Editorial Reviews

Promise and Terror finds the return of cherished former vocalist for Iron Maiden (Replacing Bruce Dickinson in the late 90's). It is a dark and emotional album that has already found much acclaim via its recent European release. For American fans this is the first album featuring a renewed, international new line up and contains eleven new songs, several with heart-felt lyrics dedicated to the unfortunate loss of the singer's wife in 2008. Truly waving the flag for classic sound of heavy metal, Promise and Terror is an album for fans new and old.

What can I say, this guy just gets it! Another fine slab of in your face, unpretentious modern metal! When I say modern I don't mean the trendy kind either. I just mean it sounds fresh and relevant and not dated at all. This is just powerful in your face metal the way it was meant to be played, just like what Blaze has been delivering since he parted from Iron Maiden and started putting out solo albums.

However this album may very well be his best yet! Picking up in the style of the last album (The Man Who Would not Die) Promise and Terror builds upon it's predicessor with an even more focused and tighter sound, a better production, and even better songs! Opening song 'Watching the Night Sky' just flat out rocks! Highly energenic and makes you want to crank up your stereo full blast! 'Madness and Sorrow' features long ripping trade off guitar solos, while '1633' is a bit more epic and Maidenish in nature. 'God of Speed' might just be the best song of the album, just a great creative song with a fantastic building chorus! The following 3 songs are all fantastic and album highlights as well!

The guitar playing on this album is Killer! As well as the drums and bass with a nice audible tone! And Blaze's vocals are in top form as well!

The last 4 songs are slower and I believe deal with the well documented loss of Blaze's wife. 3 of them I would consider ballads, and while not album highlights, they all are very well done with very personal and heartfealt lyrics obviously. 'The Trace of Things That have no Words' is more of a traditional mid-tempo metal track.

After the tragic loss of his wife, I was not expecting Blaze to release another album so soon, much less one even better than his awesome previous album (The Man Who Would Not Die).

Awesome, powerful album. Blaze Bayley never fails to disappoint. My brief thoughts on each track:

*Watching the Night Sky*
Great song. It starts off right away, fast, and maintains a steady flow of awesome throughout. What a nice way to kick off the album.

*Madness and Sorrow*
This one took a few listens to really click with me.. but once it did, I was hooked! Another fast, great song.

A solid track, this one. It starts off good, and slowly achieves greatness near the end. I like it.

*God of Speed*
Oh boy, God of Speed... I loved this one. Everything about it is just awesome. Blaze released a "taster clip" on his Myspace page, and I was immediately hooked.

*City of Bones*
This song was nice. Not one of my favorites from the album, but I enjoyed it none-the-less.
EDIT: City of Bones has really grown on me!

Another track Blaze teased us with prior to the release of the album. I love this song. It's a fast song, and very catchy. It really gets you pumped up for the rest of the album.

*Time to Dare*
Just coming off of Faceless, I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Right when Time to Dare started playing, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Right up there with God of Speed. I loved it right from the start. The album gets VERY interesting from here on out (in an epic way!)

*Surrounded by Sadness*
This, and the rest of the album's 3 tracks are connected. This one is very good, it's simple, yet deep. Blaze sounds incredible, and passionate with these last 4 songs.

*The Trace of Things That Have No Words*
Continuing seamlessly from Surrounded by Sadness, this one is just epic... Blaze is very powerful and awesome here.

I had no idea how awesome Blaze had become after Maiden. I picked up his 1st album Silicon Messiah a long time ago and while I thought it was good, I didn't follow him after that until recently when I found some of his live stuff and got curious about getting one of his live albums. I got the As Live As It Gets album and the live version of Tenth Dimension knocked my damn socks off! So did a lot of the other tracks on that album, so after that I started reading reviews for his other studio albums and based off of what I sampled off of this Promise and Terror album, I bought a copy on eb@y. The entire album is fantastic. It's unbelievable how good this album is. Every song is excellent, the production is sharp and crisp and clear. The musicians are amazing, it's a damn shame they aren't playing for him anymore. It will grow on you as well. At first I didn't get much past the first 4 songs because they were so good, but I would spin the rest of the album and after awhile track 7 Time To Dare jumped out at me. That song is amazingly awesome! The liner album sleeve is very well put together and a lot of thought went into it. The cover art is great. The concepts in the album are great. It's a very personal album and it may be the best and most honest and natural Blaze has ever sounded. This album is better than a lot of Iron Maiden albums and I don't mean that to insult Maiden, but it's that good. It may be up there with some of Bruce Dickinson's solo stuff like Accident of Birth and Chemical Wedding. I'm glad Blaze has continued to fly the flag for metal. This guy deserves more credit and support in the metal world because albums like these are like lost treasures in the metal world.
