Our top 10 Adrenaline Mob songs list looks at the catalog of an American band revered for its contribution to the metal scene. Formed in the early 2010s, Adrenaline Mob established itself as a powerhouse in the music scene with its hard-hitting heavy metal sound influences. Other than heavy metal, Adrenaline Mob’s sound repertoire also features a mixture of alternative metal and hard rock sound influences.
Among the original members of the band include former Avenged Sevenfold and Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, guitarist Mike Orlando, and Symphony X singer Russell Allen. The trio went ahead to consider adding rhythm guitarist Rich Ward and bassist Paul Di Leo to the band’s lineup. It is worth noting that rhythm guitarist Rich Ward was (and still is) a member of the bands Fozzy and Stuck Mojo.
In addition, bassist Paul Di Leo also served as a member of the band Fozzy. Paul also featured in a number of Gold/Platinum-certified albums issued by the German pop musician Nena. Unfortunately, Rich Ward and Paul Di Leo’s membership at Adrenaline Mob was short-lived with the duo departing in 2012.
Since the departure of Rich Ward, guitarist Mike Orlando took on the rhythm guitarist role. Adrenaline Mob has also had a few lineup changes especially on the bass. The departure of Paul Di Leo saw the band recruit bassist John Moyer of the heavy metal act Disturbed. Moyer served in the band until 2014 having his position taken by bassist Eric Leonhardt. After serving for three years as the band’s bassist, Eric was replaced by bassist David Zablidowsky, who also played with Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Unfortunately, David’s tenure at Adrenaline Mob was short-lived—David lost his life after he was involved in an accident as the band was traveling for a concert. Since David’s departure, Mike Orlando took on the studio bass roles. Notably, David was Adrenaline Mob’s second member to have lost his life after the death of former Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero. Pero died in 2015 having served as a drummer in Adrenaline Mob since 2013—the drummer had been recruited as a replacement for Mike Portnoy who had left Adrenaline Mob after two years of service.
