CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Dark Underground Music Zine

The Crawling are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "In Light Of Dark Days" which was released by Grindscene Records.
Clean guitar playing starts off the ep before going into a very heavy and melodic musical direction and you can also hear all of the instruments that are present on the recording and when vocals are added into the music they are done in a death metal growling style while you can also hear high pitched screams at times.

Elements of black metal; can be heard in some of the vocals and riffs and the slower sections of the music are very heavily influenced by early 90's doom/death metal and there is a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts throughout the recording and the songs also stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and 2/3rd's of the tracks are very long and epic in length.

The Crawling plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the early 90's style of doom and death metal but also add in a touch of black metal to make their songs stand out a bit more, the production sound s very dark yet powerful at the same time while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion The Crawling are a very great sounding mixture of doom and death metal with a touch of black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Right To Crawl". 8/10 


  1. Is it accurate to say that you are not kidding about finding a decent music school and instructor? The vast majority just ask two inquiries which are truly absolutely immaterial to your best advantages with regards to getting a decent training. This article will really spare you cash and years of disappointment by giving you the RIGHT QUESTIONS to ask when you search around. Very, musically

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…
