Adramelch  


Adramelch formed in 1987, and after only a year of existence recorded their debut album, the progressive-tinged Irae Melanox. Vocalist Vittorio Ballerio has a rather shrill voice when he goes for the high notes (typical of 80's metal vocalists) and the production on the album is a bit thin, but those are probably the only downsides to this album. The songs had bite, with traces of thrash complementing their adventurous 80's metal sound. Though slightly dated now, it can be argued that Irae Melanox was a bit ahead of its time, and is regarded by some as a minor classic in the field. Though it received good reviews at the time, the public response was less than hoped for, and for this and other reasons, the band went quiet, the members scattering to various projects. A modified lineup emerged in 2003, and two years later, the band's second album, Broken History, was released.
