Bloodstock 2016 is officially over!



There are loads of people that we would like to thank, and apologise in advance for anyone we may have forgotten; but there were so many that made this whole thing happen.

Thanks to; James Loveday from The Distortion Project for hosting the MTM event, the Belfast metal community for voting for us throughout the heats, all the bands we played alongside to get to Bloodstock, and of course Simon Hall for choosing us to play the New Blood Stage.


We would like to sincerely thank all the Bloodstock staff and organisers who looked after us on the day, particularly "Ammo" for keeping us right, our techs on the day, the sound engineers, and anyone else involved in the running of the New Blood Stage.

We really appreciate all the radio stations, magazines, webzines, you tubers, photographers, that took time to chat with us; it was a lot of fun! Thanks to Andy Pennington for arranging!!!

It was also fantastic to see so many Irish bands leave their mark at Bloodstock - hails to Zlatanera, Rabid Bitch Of The North, Psykosis Thrash Metal, Ten Ton Slug and Two Tales of Woe - a credit to Irish metal!

Finally, a HUGE thank you to everyone that came to see us play, banged their head, crowd surfed, and bought some merch - you rock; and without you none of it would have been worthwhile.


Stay miserable...

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…
