Ade are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very brutal form of death metal with some folk elements and this is a review of their 2016 album "Carthago Delenda Est" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very dark and medieval sound starts off the album bringing in the atmosphere of an epic movie along with some folk music elements and after awhile the music starts going into a heavier musical direction and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals are death metal growls.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very yet melodic fashion and they also mix in the folk elements in with the heavier parts at times and some songs also bring in elements of modern metal and there is also a brief use of female vocals and high pitched screams can also be heard on some tracks and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
Ade creates another recording that remains true to the epic death metal style of previous recordings while also adding more folk elements this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Ancient Rome.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ade and if you are a fan of epic death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Across The Wolf's Blood" "Dark Days Of Rome" and "Sowing Salt". 8 out of 10.
