New vocalist  31.10.2011

Michael Henneken is the new lead vocalist for Adamantra. Gifted with a personal voice paired with a powerful range, he's got that rare capability for both painting melodic landscapes, and rocking hard - he is the perfect fit for Adamantra.

Michael, being the former singer of the Finnish prog metal aristocrats Silent Voices, and currently performing frontman duties also for the band Sentiment, is no stranger to the job. Powered by his experience and talent, Adamantra is again moving full speed ahead!

"I am very happy for getting the chance to join such a brilliant band as Adamantra. The guys are really talented and that gives me a great opportunity to push my self musically forward as well. I will give my 110% for making the next album an amazing piece of work on my part and I'm looking forward doing live shows with the new material."

Adamantra and Tuomas Nieminen part ways - search for a new singer is on! 04.09.2011

An era has come to its end, as lead vocalist Tuomas Nieminen discontinues his duties in Adamantra.

Band leader, bass guitarist Jukka Hoffrén sums it up:

"Although feeling a bit blue now, we intend to look forward. This decision has not been easy, but we feel it to be the right one nonetheless. Since day one, Tuomas has trodden a long road with us - now our paths separate for a fresh start. Tuomas is up there with the very best of Finland's heavy metal vocalists, and we wish him nothing but the best in life and his musical journey. We are now hoping to swiftly discover a new vocalist, in order to wrap up the upcoming album."

Right now, it is time to turn a new page of Adamantra history with a new lead vocalist. That position is now open - everyone who feels himself worthy to fill Tuomas' formidable boots can apply. Three tracks from the upcoming Adamantra album can be heard at Mikseri. Sample audition material can be sent to

Adamantra debut album 'Revival' was released in 2009, receiving considerable acclaim from the prog metal audience and critics alike. Led by producer Mikko P. Mustonen at Pathos Music Studio, the band is currently working on its next full-length release.


3 new songs online!! New keyboard player on board! 31.03.2011

Press release:

The rising prog-metal act, Adamantra has published three new songs from their upcoming second album on their website and myspace.

“Revival” was the name of the debut album in 2009 and gave the first impression of the war cry to be unleashed on to the inhabitants of the melodic prog-metal universe. Adamantra is now continuing to lead the way as a new generation phenomenon with these three master pieces.

Unfortunately last summer, the band and their label (Sound Of Finland) decided to separate their ways in a mutual decision just before entering the studio. Even without the support of a record company the band considered the new material to be strong and passionate enough that it should be completed.

Adamantra continued to record the full album at D-Studio and the three-piece CD gives a preview of the full album when the mixing is completed for the rest of the songs. The band is on the prowl for a master deal, recording deal or a licensing deal.

In the meantime, Adamantra has strengthened the camp by recruiting Christian Pulkkinen (Simulacrum) as a full member keyboardist. Christian’s playing can be heard on these new songs.

"The year 2011 shall be in many ways a corner stone of my musical career. First of all, my own band Simulacrum is releasing it's debut album at the end of the year and secondly I got asked to join Adamantra as a permanent member. During the shows last summer I understood what a privilege it is to get to play with the musicians in the band. All of the members have excellent technique but also artistic vision and the ability to create great music. You have my word that I will challenge my self to play faster and stronger without forgetting good taste and artistic interpretation."

- Christian

Christian has already played seven concerts last summer as a live member, but after the new powerful material completed, Adamantra is dying to get on stage again!

An Update 07.02.2011

Vocal and keyboard parts are being wrapped up currently, and mixing work is about to commence soon.
