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.


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
