Hateful Abandon

The recording of “Famine (or into the Bellies of Worms)” is complete, it is now possible to state with absolute confidence: Hateful Abandon is England’s finest, most unique new band. Dark pop, post-punk and a hint of black metal collide in dream-like anthems of deeply personal and lurid art. Hateful Abandon are genre-defining and totally unrestrained by any conventions.

Instantly memorable songs are crafted with intricately textured guitars, an earthy bass and perfectly accented drums. The vocals are unparalleled and a brave contrast to the lazy, predictable efforts of many bands in any of the genres Hateful Abandon approaches. Battling between rich, deep, strong yet still human and fragile;and the most painful, retching screams.

Famine is a landmark album, independent from any perceived contexts. It marks the beginning of a band about to tear through underground music.

Description

Move is the long anticipated follow-up to 2008’s Famine. The music is darker, the lyrics are bleaker. The planet is dying, they’re printing money to burn it. Forming single-file into the abyss. They are trying to slow the inevitable;this is the sound of acceptance.Hateful Abandon present their despondent and angry reaction in Move. The sound remains uniquely their own, but progresses with new techniques and a harder attitude. A strong leading bass, twisting and ambient guitars, the percussive backbone from Swine, new electronic prominsence and the soulful roar of V/M!
Influence remains from seventies and eighties visionaries Killing Joke, Public Image Ltd, Dead Can Dance, Joy Division, The Cure;and a background in Black Metal, though these are only pointers to the distinctive sound Hateful Abandon have managed to refine on Move.

Reviews

Move is one of the most impressive post-punk, or even rock albums I’ve heard in a long time. I don’t even know where to begin with this album;it’s absolutely fantastic. – The Inarguable
The musicianship and song structuring in the album is phenomenal, the relentless procession of ideas is as intense as the music itself. A total experience. – Not For Resale

Reviews

Famine is, as a whole, a fantastic album. With a concrete vision and style that never falters. – Viva Fate
This is a genious mix of post-punk, dark pop and ambient, meeting old school black metal. – Beat the Blizzard
…understated masterpieces, with sinewy bass lines reminiscent of “Shadowplay” and other dark classics from Unknown Pleasures – The Rock Blogger
Ich kann aus meiner Begeisterung keinen Hehl machen und freue mich auf neues Material. Derweilen wird mein CD-Player die Funktion der Repeat-Taste einmal richtig kennen lernen dürfen. – Schwarze News
