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

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.
