Shai Hulud
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 and Compassion is a fantastic album that succinctly wraps up what the late 90's hardcore scene has become, and provides nine songs that are all worthy of becoming anthems for the modern generation. Shai Hulud on the surface may appear to just be 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 be given Hearts Once Nourished... as their first lesson. While Shai Hulud may not have pioneered the genre, they certainly deserve recognition for releasing one of the genre's most exquisite masterpieces

A Plea For Purging have added another phenomenal album to their legacy with The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. A terrifyingly honest look at the age old wolf-in-sheep's-clothing theme, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is also an auditory thrill. Plea continue to edge out the competition in their unique metal genre niche by offering a genuinely original follow up album to 2009's Depravity with The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
