Considering lead singer Blaze Bayley was forced out from the job he loved in IRON MAIDEN, this debut album for his new band, BLAZE, is a staggering achievement.
Brimming with well written songs, the strong dark voice of Bayley himself, the talented yong musicians, and some brilliant production from Andy Sneap, SILICON MESSIAH is every bit as good if not better than MAIDEN's new album BRAVE NEW WORLD.
10 tracks of pure heavy metal heaven, played with the kind of enthusiasm that makes you sit up and smile as you realise just what you're listening to is really something quite special.
Stand out tracks would have to be, the creative opener GHOST IN THE MACHINE (which warns us about how computers and technology will eventually overpower us all, a theme that is running through the album), the title track SILICON MESSIAH, the Maiden-esque BORN AS A STRANGER (one of the best songs I've ever heard), THE BRAVE, THE LAUNCH and the closing epic STARE AT THE SUN.
So, despite the undeserved stick that Bayley received when with IRON MAIDEN, his debut album as BLAZE proves beyond all doubt what a talent he is. One of the few genuine MUST HAVE albums, SILICON MESSIAH is essential listening and not to be missed. A classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid, enjoyable Metal album. 10 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
From the start, Blaze Bayley was never going to have an easy time of it. Brought into Iron Maiden to replace the most impressive vocalist in the genre, his vocals were great, but by that time Dickinson's air-raid siren voice had become as much a part of the band's style as the Steve Harris 12-minute Classic. So, when Dickinson returned, a nice little payoff for Bayley saw the original Maiden line-up reform into the band that their fans had always loved.
Blaze may have loved working with Iron Maiden, but being freed from the band is probably the best thing that could have happened for both Maiden and him. Maiden's reformed line-up returned to their impressive, distinctive form, while Blaze followed up by forming his own band and releasing Silicon Messiah. And it's a good thing - because finally, we're treated to a band whose style is built around Blaze's voice, rather than stuck in the absence of Dickinson's.
His voice, which was always good, is allowed to come into its own here, ringing out over the top of thumping power-chords and beats. The work bears some of the hallmarks of his time with Maiden - and it's doubtless that he gained something from the time he spent working with them - but it's often more aggressive than much of Maiden's work, if anything, sounding more like a pumped-up Powerslave than a Seventh Son.
To the school of Maiden fans, the album may seem a little unadventurous - Maiden fans are, after all, treated to probably the most adventurous music in the Metal genre - but it's still an excellent album, and superior even in that regard to almost all of its peers.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best CD's in the last 15 -20 years 1 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Blaze Bayley has entered a new realm with this master piece. I loved him with Iron Maiden, and now he truly enlightened me with Silicon Messiah. The album is reminiscent of The 1st two Dio CD's ( Holy Diver & The last in line) and of "Chemical Wedding" by Bruce Dickinson. Silicon Messiah is heavier than the new Iron Maiden album, which I have recently ignored because of boredom, to focus my attention on Blaze's exhilarating performance which I just can't get enough of, although he still is not at the same level as Bruce Dickinson vocally, his writing, research, and literary talents are just as good if not better. I give this CD 5 Stars and think it is one of the best CD's in the last 3 years that I have purchased. Metallica should learn from this CD, it is a group hungry young musicians who have great talents and want to prove there worth. Most artists can't even fill one side of an album any more with good songs, this one rocks from the opening of Ghost in the Machine to the very end, Stare at the sun. I give it a "Strong Buy" rating, an album you can't do without if you are a true heavy metal fan. My favorite song is "The Brave", it is very similar to "Futureal" the song Blaze helped write with Steve Harris when he was with Iron Maiden. So if you are a fan of Blaze buy this CD Now! It is very much worth it. "Learn to be silent. Let your mind listen and absorb" (Pythagoras) Up The Irons!

5.0 out of 5 stars Silicon Messiah, B L A Z E review 29 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those of you who don't know, Blaze Bayley is the former frontman of British metal bands Wolfsbane and Iron Maiden. After parting ways with the Maiden lads in 1999 (allowing for former vocalist Bruce Dickinson to rejoin), Blaze has since formed his own metal band, B L A Z E. This is their debut album, and certainly one of the best metal albums of all time. There is a general, sci-fi concept theme running through the album (The first 3 tracks are part of a story, and the last 3 tracks are part of a seperate story)which works well with Blaze's dark vocals. The opening track, Ghost in the Machine, starts the album perfectly: Loud, not too fast, and with a terrific yet simple chorus. Evolution and the title track continue this perfectly. The fourth track (the excellent Born as a Stranger) is incredible, with possibly the best chorus on the album. The Hunger shows the diversity and range of Blaze's voice, bringing a different mood to the album. Up next is The Brave, a hard and fast rocker with yet another excellent chorus.Identity continues the album with a moody theme, which contrasts with the next song, the anthemic Reach for the Horizon.The Launch is a short up-tempo song with great riffs and vocals. The album closer, the emotional Stare at the Sun, ends the album perfectly with rousing vocals and brilliant lyrics. All in all, a top class album, just like other BLAZE releases: Tenth Dimension and As Live As It Gets. I cannot wait until their fourth studio album, Blood and Belief.
