|The Hurt Process|
In 2002, The Hurt Process released the Another Day EP on Loudspeaker, to rave reviews from Big Cheese, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, and Rocksound who said: "This EP rocks harder than a Whitesnake roadie at a Venom concert!, You need The Hurt Process. Amazing. Destined to be on the UKs hottest new bands".
The band's debut album, Drive By Monologue, was also received with critical praise. Mike Davies of BBC Radio said, "Who says that Americans do it better? The Hurt Process will be exploding out of the underground with Drive By Monologue. This is how melodic hardcore should be done". Victory Records released the album in North America, prompting praise from Revolver, who said, "Drive By Monologue seamlessly shifts gears from grinding hardcore to introspective emo without ever losing its keen sense of direction. Stick along for the ride".
The band played several weeks on the Warped Tour 2004, expanding their fan base stateside. The band split up in 2006.
"This band rocks harder than a Whitesnake roadie at a venom concert" - Big Cheese
"The aural equivalent of being punched in the face only for your attacker to offer to kiss the bruising better" - Kerrang!
"This was another winning set from the Hurt Process lads, who it must be said are going from strength to strength. They were the act of the night and they provoked the best, if somewhat chaotic, reaction from the exuberant crowd." - BBC review of a live show.
