Review : Zealotry - The Last Witness by MetalItalia.com

Via MetalItalia.com (translated): "Americans Zealotry are a shining example of how, driven by ingenuity and the desire to look beyond usual patterns, it is still possible to stand out from the crowd, creating something truly eclectic and stimulating. A work free from constraints and chains, in which the severe and cathedratic approach of the Immolations of the golden age mixes with the oblique and spastic solutions of people such as Adramelech, Demilich, Gorguts and Timeghoul (masters in combining the instinct of certain extreme metal with the most surreal drifts of the progressive school),for an overall result full of ideas, ideas and visions placed halfway between the dreamy and the horrifying, between the morbid and the intangible.Placed on the market by the Czech Lavadome Productions, always synonymous with elegant and quality death metal, the disc is configured as an incessant whirlwind of disconnected guitar and rhythmic twists, pindaric flights and slime digressions, where conciseness and linearity is often preferred the accumulation, the construction of tortuous structures that need a lot of patience to be fully explored. A risky choice, but which in this case proves to be immediately successful and functional to the narration of the tracklist, an apocalyptic-sci-fi concept narrated with a wealth of details by a cavernous growling and mindful of the teachings of the young Ross Dolan.With tracks that stand at an average of six minutes (abundantly exceeded in the case of the "Progeny Omega" and "Silence" suites), "The Last ..." is an authentic flood of breaks and tempo changes, intertwined with each other by alien nature, hallucinated solos and spices of various kinds that make the experience even more unpredictable.This is the case of the clean choirs, the cello lines or the acoustic punctuation marks of the tracks mentioned above, a manifestation of a formation that will almost certainly not go beyond the usual underground circles, but which on tiptoe has already written one of the most beautiful death metal pages of this 2016.intertwined with alien riffs, hallucinated solos and spices of various kinds that make the experience even more unpredictable.
