CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Possessed Magazine

The Irish scene is quasi compare Ostfriesland. A small country with many hot combos. Of course, the amount mixed with each other and so it is with "The Crawling". The musicians are otherwise still in "zombified" and "Honey for Christ" active we gambled with bands like "Overoth," Devil Make Three "and" Periodic Slaughter ". Quite young, the trio is no longer well. But the three there want to know, as well as here in East Frisia again. As the circle closes, but I think a lot of old warriors have again get Bock to make Metal. Just as an aside.

Since 2014, there is now this band and as I said, experience is present. In 2015 only thanks came a single, and now these 3 Song Ep. The label Grind Scene Records from Northern Ireland, I also know all its predecessors bands and "The Crawling" but sound then again quite different.
The label or the band describes their style as "Slow Death ". Okay, you can do so, but sounds a little breakdowns and Slam, but it is not definitive. Here ruled the old school and the boys mix Death Metal with Doom. With this type of Mucke it's become fashionable, that uses clean vocals. Luckily, the boys do without it and the grunting sounds so cool and bold, delicious. So I put it in front of me. So it was with my favorite Death / Doom disc called "the flower withers A" of My Dying Bride, and so it should always be. Out. Admittedly, I am now also become older and also more open because the new discs from Paradise Lost, My Dying like Amorphis and even me.Since these three songs are the right place. 

In the summer this disc you need not reinpfeiffen itself. Outside it must be gloomy and rainy and then you can go on a trip melancholisce 20 minutes. 

"The reight to crawl" goes right through. Doom / Death or Death / Doom just thrives on emotions and gloomy, melancholy presented riffs and this is equal to the opener of the case, a beautiful, eerie brought forward melody carries this Song.Langsam you crawl to himself, but will change the tempo without to be really fast. The bloodcurdling growls mates knee breaking nagging. Likewise, I love it. The "fast" midtempo part could still be fixed, but this is just my personal opinion. I Like This blatant counterplay. Regardless, even so the song pops without end. Fettes Ding. 

The shortest song "End of the rope" you can hear on Youtube. At the beginning of the song you have slight fears that the boys drift off into gothice, but misses wide. You can find the right track, after use of the guitar and the growls. Again nice slow again already melancholic. However, they build this time a groovy part, almost a breakdown with a. Cool idea, mainly because of the groove is also nice grim. 

I was and am never a fan of long songs have been. The bouncer "Catatonic" goes over eight minutes and that's not for me, mostly. The song slowly builds up, is also slow and contracts. The growls and screeching sound natural again outstanding and the main reef, which is again succeeded absolutely sad and ridiculous acts never is, but me too ausgenudelt. The song could have been shortened to 6 minutes. But this is really the only criticism that I can install. 

"The Crawling" need not behind bands like "My Dying Bride" Paradise Lost "," Mourning Beloveth "," Anathema "or" Amorphis "hide. On the contrary. Due to the konsenquente kind of song, say growls and screams, I find it even more intense. It will be really looking forward to the full length. If they can maintain the level, then waits for us a big thing!

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…
