With a raging, schizophrenic blend of pitch perfect vocal melodies, brutal breakdowns and killer pop hooks, THE HURT PROCESS are set to turn the tables on the underground music scene. In 2004 Victory released their debut, Drive By Monologue, to critical raves from the likes of Rock Sound, who said, "This muscular debut is another shimmering example of what can be achieved with a talented British band and a decent recording studio." THE HURT PROCESS are poised for attack again with their second Victory release, A Heartbeat Behind. A dual-pronged vocal attack that is as soothing as it is serrated, A Heartbeat Behind melds a love for bands such as THURSDAY, JIMMY EAT WORLD and ATREYU. Claustrophobic and intertwining fretwork is coupled with the best breakdowns in metal, hardcore or emo combined. A rumbling low end this side of a SICK OF IT ALL record ensures that THE HURT PROCESS will be making waves across genres with A Heartbeat Behind.

"Most bands these days tend to go from a heavy as hell sound to one that is soft and bland. The Hurt Process has done the opposite of this and done it with mixed results.
I'm not one for emo personally, but i really enjoyed their first album and thought it stood out among other emo-core bands. The second i put this on i almost thought they were a new band.
The change came about after one of the vocalists decided to do some guitar work after the other guitar player left (he still does the clean vocals though). There are some really good songs on here, i guess i just havent made the adjustment to the new style yet.
Some standout tracks include My Scandinavian Ride, Boogie Nights In Michigan and the acoustic song The Night Before The Morning After.
If you liked the first album, you may not take to this one too much. Maybe you should download some songs to see for yourself. If you like your music heavy but not TOO heavy then this might be what you're looking for. Hey, it even comes with a free air guitar, how could you not love that?"
