CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Hateful Metal

That it does not take much to convince me to prove The Crawling from Northern Ireland with elegant ease. "In The Light Of Dark Days" is the new EP, which was founded in 2014 tape. Is touted as the whole, Slow Death ', which you can let it go, and I use the term Death Doom appropriate since established, find.

The Crawling do absolutely nothing new. The three compositions provide clean produced and powerful Death Doom represents the melancholic melodies with a haunting, throaty and deep vocals combined. I've often heard so beautiful, yet succeeded in Northern Ireland immediately to convince me of it.

As I mentioned in the first sentence, it took for not much. After all, what has THE CRAWLING immortalized on the Silberling substance, is from beginning to end simply convincing. First, there are the very good melodies. On the one hand to play the guitar is very clear, however - or perhaps because of it - very concisely and effectively. The doomy not rampant and despite the prevailing slow and latent melancholy THE CRAWLING continue to set hard and gripping accents. In addition to the bass-rich and powerful sound, this is also due to the excellent vocals.The voice is throaty, earthy and very deep, but also very comprehensible. The song conveys both harshness and severity, as well as dedicated melancholy. With sorrow and sadness do not overdo THE CRAWLING incidentally. Although the compositions have a melodic and atmospheric component, but it is neither too thickly nor THE CRAWLING lost in bombastic elegy.


I like "In Light Of Dark Days" very good and the EP makes you want more. For me, this part is in the range of Death Dooms a highlight of the year.

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…
