Adept was founded in 2004 and consists of musicians Robert Ljung (vocals), Jerry Repo (guitar), Gustav Lithammer (guitars), Filip Brandelius (bass) and Gabriel Hellmark (drums). In their first year, they released their first demo, Hopeless Illusions, recorded and sold on their own. Their first EP, which was released a year later, was financed out of pocket. The second EP, The Rose Will Decay was released as a proper production. Because of the great success and the rapidly growing awareness of the band, Panic & Action became aware of the group and took them under contract.

Panic & Action and Success[edit]

On 4 February 2009, Adept released their first full-length album, Another Year of Disaster. In 2010, Adept toured in Germany with the band Her Bright Skies, which is also under contract with Panic & Action. The tour consisted of 6 The Toughest Kids concerts. The venues were Hamburg, Berlin, Osnabrück, Munich, Stuttgart and Cologne.[1] In August 2010, Adept began working on the successor of Another Year of Disaster. They worked with Fredrik Nordström, an experienced music producer who already worked with In Flames, Bring Me the Horizon and At the Gates.[2] On 11 March 2011, they released their second album titled Death Dealers. Changing their sound from their Post-Hardcore roots to Metalcore. They would then release a 3rd album in late 2013, Titled "Silence The World".

Adept played their first European tour which started in Sweden and lead through France, Russia, Finland, Norway, Finland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary and Italy. In May they played some shows in Germany while that EU tour together with As Blood Runs Black, Caliban and For Today.
