DeathCrawl are a band from Cleveland, Ohio that plays an apocalyptic mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Acceptable Level Of Misery".
Distorted Drones start off the album along with some heavy doom metal riffs a few seconds later while the vocals also bring in a great amount of high pitched sludge style screams as well as utilizing growls at times and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies.
At times the vocals add in touches of hardcore as well as having their melodic stoner rock moments while blast beats are also utilized briefly when the music speeds up along with a few tracks being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses psychedelic elements can also be heard briefly as well as the main focus being mostly on a slower musical direction.
DeathCrawl plays a musical style that takes stoner, doom and sludge metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover apocalyptic, death, war, and depression themes.
In my opinion DeathCrawl are a very great sounding apocalyptic mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "False Oracle" "Entombed By The Things We Seek" and "Perpetually Damned". 8 out of 10.
