Blast Head Records is proud to announce the signing of Ancient Roman death metal band ADE for the spring release of their sophomore album entitled Spartacus, featuring extreme metal drummer George Kollias for the follow up to their 2009 debut Prooemivm Sangvine.
True masters of music, ADE, formed in 2007, with the purpose of blending death metal with the traditional instruments of ancient Rome and Greece.
“When I first listened to Spartacus I was instantly intrigued by the amazing song structures, production and most importantly the musicianship of ADE! From start to finish Spartacus grips you with musical hooks and their use of traditional Roman instruments allows you hear something new with every listen. The album is very powerful, memorable and in all honesty is a major contender for album of the year! I am beyond proud to have ADE on Blast Head Records to showcase their talents to the world!” – Paul Shaw, owner of Blast Head Records.
