Unless you were at their debut show in NYC, fans still haven’t gotten the chance to hear full material from Adrenaline Mob. Well thanks to Tama Drums, at least we have an idea of what the drums will sound like in one of Mike Portnoy’s new groups.
Tama Drums have posted a video of the former Dream Theater drummer testing out their new Silverstar kits. The video features drum-cam footage of Portnoy playing on the kit during soundcheck and during the debut show. Though we probably get a better idea of what the new material sounds like through the Facebook sampler posted a while back, the drum-cam video still gives us more of a taste for the material (unless you think their cover of “Mob Rules” is an indicator for what the band will sound like).
You can watch the video for yourself up top. Adrenaline Mob, which also features Symphony X’s Russell Allen and Stuck Mojo/Fozzy’s Rich Ward, will be releasing an EP just in time for their opening stint on Godsmack’s tour and their own headlining club shows. A full length album isn’t expected to be released until early 2012.
