I've heard Blaze better than that, and I agree with Robbiedbee that the guitars are not particularly good. The pre-solo part (from 3:42 onwards) is played out of tune - they completely BUTCHER the harmony! The solo is also a bit lacking - the parts that are copied are not performed that well, and the parts that are improvised fail to impress me. However, I also agree with Foro that the drummer is really good. I really like how he plays during that pre-solo part, especially from 4:14.
Just got an email that Blaze is playing in Dallas on Saturday June 25th, luckily I have nothing going on that weekend. This will be my first time seeing him live outside of Maiden. Looking forward to it.
Just saw he was opening for Boondox ... planning on getting the hell out of there before they come on
