ADEMA Drummer: We Are Influenced By METALLICA And PANTERA - Aug. 11, 2003 Despite the fact that his group is regularly being called "nu-metal" by most of the music press, ADEMA drummer Kris Kohls wants to make it clear that, as far as he's concerned, the nu-metal genre itself is little more than a media invention.

"I don't even really know what [nu-metal] is," Kohls told Canada's Chart Attack. "To be honest, I don't even think it exists. There's nothing new about metal… I'm not sure who came up with that term or why it stuck so much.

"We're just a rock band," he continued. "We're influenced by metal, but the bands that influence us are METALLICA and PANTERA, and those bands aren't new. I just don't see it. Songs like 'Promises' and 'Fortunate' and stuff like that, to me, I don't see how you would call that metal. I think we're kind of growing out of that."

Kohls added that while the first album (ADEMA's self-titled debut, released in 2001) had more of a metal edge, he feels that the group's sophomore effort, "Unstable" (due on August 19 through Arista Records), is a much stronger release.

"We spent about eight months writing and recording ['Unstable'] — actually it was closer to a year for the whole thing. And now that it's done and it's about ready to come out, we're definitely very excited," Kohls said.

"It was a little different because the first one we recorded in a cabin in the mountains. We all lived together in the same cabin and we were pretty much inseparable for about two months writing that record," Kohls explained. "This one we wrote in Burbank, and we were all able to go home afterwards and… write separately as well as together. We weren't as confined, so it was a little different in that aspect."

ADEMA are heading out on the road with LINKIN PARK in a few weeks for a European tour that will take them through the fall.

Yeah, the term "nu metal" is an invention of the media, just like "hair metal", right?
They're the SAME THING, just a different decade. They both take some aspects of metal, but then mix it with current pop trends so it will sell. I've never heard Adema, but this jackoff sounds so defensive that I'll assume they just sound like Disturbed. Are you down with the syndrome?

I honestly thought it was N'Sync, these guys are about as metal as Johnny Cash is Gangsta Rap.
Easily the most watered form of nu-metal out there.
Please guys go away, you fuckin bug!

i don't think its fair to compare hair metal and nu metal. there is a difference. hair metal musicians were actually talented.

Damn, I spoke to soon, most hair metal bands could play their instruments. Sorry, hair metallers!
But I still stand by the part about mixing metal with current pop trends. Yessirree.

I never knew it was THAT hard to write/record a nu-metal album! They must be REALLY bad musicians.

"ADEMA are heading out on the road with LINKIN PARK in a few weeks for a European tour that will take them through the fall."

Is that not a contradiction to their claim of "not being numetal"? Hahahah, morons.

these guys sound like britney spears with guitars. how is that considered as an influence by pantera. im tired of bands that arent metal trying to cling to the term. nu-metal is the term for posers trying to act as though they are. nu metal is the cock rock of this decade just like winger and poison were back in the 80's. adema is pop rock at best. just a boy band that plays their own instruments.

Adema is still around? Who'd think a band that bad would still be around today? Oh wait;

Linkin Park, etc.

Hope their album bombs worse than Fred Durst at an all you can eat chilli stand.

It's certainly a media creation. Why? Because all these J/0's were saying how metal they were and no one would have it. On they had to invent a new category called Rap Rock, because whenever someone would review a song that had rap, the first comment they'd make is, "It's not metal, so why is it in the Metal category?"

I dont hear a fucking pantera influence??? Maybe that nu-metal shit metallica!

Ive never been a fan of any nu-metal bands ever since that shit began.

Adema its called NU-METAL because its fucking rap/metal/pop shit. Hell its not ever goddamn metal...metal is so overused these days...A true metal band is judas priest.

"metal is not new" what a dumb fuck.
NU METAL = tuned down guitars, no solos and either whining or rapping vocals or a combination of the such.
For the most part, it all sucks, only a few stand on their own.
7dust, Coal Chamber (ok i know they weren't well embraced, but i like(d) them).

that these bands like Adema want credibility, so they list Pantera and Metallica as influences. Well truth be told, there is a difference between influences and what you like. You may like Pantera and Metallica, you might even like Johnny Cash, but you're influences are NOT Metallica and Pantera. Not defending bands who actually have sort of that style, but a band like Disturbed (not that I am a fan) has more of a Metallica/Pantera influence ala the guitar crunch and double bass attack then Adema.

Be real already and cite Justin Timberlake and Linkin Park as your influences LOL

It was an extra on Mortal Kombat 5. They're influenced by early Korn, mid-current Korn and current Korn. The singer makes these painful goofy toilet trouble faces when he sings.

Question: if nu-metal is tuned down guitars, no solos, what is Chiemera?

I must be death because I don't hear one ounce of Pantera or Metallica in Adema's music. Adema = Korn jr. Don't get me wrong I like Korn but Adema is just another one in a million Korn-clones cluttering up the airwaves. Bring on the next fuckin trend cause this one is dead.
