Adramelech the Chancellor of Hell, President of the Senate of the demons and supervisor of Satan's wardrobe. Adramelech Unquestionably one of the originators of the old-school finnish death metal sound was formed in 1991 by Jarkko Rantanen in Loimaa, Finland - population 7000. Influenced by such bands as Morbid Angel, Deicide, Bolt Thrower, Grave, Sinister, Vader and Carcass, throughout it's career, Adramelech was constantly troubled by the ongoing line-up changes, but managed to pull out a decent catalogue of death metal releases through out the years. Lyrically dealing with ancient mythology Adramelech was shadowed by more succesfull finnish bands such as Amorphis, Demigod, Impaled Nazarene and Mordicus, instead it lurked in the shadows making it's name in underground circles. At first, wearing the status of "little brother of Demigod", which members appeared on the line up, Adramelech released a rehearsal tape "Human Extermination" and a demo "Grip of Darkness" (1992). Soon they got signed to Adipocere Records (FRA) which released it's first official release "Spring of Recovery -7" (1992). The first long creative break followed, forcing members to learn totally new instruments to be able to continue with the path they chose. In 1994 Repulse Record's Dave Rotten, a huge fan of finnish death metal sound, woke up the band and released "The Fall" minicd. When "the older brother" chose to explore more thrashier style, Adramelech stuck to their guns and kept on delivering uncompromising 100% pure death metal and in 1996 it was rewarded with the first full length, "Psychostasia" released by Repulse Records. In 1997, the band was in it's ultimate form and the result, in my opinion, one of the most crushing death metal releases of all times, "Seven" MCD blessed with the classic Tico Tico studio production. Again, shortly after the release, the band was blistered with another line-up problem and was briefly brought back to life for Repulsive tour in 1998 with Incantation, Deeds of Flesh and Avulsed. In 1998, new members were brought in and for the first time, Jarkko left the vocal duties to concentrate on drums. The new line up was strong, but faced another problem with the release of the second album, having to form a label of their own, SEVERE MUSIC, in order it to be released. "Pure Blood Doom" was finally out in 1999...cursed with the saying "what goes around, comes around" the band was again put on hold with line-up difficulties in late 2000. The final Adramelech line-up gathered to record their last release "Terror of Thousand Faces" in 2002, and was released by Xtreem Music (ex-Repulse) three years later as for now Adramelech has been laid to rest. Will there ever be another release? Who knows, once again the decision lies on Jarkko's shoulders, the guy who's musical creation Adramelech has always been. If "Terror of Thousand Faces" remains as their last offering, "Orphica Holodemiurgia" is a perfect testament for the beast of Adramelech with it's truly sinister athmosphere...long live the unmerciful Adramelech!!! I AM THE RULER OF ETERNITY AND OLDEST OF PREMIVAL GODS AND MY SOUL IS THE SOUL OF THE ETERNAL GODS AND MY EMBODIMENT IS CALLED ETERNITY. MY FORM IS EVERLASTING, FOR I AM THE LORD OF YEARS - THE RULER OF ETERNITY!!! This site is runned by Adramelech members.
