Adramelech was founded 1991 in Loimaa, Finland, and was later considered a "little brother of Demigod", hailing from the same town later and with less success. The band got it's name of the Sumerian/Babylonian demon ( please correct me ). The lyrical themes were, from the beginning, influenced by different nations beliefs and mythologies ( Ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Greek, Scandinavian etc. ). Musically they remained pretty similar, basic Old-School Death metal, by not changing too much along the way. Despite their big influnce of mythology , they didn't use any special instruments.
Year 1991 they released their first demo "Human Extermination". Year 1992, they got signed at the first time for an french label Adipocere and recorded "Spring of Recovery" EP. After this, few years of silence, during which they recorded an independent demo "Grip of Darkness"'95 and got signed, now to Spanish Repulse records, through which Adramelech recorded "The Fall" EP at the same year.
Following first full-length "Psychostasia"'96 was released by Spanish Repulse records, owned by Dave Rotten ( who was known to be a hell of a Finnish DM fan). Also next (Generally considered Adramelech's high-point) EP "Seven"'98 was the most brutal and crushing release from the band. The following to last albums "Pure Blood Doom"'99 and "Terror of Thousand Faces" '05 managed to continue the safe DM-line of Adramelech. After this, the band was put in a hold-on, where they still remain today.
Adramelech has been one of the few bands that have managed to from in the hottest aeon of DM in Finland and still keep their DM style till so late as 2005 with only minor changes and no split-ups, disrupitons whatsoever.

This is from their first full-length "Psychostasia" of 1996

Lyrics :

In the dawn of time
the golden age of peace
in Valhalla
will it ever come to an end?

The blows of destiny
brought down on their heads
tortured Gullveig
the cause of the first wars

now murdered
the beginning of the ordeal
the Twilight of the Gods

Era of warfare - hatred
valkyries range in battles
evil dreams - psychic torture
trouble the sleep of the Aesir

Before the body of Balder
the Aesir swear an oath
to avenge bitterly
the war broke out all over the Earth

Brother slay brother
eager to destroy each other
the world is going to sink
into the abyss of nothingness

All the great gods died in the field
the Earth sank beneath the sea
as it emerged from the waves
the dawn of a new generation was beginning...
