Much of Adrenaline Mob’s star appeal left when Mike Portnoy quit the band (hopping from one side project to another), which left their second album almost unnoticed, which is saying a lot considering that the band’s debut was highly mediocre. Only Russell Allen and Mike Orlando remain from the original lineup, but Twisted Sister’s AJ Pero and ex-Tantric bassist have joined to beef the squad up, though it’s no longer the legendary supergroup that it once was. Either ways, the foursome have decided to release a follow up to their successful Coverta EP with a full-length album filled with covers and a couple of as-yet-unreleased tracks. If you’re not sure what to expect, their version of Charles Daniels’ ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’ ought to give you a rough idea of what’s going to be on the album – hard-hitting takes on everything from country to Queen.
Headbang on, cowboy.
