IX Zealot / Press

“IX ZEALOT "Articles of Ophidian Faith" reviewed in MRR! Maximum Rock'N Roll "Prior to this I think the only Salt Lake band I'd heard was XCLEARX, this band does not sound like them. These are three long songs of very brutal, heavy doom/black/death influenced metal. Some of the riffing and the drummer's style does bring to mind a few of the 90's metalcore bands on Life Sentence and Goodlife records, just slowed way down. I get the feeling these guys are probably in their 30s or late 20s and had a few of those records in their collection. What it really reminds me of is the slower MORBID ANGEL songs, just without the off the wall solos and shit. The vocals have a similar occult style too. I dig it, even though I have no clue what the fuck he's talking about." (Aaron)”
