Blaze Baley was born in Birmingham, England. Though he started his professional music career in 1984 with Wolfsbane, his career took flight to global heights when he joined Iron Maiden, with whom he released two albums and toured worldwide between 1994 and 1999.
After leaving Iron Maiden, Blaze embarked on a solo career, during which he has released 9 albums up to 2017 and has enjoyed an enviable reputation as one of the hardest working artists touring worldwide.
In 2015, Blaze celebrated the 15th anniversary of his first solo release ‘Silicon Messiah’ and in 2016 saw a significant worldwide resurgence of interest in his career, not least with the release of ‘Infinite Entanglement’, his first new studio album in four years. His 2016 European Tour covered some 70 dates, whilst he also toured Latin America and Canada.
For writing, recording and touring Blaze has enlisted three musicians from British metal band Absolva (Chris Appleton, Martin & McNee, Karl Schramm) and, along with Mark Appleton, who has stepped up from tour manager to general manager, has found a consistency of purpose and continuity which has clearly been welcomed by fans. At the same time, alongside the unwavering support of the fans of his solo career, he has seen this positivity register with a new younger audience, as well as the more established Maiden fanbase.
Infinite Entanglement’ is the first in a trilogy of albums following a sci-fi concept connected with a fictional story, rooted in the science fact of quantum physics. The two follow up albums are ‘Endure and Survive’ released 3rd March 2017 & the third is due in March 2018, whilst a book and PC game are also in development.
