The band recorded the 1992 'Grip Of Darkness' demo, featuring new bassist Mikko Aarnio, that led to a deal with the French Adipocere label.
Following the release of the 7" vinyl 'Spring Of Recovery' single in December 1992 and a show with Demilich, Beherit and Crypt of Kerberos in 1993, Seppo Taatila, previously with Demigod, joined and contributed to the recording of 'The Fall' sessions, released in June 1995. The band then featured on a compilation released by the Spanish label Repulse with the track 'Heroes In Godly Blaze'.
The liaison with the Spaniards led to a two album deal with Repulse, the first fruits of which was the commercial release on CD of 'The Fall' tape.
The 'Psychotasia' album arrived in June 1996. ADRAMELECH were to lose bassist Aarnio after the 'Psychotasia' album and also added the ex-vocalist of Demigod towards the end of 1996. For the May 1998 mini-album 'Seven', a five track affair featuring two new studio tracks, a brace of live cuts and a re-recording of 'Ancestral Souls' re-titled 'Captured In Eternal Lost', the band comprised Rantanen, bassist Phillipe La Grassa and drummer Seppo Taatila. 'Pure Black Doom' ensued during April 1999.
ADRAMELECH were still undergoing line-up ructions in 2001 when in September guitar player Ali Leiniö departed. An album, entitled 'Terror Of Thousand Faces', was recorded but process proved arduous as their singer quit before completion of the tracks. The album finally emerged in June 2005 through Xtreem Music. EMISSARY's Marko Silvennoinen took over on lead vocals. Mikko Aarnio was to be replaced on bass by Tommi Rantanen, a scene veteran of Uncreation's Dawn, Forever Winter,Impious Havoc, NIGHTSIDE and Vordven.
