CHIMAIRA Post Teaser Of Every Song On Record
Chimaira's Crown of Phantoms has a pretty sweet name to live up to. Fortunately, it's sounding like they'll surpass it by a long shot with their newest trailer.
There are little hints of Emil shred in here, which makes me happy. I've never really been much of a fan of these guys, but between the new single (kinda) that we posted some time ago and this, I'm way more interested than I thought I'd be. There seems to be some really good song writing and vocals going on, but more importantly there's lots of sweet ass guitar stuff. Which is what really matters in the end. Emil Werstler needs to be heard. A lot. Vocalist Mark Hunter said about the record:
When I started this band I had a desire to make extremely heavy, eclectic metal. Nothing has changed in that regard. I wanted to merge all the styles I loved into a hybrid of sounds. Having the chance to reinvent the group gave me the opportunity to work with unbelievable players and take the essence of Chimaira to uncharted territory. Assembling the right team was essential to creating what I feel is some of the craziest and most passionate music I've had the pleasure to be a part of. The past defines us while the present refines us.
Crown of Phantoms comes out July 30th.
