Self-professed miserable Irish trio THE CRAWLING are a doom/death metal act from the concrete maze of Northern Ireland. The closure of 2018 saw the release of their outstanding sophomore album, Wolves and the Hideous White – an exploration of the human desire to belong. An album we made our Album of the Week back in April of last year and described it as:
“Making music as bleak as their home town town of Lisburn, Northern Ireland, The Crawling have managed to evoke strong memories of the fabled Peaceville Three in their 90’s prime and, with Wolves and The Hideous White, an already great year for metal has just got that little bit better (and bitter). Rarely has disgust sounded so damn good!”
Their latest single “Rancid Harmony” focuses on formation and breakdown of relationships, and why we crave such like in a modern age.
Frontman Andy Clarke commented; “Is experiencing a connection with someone on any level better than none at all? “Rancid Harmony” reflects the facade of enjoyment, the dance we sell to the world, when inside it’s nothing but rot, and everyone sees it.”
The album is available now from all major outlets and streaming services:
