After finishing an extremely successful trip of Europe in support of Propagandhi, followed by a headlining tour, SHAI HULUD have actually returned to the states and are preparing for their next set of confirmed programs.

For the complete listing, see below, or check out facebook.com/shaihulud.
SHAI HULUD’s Matt Fox reviews 2013: “2013 has been a banner year for Shai Hulud, and it’s not even summer yet. Seeing the launch of “Reach Beyond The Sun,” touring Australia as a part of the Soundwave Festival (headlined by Metallica ? ? practically the reason we play heavy songs) and having just returned from Europe after a trip with among our favorite bands, Propagandhi, has made this year so far both a blur and a dream, or one and the same relying on how well you remember your dreams, if you can remember them at all. 2013 is one dream we won’t soon forget, etched further into our memory receptors ? ? if there are such things ? ? with the dates we confirmed with Earth Crisis, a substantial and direct influence on the development and presence of Shai Hulud. This is a special year for us, and we’re grateful not just to share it with those who find something in our music that contacts them, but also with numerous of the bands whose songs has spoken, and still talks to us.”
In various other news, French metal singer Rachel Aspe, understood throughout the internet for her look on France’s Got Skill, has actually uploaded a vocal cover of SHAI HULUD’s “Reach Past the Sun.” The track can be heard on Aspe’s youtube network ? ? youtube.com/rachelaspemetal. Fans can also see Rachel Aspe live as the new vocalist of French Metal band Eths. For more info, check out facebook.com/EthsPage.

? Sweden’s ELDKRAFT have actually introduced a new track from their launching cd, Shaman, specifically by means of LastRit. es! The website, which was previously referred to as metalreview.com, is streaming Patterns now BELOW.
Toxin Tongue founder/PRIMORDIAL vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga on his latest signing: “I was turned on to Eldkraft by Mortuus from Marduk and instantaneously acknowledged even in its raw demo type, below was something authentic, and it had the prospective to be an enormous pagan metal cd. Not the animation things however the real offer, immersed in old shamanism and traditions with the spirit of Bathory someplace deep in its bones & hellip; Eldkraft!”
ELDKRAFT is a musical constellation whose primary foundation rests on epic metal while drawing experimental impacts from ancestral musical traditions of the North and spiritual assistance of its hermetic crafts. Shaman, the debut cd, is a psychedelic journey stared upon through modern elements, circumnavigating journeys of understanding, growth and the euphoria of the soul.
2011 was the year when J. Sandin and H. Karlsson decided to start a different path, having reached the end of the line with previous tasks and bands. After hearing demo recordings, Metal Blade saw the potential of ELDKRAFT and revealed instant interest.
With a record offer firmly in place, ELDKRAFT immortalized 10 tunes for their debut cd in their own studio Upsurge, while N. Fjellström recorded the drums in studio Necromorbus. Blending and understanding was completed under the watchful eye of Magnus Devo Andersson of Endarker Studio Sweden.
ELDKRAFT’s debut cd, Shaman, will be launched the 24th / 27th of May, 2013 in Europe and on May 28th in North America via Metal Cutter Records.
