CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - XXL Rock

Brevity is the spice, the Ulsterman of "The Crawling" must have thought and present us on their new EP (beginning of the year there was already a 1-track CD) three fresh songs, which on a stately playing time of almost bring twenty minutes.

Far too little, far too short - because the presented material has become truly fantastic. The trio plays the delightfully doomy Death Metal how well hinbekommt him only when the Anglo-Saxons, reminds me, for example, at the very early Anathema, Paradise Lost, or even to "Lost Paradise" times. Very deep growls to meet melodious Death \ Doom which, although here and there has a few speed bursts, but is happening in slow area for the most part. The atmosphere is dark / melancholic to despair, as a music you just have to bring it to market in the fall / winter - perfect timing!

A thoroughly enjoyable debut, "The Crawling" I definitely will keep an eye (and in the ear!), Because here awaits us in the future certainly still a lot of nice! By the way, the song on the aforementioned CD is also very well done, you can download on the Bandcamp page of the band for £ 1.

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…
