Adrenaline Mob: Live Photos @ Starland Ballroom (3/21/2015)

On Friday, March 20th the sad news was announced about longtime Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero passing away. He was currently on tour with Adrenaline Mob who he had joined not too long ago and recorded their “Men Of Honor” album. The band was currently rocking their fans with the newest album “Dearly Departed” when A.J. left us. On Saturday night, Adrenaline Mob would perform again and do so in honor of their fallen band mate. PiercingMetal’s good friend Nicole Geib was in attendance and shared several photos that she took from the barricade and a quick summary for our readers. I would have loved to be on point myself but had already scheduled coverage of the Enslaved show at Gramercy Theatre. Check it out below.

“Adrenaline Mob played a beautiful tribute show to AJ Pero last night at Starland Ballroom, and Mike Portnoy reunited with them to honor AJ. It was part of the Drowning Pool tour, but those guys really helped to honor AJ by wearing their Adrenaline Mob shirts while playing AND by letting Adrenaline Mob play last and headline the show. AJ was a truly wonderful, genuine, and kind man, and this show was really a beautiful tribute to him. AJ’s son even joined the guys on stage briefly, and received condolences from them. For the finale, Jay Jay French came on stage, grabbed his guitar, and they closed the show with Twisted Sister’s You Can’t Stop Rock & Roll. RIP AJ. Your memory will live on forever even though you could not.”

“Coverta” by Adrenaline Mob

Artist: Adrenaline Mob
Title: “Coverta”
Label: Elm City Music
Release Date: 3/12/2013
Genre: Heavy Metal/Groove Metal
Rating: 4/5

I’ll start by hoping that you already know a little bit about the band Adrenaline Mob, and if not this is the high-energy Groove Metal band originally formed by Russell Allen and Mike Orlando that also features both Mike Portnoy and John Moyer. Last year they released their debut album “Omerta” and now have given us an album of cover songs that goes under the clever title of “Coverta”. There. You are all caught up with us so let’s discuss “Coverta” which is by the way an album of cover tunes. Now I am sure that an EP of this kind might surprise some new folks to the band because it is their second release, but its existence will be something that the more tenured fans are welcoming with open arms based on the fact that the band is known for doing some covers during the context of a live show. I’ve seen them in action twice since this lineup was fashioned and can honestly say that they do this for the love of the bands being covered more than a need for set filler. Now let’s talk a little bit about what they opted to deliver on “Coverta”.
