Brevity is the spice, the Ulsterman of “The Crawling” must have thought and present us on their new EP (beginning of the year there was already a 1-track CD) three fresh songs, which on a stately playing time of almost bring twenty minutes.
Far too little, far too short – because the presented material has become truly fantastic. The trio plays the delightfully doomy Death Metal how well hinbekommt him only when the Anglo-Saxons, reminds me, for example, at the very early Anathema, Paradise Lost, or even to “Lost Paradise” times. Very deep growls to meet melodious Death \ Doom which, although here and there has a few speed bursts, but is happening in slow area for the most part. The atmosphere is dark / melancholic to despair, as a music you just have to bring it to market in the fall / winter – perfect timing!
A thoroughly enjoyable debut, “The Crawling” I definitely will keep an eye (and in the ear!), Because here awaits us in the future certainly still a lot of nice! By the way, the song on the aforementioned CD is also very well done, you can download on the Bandcamp page of the band for £ 1.
