BLAZE BAYLEY: Pro-Shot Footage Of HAMMERFEST Performance

Professionally filmed video footage of British heavy metal vocalist Blaze Bayley's (IRON MAIDEN, WOLFSBANE) performance at this year's Hammerfest, which was held in March at the Hafan y Mor Holiday Park at Pwllheli, Gwynedd, in North Wales, can be seen below.

As previously reported, two concerts by Blaze in Nancy, France will be professionally filmed and recorded for a DVD and CD release. The May 25 and May 26 gigs at the Chez Paulette pub will be very special evenings because the first night will see Blaze and his band play a setlist voted by fans, while the second night will be focused on the three albums of the "Infinite Entanglement" trilogy.

The 54-year-old Bayley, who was born in Birmingham, was the original frontman in WOLFSBANE, but left in 1994 to join MAIDEN. He recorded two studio albums with the Steve Harris-led group — 1995's "The X Factor" and 1998's "Virtual XI" — before Bruce Dickinson returned to the band.

The third album in Blaze's "Infinite Entanglement" trilogy was released on March 2. Titled "The Redemption Of William Black", it is the tenth album of Blaze's solo career.

"The Redemption Of William Black" was co-written with Chris Appleton of fellow British metal band ABSOLVA. Chris, who also co-produced the album, is lead guitarist and backing vocalist in Blaze's band for recording and touring, together with his ABSOLVA bandmates Martin McNee (drums) and Karl Schramm (bass and backing vocals).
