Review: Shai Hulud – Reach Beyond The Sun

Rated:

4/5

Old-schoolers Shai Hulud helped invent metalcore, combining jagged metallic riffing with emotive hardcore in a way that worked. And all these years later, they’re still mixing the more melodic sounds of Revelation Records’ roster (check out the powerful “Medicine to the Dead”) with the intense strains of the HC underground (think deep Unbroken tracks, then crank up “Man Into Demon: And their Faces are Twisted with the Pain of Living”). With this latest (featuring the return of New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert on vocals), they prove it all still works in a big way, a sign that they’ve been doing it right all along. GREG PRATT
