Blaze  


Until a couple of years ago, the career of Blaze Bayley had been a case of "should have been". Wolfsbane should have been big, but they were not, as the band failed to live up to the hype despite some early successes. Bayley's subsequent move to Iron Maiden should have been a great career move, but it was not, as Maiden was somewhat in decline at the time and much of the blame was quite unfairly placed on the vocalist. Now with his own band simply called Blaze, Bayley can finally shine. The style here is undeniably British, with very slight nods to Maiden (actually it sounds a bit more like a Priest/Maiden mixture, though not really similar to either), and Blaze's vocals are powerful and steady and relaxed. After a successful run and a few albums, Bayley decided to ditch the lineup, recruiting all new members and officially continuing as Blaze Bayley.
