Mike Orlando is the guitarist and founding member of the explosive hard rock group ADRENALINE MOB. The band released their debut album ‘Omerta’ on ECM/EMI in 2012 and landed at #5 Hard Rock Album on Billboard, #1 Metal Album on iTunes, and was iTunes UK Metal Album of the Year.
Mike also fronts his own Instrumental band Sonic Stomp and released his debut Instrumental CD ‘Sonic Stomp’ in 2007. The CD, which has achieved worldwide critical acclaim, contains 12 tracks which take the listener from raging over the top extreme rock guitar playing with sheer finesse and lightning speed to beautiful ballads with great emotional feel and everything in between.
Multi-talented, Mike is also the owner of his own recording studio, Sonic Stomp Studios where he handles everything from engineering, producing, mixing and mastering. When he’s not recording and mixing his own albums he does the same for other clients including working with producer John Moyer (Disturbed, Adrenaline Mob) on bands he brings to Sonic Stomp.
Mike has been featured in Guitar World Magazine, DVDs, and was also given the honor of being selected as a Top Finalist Worldwide for Guitar Player Magazine’s Guitar Superstar of the Year 2008 from thousands of passionate guitarists as well as other featured layouts. Mike most recently had the honor of being the guest guitarist on Season 14 of the widely popular TV show VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson & Jim Florentine.
