Includes CD Exclusive Song: Spies in the Wire (Cabaret Voltaire cover)
We were always going to get darker. It's been the plan all along.
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.
Lydon wailing like a Gull in my ears, E. Smith grunting-ah, Lemmy purring...Brindley and Price smashing lager and smoking the bass.
