this album is suprising., i though they fell the f*ck off
Horrible band. Possibly the worst band in hardcore.
get off of hearts once nourished al-f*cking ready. that was f*cking 11 years ago. what kind of retard would possibly even THINK of comparing this record with that one, regardless of the fact that it's a classic. even braindead monotonous tough guy bands would have an evolution in their style after 10 years. this album is at least a 9. completely floored me. the affirmation that it is not a "replacement" for hearts once nourished should have nothing to do with the f*cking record review. "m
lol....the matt fox experience. there's more punch ins on this gay cd than the last gay cd...& they're sloppier too. however much better than i expected - still a mediocre at best release. glad i didn't pay for it. i'm tired of washed up scenesters cashing in. nick - you're a big gay...you only reviewed it well because you wish matt fox would let you suck him. <3
The paragraph about the evolution of hardcore bands is totally ridiculous. Man, you can't stop saying how metalcore is redundant, now you say it's good they stick to their sound and the bands evolving suck. ok. But yeah, from what I heard, this is a solid album.
From what I've heard so far, it is MUCH better than the Geert-era Shai Hulud. Geert always sounded like a 12-year-old boy who was kicked in the nuts. I liked Geert's enthusiasm, but his voice was just plain weak. This new vocalist however seems to have a MUCH more suiting heavy voice more along the lines of Chad Gilbert who was Shai Hulud's best vocalist to date. The great production they now have is EXACTLY what music this technical, precise, and at times beautiful requires. Thier last full-len
i could do without the paragraph about 90's metalcore bands progression. But i do agree shail hulud is amazing and so is this album. they are ground breakin in themselves and sound nothing like other bands so why change. Im glad this is better than within blood ill tempered.
bands grow up and stop writing shitty metalcore sometimes...weird huh?
This album is awesome. The production is a breath of fresh air for this band. FINALLY.
stop giving albums that have been out for a week and forgotten about 3 weeks from now f*cking 8s, especially when they suck if the new shai hulud is a 8 then what the f*ck is the old shai hulud? an 11? wrong they're both 0s
i dont understand how people can hate on this band. the music these guys write is just soo talented and soo good.
f*cking 8/10? Lambgoat sucks at life. Get better music.
In my opinion, better than any of the old stuff. Love it. 9/10 easily
Amazing Album. Cant compare with HONWHAC
f*ck what people say, this is a good release.
is it just me or is this album boring as f*ck?
This is 8/10, really good. That within blood ill-tempered is 10/10. Pokemon red 12/10.
Album is good. I could have done withou the whole metalcore paragraph, plus I don't think you can consider Dillinger a metalcore band, regardless of the quality of their releases...
thank God for a Shai Hulud album. or thank dune or something. but either way, got they are writing again. f*ck all the bands that "move into different styles" instead of perfecting or continuing the sound that made us want to listen in the first place.
aversionline was right they forgot to add bass to the mix! thi smaybe deserves a 6 out of 10.
How is no one mentioning how they butchered set your body ablaze? wow
this album is actually really f*cking good and a much better effort than the last album which was god awful. I'm glad they are doing better this time around.
the entire second paragraph is worthless. f*ck this review.
Not sure what shit boom box you are listening to this on but the bass is loud.
without a doubt the best metalcore band operating today. a really great album that shows how metalinspired hardcore should be done. Matt Fox is the most underrated guitarist ever. Also: Not as good as Hearts Once Nourished.... but we all knew that already.
As far as I can tell, its the first time I've heard Shai Hulud sound decent on a recording. After only 10 years or so of trying hahaha jesus.

still my favorite vocabulary-metal band.
Never understood all the hate for Shai Hulud. I like this album and most of their stuff. 8/10 is a good rating for this album. Suck it.
Set Your Body Ablaze was most definitely butchered. They should have just added the original recording remastered by Zeuss.
new singer lacks the intensity needed to front this band. bring back geert.
I hate it when bands re-record songs already widely available, in this case on the original split ep, or the remastered version. Vocally, this doesn't have the pathos of Chad or Geert -- mehh.
I found this album to be quite good. I don't know why everyone is pissed off about it.
The recording quality of the old Set Your Body Ablaze sounds like shit. perhaps the new singer isn't as intense, but I could see why they would want to have a clear release of a classic song. who cares? I prefer the original... but I love the clarity of the new version. There are parts I couldn't quite make out before that I can understand now.
When are you f*cking morons going to stop crying about poison the well not sounding like opposite of december?
I just picked up this release and it's ridic. Highbeamreview.com gave it A 9. http://www.highbeamreview.com/review.php?id=100
actually none of the album is butchered. my friend J is on a few of the songs and all of them were taken in one shot and all rehearsed before hand. album is amazing. good to see them kickin again and deffinately sticking to originality rather than making the same music that everyone else has ripped them off of. im also glad to see metal blade actually putting money into one of their smaller bands for once.
Sheer brilliance. this album is everything I've ever wanted Shai Hulud to be.
