Doom/death trio The Crawling are set to fly the flag for Northern Ireland at Metal Days in Slovenia in July, writes Paul Castles.
The band are one of a host of emerging talents from across the Irish Sea and left a very favourable impression when performing at Bloodstock last year.
Their immense debut album Anatomy Of Loss further cemented their reputation as ones to watch and the prestigious Slovenia slot gives them a chance to impress a whole new audience.
Andy Clarke, guitar/vocals, told us: “We are beyond excited about playing Metal Days! We have played a few large festivals so far, and it is just the most enjoyable experience a band can get.
“To travel even further afield and do it again is fantastic. Slovenia is a magnificent country, and the setting for the festival is just serene – I can’t wait to look out from the stage across the beautiful scenery; not to mention we get to share the stage with Venom Inc and Batushka!”
If you’re heading to Metal Days you’ll be able to catch The Crawling on Monday 24 July, on the Boško Bursač Stage (16:15).
