Man, this new album has been growing on me immensely. A Human Failing is an instant classic and the rest of the album doesn't fall short either. It's cool to see a band establish a signature sound and stick around for as long as they do. When I started listening to Hardcore these guys were around and they still put out great albums. I don't listen to much Hardcore these days anymore, but Shai Hulud is an exception.
love them since 90's,every album is amazing,but i must say first two are my favorite,just listening to the new one and so far it's promising as i expected.have their complete discography on vinyl,see them a couple times on stage,kinda getting old with them:)
why is everyone listening to such shity bands like Asking Alexandria?
Shai Hulud is more technical, the don't care about this whole commercial shit AND every song sound's different.
thats the spirit of true Hardcore :)
I love those first three Shai Hulud albums, every album is different, accompanied by thoughtful/deep lyrics. I love "Hearts once Nourished..." for it's old school hardcore anthems and "Blood ill-tempered" for it's melodic and technical moments and "Mysanthropy Pure" for being the most progressive and heavy out of the bunch. That being said "Reach Beyond The Sun" has lived up to the Shai Hulud name. I feel lyrically Matt Fox has reached a new level, while the music takes influence not only from the previous three but all genres of music. It's gonna be hard to top this.
