Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden - Primal Rock Rebellion

SQUEEEEEEEEEEE My love for Adrian is infinite. So when the news dropped January 2 about a new project I was over the moon. Adrian has teamed up with Mikee Goodman to produce something fun and moving and groovy and so totally NOT Iron Maiden! The first track - I See Lights is frakking awesome. Adrian plays guitar and bass on the track. It's hard rock done darn good. It's driving and wicked and dirty.

The vocals are totally in the gutter. The guitar playing is, of course, supurb! It's more metal and heavy than anything H has done for Maiden in years! The drumming is just in your face! I'm liking this a lot. If H had written like this for the last snooze fest of a Maiden album that was The Final Frontier it would've made the album more bearable.

Says Adrian Smith, "It was interesting doing this album with Mikee not least because we have quite different influences. I was really pleased with the way it turned out. It has a really fresh feel to it."

The full album will be available on Spinefarm Records on 27th of February. You can listen to the first track here: I See Lights
