2010, Blaze Bayley started his musical career as the lead vocalist of Tamworth heavy metal/hard rock band Wolfsbane, upon their formation in 1984. When Bruce Dickinson departed fellow English heavy metal band Iron Maiden in 1993, Bayley was chosen as his replacement in 1994 after hundreds of auditions. PROMISE AND TERROR is the fifth studio album by Blaze Bayley. It is the second studio album released by the band since they changed their name from ´Blaze`. It is also the first Blaze Bayley-album without a title track. Some of the band's members has claimed that PROMISE AND TERROR is going to be an album which includes a lot of new elements, although it is going to be really dark, melancholic and progressive at times, as THE MAN WHO WOULD NOT DIE.
