After Mike Portnoy left Dream Theater and a different drummer was selected for Avenged Sevenfold, many people were wondering what was in the future for the renowned drummer. Well, people didn’t have to wait long as Adrenaline Mob was announced. Comprised of Mike on drums with Russ Allen (Symphony X) on vocals, Mike Orlando (Sonic Stomp) and Rich Ward (Stuck Mojo, Fozzy) on guitars, with Paul DiLeo on bass, the five piece is bringing some hard rock/metal to the music scene.
Personally, I think it brings nothing new to the table but still sounds solid. I’d give it a few listens and then put it aside while I wait patiently for a full release.
After the jump, you can stream the entire Adrenaline Mob EP that is slated for release tomorrow.
