Ade are a band from Italy that plays a very heavy, brutal and modern form of technical d eath metal with elements of Roman folk music and this is a review of their 2013 album "Spartacus" which was released by Blast Head Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into t he music at times, while the folk instruments bring elements of ancient Greek and Roman music to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death metal riffs that are very heavy, brutal, modern and technical sounding with some melody being thrown into the music at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic and technical sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls, high pitched screams and some clean singing male and female vocals as well as a brief use of spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover Greek and Roman Mythology, as for t he production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Ade are a very great sounding modern hybrid of technical death metal and Roman folk music and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Betrayer From Thrace" "Crixius Flags Of Dishonor" "Decimate the Coward" and "For Everything Be The Same". RECOMMENDED BUY.
