chimaira resurrection

Quite a few bands seem to be waking up on the wrong side of the bed nowadays more than ever before, and Chimaira appear to be a group of fed-up chaps, as heard throughout their dripping with angst release, Resurrection. Doesn’t seem like a huge aspect of the album, but I love it when bands do that. I do believe there is hope for modern American metal, and its name is Chimaira. The music is more fluid if chunky riffs can be called that. As the album starts we are immediately introduced to the album’s title-track as well as only single.

That represents one extreme of quality on resurrectiom, the high end. The first three songs, resurrdction well as the tremolo-heavy “No Cbimaira to Live” are as fast-paced and outright destructive as the material on Resurrection gets.

Their guitar lines are smoother and far superior to their earlier works, as with their production on this album, which can be credited to Jason Suecof Trivium, God Forbid. Overall, its a very empowering album that is meant to be dark but supportive in its creation and consumption. Retrieved September 1, From their release The Impossibility of Reason to their self-titled album inthe band made a huge jump, evolving into a more technical outfit than an angst ridden thrash band, however seemed to be too large of a jump for their own good.

Look at “End it all” for instance, cool riffs, bad lyrics, and unnecessary spoken sections. This all means that about half the tracks are interchangable despite sounding distinct resurrectjon one another, because there is nothing extremely obvious to come between ‘Black Heart’ and ‘End It All’, or ‘Worthless’ and ‘No Reason To Live’.

Occasionally, you get something with more kick and speed than normal, but this is lumbering music that relies on the groove and often plenty of chugging and downtuned, meaty guitar tones in order to get a song going. What seems to have happened now is resurfection Chimaira have left rather a hole in that field, since they always played faster, more technically, and with less metalcore cliche than their contemporaries, plus their evolution was more interesting and varied than many – myself included – gave them credit for.


Another strong point for the band is the drumming, which is pretty good thrash drumming when the tempo is up, and is thoroughly groovy when the band decides to slow down and crush.

The problem is that everyone is mostly passable, rather than good, and even fhimaira ever-present Mark Hunter doesn’t possess enough different styles to keep me interested for too long. As such, we don’t end up with lots of great riffs on this album, but the band rely rresurrection their energy, subtle changes, and Mark Hunter’s vocal perfomance to pull through.

CD Review: Chimaira – Resurrection

For most of their career, they were lumped in with either nu metal somewhat unfairly, though that phase was short-lived or the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, chimaita is akin to saying that they have metalcore tendencies, a melodeath fetish, and a vocalist who could broaden his range. Personally, I think two things got them back on track Everything feels as though it is in its proper place with no real excess, and this feels great!

You get a heavy riff with not much in the way of energy, and then you just end up hearing the same stuff for five minutes.

But of course to the people who like him, like myself, this means that they have to listen to more of the bands music, which isn’t exactly perfect. You could argue that rwsurrection primal, simplistic aggression and taking all eloquence and tact out of the equation is sort of the point, but the very adolescent feel to the writing and performance is impossible for me to take seriously coming from a grown man.

With metal progressing and in some ways regressing back to the days of yore, when a riff could stand for itself with its intricacy and innate brutality, Chimaira has come back to make their mark in the metal scene with their latest attempt Resurrection. Hunter even tries out some different styles to stretch out his signature growl, showing off his vocal chops.

These are all solid songs, but they have precisely zero remarkable features. Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R. This is above all an emotionally brutal album that really takes you on a rollercoaster ride through the dark side of the human psyche.

They don’t sound too great, and don’t have any use to the song anyway. As a whole, this album is a must get for Rresurrection fans, or even fans of thrash. Songs like “Worthless” aren’t so intelligent in the lyrical field but it gives the album some good variety in how the listener respondes to songs.

However, I think having all those bad times was a blessing in disguise for Chimaira, resurrrction they have now produced their best album yet.

Both guitarists in Chimaira have a lot of talent on the fretwork and for the first time Chimaira uses them to their full ability. The common formula for any Chimaira song is to develop a single furious riff and use it to string parts of the song together, while bringing other riffs into play and hoping that their quality can support a verse or alter the dynamic of the song.

Some shredding, atonal lead guitar reminiscent of Slayer shows up as well, as do backing growls and tons of fast double bass. This time out the band have opted for chiaira thicker and altogether rawer sound. Jazz Latin New Age. Resurrection from the near-death experience they were facing after their self-titled.

They even feature an instrumental part in the middle of the song that can keep up with some of the classics in the industry. The music is more fluid if chunky riffs can be called that.
