Biography

Founded in 1998 by Mark Hunter and Jason Hager (who was replaced by Matt DeVries in 2001), CHIMAIRA were soon signed by Roadrunner Records after releasing their first EP "This Present Darkness" on their own. In 2001 their debut album "Pass Out Of Existence" was released. On this record CHIMARIA still had some slight Nu Metal influences in their sound, but they completely ...

Product Description

This Limited Deluxe Edition in 'Black Box' contains a nine-track bonus disc featuring live and unreleased tracks. Cleveland metallers Chimaira return with their brand new self-titled album, following their breakthrough The Impossibility Of Reason, which was met with huge critical acclaim. The band refused to write songs that fit any stylistic format, instead opting for a much more musically diverse approach, with guitar solos unlike anything on their previous records. The brain-damagingly heavy "Nothing Remains" (which Hunter revealed was written the day Dimebag Darrell was murdered) opens the album and the heaviness quotient doesn’t lessen. The album’s closer is the epic, dynamic mindscrambler called "Lazarus", a deeply personal track about a friend who committed suicide. With Chimaira, the band’s progression is evident; with a fresh and invigorated feel blowing away any preconceived notions, to produce a rollercoaster of modern and challenging metal.

From the first drum beat to the final chord, this album proves to the world that Chimaira's finest hour was not when they released their sophomore effort 'The Impossibility Of Reason' but right now. 'Chimaira' is simply one of the greatest metal albums ever released, with the insanely intense vocals of Mark Hunter, the crushing riffs of Matt DeVries, the blistering solos of Rob Arnold, the earth-shattering bass of Jim LaMarca, the intoxicating sampling of Chris Spicuzza and the cannon-like drumming from Kevin Talley all blending into one to smash you over the head with raw, unadulterated rage.
Nothing Remains is the perfect opener, with a heavy-as-lead riff and a solo that rivals early Metallica. Inside The Horror, heavy as a damn elephant once again, has got to be the headbangers favourite on the cd. Other stand out tracks have to be Comatose and Left For Dead, in which Mark Hunter vents his anger at a 'father' who chose money over family. Lazarus is a blinding closing track; the personal lyrics still echoing in my ears... 'Never had a chance to say goodbye.'
The bonus cd is awesome. The two tracks cut from the standard cd are brilliant, heavy as heavy can be with the same level of skill displayed in these as in the first cd's tracks. Why these weren't included, I don't know, but the live tracks on the bonus cd just kick you right in the face and say 'We're Chimaira, Come See Us Live And We'll Kick Your Ass.' Mark Hunter's instruction before 'The Dehumanizing Process (live)' makes you wanna get up and form your own Wall Of Death and go crazy when the riff blasts in...
Ahh, words cannot describe the absolutely immense power that this album has. Nothing Remains but for me to let out the biggest understatement of the year - this album is incredible.
BUY IT.

Chimaira have always been a good band seemingly refused entry to the higher realms of musical fame. Their 2001 release, 'Pass out of Existence' was a startling debut that was criminaly overlooked by the nu-metal loving masses of the time. The 2003 follow-up - 'The Impossibility of Reason' was a blast of sheer genius that was all but ignored, save for the hit single 'Down Again'.
There will be no ignoring this album...
Every inch the aural masterpiece, this disc showcases a band reaching their maturity. Earlier releases were exercises in raw power, but with this self-titled album Chimaira seem unafraid to display their technical prowess. The result is a staggering array of blistering guitar work, thunderous drumming and the kind of throat-shredding vocals that remind me why I love metal so much.
From the pounding 'Comatose' through to the epic 'Lazarus' this is an awesome album. Normally I like to pick a stand-out track to recommend a person listen to, but with this album I really can't choose. Just do yourself a favour, and buy this now.

I have shied away from this sort of metal for some time. The cover wasn't encouraging me to view it as thinking man's music either but i thought i'd give it a go.
The music on this record is awsome. It's not the technical ability as such (a lot of bands can play)it's the power of it and dynamic song construction. There's never any chance for the songs to go stale.
I was a bit put off by the singing, or rather screaming, at first but then gave it a few more listens and all of a sudden a) i could understand what they were screaming and b) it stopped sounding like screaming...the vocals just seemed right.
I remember laughing at Metallica when I first heard them. It was so heavy that it seemed comical. James Hetfields growl seemed ridiculous. Now it just seems normal. I expect Chimaira's vocal will seem normal soon enough, but one thing which seems to set them apart is that this guy really seems to mean it. It seems natural.
If you've not tried this sort of metal before it's definately worth a listen, but if you don't like it immediately, give it a chance, it will grow in time.
If you are already into this scene then this review won't be helpful as i'll be preaching to the converted.

Chimaira - "Chimaira"
'The Impossibility Of Reason', Chimairas previous album, was released just over 2 years ago to huge critical acclaim across the board. The record was, essentially, the chance for Chimaira to give the listener nearly 60 minutes of pure, unadulterated head-banging metal, whilst still managing to keep the essential style and lyrical concepts of their previous album 'Pass Out Of Existence'.
However, 'TIOR' had its problems; at many points it came across as too polished and there was no evidence of any major depth until you got about 5 tracks into the album. It's also clear that the songs were made to be catchy anthems, songs for the moshpits, but many older fans saw this as a step towards the commercialisation of the band. Luckily all of the minor problems or drawbacks of 'TIOR' have been dealt with, and their new self-titled record is, in short, a modern metal masterpiece, which fuses the melodic edge of In Flames with the hardcore brutality of bands such as Hatebreed.
It's clear from the start that, unlike much of their previous effort, the album is primarily based around the instrumentals, as opposed to the vocals. Nothing Remains is the lead single and the first teack on the album, which, despite a basic overlying riff, contains fantastic egyptian-esque guitar work (that seems to have been influenced by Nile) and superb drum work from the bands new sticksman, Kevin Talley. Then the mood abruptly switches and the relative gentle feel of the first track is replaced by what can only be described as an incredible and immensely crafted assault on the ears. The catchy hooks of previous efforts can still be heard, but the Chimaira boys have matured vastly over the past 2 years, and this is evident in other highlights such as 'Left For Dead' and the epic 'Lazurus'!
