Metal Express Radio interviewed Adrian Smith in 1996 before a gig with Psycho Motel. Hear him talk about his first solo project A.S.A.P., how being in Iron Maiden made him unfocused, what he thinks about Iron Maiden’s music after he left the band, about playing support for Iron Maiden and of course his current band Psycho Motel and their new album State of Mind


  • Stig G. Nordahl

    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..."
