This DVD of Chimaira is a must have for any die-hard CHIMAIRA fans, lots of cool stuff, RR must be impressed with this, coz i am, definetly, but it's a real shame that Andols wanted to leave the band, Chimaira have GONE through 3 drummers, fought illness, and english thugs, their album "The Impossibility of Reason" is fantastic and dare we say "classic" metal album. My opinion on the album is it's simply the best genre-defining album CHIMAIRA have released. Their next album i'm definetly getting.
Chimaira's vocalist Mark Hunter has written liner notes for the bonus EP "This Present Darkness" which almost makes the EP come complete, and also has 2 bonus tracks "Gag" and "Refuse To See", those are not included on the original release. The EP was originally on EAST COAST EMPIRE RECORDS but now it's been coveted by RR, the EP actually got the band signed to RR coz it was heavy and unrelenting. The title track and "Divination," "Lend A Hand" are great unheard songs to headbang to. No complaints about this, SUPERB!
The DVD on the other hand is brilliant, it's about a band trying to keep their sanity and a dream, it also captures the band recording "The Impossibility..." which is interesting, it has all the videos, brilliant, a show recorded live in Holland as part a of a ROADRAGE TOUR in 2003, it has band commentary and subtitles, too good!
Buy this DVD NOW! IT'S SOO GREAT FOR ALL US RR FANS, WELL WORTH THE CASH, £££..
