CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Phantasmagoria

The upcoming The Crawling formed in early 2014 in Northern Ireland, but despite his young age as a band does not lack experience, as Stuart Rainey on bass and vocals, Andy Clarke on guitar and vocals and Gary Beattie on drums that make up the They have stable and long course in the local underground scene.

This potential heavy trio to be released late next month maiden release under the title In Light Of Dark Days, which will take the form EP, since it contains only three pieces of a total duration of about 20 minutes, while special mention It deserves careful of artwork, which bears witness to the grim and gloom of existence.

The slow-moving music of The Crawling supported by a heavy and rough death metal pattern, but which have successfully dress with bold doom / death elements and faintly funeral doom soundscapes, thereby enhancing the sonic range of In Light Of Dark Days, the flawless flow which, owes much to the frequent and successful changes tempo, attempting the band.

The barrage at times drums enrich the unholy their groove the final set and create a robust and compact rythm section with pithy bass of The Crawling, which gives depth to the sound of In Light Of Dark Days by volume, while the puddle brutal vocals reveal the intense death metal background Tutu of talented band.

The dull and morbid sound of In Light Of Dark Days owes its sharp the substance to the untamed guitar, which sometimes knock off argosyrta riffs in Skye doom pattern and sometimes knit sharp melodies with black aroma, but the pieces of The Crawling tantalise its leads, that smell doom / death and funeral doom rottenness audio bygone eras.

In short, the slow-moving death metal highly promising The Crawling has successfully grafted with generous amounts of doom / death magic, which reveal great, both almost imperceptibly Their black nuggets, and the faint funeral the touches that make the In Light Of Dark Days highly enjoyable, too small parcel. Excellent.

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…

CD review: 'Anatomy Of Loss' - Demonszone

ANATOMY OF LOSS is the debut album from the semi-sober Irish death metal band THE CRAWLING. A promising band with an even more promising album.

After the release of their three track EP IN LIGHT OF DARK DAYS, I have been looking forward to hearing this record. In terms of style and sound, this album is very much more of the same. There is a vast selection of death metal riffing, each one being as catchy as the other thanks to having more emphasis on the rhythm rather then following the idiotic trend of how fast and extreme they could play.

When the group aren’t thrashing out on their instruments, they are playing slow heavy chords that is best described as doom metal. These songs start off slow (a little too slow for my personal taste) and had they been a little longer, they would have been a little tedious. But THE CRAWLING seem to have enough common sense to realise that each song requires a good hook and just when things slow down, they burst into life with some mean riff. Both styl…
