Album Review

Shai Hulud are arguably one of the hardcore scene's best groups, yet that title seems a bit too hasty considering they have only released one full-length album. Hearts Once Nourished with Hope & Compassion is a fantastic album that succinctly wraps up what the late-'90s hardcore scene had become, and provides nine songs that are all worthy of becoming anthems for the modern generation. On the surface, Shai Hulud may appear to be just a batch of musicians overdosing on testosterone and anger, yet a glimpse at the lyrical content of this album will show something quite different. Blazing with intelligence, daring the listener to actually think, Shai Hulud prove that there is integrity amidst hardcore's abundance of intensity. Anyone half interested in finding out more about hardcore should get a copy of Hearts Once Nourished for a first lesson in "Hardcore 101." While Shai Hulud may not have pioneered the genre, they certainly deserve recognition for releasing one of the genre's most exquisite masterpieces.

The Best

Best hardcore record of all time, plus Chad Gilbert on vocals is awesome.

All I can say is that I loved the Original but always wished it sounded a bit better. The guys did the right thing by putting time into this and releasing this remastered version. If you are a Shai Hulud fan you probably already own this. And if you don't what planet are you from?


Formed: Pompano Beach, FL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

A positively themed metalcore band with some straight-edge leanings, Shai Hulud have maintained a strong name identity since their original formation in the mid-'90s, so despite lineup and label changes, they've created a coherent, labyrinthine 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...
