BODS Mayhem Hour recently spoke with Mike Orlando, guitarist of Adrenaline Mob and Sonic Stomp. He discusses his first official instrumental DVD entitled Sonic Stomp: Live In Studio From Brazil. Orlando also talks about working with Aquiles Priester, Tony McAlpine, Junior Carelli and Fernando Quesada, and how he is still recovering from the July 2017 accident that resulted in the death of Adrenaline Mob bassist David Zablidowsky and tour manager Janet Rains (aka Jane Train).
Asked whether adrenaline mob will resurface at some point, Orlando offered the following:
"I don't know. We've been through so much bad times and so much hurt, so much just pain. I mean, it's still ongoing. I'm going in, this Friday, for my fourth procedure on my neck, so it's still fresh. I just don't say anything. I just keep trying to move forward, and I'm happy to still be here and be breathing from that horrific accident. I love Adrenaline Mob. It's my baby. I loved it. It's incredible music. Russell Allen is an incredible singer, and all the guys that we've had... the amazing Mike Portnoy, and all the guys in the band. It's been great, but then there's been so much bad. So it's tough to get over."
Orlando recently released his Sonic Stomp DVD. It features drummer extraordinaire Aquiles Priester, keyboardist Junior Carelli, and bassist Fernando Quesada. The DVD was recorded live in the studio in Brazil and features Orlando performing 12 killer tracks from his Sonic Stomp releases. The DVD includes full band performances and solo performances.
