Today, we delve into the captivating world of Zeolite, a promising death metal band hailing from Melbourne, Australia. In this review, we explore their monstrous song, "Weeping Veins," delving into its character, style, story, and potential.

Zeolite is a band that came to my attention a couple of months ago with their latest single, "Weeping Veins," released in 2019. This song stands out as one of the best-sounding and most impressive death metal tracks I have had the pleasure of experiencing lately. From the very first seconds of the intro, it captivated me instantly. I urge you to watch their music video before delving into the rest of this article.

As I have mentioned in previous articles, countless bands exist today producing similar music with identical approaches. However, Zeolite defies the norm and sets themselves apart in the best possible way. These Australian gentlemen showcase their uniqueness not only through their song structures but also through their innovative ideas, intelligent songwriting, and instrumental prowess. It feels as if they were well aware of what I yearn for in a song long before they entered the recording studio.

The composition of "Weeping Veins" is anything but standard. Upon closer inspection, one can appreciate the wealth of incredible ideas, passages, riffage, and seamless connections. While instrumental partitions are a common element in songs, Zeolite has skillfully woven vocal lines to create a unique and truly exceptional experience. The song's progression showcases their remarkable decision-making abilities. The track opens with a ferocious onslaught of guitars, immediately injecting electricity into the listener's veins. As the story unfolds, I found myself bracing for a potential metalcore or deathcore breakdown, but to my relief, Zeolite masterfully avoids such pitfalls, preserving the flawless execution of the song.

From a technical standpoint, "Weeping Veins" boasts exceptional sound quality and production. Personally, I perceive nothing but pure metal throughout the track. However, one of my drummer friends disagreed, noting the presence of additional electronic effects or elements. This aspect is subjective, and I leave it to the listener to make their own judgment.

The attack and dynamics of the overall sound in "Weeping Veins" are undeniably captivating, encapsulating the very essence of hell. No other description could be more fitting. Furthermore, every element sounds crystal clear, powerful, well-recorded, engineered, mixed, mastered, and, most importantly, harmonious. I extend my congratulations to the band, their studio manager, the producer, producer's assistant, band tech, guitar tech, engineer, coffee maker, food delivery person, and every individual involved in the creation of this magnificent piece of work.

In conclusion, Zeolite has left an indelible impression on me. Their experience and clarity of vision are evident in their music and career trajectory. "Weeping Veins" stands among the most promising death metal tracks I have encountered in recent times. Their attention to detail and meticulous execution warrant a perfect score of 10/10. Every aspect of the composition, instrumental partitions, connections, energy flow, balance, and overall vibe has been handled professionally, resulting in a masterpiece.
