    The Writing On The Wall

    Niklas Strömstedt, "Om" released in 1990 (he is a famous pop artist in Sweden). Did Adrian hear this track before composing "The Writing on the Wall"? Or more likely, is it is another track that is the inspiration for both songs? The only connection to Maiden that I can find is that Strömstedt...

    It is mentioned in "At the end of the day" book that it was Rio. The rest of the band went to the dressing room without Blaze, while he was standing by the side of the stage waiting for the Number of the Beast intro to kick in. I found this on youtube: It propably wasn't just issues with...

    Blaze Bayley

    Many of the songs from The X Factor and Virtual XI were very welcomed by the audience back in 1998: Just listen to the crowd enthusiastically clapping along to Fortunes of War! Also Sign of the Cross, Man on the Edge, Futureal and The Clansman got a very good reception. But Don't look to the...

    Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger didn't work out live in 1998 and I don't think Blaze want to force his band members to learn that track now.

    I think Blaze isn't wrong then for saying that there was some monitor issues on The X Factour, as he sounded much better singing with the TV studio's equipment over the studio version, than live with the band.

    Blaze singing over an instrumental backing track on Top of the Tops in 1995. He sounded good here!

    Brave New World had some in places for the vocals, for sure. The Thin Line Between Love and Hate is an example. Would have been good for Blaze as well.

    The Post Your Own Music Thread

    New track from me. A couple of acoustic guitars and a Dave Murray Strat.

    The middle section melody played by Dave in "When Two Worlds Collide" would have been cool on a Somewhere in Time track! Sounds very "Blade runner" :)

    Blaze Bayley

    With a bit of guiding from a good producer, he is an excellent singer! He hasn't worked with a real producer since 2004 though (not in Maiden either). But an upcoming Andy Sneap brought the best out of Blaze back in the day. I believe that the track "Stare at the Sun" is his finest vocal...

    Who was auditioned to replace Blaze?

    Search for a completely new singer. That's what Steve thought they would do at first, when Blaze struggled on tour, according to the Run to the Hills biography. Originally he didn't think that Bruce would return.

    Bruce Dickinson

    The If Eternity Should Fail demo sounds like it was recorded over basic Superior drummer samples, but great to hear it. You can buy that program for like 300 euros: https://www.toontrack.com/product/superior-drummer-3/ I'm sure Bruce's version could have been stronger than Maiden's, if it had...

    Maybe Mistheria will play some of the solos on keytar? He's a skilled player.

    Bruce's top 10 songs on Spotify. Tears of the Dragon is getting a lot of plays, but otherwise it's nothing compared to Maiden's top tracks in popularity. I wonder if the next album can scale things up for him?

    I think that's the biggest article Metal Hammer has given him since the release of Silicon Messiah (they rated it 5/5, just like Brave New World).
