Massive A/V Roundup: New music from ROB ZOMBIE, SIX FEET UNDER, IRON REAGAN, ANTHRAX Covering AC/DC and more
It's Monday… gross. Luckily, the new week brings new tunes from Rob Zombie, Six Feet Under, Iron Reagan and Shai Hulud, as well as covers of AC/DC and Botch songs, and a studio update from White Wizzard. (more…)
Shai Hulud is undeniably one of the most important bands of the last 15 years. On the front lines of metallic-hardcore, they had a unique ability to pour vast oceans of anger, sadness, and disillusionment into 3-minute blasts of riffs and screaming aggression. And while their reputation will never be in doubt, the style they helped pioneer has experienced somewhat of a decline. Things in the world of extreme music move fast, and if you consider the years since Shai Hulud's last album in 2008, you could fill books with the amount of bands and styles that have seen their own peaks and valleys.
With the proliferation of endless "Verb-the-Noun" bands circa 2007-2011 that took elements of the style, packaged it, and basically beat it to death, it's hard to imagine there being an appetite for anything reminiscent of "melodic-hardcore" in 2013. More to the point, a lot of the original innovators have walked away, with From Autumn to Ashes and The Bled both broken up and Poison the Well on an ambiguous and indefinite hiatus. So the question with Reach Beyond the Sun is, can Shai Hulud reach beyond the inevitable nostalgia for the mid-2000's and create a record that is both true to their identity and that prevents them from becoming the extreme-music equivalent of "Toto playing the County Fair"?

Well the last two days have been kind of rough for the site. Due to some server upgrades by our host, our site was taken down for a good portion of the day yesterday, and we may have missed out on some new music. As a result, here's a compilation of all the new tracks that were released yesterday and today, including new ones from Six Feet Under, Shai Hulud, KEN Mode, Terror and The Acacia Strain (more…)

Today we get our first taste of new music, and it tastes good… (more…)
After what seems like years of waiting and ages worth of silence, Shai Hulud are finally back and about to release a new album in 2013. Information is all-of-a-sudden pouring out from the Metal Blade camp as we now know the new album will be called Reach Beyond The Sun and it will be scheduled for a February 19th release date. From what Metal Injection is being told, brand new full length tracks as well as pre-orders will be available on December 10th but if you can't wait that long we have a teaser video for you right after the jump (more…)
A loaded A/V roundup today. We got a new trailer for Nergal's autobiography, a Gojira lyric video, new music from Early Graves and Ensiferum and Shai Hulud live footage with Chad Gilbert. Let's begin:
Chad Gilbert made a lot of money with his pop-punk band New Found Glory, (hey olds, their big hit is 10 years old…wow). He managed to keep his cred by fronting straight-edge hardcore band Shai Hulud for a while, until contractual obligations from New Found Glory's major label contract forced him to resign from the band. Guess what? NFG aren't on a major anymore allowing Chad to resume vocal duties. Gilbert will be screaming on the band's new album and will be joining the band on stage at Revelation Records 25th Anniversary show in New York City on October 13th. Here is the full statement from Shai Hulud's Matt Fox: (more…)
