When longtime vocalist Bruce Dickinson left Iron Maiden in 1993, many fans
feared that the band was finished. But the rest of the band decided to stick it
out, finding a replacement in ex-Wolfsbane frontman "Blaze" Bayley. On
Maiden's first recording with Bayley, 1995's THE X FACTOR, the band sticks to
the same musical direction of its early-'90s work: straightforward, heavy tunes.
Bayley's voice couldn't have been more different than that of his predecessor. While Dickinson sang in a higher register (often in an operatic style), Bayley was more of a bassy, low-down belter--just listen to such tracks as "Man on the Edge" and "Lord of the Flies" for proof. Unfortunately, the new lineup didn't have the same staying power as the Dickinson-fronted era, lasting for only one more recording.
