Lil' Korn: Adema Begin Work On Debut Album

Rock group fronted by Jonathan Davis' half-brother expected to have LP in stores by late summer.

Hard-rockers Adema, fronted by the younger half-brother of Korn's Jonathan Davis, are in a Los Angeles studio working on their debut album.

The Bakersfield, California, quintet's LP is expected to be out by late summer, the band's Arista Records spokesperson said. The group — singer Marky Chavez, drummer Kris Kohls, bassist Dave DeRoo, and guitarists Mike Ranson and Tim Fluckey — entered the studio last week with first-time producer Toby Miller and co-producer Bill Appleberry.

Before Adema formed in mid-1999, Kohls beat the skins for the now-defunct Videodrone, whose self-titled debut album featured guest appearances by Davis, Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst. The disc was released in early 1999 on Korn's Elementree imprint.

Adema are working on lining up guests for their album, according to the Arista spokesperson (obvious fingers point to Davis), however no collaborators were confirmed at press time.
