Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion displays some of the most honest and darkest thoughts of SHAI HULUD’s career. From the opening guitar chord of “Solely Concentrating On The Negative Aspects Of Life,” it only gets uglier and more real with each track. Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion also introduced music technicality to the hardcore scene that SHAI HULUD is known for; surprises around every note. Now re-mastered and re-issued with new artwork, Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion reveals its true self. As with the re-issue of A Profound Hatred Of Man, the new artwork was created by Dave Quiggle (SHAI HULUD’s A Comprehensive Retrospective, NO INNOCENT VICTIM, EVERGREEN TERRACE), and interlocks the covers of both albums. Re-mastering was once again done by Zeuss HATEBREED, THROWDOWN, SHADOWS FALL) and Alan Douches (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MISFITS, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) giving Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion the sound it always deserved. Following similar lyrical content as A Profound Hatred Of Man, SHAI HULUD gives an outlet to those who are disgusted with everyday life; they are reassured that they are not the only ones who share this feeling. This re-issue still provides that outlet but packs a new punch that will blow out your speakers.
