5.0 out of 5 stars G-Punk is the new revolution!, 30 Jan 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
(hed)p.e. earn their fans by doing what other nu-metal acts only claim to do, really adding hip-hop to their mix. Not for them the occasional beats of Korn or Fred Durst's limp (sic) rapping. (hed)pe bring hip hop and hardcore together better than any one else, more sonic, more pumping and still heavier than a bag of spanners- buy this now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funky, fresh, and metallic -- serve it up raw!, 12 Oct 2005
By 
LM BUTCHER (London, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
When (hed) released their debut LP it was right at the height of the "Nu-Metal" craze, largely propagated by Korn, but it still stands out head and shoulders above what is mostly music made by angry, self-absorbed wannabes. I guess the closest group to them are early-era Incubus, although (hed) are probably a little more aggressive. Despite the band knowing exactly how to land a heavy groove, the thing that really sets them apart is the astonishing charisma and vocal talent of their dynamic lead singer, Jahred; a truly versatile frontman mixing up speedy raps, guttural growling, and melodic singing. All the tunes have that distinctive (hed) sound (Korn-esque chord voicings, clean-ish detuned riffs) which remains across all their albums and is testament to their craft. Stand out songs include 'P.O.S.', 'Serpent Boy', 'Darky', and 'IFO'. If there's a problem with the album it's that some songs drag and occasionally sound a bit 'cut & paste'. But it has a pretty good raw sound and sometimes that unfocused air lends itself for the better; you get the impression these are young boisterous chaps and are a hoot to watch live! (Which they are.)In summary, a really tight-knit unit offering something unique, energetic and attitude-soaked. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hedpe; The Eternally Underrated, 17 April 2002
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
This first album captures the more experimental stages in the career of one of metal's most threatening and punishingly powerful live bands. As per usual, MCUD's vocals are tight enough to compete with the best hiphop artists including his personal hero DMX. Alongside this though he posesses a brutal roar and sometimes surprisingly gentle singing voice. Behind him plays a musically concrete and incredibly able band who pulsate with mindblowing rhythms and awesome riffage skills. No wonder they have the approval of Senn Dogg of Cypress Hill fame. Buy the albums. Buy the singles. But nothing can equate to their live show; see these crazy muthas NOW!! Peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars This band are completely under-rated !!, 22 Nov 1999
By 
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
Hed(pe) are definitely the best new rock band of the past two years. Mixing funk, punk, rock and rap they have created an album that offers something for everyone. 'Darky' and 'Ground' have already been released as singles in the US and their seminal tune 'Serpent Boy' received blanket coverage thanks to it being used for several commercials in the US. Buy this CD if you like it loud and heavy and I promise you will be blown away!!

4.0 out of 5 stars pure nu metal, 21 Sep 2007
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
this band are so nu metal that it almost hurts.
but the thing is that they were always a little bit better than the rest purely because they didnt do the whole whinney ive been abused when i was younger rubbish.
the songs are a little bit more universal and they have some nice upbeat bouncy songs.
they are a little more hip hop influenced than some of the other nu metal pack aswell. this is aided by having a vocalist who is exceptionally versatile. the boy can rap shout and growl with the best of them and his talents lend themselves perfectly to the noise that (hed)pe choose to make.
if you dont like nu metal this lot arent gonna convince you but if you are new to the genre you do alot worse than give this debut a spin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mis-information?, 18 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
Bartender is on the Hed-PE "broke" album, not this one. Still a funky record though; mixing funk, metal and punk into one seamless sound. Well worth going to see live as well.

By A Customer
This review is from: Hed Pe (Audio CD)
This album is great and i cant stop listening to it all day long, i recommend this to anyone who likes rage against the machine because (hed)p.e are alot like rage against the machine or mabys even better. The Best song on the album has to be bartender. It is just superb, you couldnt ask for anything more. Like I said Rage Against The Machine are great or brilliant and (hed)p.e are probably better so get this if you like Rage Against The Machine then get this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
