BLAZE BAYLEY
PROMISE AND TERROR
CANDLELIGHT

PROMISE AND TERROR is former Iron Maiden singer Blaze Bayley’s latest effort, an 11-track offering with discernibly traditional metal flair (“Faceless”). Bolstered by a set of rudimentary yet rousing arrangements where Bayley’s emotionally charged mid-range can shine (“Letting Go of the World”), this effort doles out a basic yet effective metal attack linking Sanctuary and Iced Earth (“God of Speed”) with a few expected variations such as the acoustic intro of “Surrounded by Sadness” strewn in for good measure. Cloaked with the darkness of Bayley’s recent personal tragedies and administering a by the book metal assault, this disc yields a solid listen for those with metal’s classic era in mind.
