The Murder Capital -When I have fears

The long awaited debut album from The Murder Capital is here.
Just having my first listen and it sounds mighty impressive so far.
Don't Cling to life and For Everything the opener sounds like the standouts so far.

I saw them at EP by pure chance and was blown away. It wouldn't even be a genre I really would have enjoyed.

Also extremely impressed. They appear to be getting 5/5 reviews so far!

Was ok but lacking the intensity these guys are capable of ..very little crowd surfing or moshing apart from the end song also an encore is never a bad thing.
How did this song not get on the album?By far the best song I have heard from this band.

I’ve listened to it a couple of times and I think it’s excellent.

I Think the album's pretty good. One criticism I could have is that the production is a bit gutless on a few songs - not that it's desperate or anything, but that it doesn't really truly convey the force of them live. That's what impressed me the most about them when I saw them: their songs had real power, a wall of noise feel. I suppose the live sound of a band is a different beast.

Very promising debut, glad to see them getting a lot of good press.

2019 is turning into a landmark year for Irish alternative music with this album, Dogrel, and the forthcoming Girl Band album.

The released song from Girl Band album is very much samey as before. It kinda fades to nothing away about 4 minutes - goes on for another 2 minutes of bit of noise.
Maybe it's a grower.
