Blaze Bayley
Blaze Bayley
Blaze Bayley was born as Bayley Alexander Cooke on 29th May 1963 in Birmingham, England. He is an English singer and songwriter, starting his professional music career as lead vocalist of WOLFSBANE in 1984. They released 4 studio and one live album together.
When Bruce Dickinson left IRON MAIDEN in 1993, Blaze was chosen as his replacement in 1994. His departure from Wolfsbane led to their disbandment later on that year. Blaze recorded two albums with IRON MAIDEN and toured with them worldwide.
In February 1999, when IRON MAIDEN announced that vocalist Bruce Dickinson was returning to the band, Blaze started his solo career.

He formed his own band, BLAZE, in March 1999. In May 2000 the debut album "Silicon Messiah" was released, followed up by "Tenth Dimension" in 2003 and "Blood And Belief" in 2005. In 2003 the band also recorded the live CD "As Live As It Gets".
Due to changes in the lineup and management, Blaze opted to rename the band under his full name, BLAZE BAYLEY and make a new start. In February 2007, the Blaze Bayley Band got back on stage with recording the live DVD album "Alive in Poland". In July 2008, the Blaze Bayley Band released their debut studio album, "The Man Who Would Not Die". The band recorded another CD/DVD live at Z7, "The Night That Will Not Die", which was released in March 2009. The second studio album "Promise and Terror" was released in February 2010.
Wolfsbane reformed and released a new album “Wolfsbane saved the world”. The band is still touring at festivals and in the United Kingdom.
In March 2011, Blaze decided to continue as a solo artist, working together with different musicians. He produced/released the album "The King Of Metal" in 2012, with co-writer with Thomas Zwijsen. The band toured together in Europe to promote the album. On this tour, the idea rose to record an acoustic EP with Thomas Zwijsen. “Russian Holiday” was released in February 2013, followed by a European and South American Tour.
During these productions and tours, he managed to record guestvocals for different bands and performed several shows worldwide with Paul Di’Anno. These shows brought him for the first time to Australia in 2012.
"Soundtracks Of My Life" - a 2-disc compilation - was released in 2013 to celebrate Blaze's 30 year career, with 30 songs that are important to him and his career. A DVD called "Live In Prague 2014" , recorded during his "Soundtracks Of My Life Tour" was also released , capturing two hours of heavy metal plus bonus material, followed by the 2015 re-issue of The "Silicon Messiah" album, including bonus tracks, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the original release of this, his first solo record. Promotion for these last two releases has brought Blaze to new and familiar places.
Blaze released his 8th studio album, Infinite Entanglement which is scheduled in March 2016 featuring his European touring band (Absolva) including guitarist Chris Appleton, drummer Martin McNee and bassist Karl Schramm.

Thou Shall Kill
Thou Shall Kill
The time has come once again for a new reign of power. From the north through rain, wind, and storm comes a new breed of death metal. Bringing back what was once lost in today's death metal. The art of creating dark and spiritual music that enpowers the listener with a sonic soundscape of the past, present, and future. Thou Shall Kill are visionaries, not followers of trends but in fact creators of a new & truly different style of sheer apocalyptic destruction. This art of extreme metal will see new horizons as we strive to work hard and continue to bring quality yet devastating metal to the masses. Showing extreme technicality and memorable songwriting skills and show no mercy attitude to create memorable song's. Bringing back the sound, the attitude, the darkness of 90's European/ Florida death metal with a modern day touch. Releasing the 2006 demo " Penance Of Death." Then releasing the 2008 "Feeding Christians To Lions" and 2009 "True Evil" promo songs. Started as a one man project founded in 2004 in Los Angeles Ca. The living entity of founder guitarist/vocalist Dragonis Khan stopping at nothing and never compromising to change. Staying true to the the spirit of death metal and it's legacy. Danny Uther Pendragon on vocals the screaming dead voices from the north. Frank "Freak" Kattner the headhunter on bass lows from the darkest depths of earth. Releasing the "From The North" four song E.P. Aprill 2011 release. Then the hunt begins for a label And the debut album to be released by 2012. Circle pits will become the new coliseum of blood elbows, ears, and necks will never be the same again. The new kings of Seattle death metal and the assassins throne are ready to rise, rule, and dominate.
