Shai Hulud

When the metalcore sound was in its infancy, there were 4 bands that every band was copying and those bands were Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Poison the Well, and Shai Hulud. Shai Hulud – yes, they take their name from Dune-- fused punk, metal, hardcore, and thrash in a way that hadn't been done before, and the inspired, fevered lyrical delivery attracted rabid fans who had a cult-like worship for the band. Shai Hulud represented an ethos and an ethic: touring till they wore the tread off the tires, playing expressly for the kids, and having something of note to say in the lyrics. Shai Hulud were vital, essential and relevant, so much so that Alternative Press did an "oral history" feature on the band, an accolade reserved for bands that have carved out an undeniable place in the hearts of music fans.

Early Graves

EARLY GRAVES formed in the Bay Area in early 2008 and have since released two full lengths, both on Metal Blade Records' imprint, Iron Clad Recordings. The band's sound has been described as a mixture of old school Swedish death metal and American hardcore punk and have drawn comparisons to Napalm Death, Carcass, Tragedy and Testament among other.
