Album Review
Reviewed 2013-02-19
Artist: Shai Hulud Album: Reach Beyond the Sun
Genre: Metal/Hardcore Punk
FCC clean

*1.(2.56)- fierce vox, intense, raucous, anthemic, blasting out skull crushing riffs accompanied by similar song-structures used on the band’s sophomore album That Within Blood Ill-Tempered
2. (1.47)- layers of heavy distortion, short solo starts off, catchy riffs
3. (3.01)- chaos, relentless
4. (3.31)- mid-tempo, doom, metallic texture, darker, slow-paced, riff-driven ballad-of-sorts
5. (2.58)- melodic intro, evil, rebellious
*6. (3.21)- as usual, progressing, shifting and hearkening back to key moments and developing the independence and substantial essence of particular riffs and choruses
7. (1.43)- blast beats, speed
*8. (3.56)- furious riffs, beatdowns and gang vocals, unbelievable guitar work that merges an unmatched sense for melodies and forceful chord progressions
9. (3.55)- desperate, intense vocals, misanthropy pouring out of every single note
10. (3.30)- explosive, massive, uneasy tension
*11. (3.36)- strained/ardent vox, solid, honest, fierce
