Editorial Reviews

2012 debut album from this supergroup. There's a new gang in town. They're tough and tight---knit, and they're not taking any prisoners. Bringing together acclaimed Symphony X singer Russell Allen, former Dream Theater and Avenged Sevenfold drum virtuoso Mike Portnoy, and Sonic Stomp shred extraordinaire Mike Orlando, Adrenaline Mob is a musical maGia of the highest order.

For years, bands like Dream Theater have gotten poor reviews from rock fan saying "it's too complicated", "there's too many notes", "not enough feeling". Now, Adrenaline Mob, a ROCK band is getting poor reviews from prog fans for being too "simple" and "dumb". As an avid fan of both, I have to say this album is incredible. If you're not a fan of bands like Stone Sour, Disturbed, Black Label Society, etc, you problably won't enjoy it. If you are, this should be a treat for you.
When blasted at full volume, these songs really kick some arse. Russell Allen, as always, is a beast on vocals. The more recent 'growl' in his voice fits this much better than the last couple of Symphony X albums, and he still belts out the high notes when he needs to. Mike Orlando has such a weird palm muted, stiff-armed style of shredding that even when you get used to it by the end of the album, it still sounds nasty. Mike Portnoy, known for his avid overplaying, really plays each note to perfection on this album. Each drum fill fits the moment or guitar lick perfectly and there's the occasional moment of time-feel shifting (yes, it stays in 4/4). Overall, all three guys keep up the energy throughout the album and make some songs that should be played on the radio (oh no, god forbid!). The mix is phenomenal and really lets them shine.
I will admit there's the occasional moment of cheese in the lyrics, but my overall rating of 4.5 rounds up to 5.

In conclusion, if you're simply a prog nerd and want odd signatures, movements and epics, this isn't for you. If you want some rock music to blast, GET IT!

Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community! If you discover something you like on my past review list, click "yes" on where it says: "was this review helpful?"!

I have been an off and on fan of Dream Theater. I have never listened to Sympnony X, but will be checking it out soon, based on Russel's performance here. Do I love a good solid, melodic, kick-ass metal disc? HELL YES I DO! I did not buy the EP, but OMERTA is awesome! Adrenaline Mob lives up to the promise of rocking, good time metal. Undaunted, kicks things off with a crunch. Psychosane, is cool. Indifferent, is one of the best tracks. All On The Line, is worth the purchase price by itself. Hit The Wall, hits you hard. Feelin Me, is cool, but the F Bombs and other language doesn't seem to be necessary, still cool song, just have to skip when kids around. Come Undone, is a very cool cover tune. Believe Me, another cool melodic metalpiece. Down To The Floor, will knock you down. Angel Sky, is the other ballad and a good balance to other heavy tracks. I love Feight Train, it kicks ass. I see some other reviews point out that Omerta isn't very technical, I agree. The band has stated it isn't supposed to be. This is a fun, melodic, grooving, fun, metal record. I wasn't sure what to think reading other reviews. Glad I took the chance. OMERTA is awesome. I highly recommend this disc!

Omertà
noun
(as practiced by the Mob/Mafia) a code of silence about criminal activity and a refusal to give evidence to authorities.

Cool title...actually had to look that up. And the small Mob that recorded Omertà is: Russell Allen - vocals (most known for Symphony X); Mike Portnoy - drums (most known for Dream Theater); and Mike Orlando - guitar/bass (most known for...um...playing guitar and bass on Adrenaline Mob's first record).

5 out of 11 stand out tracks on Omertà are the album's first 3 kick-off songs called Undaunted, Psychosane (in which Mike Orlando's Zakk Wylde influence loudly shreds), and Indifferent (that is also worth checking the video out for on YouTube). In the middle of the album, Believe Me is a driving Hard Rocker as well. And finally, an "interesting" track is the cover of Duran Duran's Come Undone with guest vocalist Lzzy Hale (of Halestorm). The other 6 songs probably won't last very long on my iPod. (8/21/2013: SEE EDIT BELOW.)

A lot of criticism of Omertà stems from Dream Theater's and Symphony X's fan base that justifiably expected a veteran Progressive Metal disk but got more of a straight up Hard Rock album. It was clearly a deliberate move and desire by Portnoy and Allen to record a Rock record, not another Prog record. And it sounds pretty good to me. I think that they'll gain some new fans with Omertà; and I don't think that they'll lose any due to the change in direction. But Dream Theater and Symphony X fans should listen to a few songs before purchasing this disk, because (some of) it may not be palatable to the Progressive Metal ear.
