raditionally Blaze Bayley's career had been one of "should have, could have". His former act Wolfsbane should have been big, but it wasn't and his subsequent move to Iron Maiden could have been successful but it wasn't, so on his own and under his own moniker of Blaze, he hoped to finally achieve the musical holy grail and although he has far to go, potential is there.
The style here is undeniably British, with slight nods to Iron Maiden and Judas Priest but maintaining his independence from either forming a no-nonsense metal sound. Featuring the membership of Blaze Bayley ex-Wolfsbane/ex-Iron Maiden), Steve Wray (guitar), John Slater(guitar), Wayne Banks (bass; replacing original member Rob Naylor) and Jeff Singer (drums) he would release Silicon Messiah (2000), Tenth Dimension (2002) and his debut live set, As Live As It Gets (2003). Blood And Belief (2004) would see him returning to his studio.
