Forever Free is the eleventh studio album by heavy metal band Saxon released in 1992.

A UK version of the album features a cover of a biker Space Marine from the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop wargame.

In 2013, Demon Music Group reissued the album digitally and on CD in the UK; this version included two bonus tracks taken from their 1996 double live album, The Eagle Has Landed – Part II.
