“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!” comments Paul Shaw, owner of Blast Head Records.
