THE HURT PROCESS
"Drive By Monologue" (Victory; 2004)
Reviewed by Snidermann
I had trouble trying to pinpoint what The Hurt Process and "Drive By Monologue" was all about and - in my exploration of why that was, I found myself really liking the band and this CD.
At first, I thought the vocals were too wimpy and just like all the other sponge rock bands out there. However, after a few cuts, I discovered that the vocals ran the gamut from melodic to heavy and just about everything else in between. Yeah, I liked the heavier stuff better than the lighter stuff, but - for the most part - it was all good. The band's interesting mixture of heavy metal and punk rock style generates a very unique sound.
"Drive By Monologue" is a very good recording. If it had been more consistent (read "heavier") all the way through, I would have enjoyed it even more.
On another note, the artwork here is simple, stunning and provocative and that accounts for something.
The Hurt Process: Darren Toms - Drums; Tom Diamond - Guitar; Alan Burent Smith - Guitar; Mark Andrews - Vocals; Dan Lawerence - Vocals; Duncan Mgilvary - Bass.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
