From a country with an existing and strong metal identity the young innovators - the band's mode age is still only 23 – Adept have taken Swedish fans and metal itself into the future. Since the early days, the sound has tightened as their pool of influence has broadened incorporating and weaving in elements of modern US hardcore, new British metal, post-hardcore and Sweden's own metal-scene
While many bands are delivering formulaic post-metalcore with heavy verses and pop choruses, Adept have a clear vision of that while at the cutting-edge, is unsullied by ephemeral trends.
And it's working. Europe has already woken up to the band: mainstage performances at Sonisphere and Metaltown in Sweden, as well as performances Pukkelpop, Graspop, Summer Breeze, Nova Rock, Vainstream and many more in Belgium, Germany, Holland etc all proving the band deserve big stages. Further travel has taken the band as far a field as Russia, and all over Europe supporting the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Architects, Raised Fist, Caliban and Underoath. In December 2011 the band is embarking on their first headline tour on the new Death Dealers album, The Lost Boys Tour together with More Than A Thousand and Walking With Strangers
Most heavy metal cloaks itself in darkness, albeit panto-esque and corny. But Adept have combine worldly observation, insightful cynicism with overriding philanthropy and positivity: not only is the music driving and energetic but the sentiments carried within reflect the bands upbeat demeanours.
"On 'Another Year of Disaster' band wrote about things they experienced themselves, but on the new album 'Death Dealers' is more more about observations: watching other people live their lives - without being judgemental - and giving an opinion."
So as the band continue to take their heavy and brutal party-core metal to the masses, they're determined to never lose sight of why the band exists and what the band stands for
