Ade - Carthago Delenda Est

Italy’s Ade releases their third album. In a nutshell you could sum Ade up by saying they are a more palatable version of Nile (George Kollias drumming on their previous album doesn’t hurt either) but swapping the Egyptian theme for Ancient Rome. This however isn’t to write the band off because "Carthago Delenda Est" is a strong album that holds its own.

Interloping epic cinematic soundscapes with technical death metal played with a precision of a laser. 'Annibalem' ties everything going on with the album up nicely the riffs the big scope of song arrangements and the melodies tying everything together. 'With Tooth And Nail' opens with an awesome groove and is the band at their most catchy.

If Nile, Septicflesh  Decapitated and Demigod era Behemoth are your thing then be sure to check this band out. Ade are one of metal’s rising stars and this is 50 minutes full of entertaining, fun, well rounded, forward thinking death metal with crossover appeal.
