The Hurt Process were a British and American metal/rock band. After two top-selling full-lengths, 2004's 'Drive-By Monologue' and 2005's 'A Heartbeat Behind', and a few member changes, the band decided to call it a day in September 2006. They will be sorely missed amongst fans of emotional music and metal alike for their crushing beatdowns and soaring vocal harmonies which manage to draw from influences as varied as Thursday and Killswitch Engage.
The band was originally a six-piece, with a dual-vocal system of harmonised vocals and powerful screams, made up of Mark Andrews and Daniel Lawrence. The guitarists were Tom Diamond and Alun Burnet-Smith, with Duncan McGilvary playing bass and Darren Toms on drums.
Andrews left the band mid-way through their stint on the 2004 Vans Warped Tour, with guitarist Alun Burnet-Smith leaving shortly after their return to the UK. He was soon replaced with the bands guitar tech, Adam Yeoman, who soon became the band's new drummer. Daniel Lawrence left shortly thereafter, leaving the band as a four-piece in desperate need of a new vocalist. Ivan Ferreira stepped in and the band begun writing as a five-piece, with guitarist Tom Diamond taking on a large amount of the singing responsibilities.
The band enjoyed success in both the UK and America thanks to their labels Golf (in the UK), and Victory (in the US), and toured with such big-name acts as Taking Back Sunday, Underoath and Poison The Well.
