BLAZE, the British band led by former IRON MAIDEN/WOLFSBANE singer Blaze Bayley, have set "Blood and Belief" as the title of their third studio album, tentatively due in March 2004 through SPV Records. The group, who finished recording the CD on December 20, performed the album's projected title track Saturday night (December 27) at the third annual BLAZE Big Bash at Dudley JB's in England.As previously reported, BLAZE utilized the services of former PITCHSHIFTER drummer Jason Bowld during the recording sessions for follow-up to 2002's "Tenth Dimension", which took place at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire together with producer Andy Sneap. Also recording with the group was bassist Wayne Banks (SABBAT, MESSIAH'S KISS), who has fulfilled most of this year's touring commitments with the band following the departure of Rob Naylor in April. The mixing process for "Blood and Belief" is set to commence in early January.
