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

From Northern Ireland, Lisburn, the EP advancement of this band that make doom death metal or as they are called Slow Death Metal, comes THE CRAWLING . Newly formed in 2014, we are approaching this world of misery and contempt around us along three songs that form their EP "In Light Of Dark Days", recreating a dark and aggressive atmosphere, with very heavy guitars and a guttural deep and torn by Andy Clarke a suicio and forceful low by Stuart Rainey also makes his vocal escapades and accompanying pecusiĆ³n hand perfectly Gary Beattie.

It is a dark disk, where happiness is left parked across the sidewalk is impossible to achieve and which have been published by GrindScene Records and a very good artwork design and charcoal where a female figure is diluted in the dark .

"The Right To Crawl" begins show journey into darkness, slowly, with hints doom and guitars reminiscent of MY DYING BRIDE, while the guttural voice appears to accelerate the pace and enter a dark debacle, with duality of voices ranging from acute and guttural. It is an endless mountain that rises and falls constantly pace, but like a marshland it were grabs you and hypnotizes you with the melodies of guitars.

"End Of The Rope". Has a mysterious beginning and acoustic, where the heaviest records in both vocal and guitar riffs make their presence, a march towards the abyss without pause, alternating acoustic beautiful passages with dense and heavy riffs distorted. A short but intense theme with a more open closure, with hints of black post.

"Catatonic" is the last track of this EP and the longest in turn is one of the ones I like, though with only three subjects and three good is difficult to keep some, but chose this for its composition musical, more spun from a sedate start, introducing us to the sound of a storm and rain that interweaves with the original bass and rhythmic percussion, while the guitars and voices through the curtain of water appear. A theme doom or slow death, dense, heavy and melodic, which develops and accelerates at intervals showing a malignant aggressiveness with bass and treble guttural cries, (this part is amazing, the counterpoint to get with alternating rhythms) to return back to their heavy travel through the mud. In its final part, it changes structurally and with a strong rhythm guitar adds a touch of class to the theme tune, varying it in terms of voices and guitars to return to home and put the finishing touch.

THE CRAWLING with this EP, leaves a good taste waiting for his long life, he knows a little three very good songs which especially emphasizes "Catatonic" and secondly "End Of The Rope". An EP that will listen dozens of times in the remaining days of winter.

8/10

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…
