Blaze Bayley - The Man Who Would Not Die

Blaze Bayley, the man has been there, done it, and came back round for another go. This time without the distraction of Iron Maiden, he is finaly stamping his originality on the UK Metal scene. The forth 'solo' album from Blaze Bayley has a quality lineup that fully deserves a frontman of Blaze's stature.

Playing a powerful brooding style of metal the album opens with the title track of 'The Man Who Would Not Die' Full of charging defiance, which momentarily brought back memories of stories pass of Blaze leaping off the stage and charging bottle throwers at gigs, the attitude is still there as Blaze blasts out his vocals with the band dishing up a tight exposae of classic modern metal including the demanded guitar led sections. Blackmailer the second track on the album keeps the same format and again is a quality track of thunderous back end rumble and melodic vocals.

The third tune 'Smile Back At Death' has Blaze in fine form and is a particuley passionate almost personal finger and snarl to the man with the sythe, with seven and a half minutes of denounciation, a great song to stand behind. While You Were Gone plays well and is a good solid almost ballad metal track although the band don't drop their guard to much, Samurai swings back to the defiant stance with the powerful tempo of the title track
and the line 'willing to die' and deviations of such is the war chant for all square jawed heroes, lead us into battle Blaze we will follow. You can hear why Iron Maiden asked Blaze to front them as a band...

The album has twelve pulsating songs any of which could grace your favourite metal playlist, although there are several tracks I'm sure we would all agree on, Robot the seventh song would be one of those, simple in its lyrical structure with its endearing
repeatable intonations and racing tempo of glorious metal riffs.

At The End Of The Day, slowly is the telling of a mans dawning wisdom, which is another of Bayleys talents, quality lyrics that have understanding on several levels, almost bard like, which is why it is so pleasing to have a proper readable booklet with all the lyrics in.

Voices From The Past and The Truth is One, don't let the side or the album down either either one could be released as a single. Then we come to the final tune 'Serpent Hearted Man' where Blaze's vocals and Nic's melodic riffs harmonize into a worthy song to end with.

A good album to own, one that you will play again and again
