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!!!!

‘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…
