I have Italian roots, you know, the name Orlando. Thatís why we flirt with the mafia thing. Everything has some kind of meaning in Adrenaline Mob.
There is nothing better than someone telling you that your song or music in general touched them personally or even changed their life in some small way.
He asked us to record some extra songs to make it a full length, but stubborn as we are, we didnít want to do that.
Er is weinig Rock ín Roll aan Rome.
There is one thing I did learn and that is patience, because I sure wasn't born with it.
We write what we love and write songs we want to hear. Never once have we worried about what label it will fall into.
We arenít interested in playing the super technical shit, and sometimes our riffs come off as downright primitive, we just let the filth flow.
I think every band wins and looses fans with every album they release.
We also put more emphasis on the guitar and less on the keyboards, since we donít have a live keyboarder anymore.
The original idea was to write Stockholm style death metal like Entombed and Dismember, but it ended up turning out completely different.
Our albums are different because they reflect where we are at that time. We only follow our hearts when we write.
Losing a close friend or family member reminds you of how short life is. Itís not to be taken for granted. Be grateful and make the most of your existence.
The thing about old school thrash is there should always be a bit of tongue in cheek humour going on.
I think it is important for people to stop thinking from left and right perspective and start thinking for each other from a freedom perspective. Freedom always leads to peace and prosperity for people.
Our live shows are more of an avenue to release the built up tension, thatís the one place where we also feel the most comfortable.
I had huge goals for this album. For the first time in years ďI was sweating like a hooker in church" when entering that recording room.

We all evolve, but some do it more than others.
I think he digs deeper than people give him credit for.
We do like to make big, stacked choirs in some parts, sort of like BG does it, but that's about it.
You think of a red line that goes through the album, and you keep in mind the diversity, and that chemistry has to match perfectly.
I want to make a difference, I know I canít change the whole world, but if I can change one personís world for the better, thatís enough to make it worthwhile.
Weíre so grateful to hear such positive response in return.
We could write a book about what went wrong while making this album.
Those stories we were told and read as a kid. Damn, some of them are just downright cruel and horrible! I could not imagine reading some of them as a bedtime story for my kids.
True metal is not measured by the amount of bucks.
For a while, my main instrument was the drums! I had a kind of love/hate relation to keyboards for quite some time in my youth.
Ze moeten zo veel geld bijleggen en er is maar een kleine kans dat ze bekend worden in het buitenland, dat was het gewoon niet waard.
70.000 Tons of Metal was ace! I felt pretty privileged! After all these years of just doing what I want, I was sitting on a luxury cruise and I was actually getting paid, I did not have to pay! We only had to play two short shows, one hour each.
