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: '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…
