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.

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!

(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!

I heard this album after (hed) p.e's second album, Broke and was definately equally as impressed. inspirational riffs and a feel good factor that makes you mant to get up and go mental!! gorgeous songs, well written, played and sung. definately one of my favourite albums.

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.

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!!

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.
