5.0 out of 5 stars Words Cannot Describe, 13 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Chimaira [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
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.
