Inför Sweden Rock 2019: Intervju med Blaze Bayley

21 Shares

Med mindre än 24 timmar kvar till årets festival fortsätter vi med Rocknytts intervjuserie ”Inför Sweden Rock 2019” vidare. Näst på tur är Blaze Bayley som Rocknytts Andreas Östlund fick ställa några frågor till.

2019 blir det 25 år sedan den stolte heavy metal-förkämpen Blaze Bayley blev sångare i Iron Maiden. Detta firar han med en jubileumssetlista, exklusiv för europeiska festivaler och med enbart låtar från Iron Maidens plattor med honom på sång. “Sign of the cross”, “Man on the edge”, “Futureal”, “Lord of the flies”, “Virus”, “The clansman” … alla dessa klassiker, och fler därtill, utlovas. En storslagen tillbakablick på en epok med kultstatus för inbitna Iron Maiden-fans, och som aldrig tidigare gjorts i denna form.

2009 was the year Blaze last played on SRF (SRF notes). How does it feel to play here again?
– My last appearance at Sweden Rock festival was 2014. This will be my 3rd time at this amazing festival. I’m very excited about celebrating 25 years since joining Iron Maiden. It’s such a great vibe. The wonderful staff really did everything to help me perform my best in my 2014 appearance. I had a great time.

Do you have any own special memories from SRF?
– I did a free meet and greet at the barrier in front of the stage right after the show and the fans I met there were really cool.

What’s your thoughts about the SRF setlist?
– It’s really nice to perform these songs again. They are from an important part of my career. It’s nice to sing those old songs with the voice I have now. I’m singing better than ever. It’s like seeing old friends wearing new clothes. The songs are the same but with a fresh feeling.

Which bands would you not miss yourself at the festival?
– Slayer, Behemoth, Disturbed!

Will you play at some more festivals in 2019?
– Yes I play Rock the Coast (Spain), Headbangers Open Air (Germany), Mannried Open Air (Switzerland), Dark River Festival (Finland), Rising Fest (France), British Steel Festival (France). These are all Iron Maiden 25th anniversary sets.

What’s the plans for you in the near future?
– After the summer festivals I will play Part 2 of my Tour of the Eagle Spirit & on that tour will record a new live DVD & CD in Brno, Czech Republic. I will also begin writing for a new full metal album in 2020.

Finally, I would like to know what is Blaze favorite song to perform live?
– My favourite song changes with my moods, but “Infinite Entanglement” is one that connects deeply and fills me with energy & emotion every time I perform it. So at the moment that is my favourite song to perform live.
