Crawl are a band from Texas that plays a mixture of black metal, sludge and noise and this is a review of their 2017 ep "This Sad Cadav'r" which will be released in September by Black Bow Records.
Atmospheric drones start off the ep along with some field recordings a few seconds later and elements of ambient are also used at times and after a few minutes the music goes into a heavier sludge direction along with some black metal screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
All of the tracks a re very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a decent amount of diversity and elements of harsh noise are also used at times while demonic growls are also added into some parts of the songs and all of the tracks stick to a very slow musical direction.
Crawl plays a musical style that takes black metal, sludge and noise and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Crawl are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, sludge and noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "II". 8 out of 10.
