEGADETHACCEPT and TESTAMENT, among others. The disc features original artwork by longtime SAXON collaborator Paul Raymond Gregory.

SAXON frontman Biff Byford told Overdrive about "Nosferatu": "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'."
