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

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: 'Anatomy Of Loss' - Ram zine

There’s some great titles on this album and one is ‘An Immaculate Deception’ that possesses some tough and twisting rhythms with a deep dark grunting vocal that you can feel in your gut as it rips your intestines out!
Moving on to the next track ‘Poison Orange’ I can almost hear the band laughing when they thought up this track title, but also can feel the harshness brooding as it plays out and leaks its venomous liquid through its vicious assault, and this is without being played fast.

‘Acid on my Skin’ speaks volumes from its title and will have you believe that it is toxic and caustic and of course you would be right to believe as its abrasive mark is made with a very potent vocal and large slices of darkened rhythms.

‘All Our Failings’ is a very imposing track that holds a lot of insatiable bait. It begins fast and then slows down to reveal that it can’t make up its mind if it wants to move faster or slower so you just have to go along with the flow, however, the track contains real…
