Shai Hulud

A positively themed metalcore band with some straight-edge and Christian leanings, the influential Shai Hulud have maintained a strong band identity since their original formation in the mid-'90s, even though their apparent inability to stick with one lineup, label, hometown, or even band name has left them with a convoluted history.

Shai Hulud formed in Pompano Beach, Florida, taking their name from the giant desert worms central to Frank Herbert's Dune mythology. The original lineup consisted of guitarists Matt Fox and Oliver Chapoy, bassist Dave Silber, and drummer Steve Kleisath, who split his time between Shai Hulud and Strongarm. Original singer Damian Moyal left the band during sessions for their first EP, 1997's A Profound Hatred of Man, replaced by Chad Gilbert in time for the band's full-length debut, Hearts Once Nourished with Hope and Compassion.

Over the course of several split EPs -- 1998's The Fall of Every Man with Indecision, 2000's A Whole New Level of Sickness (Together on One Convenient Format) with Another Victim, and Crush 'Em All, Vol. 1 with Boysetsfire -- the band's lineup continued its mutations, with new member Matt Fletcher first replacing Chapoy on guitar before shifting to bass, Gilbert leaving to play guitar in New Found Glory, and Kleisath leaving to form Further Seems Forever with Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba.

By the time the band recorded their second full-length album, 2003's That Within Blood Ill Tempered, the lineup had moved from Florida to Poughkeepsie, New York, and settled down to a relatively stable quartet: new recruit Geert van der Velde on vocals, Fox, Fletcher, and drummer Tony Tintari. After van der Welde departed the band in 2004, Fletcher and Fox announced that Shai Hulud was disbanding following a brief farewell tour (with Gilbert temporarily returning on vocals) and the pair was forming a new band, the Warmth of Red Blood.

Following the 2005 release of the wryly titled odds-and-sods compilation A Comprehensive Retrospective: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Release Bad and Useless Recordings, Fletcher and Fox reversed course, and in the spring of 2006 announced that Shai Hulud were re-forming with a new lineup featuring singer Eric Dellon (who is also in Fletcher and Fox's tongue-in-cheek thrash side project Zombie Apocalypse), second guitarist Ryan Burns, and drummer Brian Go. The re-formed Shai Hulud signed with Metal Blade Records and began work on a new album in the summer of 2006, while former label Revelation Records released a compilation called A Profound Hatred of Man that gathered the EP of that title along with all of the non-LP and split-EP tracks the band recorded between 1997 and 2001. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Who the F@CK WROTE THIS DESCRIPTION?

WHO EVER IT IS... YOU'RE A FREAKING IDIOT. HOW DID YOU GET YOUR JOB DOUCHE BAG? YOUR KNEES MUST BE HURTING...

JACKASS...
"A positively themed metalcore band"?!?
did i miss something? are we talking about the same Shai Hulud?
i remember a misanthropic - hell borderline nihilistic - hate machine.

pandora rules but they gotta get better people on the bio writing.

Shai Hulud is f**king brutal and will always be one of the best hardcore bands in existence. Classic.
From grindcore to hardcore to metalcore; misanthropy has always been a good theme.Classi c metalcore.
sucks
woot
you guys don't know crap about metalcore or melodic hardcore. shai hulud is classic. my second favorite metalcore band from the 90's next to integrity.
you people dont know anything about music
silenthawk
Whats this junk doing on my station?
the_coming_c u r s e 2 0 0 1
yep, total Crap!!!
docmiltfried
this is garbage
shai hulud's 1st line up set a very high bar for hardcore and has inspired millions of people world wide. the power and emotion they were able to express is unexplainabl e . great respect should be given for there increadable passion and quality. the other lines up's feed off there music and made there own great sound.
misanthropy pure kind of sucks. sorry guys, i've been a huge SH fan for years. the old stuff is amazing. the re-releases of "Profound Hatred" and "Hearts" are awesome. they are both great compilations that fully express the intensity and angst of the band's earlier years. things started to get a little weird with "That Within Blood Ill-Tempered " . but i got to see SH at Hellfest 2004 when Damian Moyal came back to do one final show with them, and it was probably the best 30 minutes of my life.
carrollrd
HOW DO I DELET THIS STUFF
carrollrd
how can i delet the ones i do not want ???????????? ? ? ? ?
Matt Ian Mazzali's voice on "Misanthropy Pure" is SO freakin' powerful!
Thank you pandora, I may never heard of this band, kick a**!!!!
Best song : Given Flight By Demon's Wings.
Hearts Once Nourished with Hope and Compassion is one of the best hardcore/met a l albums to come out of the late 90s. At a time when hardcore bands were getting so generic, Shai Hulud surfaced and blew them all away. Deep intelligent lyrics, awesome guitar work with great song structure. Song after song the rage builds and leaves the listener with chills of fist clenching satisfaction .

Set Your Bhody Ablaze! BURN!
Fistacuffs is right: Dune is friggin fantastic. Frank Herbert knew what he was doing!
cerdom
Chorus of the Dissimilar is really sweet but their other stuff doesn't sound like it from what I've heard. :(
hooray dune references!
chux don't know s**t, and niether does the person who wrote this discription.
I'm supposed to be in love with this band because of the impact they made, right? Well I'm just not inspired and I hate bands that change thier line-up every 5 seconds, I don't believe in Christian Rock, and I loathe bands like new found glory. Report me to the scence police already.....
these reviews tongue anus, who can u be a postive themed band and have an album called a profound hatred of man, i always thought they were somewhat misanthropic
bless thy maker and his passing

-Liet
ok... so they r christian? or just positive pessimists?
cerdom
How are these guys one of the most influential in metal history if I've never even heard of them before?

Anyways I think they're okay.
I like the music but especially that heavy Dune ref. easily my fav book and one of my new fav bands
Is that a word? Posi-core? Just the fact that I read that makes me laugh.
destinedforv a l h o l l a
Yea seriously. if anything the lyrics are way more negative then most bands.
"positively themed metalcore", Shai Hulud's lyrics are extremely negative. I would never associate them with Posi-Core.
You're stupid as hell.
This is one of the most influential bands in hardcore/met a l ' s history.
Let's see you try and accomplish what they have.
LAME
