British heavy metal vocalist Blaze Bayley (IRON MAIDEN, WOLFSBANE) played a special acoustic showcase on Saturday, January 10 in the lush surroundings of Castle Rock Studios, Alderley Edge, Cheshire, England. The performance marked the beginning of the 15th-anniversary celebration of Blaze's acclaimed first post-MAIDEN album, "Silicon Messiah".
Blaze was joined on acoustic guitar by Chris Appleton (of British metal band ABSOLVA), who plays lead guitar in Blaze's full metal touring band for Europe, as well as Chris' brother Luke, who is bassist with American power metallers ICED EARTH and has also previously played in Blaze's band.

As well his customary expansive tours of Europe and South America, on July 18, 2015, Blaze will play a special "Silicon Messiah" exclusive set at SOS Festival, Radcliffe, Manchester, England. That will be a full metal show with a backing band comprised of ABSOLVA bandmembers Chris Appleton (lead guitar), Martin McNee (drums) and Karl Schramm (bass). They will play the entire "Silicon Messiah" album, plus other tracks.
