Mike Orlando - Sonic Stomp II - 2010 - Sonic Stomp Music

Your gonna give your guitar a nervous breakdown, lol..I almost took my lip and wrapped it around my head…Absolutely Amazing!" - Steve Vai

To say that Mike`s playing is intense is an understatement. He manages to showcase his monstrous technique, great command and killer chops in the context of cool tunes and does it all with a really nice sense of musicality. - Joe Stump

Michael has made the most extreme guitar album since Jason Becker’s Perpetual Burn. His death defying runs and techniques take his compositions into the next universe….should be the next guest on the next G3 tour. - Nick J. Hinton - Virtuosa Magazine-UK

American guitarist Mike Orlando was in the top ten finalists for Guitar Player magazine’s Guitar Superstar of the Year in 2008 and won Guitar Player magazine's Superstar Of The Year award in 2009. He has worked with musicians like Zakk Wylde and Bumblefoot and has worked with Symphony X vocalist, Russell Allen, on a project called Adrenaline Mob. His first solo album, “Sonic Stomp”, was released in 2006 to critical acclaim and the follow-up album, “Sonic Stomp II” includes guest players Mike Romeo, Mike Pinella, Gary Hoey, the late Shane Gibson, Joe Stump, John Macaluso, and Lenny Rocillo. Guitar prowess is put before compositional skills, but nevertheless, Mike Orlando is a hugely talented guitarist and if you like intense high calibre shredding, you may find it hard not to like and admire this album.
