95 was around the time of Psycho Motel, so visiting Solli in Norway perhaps?
Freeze said:I really enjoyed Psycho Motel's albums, especially the second one. It's annoying that they're so hard to get. And what about The Untouchables? Are their songs still available somewhere on the net? I think I saw a couple of live performances somewhere on myspace...

They certainly have some (back then) modern influences, but overall it's still melodic heavy rock and has nothing to do with the depressive grunge attitude.
The singers are actually quite talented, the songwriting is ranging from heavy tracks to some world class ballads and Adrian Smith's guitar playing is a no brainer anyway.
In my mind, Psycho Motel is one of the most underrated bands I have heard yet.
If these albums would been made by any popular 90s rockband they would have sold millions.
Mega said:EDIT3: I'm really sorry, but this is jus hillarious, off the wikipedia page:
"Adrian's solos are usually composed rather than improvised. His legato playing is very smooth and fast, and typically even his very fast passages have a musical function and relationship to the chord structure behind the solo, drawing from modes and arpeggios which are more often from the blues licks.Adrian is one of the most accomplished metal guitarists of this age. Adrian has evolved a tone and style that is all his own and is unique. Nobody sounds like Adrian, and that is priceless."
