Adrenaline Mob Invigorate New York City Crowd With Support From Nothing More and Awaken
With the word adrenaline being part of the band’s name, it’s no surprise that Adrenaline Mob brought the energy at Webster Hall’s Marlin Lounge last night (March 13) in New York City.
Frontman Russell Allen, who also is the singer in Symphony X, rocked his black fedora as he took the stage with his talented bandmates, drummer Mike Portnoy, formerly of Dream Theater, bassist John Moyer of Disturbed and serious shredding machine Mike Orlando.
The set started with the tracks ‘Psychosane, ‘Feelin’ Me’ and ‘Down to the Floor’ from their debut full length album ‘Omerta.’ Fans sang along as they performed their singles ‘Indifferent’ and ‘Undaunted.’
Adrenaline Mob also rocked out their cover of Badlands ‘High Wire’ and did a live premiere of their rendition of Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Lemon Song’ off of their new EP of cover tracks aptly titled ‘Coverta.’ Portnoy also did a drum tribute to the late Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, who passed away earlier this week.
‘Coverta’ is the Adrenaline Mob’s tribute to some of their favorite bands, so what better way to close out their rocking set than with their cover of the Black Sabbath tune ‘The Mob Rules.’
San Antonio band Nothing More was truly something more as their percussion filled sound and innovative usage of instruments onstage was absolutely mind blowing. By the end of their set they had turned the bass into a percussion instrument and everyone onstage became a drummer since there were drums all over the place. The tiny stage at Webster Hall’s Marlin Lounge was far too small for Nothing More’s high energy and impeccably coordinated performance.
Opening band Awaken kicked off the show with a stellar performance filled with some serious dueling guitar riffs and killer vocal range that shook the room. For a full list on the remaining dates and cities where you can catch these bands on tour with Adrenaline Mob, go here.
