Zealot Cult are a band from Ireland that plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Karemenian Crypt" which was released by Blood Harvest
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats when t he music speeds up and death metal growls a few seconds later and the music is very heavily rooted in the mid 80's to early 90's era of the genre and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
At times a small amount of melody can be heard on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they stick to an old school style of death metal while also having there melodic moments and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 20 years ago. and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical direction and there is also a brief use of clean singing on the last track along with some technical elements while also being very long and epic in length.
Zealot Cult plays a style of death metal that is very traditional and rooted in the early 90's era of the genre, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Zealot Cult are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Eternal Winter". 8 out of 10.
