The Crawling promo 02.jpg

Formed in the winter of 2014 against the bleak concrete backdrop of Lisburn city, Northern Ireland, The Crawling use a guttural vocal to combine melancholy with weight, churning out a heavy, doom/death ensemble.

January 2015 saw the debut single ‘Choking On Concrete,’ which put the band on the scene, followed in October 2015 by the critically acclaimed In ‘Light of Dark Days‘ EP. In April 2017 the bands debut album ‘Anatomy Of Loss‘ was released via Grindscene Records, accompanied by five music videos, receiving excellent reviews worldwide, and was streamed exclusively by Metal Hammer UK.

The Crawling have spread the misery drenched album through a strong live performance, with support from a loyal fan base; most notably appearing at Inferno Metal Festival (Norway), Bloodstock Open Air (UK), Seige of Limerick (IRE), Metal Days (SLO), Shellshockfest (Malta), Uprising (UK), Incinerationfest (UK), Mammothfest (UK) and Full Metal Mensa (GER).

2018 is the year for the sophomore release; ‘Wolves and the Hideous White’ featuring six brand new tracks, building on the sound of their debut. The album reflects upon the human desire to belong, the sacrifices made to be part of someone, disillusion from loss of self, and the final inability to escape. 

Vocalist/guitarist Andy Clarke comments;

Wolves and the Hideous White is an evolution from the debut album, and transcended from misery into disgust. I have continued to explore human emotions, and as always, our music is inspired by what I see in the world that surrounds me. We live in an age where people have become detached from each other, but the inherent craving to be with someone is overwhelming. As a species we are programmed to search for a mate, and the majority will sacrifice anything to get it; including themselves.

This album came together quite quickly, and was created with extremely focused efforts. The music, lyrics, and content reflects this with a more venomous edge than what came before.”

“Most notable is how The Crawling have produced an album of intelligence and, despite the guttural roar of frontman Andy Clarke, of rough hewn beauty… with Wolves And The Hideous White, The Crawling have perfectly rendered their graceful and destructive cadence with ease.” – WORSHIP METAL – Worship Metal
