Known as the lead singer of WOLFSBANE in the 80s, IRON MAIDEN in the 90s, and his own solo band since 2000, BLAZE BAYLEY is truly what he said he was with his 2008 album, titled The Man Who Would Not Die. Having just passed the 30 year mark in the metal world, Blaze is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down, and in fact, his voice seems to get stronger with each album.

Picking out the traditional 3 songs for this article was a very tough task. Being the BLAZE BAYLEY fanboy that I admittedly am, I had 3 bands with incredible song writing to choose from, all with a decade worth of material.

Anyone who has followed metal, hard rock and the alternative underground for years will tell you it is a musical realm that attracts some unique individuals. Whether a classic band like Type O Negative, St. Vitus or Helmet, a newer act like Crystal Viper or something as far out as Shining (or just loosely connected to metal and hard rock like Black Bananas), there are always artists who will never say die. It is about being steadfast to your vision and reppin’ your unique voice.

If you are new to the music of classic metal act Wolfsbane and stumbled across their recent song “Blue Sky” from comeback album “Wolfsbane Save The World” you might wonder more about the man singing with such assured melodic conviction over the powerful and uplifting heavy metal/punky/bluesy riffs. At this point, while they would appreciate your interest in Wolfsbane, most true metal heads would slap you and say, “That’s Blaze Bayley, ya moron!”

As the voice of Iron Maiden, Wolfsbane and his own solo Blaze-related material, Bayley has always been uncompromising and dedicated to the cause of hard music. His deep and unmistakable voice is just as strong as ever.

Wolfsbane name new album

Posted by Metal Dude on Sunday, October 23, 2011 at 10:14 AM (PST)

Reunited British rockers Wolfsbane — featuring former Iron Maiden vocalist Blaze Bayley — have set Wolfsbane Save the World as the title of their upcoming reunion album, due for release in January 2012. On the album’s title, guitarist Jase Edwards states,

“It’s a suitably modest title… self-effacing, not too ambitious!!!! But the world does need saving and we are gonna start doing it with the help of our fantastic Howling Mad Shitheads. So spread the word and let’s get this record out there to the people who NEED to hear it! They dont know they need to hear it, but they do!! So we can infect and affect the unknowing masses with our Howlingmad optimism and who gives a fuckery!!”

As previously reported, the album will be available from Wolfsbanehms.com as well as via the merchandise stand on the band’s upcoming tour.

Wolfsbane released their last full-length studio album, which is self-titled, in 1994 before splitting up when Blaze Bayley replaced Bruce Dickinson in Iron Maiden. Last April, they released a new EP called Did It for the Money.
