Formed in 2011 by Symphony X front-man Russel Allen, guitarist Mike Orlando and former Dream Theater drummer MIke Portnoy, Adrenaline Mob is a heavy metal outfit based in New York. Within a year after forming, the band added a bassist and rhythm guitarist, hashing out the group's lineup. After playing its first few gigs, it earned a fan base with online promotional videos that helped build some hype for the group's 2012 debut album Omertà. The LP demonstrates the band's signature use of commanding guitar riffs and shredding solos. Adrenaline Mob held its album release party at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City, the same venue of its debut performance.
