Shows complete; debut album underway

It's been a busy year for The Crawling; ironically a lot busier than we intended! It's been a fantastic experience - Inferno Festival Norway, Bloodstock Festival UK, a plethora of Irish shows and finishing off the year with Siege Of Limerick Ireland. It has been a blast, and thanks to everyone that has come to support us over the last 12 months; not only fans, but also the radio stations, magazines, promoters, webzines, journalists, and sound engineers that have worked with us, and helped us do what we love to do.

Behind the scenes, bedsides constant rehearsals, we have been working hard on our debut album. Tracking is well underway and sounding very well. The touring schedule has slowed us a bit, but we are focusing on getting the album completed by the end of the year, for release early 2017.

There will still be plenty of updates here, and on all our social media pages. Those that follow us know we always have something going on!

Stay miserable people and stay in touch.

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…
