Guitar Player magazine caught up with Adrenaline Mob guitarist Mike Orlando to touch on his band’s recently released EP of covers, Coverta.

Inside the July issue, the Charvel artist explains what it’s like covering the Door’s “Break on Through (to the Other Side),” and how he was very cautious in covering classic guitar solos from greats like Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and Black Sabbath.

“You can’t mess with greatness,” he said. “We picked iconic songs, and you run the risk of getting trampled on if you do things a different way.”

Moyer will be making his onstage debut with the group on March 12 at New York City’s Hiro Ballroom, a day before they release their debut full-length, Omertá.

“Mike Portnoy called me about auditioning for his new band Adrenaline Mob,” Moyer said in a statement. “He had heard through the grapevine that I was looking to stay busy while Disturbed is on hiatus. After jamming with Russ, MO, and Portnoy, the chemistry as musicians was undeniable. I am super stoked about joining ‘The Family’ and I can’t wait to hit the road with these guys and see what kind of musical mayhem we can create!”

Orlando, who also performs with Tred and Sonic Stomp, also recently sat down to run through his main guitar collection from the studio, picking up a Desolation Series axe, a So-Cal and a San Dimas.

Orlando then played “Shaga Duga” off Sonic Stomp II.
