Customer Reviews

By far their best work yet.
Chad T. Dressler
I think this is one of those albums that will grow on you the more you listen to it, so I recommend it for any fan of groove metal or just metal in general.

The riffs on here are absolutely heavy and devastating, and Emil Werstler's solos are just fantastic and very technically sounding too.

I've been a big fan of Chimaira for 10 years now ever since I was 19 years old when I first listened to both their 2001 debut release "Pass Out of Existence" and their breakthrough sophomore release from 2003 "The Impossibility of Reason" back in 2003, and since then I would get every forthcoming album of theirs in the years to come afterwards. I've also have had the pleasure of seeing them live at the Oxford Theatre down in Eau Claire back in late September, and they just absolutely killed it live onstage. I mean they were absolutely amazing, it was truly an amazing experience. Now, for Chimaira's seventh full length release, 2013's "Crown of Phantoms", we see frontman Mark Hunter being joined by an all new lineup consisting of Daath members Emil Werstler (lead guitar), Jeremy Creamer (bass), Sean Zatorsky (keyboards and electronics), ex-Dirge Within rhythm guitarist Matt Szlachta, and ex-Bleed The Sky drummer Austin D'Amond, and together this new lineup has managed to bust out what is in my opinion, the best Chimaira album since 2007's "Resurrection" by far. While "Crown of Phantoms" showcases a fresh sound here, but it still maintains the attitude that Chimaira have so well been known for throughout the years. The music on this album is just devastatingly brutal and heavy, and each song is just downright addicting and memorable. Mark Hunter proves that he still knows how to bring it as he powers his way throughout with his powerful, aggressive growls and screams as always. The riffs on here are absolutely heavy and devastating, and Emil Werstler's solos are just fantastic and very technically sounding too.Read more ›

Okay, I'll make this short and sweet. This record CRUSHES from top to bottom relative to the rest of their catalog. I first noticed possible apathy in the group on The Infection - a good record but very inconsistent. This record truly is killer; there's not a bad song and it's very cohesive. Also, it's one of the very few records I can think of where I wish there were more songs on it and I
want to replay it when it's over.. I wish to hell I had contributed so I'd have the bonus tracks, goddamnit! I highly recommend this record.

Allow me to start off by stating the title of the review is not a reference to their 2007 album Resurrection, but is directed towards the lineup changes that have occurred over the past few years. The first time Chimaira had a resurrection was when they welcomed drummer Andols Herrick back into the band and signed a new record deal with Ferret. This one: an entirely new lineup with frontman Mark Hunter being joined by Dååth members Sean Zatorsky (keyboards & backing vocals), Emil Werstler (lead guitar), Jeremy Creamer (bass), former Dirge Within guitarist Matt Szlachta (rhythm guitar) and Bleed The Sky drummer Austin D'Amond (drums). Lots of fans felt that with Andols, Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries being absent, it meant the end. Crown Of Phantoms clearly kills that theory as it is one of the strongest albums in Chimaira's discography. While there is a fresh sound on this album, it still has that attitude that Chimaira is known for.

For the new lineup. Chimaira albums have been mediocre at best since Impossibility in 2003. The self titled album Chimaira in 2005 was the beginning of the downhill slippery slope with about half the album worthy of replay. Sure the albums after occasionally squeezed in a good track or two but nothing on par with Impossibility.

Crown of Phantoms has revitalized the bands name with something special, an album that can be replayed and enjoyed over and over as a whole. There is no more skipping tracks on this album.

I've read where the new guitar line up is sub-par compared to Arnold and DeVries and I say don't listen to that drivel. These aren't the most complex riffs or the best guitarist duo, but they are so good at what they do with the new sound they bring to Chimaira. It's so refreshing and worth every penny.

I sampled the album from tube and found myself replaying track after track and decided this album is worth the purchase and it just gets better with each replay.

This is one of those albums where maybe one or two tracks really stand out but the others keep this album in your player for a long time, hopefully until the next album of the same caliber. There are some really nice riffs throughout each track and you'll find yourself listening to each track over and over.

If I have to sell this album i'll start with Plastic Wonderland. If this song doesn't sell you then nothing will. As I mentioned the album is a strong effort and laced with rewarding riffs and those moments where you want to turn it up louder. Love Soaked Death, I Despise, Spineless, Kings of the Shadow World are probably my favorites in order.
