CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Quien mueve los hilos?

The Crawling is an Irish band that formed in 2014 and this year have released a single and now this Ep. Theirs is a Death Doom, quite technical and sound quite close now to 90, with atmospheric passages and themes that explore the vein more progressive direction, ie, experimental ,.

The EP starts with The Right to Crawl with one Death acceleration in the old way and which environmental hammer very repetitive and insistent riff pylon a good theme with two distinct faces.

End of the Rope starts more quietly, one steeped in a darkness rhythm, acoustic and then continued with a tremolo Thunderstorms in marking the rock theme. A riff that repeats, either acoustic or electric, achieving a very successful atmosphere and make very entertaining topic, not missing a little groove here and there to give consistency and force the issue.

The last issue that we leave these Irish is Catatonic eight minutes which penetrate the darkness thicken the sound and take us in a much darker acoustic tour. Very good development of low creating this environment, you can say that the band moves in sound Sludge at times. And of course, they could not miss the appointment the machacones and repetitive riffs, of those who do that mechanically move the neck. Slow times and surely succeed in creating a world of murky feelings of unease and a very gimmicky theme.

A very good letter of these Crawling, have all the earmarks of being a group called to let us very good records in the future and maybe even to become erect as a future reference for the genre.

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…
