picked this up two days after it was released... Shai Hulud are back, and they are as gold as ever. they play solid metalcore with hardcore punk/progressive bits running through their veins.
the album art is reminiscent of typical hair-rah-in-your-face metal bands (which i am not terribly keen on), but these guys actually make a damn good point with their fairly hateful music (check out the lyrics. poignant.) - and i love these guys. haha.
anyhoo, give this album a listen. they've been around for a while, they know what they're doing. :)
