BLAZE: New Album Due In May 2006

Former IRON MAIDEN/WOLFSBANE frontman Blaze Bayley spoke to prior to the band's show at Belgium's Izzefest festival on September 3 about BLAZE's forthcoming album and DVD. "The new album is planned for May 2006 along with the DVD coming a bit later featuring three exclusive songs and documenting the work on the new album," he said. "The new album will be very different from 'Blood & Belief'. 'Blood & Belief' is my favorite album because the vocals are perfect and sound like on a live album. I would like to keep it up this way for the new album. We did a LONG preparation for 'Blood & Belief' and spent a very SHORT time in the studio. Studios are so boring and uninspiring. They are not creative enough for a metal band, they are only for pop bands and stuff like that who like to spend most time in studios."

BLAZE's current lineup consists of the following:

Blaze Bayley – Vocals
Oliver Palotai – Guitar
Luca Priciotta – Guitar
Christian Ammann – Bass
Daniel Schild - Drums

BLAZE are continuing to tour in support of their third album, "Blood & Belief", which was released in Europe in April 2004. The follow-up to 2002's "Tenth Dimension" was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England with producer Andy Sneap.
