History

When Wolfsbane surprisingly folded and Blaze's career with Iron Maiden ground to a halt because the band could not write good songs at that time, Bayley signed with the Maiden management and released a traditional metal album under his own banner. Album number two appeared two years later.

Blaze was scheduled to hit North America with a spotlight performance at the March Metal Meltdown festival in Irvington, NJ in 2003. The band's live album entitled As Live As It Gets was a two-CD set, which was released by SPV on April first.

Metal Mind Productions would release the first Blaze Bayley DVD. The material entitled Alive In Poland was recorded during the 21st edition of the Metalmania Festival, which took place on 24th April, 2007 in Katowice Poland. The singer would also reunite with Wolfsbane for three songs after his own set at the Rock Of Ages Festival in Tamworth, England on September 9th. Metalhead Music Management apparently dropped Blaze Bayley in April of 2007 from its roster claiming personal and professional differences. Blaze Bayley was interviewed by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson on the latter singer’s weekly BBC 6 Music radio show on February 15th of 2008. Bayley issued The Man Who Would Not Die on July 7th through his own label. Blaze picked The Night That Will Not Die as the title for its live DVD, which was due in March, 2009 through Blaze Bayley Recordings. The DVD was filmed on December 13, 2008 at Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland. Blaze Bayley was working on an album, called The King Of Metal, due in April, 2012. A European headlining tour in support of the album was to begin in March in Belgium.
