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

They are from Northern Ireland like Gama Bomb but to thrash prefer a slow death obsessive who does not bode well. The title of this is rather prophetic because of the lights and bright The Crawling do not seem to want to hear about. Three tracks, which follow the single 'Choking On Concrete', are not sufficient to be able to express an opinion but the full impact with saturated riff of hatred, dirty basslines and the guttural voice is definitely good. 

'The Right To Crawl' is the piece more atmospheric or at least the one that sets the standards of release and 'End Of The Rope' to more direct and lethal. It is up to eight minutes of 'Catatonic' close an ep that could attract the attention of some record label's first band. 

Experience with other bands like Honey For Christ and Zombified allowed members to leave ahead of much of the competition but to establish itself in this kind is not enough to cite Entombed, Bolt Thrower and My Dying Bride. And the trio serves more aware. So we will see what will be combined in the future.

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

THE CRAWLING is a three-piece Slow Death/Doom Metal band, originating in the United Kingdom, but now located in Northern Ireland. Formed in 2014, this is the band’s debut EP release, which contains three tracks. The six-minute “The Right to Crawl” opens the EP. True to the genre description, it is a slow moving song with a doomy feeling. The vocal style varies in range from low to high, but much of it is in the upper register and I can’t help but hearing some Black Metal influence to this song as well, especially when the song picks up pace, presumably during the chorus section. The song has substantial weight as well, as if it was slowly crushing the breath out of you.

“End of the Rope” is the second track. This four-minute song has a pensive and suspenseful opening, until the main distorted guitar kicks in the door with the force of a giant from the mountains beyond. Lumbering vocals and sunken guitar notes underscore the bottomless and hopeless feeling of the song, and this is clear…
