Bakersfield, California, U.S. (2000 – present)

Formed in 2000, Adema began with Mark Chavez, Mike Ransom, Dave DeRoo, Tim Fluckey and Kris Kohls. The band later signed to Arista Records, releasing its first album, self-titled Adema, which was released in 2001. The first two singles from the album, The Way You Like It and Giving In, helped it sell over 600,000 copies.

The band followed up their debut with an EP and their second full length, which were met with limited success. Insomniac’s Dream (2002), an EP, sold only about 50,000 discs, while Unstable (2003) sold about 110,000. Following the release of Unstable, the band lost its guitarist, Mike Ransom, and left Arista shortly before the record company ceased business operations.

The band’s former lead singer, Mark Chavez, is the half-brother of KoЯn’s Jonathan Davis. When the band was launched, many criticized it for leaning on this relationship to gain attention, though it now seems unwarranted. In September 2004, Chavez had a falling-out with the band and was released from his duties as lead singer. He since had a band dubbed Midnight Panic. Mike Chavez has now went on hiatus.

Adema released their third full-length album, Planets, on their new label, Earache Records, in April 2005. Planets featured the band’s replacement for Chavez, Luke Caraciolli, who formerly sang in the band Rewind Yesterday. The first single from Planets, Tornado, was released in March 2005. The second single, the album’s title track, Planets, was released in September 2005.

    Бывают такие группы, творчеством которых проникаешься не сразу. Адема - одна из таких групп для меня. Волшебные.

    Couple of catchy hooks but the problem is their songs have never contained any actual substance... bands like Adema and Linkin Park were "metal" boy-bands no different than N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys, essentially. Sucks because bands like Flaw and 40 Below Summer are actually really cool.

    Мне все их вокалисты нравились. Все они разные по стилю, но каждый был неплох и альбомы все получались неплохие, но Topple the Giants - полное гавно, их гитарюге нужно продолжать играть на гитаре и не помышлять о пении, это не его.
