Expanding on the hard rock grooves of their 2012 debut, New York-based supergroup Adrenaline Mob return with Men of Honor, an 11-song onslaught of classic melodic metal. In keeping with the group's "brotherhood of rock" approach, the album's title was actually suggested by guitarist Mike Orlando's father. Following 2013's covers EP Covertà and invigorated from their summer tour, Adrenaline Mob set to work on what they considered an even more cohesive and unifying set of songs than their debut. With newly acquired drummer A.J. Pero integrated into the gang, the refreshed group entered the studio later that year to create Men of Honor. Amid the shredding solos and aggressive hooks are newly employed acoustic guitars and other textural aspects that push the boundaries of their hard-driving sound.
