BLAZE BAYLEY Seeking New Drummer

Former IRON MAIDEN/WOLFSBANE frontman Blaze Bayley is seeking a new drummer for his solo band following the recent departure of Rico Banderra. "Anyone who wants to be considered for this should have a minimum of 10 years playing experience and be as good as Jeff Singer and Jason Bold in the studio," says Blaze.

Metal Mind Productions released Blaze Bayley's DVD last month. Entitled "Alive in Poland", the disc was recorded at the 21st edition of the Metalmania Festival, which took place on March 24 in Katowice, Poland. Blaze Bayley and his band put on a 90-minute show consisting of the best tracks from BLAZE's discography as well as select cuts from IRON MAIDEN ("Man on the Edge", "Futureal"). The DVD also includes many great bonus features, such as an interview with Blaze Bayley, an interview with all members of Blaze's band (featuring footage filmed during their visit to Poland) and more. A limited-edition "Alive in Poland" release includes a two-CD set with songs recorded at the concert.

Bayley's most recent release, "Blood & Belief" (which came out under the BLAZE banner), was issued in Europe in April 2004. The follow-up to 2002's "Tenth Dimension" was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England with producer Andy Sneap (NEVERMORE, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY).
