Paul Andrews, better known as Di'Anno might be rejoining Maiden (after the exit of Dickinson in 1993), but the speculation proved to be false, as Maiden hooked up with former Wolfsbane vocalist Blaze Bayley, before reuniting with Dickinson in 1999.

By the dawn of the new millennium, Di'Anno's words: "It's like having Mussolini and Adolf Hitler run your band. Because it is Rod Smallwood and Steve Harris and that's it. There can't be anyone else and my character is too strong for that so me an' Steve was always fighting".

Di'Anno's book "The Beast", Hurley had become an "egomaniac" and the drummer Falck a "liability", so they were thrown out the band. As Hurley and Falk had been responsible for the writing of "Fighting Back" in its entirety, there were concerns about this move. Their places were taken by ex-Persian Risk members Graham Bath and Steve Hopgood respectively following the tour's completion.

The second album to be released was entitled "Children of Madness" and achieved considerable commercial success. The video for "I Don't Wanna Know" was played in rotation on MTV in the US. Drugs and infighting again put a strain on the band. Towards the end of the final tour, most members had quit leaving Di'Anno (1999-2001, 2003-2007)

Following the demise of the new Battlezone unit put together in 1998.
