Adrenaline Mob


Adrenaline Mob

Jeez. If I met these guys on a regular street, I’d probably soil myself. They definitely look pretty badass. But separated by the Internet Data Superhighway? No problem. This is Adrenaline Mob, and their drummer sounds like that guy from Dream Theater. Oh. Never mind. It is that guy from Dream Theater, Mike Portnoy … or rather the guy who used to be in Dream Theater. Also Symphony X frontman Russell Allen, guitarists Mike Orlando and Rich Ward, and bassist Paul DiLeo. No keyboard player? Perhaps they ate him for lunch. Well, just saying.

Even with all these prog and proggish luminaries, they claim this is an old-school metal band, not prog-metal. Well, I’ve heard a preview of their songs on their Facebook page, and as far as one can tell from a collage of snippets, there’s enough prog content here to make for at least a couple of good listens … as long as you don’t hate prog-metal. They haven’t released an album yet, but look for one soon.

Oh, and this obviously isn’t the Morse-Morse-Portnoy-Larue-McPherson band, which near as I can tell still doesn’t have a name yet. — Fred Trafton
