Originally self-released on CD earlier this spring, ZEALOT CULT's Karmenian Crypt is a both a blast from the past and a detonation of the present. Resolutely committed to the core tenets of pure and total DEATH METAL, this Irish quartet take strong, expertly integrated influences from classic Floridian death metal and especially the early Roadrunner/RC catalog which fostered same. And yet, ZEALOT CULT manage to make epic, multi-dimensional majesty from that firm foundation, their compositions constantly rising and falling and taking dark 'n' doomed directions, all while remaining immediately memorable. So, while various strains of Pestilence, Death, Morbid Angel, and especially Obituary can be heard loud 'n' clear across Karmenian Crypt, its three songs build upon said foundation and contribute to this rich legacy, with yet more majesty to come in the near future with the band's imminent debut album for BLOOD HARVEST. No better time, then, to get in line and join ZEALOT CULT!
