For Shai Hulud's fourth full-length, Reach Beyond the Sun, the seminal hardcore band tapped former vocalist Chad Gilbert—who'd been in the band as a teenager before going on to found New Found Glory—to mark a return of sorts to their gruff roots. The Poughkeepsie, New York-by-way-of-Pompano Beach, Florida, group came to be during a time of transition for hardcore, as bassist/songwriter Matt Fox toed the line between a more melodic sonic rocket and the gang-vocal posi-core of his hXc past. Beginning with 2003's That Within Blood Ill-Tempered, the band ushered in an impressively pissed-off hybrid that would—whether they wanted to or not—influence a whole legion of musicians in what was later dubbed metalcore. Don't blame the watery depths of that subgenre on Shai Hulud, though. Their imprint on the underground scene remains solid. RYAN J. PRADO
