"Planets" (Earache; 2005)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
How the hell did Adema end up on Earache, the home of the heavy? Well, however they wound up there, here they are again (sans Jonathan Davisí kid brother Marky Chavez, replaced by equally generic Luke Caraccioli) and still following the action movie soundtrack guide to hard rock songwriting.
If you still dig music in the nu-metal vein, Adema is still carrying around its tattered flag and, much like its past efforts, "Planets" really doesn't do anything to illicit interest by anyone over 16 years old and female.

This Bakersfield, California band has a definite "Korn" sound and that's no coincidence as the lead singer (Mark Chavez) is half brother to Korn's Johnathan Davis. Although I'm not a big fan of Korn, I do like these guys. They take their music two levels higher. The guitar work of both Tim and Mike add a new sound that compares favorably to Static-X.
One of my favorites on this debut CD is track number four, "Freaking Out." This was (once again) due to the interesting guitar sounds of Mike and Tim. I also had the privilege of seeing the video for "Giving In" on MTV-X. Great video, great song.
If Adema plays live in your area, by all means, check
them out. And, if you like your rock'n'roll on the heavy side, pick up
Adema is: Mark "Marky" Chavez - Vocals; Kris Kohls - Drums; Tim Fluckey - Guitar; Mike Ransom - Guitar; Dave DeRoo - Bass

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
