"Crawling has two opposite polarities, one is the warmth that embraces the listener, the other is a disturbing state of entrapment with no way out of darkness. It's deeply melancholic, but has a brightness that comes to the surface with each consequent listen..." - Terra Relicta
As the heart atrophies, words lose meaning. Numbness consumes. Yet in the darkest night, the flame of hope burns brightest.
The fourth chapter; crawling, is an intimate portrayal of the dark recesses of the soul: beginning in depression, losing the self, spiraling into madness and ultimately arriving at despair. To truly know one's self is to face one's most terrible demons.
crawling melds dark, downtempo trip hop with an industrial aesthetic and haunting ambience. Warm, melodic and intimate; to listen is to walk the path.
