The Hammering Process

Brian Quincy Newcomb

The Hammering Process, the fifth album from Little Rock’s Living Sacrifice, couldn’t be more appropriately named. The band’s music lives in a world that is dominated by the thrash and speed metal models that thrived in the mid-to-late ’80s and pays little heed to the modern melding of hard music with hip-hop and other forms. The occasional fluid guitar solo or odd space left open for some interesting percussion by Matthew Putman set the songs apart, but mostly it’s the pounding of drummer Lance Garvin and crunchy riveting guitars that define the territory.

Amid all this mad, percussive noise, vocalist Bruce Fitzhugh spews out a blathering assault that you’ll need the lyric sheet to dissect, and even then you may want to spend some time weaving through the dense poetry herein. "Altered Life" speaks of the peace of God, but often Living Sacrifice describes the hell of absence, which leads to heroin, self-abuse and death. Overall, this heavy rock tract manages a sound that will not be easily denied.
