In 1996 Type O Negative released their fourth album October Rust that followed their platinum selling album Bloody Kisses. This interview with guitarist Kenny Hickey was conducted in August as the new album was hitting the shelves in the record stores. Kenny talks that the band “shitting their pants” by the thought of recording a sequel to Bloody Kisses, the three years between the albums, the reason for calling the album October Rust, that he doesn’t look at the band as Goth, and much more!

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
