The Murder Capital consider their unapologetically vicious debut, to be “a purple bruise on the hard knee of the so-called post-punk resurgence”, and, bloody hell, does it succeed at that. It is a brutal, rhythmically-charged meditation on “accepting that which you fear, loving that which you hate [and] feeling the excess that can only be found in isolation.”

With the legendary Flood producing, the record’s philosophy is perfectly integrated into the brutal textures and atmospheres, from the pounding menace of For Everything and Feeling Fades, through to the divinity of On Twisted Ground. WIHF is confident, multifaceted and breath-taking, giving plenty of food for thought, whilst also being an exhilarating face-melter too.
