Within the past few hours the opening composition of the eleven –  Blitz – was made available in advance of the album.

Having had the opportunity to listen to the full release, I am able to attest Never Finished, Only Abandoned is an album to add to the collection on availability. An eleven track, just under three quarters of an hour LP which excavates its own sheltering bunkers under the listeners feet. A well put together release which has story-like flow to the collection of songs, that weave between dark apocalypse and moments of fleeting hopefulness and in many ways minds of the Jeff Wayne musical version of War Of The Worlds.

Blitz is the perfect scenario opening chapter for what follows and also my pick of the release – from its opening siren through to its closing burning wood – as the just under four and a half minute track shrouds the room in plaster wrecking drill-bits of electronics and wall collapsing bass loops.
