about

Remixed and remastered version of the first Abandon EP originally recorded in 2005.

"Really, it should be called Abandon Hope All Ye Who Listen Here, so relentlessly morbid is this half-hour offering. Excellent. Taking his main cue, apparently, from Swans – without doubt the bleakest band of all time – Umair creates a landscape of remorselessly portentous synthetic chamber music that grinds and rumbles like gothic thunder. Church organs swell and flatten surrounding buildings, guitars spangle like dying stars, while slow-burning beats dare the dead to dance. At its heaviest, as on ‘Sick Of My Fears’ it sounds like a black mass disco; elsewhere there are echoes of Belgian 4AD signings Clan Of Xymox. The whole thing is a bit like a miniature black hole slowly swallowing up any remaining light in the vicinity. The sort of stuff parents would worry about their kids listening to in the isolation of their bedrooms. And thus, something to be heartily encouraged." -
