Album Review

When they recorded their last album, Chimaira was a band that seemed up against the ropes, with most of its members either having left or being on the way out. Returning with a fresh new lineup, Mark Hunter (the band's only founding member) shows why these guys are one of the most resilient bands as they release their seventh album, Crown of Phantoms. If there's a feeling that courses throughout the record, it's one of reinvigoration, with Chimaira bouncing back from a rough couple of years with a rock-solid album of stomping metal. Though the band is named for the chimera of myth, they seem more like the hydra, always returning angrier no matter how many heads get cut off.

Already listened to this album twice all the way through, definitely MUST GET THIS ALBUM!! CHEERS CHIMAIRA!!
