Adrenaline Mob Singled Out Week: Psychosane
Psychosane started off as a song I tracked many years actually prior to teaming up with Russ & forming Adrenaline Mob. Our usual method of me bringing the recorded tracks over to Russells Chanty Shack & gettin to work on Lyrics & melodies with Russ was again the norm here.. Though on a break I added the release of the song where MP sings over & the section before the solo as a direct inspiration from Portnoys incredible playing style & saying to myself, this will be perfect for Mike & myself to really lean into this section & sync up together. After the basic song was arranged Russ & I started hitting lyrics & melodies. The title was already there & was something I had from way back when.. It was inspired by the movie American Psycho actually where the main character seemed at times so sane & in control but then would just cut someone to pieces. Russ & I then turned it more to the musical factor of it cutting you to the core with the power of the song.
The track has a real cool overall bounce & hop to it which is something I love to convey in songs. The verse has got a cool Pantera vibe where Russ hit these insane powerful notes that rip through your brain.
The pre chorus was something Mike P. always said he heard there..big 3 part harmonies ala Alice in Chains vibe which I feel jumps out of the track in a great way & sets up the slammin groove of the chorus. The energy of solo I felt had to match the songs so I went for it in true Adrenaline style & ending with a real cool Talkbox, which live Russ & I do together! Psychosane just really encompasses many aspects of Adrenaline Mob & is one of my favorite tracks!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the EP right here!
