Zeolite – Weeping Veins Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising death metal band; Zeolite, from Australia. We have reviewed their monstrous song; Weeping Veins, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Zeolite is another promising modern death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two months ago with their latest single; Weeping Veins, which was released in 2019. Weeping Veins, is one of the very few, the best sounding, and also the most impressive death metal songs I have listened to lately (I am grateful). After listening to only a few seconds after the intro, it was just an instant approval by Metalhead Community Team. So please watch their music video before reading the rest of the article.
As you might also remember from my previous articles that there are tons of bands out there making the same kind of music with the exact same approach. And I am not able to stand even a second of it anymore. Zeolite, in my matter, is the perfect example that I keep telling them about. These Australian gentlemen are making the difference (a big one) with not only their structure in this song but also with their ideas, decisions, intelligent songwriting, instrumentals and so on. It seems to me like they already knew what I am talking about here before recording this song. Anyways.
The composition of Weeping Veins is nothing close to standard. When I take a closer look at it, I can see that there are so many incredible ideas, passages, riffage, and connections. We are all used to listening to songs with instrumental partitions, yet not everybody can perfectly connect everything with vocal lines just like Zeolite has done in this example. This is quite unique. On the other hand, you might have many incredible ideas. However, that doesn’t mean that they will create a Voltron, something much more meaningful and impressive altogether. Zeolite has done a remarkable job with all these decisions here. Hands down. The song begins with the wrath of guitars. It doesn’t make the listener until some point. It immediately channels the electric directly to their veins from the first second (after the very short intro). As the story continues, I was quite afraid to hear a stupid metalcore/deathcore breakdown, to be honest. But thank Odin, he heard me and didn’t allow such a flawless piece of work to ruin. And I am grateful for that.
Technically, Weeping Veins have an exceptional sound quality and production. Honestly, I hear nothing but pure metal here, but my drummer mate wasn’t agreeing with me. He thinks there is too much additional electronic effects/stuff on the production, then it should be. This topic is relative of course. I am leaving the decision to the listener here.
I personally loved the attack, the dynamics of the general sound from the first second until the end. This, my friends, is the atmosphere of HELL. There’s no better explanation for it. Also, everything sounds quite clear, powerful, very well recorded, engineered, mixed, mastered and most importantly in great harmony. I’d like to congratulate the band, their studio manager, the producer, producer’s assistant, band tech, guitar tech, engineer, coffee maker, food delivery guy, and every single soul who has taken part in the making of this magnificent piece of work!
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Zeolite. They are very experienced, and also aware of what they expect from what they do. I could tell this by only listening to their music, they acknowledged by looking at their careers. Like I said before, Weeping Veins is one of the very few the most promising death metal pieces I have listened to lately. They are showing great potential with their “ON POINT” job. The composition, instrumental partitions, connections, the energy flow, balance, the general vibe, almost every single detail you can imagine were handled, blended and taped very professionally. I’d rate them 10/10 for their taste in metal.
