Good song. I heard other stuff from the album and I assure you they are far better than this
Didn't get the "Tenth Dimension" vinyl after all.
Thought it was pretty bad to cut out the rest of the band members from the booklet, that was definitely a factor for me.
Most of the members sacrificed a lot to perform with Blaze. For example they could have taken other jobs within the music industry or gone on to better paying day jobs after that Silicon Messiah didn't take off - but you know "Blood and Belief" wasn't just Blaze's view, after all?
On a sidenote, bassplayer Rob Naylor now works as an airline captain, that's kinda cool...
and not the only musician to go down that route.
Thats not exactly correct. They are released under the "Blaze Bayley Recordings" instead of Steamhammer (SPV) label they were orginally released on. I can only speak to Silicon Messiah as that's the only LP Ive picked up but looking through the sleeve there's no attempt erase the rest of the band contributions to the album.Wow that's sad, what a cunt, I hear the albums are also re-released as "Blaze Bayley" now. Maybe it's karma why he's not getting in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
Who has written the music and lyrics on the album?
This is a shared vision between John Slater, Steve Wray and myself. Steve and John write the music and I did the lyrics.
Your lyrics are more personal and autobiographical on the new album, how come?
Steve Wray and I talked a lot after the live album was recorded and he suggested I try a different approach to my lyrics. Once I started to be honest about my life and my feelings there was no turning back.
Who came up with the cover?
John Slater our guitarist.
I think being visibly credited for your creative work is both a basic courtesy and a moral right.- Blaze, interviewed for the release of Blood and Belief in 2004. https://www.metal-rules.com/interviews/Blaze-August2004.htm
Just a few examples of how Wray and Slater did more for Blaze than just writing riffs and solos. Therefore I think it's a real shame to cut them out.
No. I think was an active choice, the reasons for which, unknown. Nobody runs the Blaze Bayley show than Blaze Bayley - Because there's not really any money in it more than to finance Blaze's lfie and career. He is a fringe artist with a fringe fan base with a small number of sales.
Yep. So it's released by Blaze himself.
I thought Blaze was managed by Luke Appletons dad?I think you're misinterpreting my point. My point is, Blaze is calling the shots. If he didn't own the rights to his music, which he obviously does as well as control the distribution, then some aspects could be out of his reach. It isn't. What's more is, Blaze doesn't have a management. If the old band isn't properly credited, then it's because of Blaze himself.
You cant be fast and loose with your facts then claim its "besides the point" when your called on it. Im not really sure why you replied to me directly in the first place. Ive said nothing to refute or dispute anything you initially said and vise versa but carry on.He used to be managed by himself and his then-wife. That he was managed by Appleton's dad is news to me. That's besides the point though, paying somebody to do the work for you and being managed by a management company and operating under other contractual obligations tying your hands, and essentially not being in control isn't the situation here.
You're right. I missed the inlay booklet... Never noticed it existed. It has the performance credits. The writing credits were never the issue though. Makes this entire discussion null and void. Some shitty researching on my part.I have the vinyl and want to clarify some points. The band are properly credited and named in the album. They have not been left out of the writing credits. There’s is not the detail and behind the scenes shots like with the original CD. The cover of the booklet says ‘Blaze Bayley’ but the album cover says ‘BLAZE’.
That wasnt the point. No ones disputing Blaze is the source re-releasing his earlier works. Being released by Blaze Bayley isnt the same as "re-released as "Blaze Bayley".
