CD review: 'In Light of Dark Days' - Extreminal Web'zine

The British band THE CRAWLING is a relatively young band. Founded in 2014 they released last year their 3-Track CD “In Light Of Dark Days. They received help here from Grindscene Records.
Finest Doom Metal resounds off my loudspeakers. 

Slowly constituting songs which generate sound ramparts which weigh tons. Therefor already ensure the halting riffs which are dark and extremely emotional. Supported by he powerful, pitch-black growls a depressiee atmosphere arises which offers no prospect of light. Sheer emotion! 

Nevertheless, “In Light Of Dark Days“ is no boring production. To the contrary: It is diversified and nevertheless hard to beat of gloom and impressiveness. Very dedicated and with much blood, sweat and tears recorded you should give a listen to “In Light Of Dark Days“ by all means. A very promising debut. I am curious what we will hear of THE CRAWLING 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…
