They are one of the most influential hardcore bands of all time. Long before the term metalcore was invented, SHAI HULUD had already set the blueprint and successfully applied it. Their 1997 debut EP “A Profound Hatred Of Man” is one of the biggest classics of the whole hardcore scene. In 2008 they are back after a five-year hiatus, but don’t call this a comeback. It’s an emergence from a hibernation that included plenty of activity; tours outside of the USA, line-up changes, side projects and the writing of new songs.
“Misanthropy Pure” more than lives up to its title, serving as a release for all those who hate our society and the stupidity of the current generation. SHAI HULUD is thinking man’s music, tackling subjects that dare to question everything and everyone.
