Wolfsbane was one of those bands that seemed destined for greatness, with superstardom predicted by all who heard them, but it was not meant to be. Formed in 1987, the band quickly gained a reputation for outstanding energetic live shows with their infectious brand of NWOBHM-flavored rock/metal, eventually securing a recording contract from Def American Records, by which time the band was already hyped beyond belief. But the debut, Live Fast, Die Fast, suffered from a flat production; by many accounts, the album simply failed to match their live sound, and thus was a commercial disappointment. The band soldiered on, releasing a few more albums, but the failure of Live Fast was never really overcome. By 1993, vocalist Blaze Bayley was auditioning for Iron Maiden, a position he would secure at the end of that year, and the band split shortly thereafter. Unfortunately Bayley's tenure with Maiden wasn't beneficial for either the band or the man, but he has prospered since leaving, now fronting his own band, Blaze. Finally, the original foursome is back together as of this writing, with plans to tour and record in 2011.
