Slave Zero

Slave Zero is an up-and-coming band from Ireland, whose 2002 self-released debut album The Defiant Stand musically is rooted in thrash and traditional metal, with death-ish vocals. Overall this is one of those bands whose style is instantly familiar yet not reminiscient of any one band, though some point to Death since there's a cover of "Zombie Ritual", even if Slave Zero is far less rooted in old-school death metal than Death was. While there's nothing really complex or revolutionary here, this is a fine album, particularly well put together considering it's a self-financed effort from a young band. The membership has changed over the years but the band has remained active and records every few years, most recently in 2013.
