- Victor Ribas: Drummer and backing vocals (2010-present.)
- Hurt (self-titled EP; 2000)

- Vol. II (2007)
- Goodbye to the Machine (2009)
- The Crux (2012)
Hurt provides examples of:
- Bondage Is Bad: "Cuffed" comes off this way; it's apparently criticizing loveless sex but the fact it's also bondage is telling.
- Breakup Song: "Losing", "So When," "How We End Up Alone", and others.
- BSOD Song: "Overdose." Loren's singing becomes increasingly loud, desperate and generally unhinged as the song progresses.
- Chronological Album Title: Vol. I and II.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: The narrator of "Got Jealous", unsurprisingly enough.
- Digital Piracy Is Evil: Mentioned in "Flowers," amusingly right alongside a Take That to their old record label.
- Destructive Romance: "Abuse of SID".
- Driven to Suicide: The narrator of "Well," although it fails (the gun isn't loaded.)
- Drugs Are Bad: "Loded".
- Eye Scream: Two separate comparisons to "a needle in the eye" on The Crux.
- False Rape Accusation: The woman in "Pandora" threatens the narrator with this if he doesn't Murder the Hypotenuse.
- Grief Song: "House Carpenter," "That (Such A Thing)", possibly "Alone With The Sea".
- Hidden Track: "Flowers" is attached at the end of "That (Such A Thing)" on the album, although it's also available as a bonus download to people who bought the album new.
- Love Hurts
- Metal Scream: Infrequent, but it happens, the last couple minutes of "Overdose" in particular.
- Mohs Scale of Lyrical Hardness: Gets as high as an 8 (or 9 for suicide references) in some songs; rarely falls to 4 or below. They're named "Hurt" for a reason, folks.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Ranges from 1 ("Assurance," "Aftermath") up to around a 7 ("Role Martyr X", "Ten Ton Brick").
- Murder Ballad: "Got Jealous," overlapping with Obsession Song.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: See above.
- Protest Song: "Wars." Who would have guessed from that title, right?
- Religion Rant Song: "Adonai" is a type 1 (Rage Against the Heavens); "Rapture" and "Talking to God" are both type 2 (religion as a pernicious influence). Various religions (and atheists) get a bit of poking at in "Flowers", along with just about everything else.
- Take That: "Flowers" delivers a string of these.
