CHIMAIRA

chimairacontent

Chimaira is a groove metal band from Cleveland, Ohio that formed in 1998. The band started off as a nu-metal project, but evolved into a mixture of groove, thrash, and metalcore; however, some death metal elements were displayed on the band’s third album, Chimaira.

Chimaira began as a collaboration between vocalist Mark Hunter and guitarist Jason Hager. The band released a successful EP, This Present Darkness, and was signed to Roadrunner Records. Their debut album, Pass Out Of Existence, was similar-sounding to a lot of the mainstream metal bands of the time. With their sophomore album, The Impossibility of Reason, Chimaira carved a more unique path and incorporated faster melodies and greater lead guitar presence.

Drummer Andols Herrick left after the release of the sophomore album, and death metal drumming extraordinaire Kevin Talley took his place. With a new drummer came a heavier, more relentless approach on Chimaira. The critics and fans reacted positively, but the band was suffering from internal conflicts that almost drove the members apart.
