The third Adema album 'Planets' marks a new beginning for the band, since the line-up features the debut of new singer Luke Caraccioli (replacing Marky Chavez). In addition, 'Planets' is Adema's first album to be released through Earache Records. No matter what the band is still vigorous, and 'Planets' proves that Adema is here to stay.

Adema's brand of modern rock has changed a bit, and nowadays it's full of life with catchy vocal lines, dynamic song structures and other pleasant surprises. The new vocalist, Luke Caraccioli, definitely changed Adema's sound a bit but it's all for the better. The music is now more melodic than before, although the "old" Adema elements are present as well.

Producing Planets was the first time for the band to have the opportunity to have full control over the album. They got to produce the album themselves and they also had freedom of choice concerning all the creative aspects. The sounds on 'Planets' are rather nipping and atmospheric. However, there's some background distortion audible few times.

Planets is definitely Adema's best album to date, as it contains some diversity that makes it more appealing to listen in the long run. The album also has a nice balance between the heavier and softer sides of rock. Nonetheless, there's still room for improvement as the quality of material varies and all of the songs don't succeed in keeping the listener intrigued.

Release date: April 11th, 2005

There's a sample of "Barricades in Time" on the official Adema website for you to listen.
