YomaBarr Hardcorish it is, yeah :) it's like looking at my own roots after ages and from the other side. Funny feeling :)

Arrogant Bastard The aural equivalent to an unfettered punch in the solar pleuxus. Crawl take you with them, dragging you through the muck and the mire that is their brand of death metal. Tossing in bits of hardcore, crust and other impurities for added effect, this release will leave you soiled and loving it.
You really should shower after this.
Favorite track: Reject The Cross.

about

From the label that put out releases of PAGANIZER, HENRY KANE and URSINNE which upheld the brand of Swedish death metal, you have CRAWL unleashing their debut full length that sets new standards for the style. Crushing Swedeath honouring the progenitors and at the same time stepping out their shadows by concocting a vile mix with influences of punk/crust and hardcore is what's on offer here. 'Rituals' is an irreverent exercise in bombarding the classic style with fresh elements and lending to the staid style new vitality. Prepare to be shocked, annihilated and thrilled at the prospect of listening to the new masterpiece.
