Matthew Rukgaber The drummer for this is hyper fast technical death metal. Greco-Roman rather than Egyptian. I like this more than Nile, because I do not dig ultra-low vocals. Super technical, but produced well enough that it is clear and comprehensible. Favorite track: The Endless Runaway.

Andrej Romić You just can't unlike stuff that features Kollias. Such a great record and features the dude on the full album. Interesting folk- inspired technical death metal from Italy. Favorite track: Betrayer From Thrace.

True masters of music, ADE, formed in 2007, with the purpose of blending death metal with the traditional instruments of ancient Rome and Greece. They released their debut album ‘Prooemivm Sangvine’ in 2009 and are now set on unleashing their incredible follow up album on April 16th 2013 through Canadian label Blast Head Records!

‘Spartacus’ is a ten track album with amazing song structures, musicianship, and features extreme metal drummer George Kollias! From start to finish ‘Spartacus’ grips you with musical hooks and the use of traditional Roman instruments allows you to hear something new with every listen. Powerful, memorable and a major contender for album of the year! This is Ancient Roman Death Metal and is highly recommended for fans of Behemoth, Hour of Penance & Fleshgod Apocalypse!
