about

Adrian's murder'n crime tales would work as a Tim Burton soundtrack: pitch-black moments, blackhearted and gloomy, yet sizzling and captivating. Adrian's virulent and venemous vocals deliver grim stories with musical echoes of Nick Cave and Tom Waits.

A review from Blurt:
Gothic rock has been so swept up in the last few years by the Twilight zone of radio-friendly pop (thank you, eyeliner-wearing emo bands and H.I.M.) that the second LP by Adrian H and the Wounds sounds positively innovative. The piano-pounding H draws his inspiration less from old school British goth (though there's definitely a touch of Bauhaus in there) than from the creepier end of Tom Waits (a connection made clear by a cover of Waits' "Hoist That Rag.") Rather than revolve around guitars and dance beats, arrangements exist solely in support of H's shock suspenstories and cigs ‘n' absinthe speak/sing, with a few electronic grooves and sampled sounds floating in the mix.
From the sexual predation of "That Hurts" to the sinister incest of "Bad Man" and the cartwheel into madness of "The Night My Mother Screamed," the Texan-bred/Portland-based H's characters don't shy away from depravity - it's like splatterpunk without the gore. Even a cover of "Chim Chim Cher-ee" (from Disney's Mary Poppins) becomes an unsavory seduction tactic in the Wounds' gnarled hands. "Would you like to hear of the things I've seen?" he seethes in the opening cut "Memory," "of the horror and the evil of human beings?" Given his tone, we should politely decline, but we can't turn away from tragedy on display, can we?
