What is A.D.E.?
A.D.E. is an abbreviation for Angelic Destroyer Entertainment. In the summer of 2000, I set out to create a label with a strong message behind it. I remembered the passages of The Bible, specifically dealing with the fall of Sodom and Gomorrah. Basically, the people of those cities were so evil that GOD sent 2 angels to destroy them. Although they were angels, their mission was to destroy, hence Angelic Destroyer. Plus, they had the power of GOD behind them and, to me, that was a pretty powerful thing! (link).
I wanted A.D.E. to be not only a record label, but a full circle entertainment company. I have always dreamed of expansion and wished to cover all grounds of entertainment whether it be music, film, writing, animation, etc.. As of the summer of 2008, A.D.E. has also become a digital distribution company with the ability to make product available in over 10 digital retail stores including itunes, amazonmp3, emusic, napster, rhapsody, zune, and more! A.D.E.'s current roster of artists include Makell Bird, Natika, DJ Taz, and Nitemare.
Side note: The funniest question I've heard asked about A.D.E. is, "Isn't that demonic?". To those who think the word Angelic Destroyer is demonic: My only advice to you is to re-take English class! If you passed English, you'd know that in the term Angelic Destroyer, Angelic is a descriptive word. It describes the nature of the Destroyer. Hence, the Destroyer is Angelic! You ignant fux have it backwards! In fact, Angelic Destroyer is the total opposite of demonic. Now read a book for GOD's sake! www.makellbird.info
