Editorial Reviews

It's fitting that this wrecking crew have named their third full length, Chimaira. That's because this Cleveland sextet have fine tuned and honed their style so deftly, that this album truly represents everything they were, everything they are, and everything they will be once this monster is unleashed on the heavy metal world. Features the single 'Nothing Remains'. Roadrunner. 2005.

Customer Reviews

Actually, almost every song on the album does this.

This time, Chimaira's new album "Chimaira" is an album that really cannot be compared to other bands because, well, it doesn't sound like any other band.
Edward S. Bell
The guitar riffs are amazingly interesting, the backround effects are well done, and the drumming is magnificent!

"...we prey on the weak and conquer!"-- So goes the bellowed chorus to track two, "Save Ourselves," from Chimaira's new, self-titled album. Chimaira ARE stronger...stronger than they've ever been.

Since they're signed to a major label (and their last album was their most popular), it would not be very surprising if Chimaira had record sales on their minds when they wrote their fourth album. They could have easily made a few MTV ready hit singles on here, or they could have been lazy and made this C.D. (which is simply entitled "Chimaira") just a rehash of a past one.

Fortunately, this Cleveland metalcore sextet decided to take a pretty big risk; "Chimaira" is an "epic" album. Chimaira's last album, 2003's "The Impossibility of Reason," was only a small step forward from their sophomore outing, "Pass Out Existence.". But "Chimaira" is a big leap ahead of both of those albums. It is more inspired, catchier, and has overall much better songwriting.

Even though I don't entirely agree that it is "epic" (which is what the band described it as), this album is definitely mature and complex. It has a new, heavier sound (in some places, it sounds like a completely new band). Some of the album's innovation is due to the songs' length (every song is at least five minutes) and this is also the first Chimaira album to feature a guitar solo on every track. Plus, even though the solos aren't really anything special, the musicianship is also improved. Matt DeVries and Rob Arnold's guitar work borders on greatness; their riffs are bigger, more professional, and all around a lot better. Add some quick, deft drum work and the final result is a bludgeoning album which is mighty catchy and even more contagious.

Mark's vocals are the only drawback.

It almost seems impossible for Chimaira to release a bad album. While some may argue that their earlier material ("Pass Out Of Existence", "This Present Darkness") was weak (especially compared to their later stuff), they were still very strong, though not strong enough to distinguish themselves from bands such as Slipknot and Fear Factory. When "The Impossibility of Reason" was released in 2003, it was obvious that they were not happy with the Slipknot/Fear Factory comparisons, creating an album that was much more of a modern take on old-school thrash metal and garnering them comparisons to bands like Pantera and Slayer.

This time, Chimaira's new album "Chimaira" is an album that really cannot be compared to other bands because, well, it doesn't sound like any other band. It is an album that is so unique that the sound can only be Chimaira's. "Chimaira" combines genres like thrash, metal, industrial, death metal, and metalcore into one CD, and the result is a beast of a record that is sure to give them even more attention they have been receiving.

As singer Mark Hunter has said about this record, it is not a "first-listen" record; it takes a few listens before you can fully grasp just what this album is about. This is not "The Impossibility Of Reason" Part Two, and I'm sure that that fact right there will probably turn off some Chimaira fans at first. It's really hard to praise this album upon first listen because there is just so much going on that you can't take in everything at once. At first, I'm sure some of the songs will sound the same. However, with each listen, and as you get more acquainted with all the songs, the CD get's progressively better.

Awsome! what a great job they did this time. I'am not your ordenary fan I'm 34yrs old and a deacon at my local church Mark and the rest of Chimaira put together a hard hitting song with out haveing to swearing every 2 words. If you grow up on punk and hard core you will not take out this cd. Just give it a chance you will like it.

First of all, Mr. Jack Burton summed up a lot of what i needed to say, so read his review.

Chimaira are back and better then they ever were. I've always been a fan of Chimaira, even back to Pass Out of Existance/This Present Darkness. I have their DVD, which is awesome, and now i have their new self-title CD. These guys are raw, straight-forward metal, and i wouldnt want it any other way. I'll admit the only possible flaw might be Mark's lack of diversity with the singing compared to past CD's, but he's still amazing and has written much better lyrics for this CD, which i think evens it out. This CD is much more raw and brutal then any of their other stuff, so if you're into full blown ass ripping metal, this is your gem! I love all the songs, the stand out ones for me are Lazarus, Save Ourselves and Inside The Horror. In the end it's all about opinion, but i have the highest respect and admiration for Chimaira. Buy this album.

The anticipation just continued to build as i waited and waited for the 3rd Chimaira release. The impossibility of reason quicky became my favourite album of all time, and after purchasing the bands DVD and hearing "i think Chimaira's next release will do to them what reign in blood did for Slayer". Automatically the standards were high. Finally it happened...the day i was able to buy this cd....and did it live up to my standards.....DAM FREAKING RIGHT IT DID! It surpassed what i thought it would be. Everything i love about music is incorparated into this disc. Kevin's brutal drumming, Rob's awe-inspiring solo's and Mark's powerful vocals are just 3 reasons to buy this album!

Nothing remains 10/10. First song heard off the disc, and still good

Save ourselves 10/10. 2nd best song on the cd and my personal follow up to Power Trip

Inside the Horror. 10/10 not even as unique as the rest, but still just makes the album better and better

Salvation. 11/10 Best track on the cd, best song of the year, GREATEST SONG EVER. I creamed myself big time when i first heard this!!! worth the price of the cd alone

Comatose. 10/10 love the "i.....i am inside" bit

Left for dead. 10/10 3rd best song on the cd..but GREATEST SONG INTRO EVER!! this is seriously like...the next smoke on the water as it comes to a world-known riff. Absolutly amazing. 3 sols in the song too

Everything you love. 10/10 yup...this song is EVERYTHING I LOVE about Chimaira

Bloodlust. 10/10 Outstanding song, amazing solo, killer chours...need i say more?

Pray for all. 10/10 most unique song outro ever!!

Lazarus. 10/10 longest track and was a personal fav for a while. Awesome closer

All in all, the entire album can be summed up in a few words

Brilliant

Amazing

Classic

BUY NOW!!!!!!!!

MUST HAVE!!!!
