Formed in 1996, the band Adamantium drew its name from the indestructible metal that lined the skeleton of Marvel Comics' X-man, Wolverine (AKA Logan). The band landed on Indecision Records (Count Me Out, Throwdown), after label-owner Dave Mandel attended a live show in late-1997, and received a copy of the band's first 7". Adamantium's first full-length, "From the Depths of Depression," would display its ability to combine metal-tinged hardcore with groove-oriented rhythms and emotion. The band would begin to grow in popularity, as it toured with bands such as Death by Stereo, Converge, and The Hope Conspiracy. Adamantium's follow-up album, "When It Rains, It Pours," would show the band's growth musically, as well as establishing the unit as one of hardcore's promising young acts. Unfortunately, the band would call it quits in 2001, leaving fans with a split 7" with Bane as its final recording legacy. Fans of new-school metalcore or music that grooves (a grittier Snapcase perhaps) may want to check out Adamantium. hide
