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: '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…
