Legendary Swedish viking/death masters UNLEASHED just released their new masterpiece „Odalheim” today!
With Odalheim UNLEASHED not only present the successor of As Yggdrasil Trembles in the year 2012, but also continue telling their post-doomsday story embedded with Norse mythology.
After the mighty world tree Yggdrasil had trembled and rung in the end of the world, Fimbul winter followed with three years of darkness and coldness. During which time Mother Nature took back what was rightfully hers. This caused the end of life as we know it, Ragnarök. But the warriors who’ve survived will build a new world out of the old one’s ashes. It is here that the story of Odalheim begins.

Adrenaline Mob recently parted ways with guitarist Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO, FOZZY) and bassist Paul DiLeo. Portnoy issued the following 0statement:
“Rich Ward (guitar; STUCK MOJO, FOZZY) and Paul (DiLeo; bass) are no longer part of Adrenaline Mob. The core of this band has always been the three of us (including SYMPHONY X vocalist Russell Allen and SONIC STOMP guitarist Mike Orlando). The album was written and recorded that way. We later added Rich and Paul as part of the original touring lineup and we had a blast touring with them. However, they both had other projects and priorities and could not give a full-time commitment to Adrenaline Mob. We’re all still friends and we wish them all the best in their other bands, but for now, our focus is entirely on Adrenaline Mob, the release of Omertà on 3/13/12, and hitting the road hard and playing for you all soon!”
