Zealot R.I.P. is an American metal supergroup featuring members of such genre titans as Pig Destroyer, Darkest Hour, CombatWoundedVeteran and Frodus, among others. Together, they channel a hardcore/metal hybrid by combining propulsive percussion and thunderous riffs. Their debut self-titled EP came out earlier this week, and it includes the swirling, intense-as-hell lead single “Magnetic Field of Dreams.”
Guttural vocal wails and stabby thrash metal chords ratchet up the ferocity, while a rhythm change midway through brings the track to a hypnotic, cathartic end. It’s two minutes of explosive metallic soundscapes, and one hell of a debut track for Zealot R.I.P. The band describes their own style as “Death-punk,” and the moniker certainly fits. The EP is out now via Three One G, and you can purchase it HERE. Listen to “Magnetic Field of Dreams” below via SoundCloud.
