Free Irish Death Metal?

Why not? Over the years I've heard of Irish bands here and there, but I never pictured there being much of a scene in Ireland for Death Metal. Zealot Cult prove me wrong with a well produced 5 song demo, available for free download (see link at bottom), that reflects a healthy love of evil leads with roots in the underground and zero aspirations for the mall. This is top notch modern Death Metal with a strong tendency towards Florida a la  Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal and Deicide. I would say Zealot Cult reflects these types of bands not only stylistically, but also in attention to songwriting, tightness and the professionalism of the finished product. Raging, dark and flashy without overdoing it,  Zealot Cult will make you proud to be Death Metal on St. Patricks day or any other day of the year.

And just in case you didn't know about Irish Death Metal, go to and they'll set you straight like they did me.
