LIVE review: The Voodoo, Belfast - Cult of Necro

Cheers to 'Cult Of Necro' for this cool review from our debut show:

Opening things up we have a band that need to instantly be at the top of your "to watch" list, Lisburn's THE CRAWLING. And holy shit, what a debut show. A sound often not unlikeCARCASS, yet tinged with blackness and doom, in genre and in meaning. "End Of The Noose", "Catatonic" and "Breathe Through Concrete" are all songs we want on record right fucking now. This is one hell of a tight performance, and a band that demonstrate why you should get your ass down to a gig early and support the local scene.

CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Metal Temple

THE CRAWLING is a three-piece Slow Death/Doom Metal band, originating in the United Kingdom, but now located in Northern Ireland. Formed in 2014, this is the band’s debut EP release, which contains three tracks. The six-minute “The Right to Crawl” opens the EP. True to the genre description, it is a slow moving song with a doomy feeling. The vocal style varies in range from low to high, but much of it is in the upper register and I can’t help but hearing some Black Metal influence to this song as well, especially when the song picks up pace, presumably during the chorus section. The song has substantial weight as well, as if it was slowly crushing the breath out of you.

“End of the Rope” is the second track. This four-minute song has a pensive and suspenseful opening, until the main distorted guitar kicks in the door with the force of a giant from the mountains beyond. Lumbering vocals and sunken guitar notes underscore the bottomless and hopeless feeling of the song, and this is clear…
