ADRENALINE MOB's Mike Portnoy & John Moyer Discuss NEW Album At The Revolver Golden Gods
Last Wednesday April 11th, America’s only Hard Rock and Heavy Metal award show took over downtown Los Angeles! The fourth annual REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARD SHOW presented by Epiphone® rocked out at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles. For the first time ever, the event was broadcast live in its entirety on Xbox LIVE, as well as on the Xbox and Revolver Facebook pages.
Prior to the kick off of the awards show, we had the chance to chat with ADRENALINE MOB's Mike Portnoy and John Moyer about what the Golden Gods mean to the Heavy Music world and what is setting apart ADRENALINE MOB's NEW album 'Omertá' (available now via Elm City Records). Here is our interview with members of ADRENALINE MOB at the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
Adrenaline Mob will be touring with Kill Devil hill in support of their Elm City Records debut 'Omertá'. The record debuted Top 5 on the Billboard Rock Album chart when it was released on March 13. The band reached #5 on the chart and also was #62 on the Billboard Top 200 selling over 6600 copies its first week. The album has been getting amazing reviews with Revolver declaring "If you dig hard-hitting modern Metal, then Adrenaline Mob's 11-track debut offers some monstrous moments." Adrenaline Mob formed in 2011 when Sonic Stomp founder Orlando, who had been working on a collection of songs, approached Symphony X vocalist Allen with a concept and idea for the band. Together they joined forces and refined those ideas. Allen then reached out to long-time friend and ex Dream Theater/Avenged Sevenfold drummer Portnoy to see if he had any interest in playing with them. Portnoy jumped on-board and from the very first note, the chemistry and sound was apparent. In late 2011, Portnoy recruited Disturbed's Moyer to fill the vacant bass slot and the beast that is known as Adrenaline Mob was born.
