Does anybody remember the booklet of 'The Splinter Album' of Zao? It's got a page with lyrics and the page beside it has a painting. 'A Heartbeat Behind' by The Hurt Process seems to have the same intention but these paintings are based on a love theme. Song titles like "The Night Before The Morning After" and "A Heartbeat Behind" are developed into the same direction. It looks like one of the singers, Dan or Tom, has found the love of his live and wanted to declare this to the whole world. And the best music to combine that is popular emo/metalcore. This movement, which started some years ago, is already over its top. The Hurt Process is like a rip-off of Thrice, Thursday or a more melodic Poison The Well. If you still haven’t had enough of this style you sure could check out this five piece because the song material is great and the production is even as good as most of the bands in this genre. The melodic and clean voice is a little bit a pain in the ass because it just didn’t sound natural. The acoustic song “The Night Before The Morning After” is the best example of that. An exception is brought in the song “My Scandinavian Ride”, here the vocals match perfect with the music. And the dynamic mix between hard and soft makes this the best song of this disc together with “Take To You”. The rest is average but I guess a lot of young kids will definitely like this. I do hope for them that they first check out the above mentioned bands.
