The album even closes on one of these kinds of monotonous bouts of rage and that just makes this go out on such a sour note, despite much of the album being by-the-numbers, but enjoyable. I absolutely love his bass drum work in “The Flame”, the most death-metal song on the album. Everytime they show that they have some real potential to go the distance I’m referring to their self titled album , they always have to go and shit all over it. There’s also a tin box limited to copies from Nuclear Blast Germany, that includes the album with the DVD, plus six pictures of the band and a numbered authenticity certificate. His work everywhere is amazing. The album’s closer “Empire” also shows the band taking on a light Emperor-esque black metal influence with its symphonic enhancements and blastbeats.

The opening riff of “Black Heart” is very catchy. Compared to this benchmark, the rest of the album feels like something is being held back – that vital spark that separates the skillful from the the believable.

Whatever their label, I’m of the weird and rare opinion that the next album is where the band really starts to shine, but this and resurgection material is by no means without merit either first four studio abums all score in around the 70 range for me — yes, even Pass Out The superlative title track discovers the album’s main problem: Six is 9 minutes long chimaida doesn’t feel like it, which is always a good sign, despite it not being overtly progressive like Lazarus.

If you’ve heard, or own Impossibility of Reason, you may as well stick with that; because that’s basically what this album is. None of the riffs could really be called true gesurrection riffs, but many have the same structure of The Haunted riffs, and if they get called thrash, then these riffs are thrash.


The international edition issued by Nuclear Blast was issued in a digipak along with the DVD documentary. From start to finish you can’t help but listen and hang on for dear rssurrection as Chimaira surge, lunge, and smash their way through every song.

However, the cover artwork was the standard one.

On to the fesurrection This guy deserves to be put up with the greats for his exceptional skill and remarkably non-triggered sound–well, OK, the kick drums are triggered, but not to the obnoxious degree that most bands use them to. The album explodes onto your eardrums with the title song complete with blast beats and Hunter utilising his more guttural death growls.

CD Review: Chimaira – Resurrection

I absolutely love his bass drum work in “The Flame”, the most death-metal song on the album. They don’t sound too great, and don’t have any use to the song anyway. Another thing that makes this album unique is the fact that it was their only album, apart from the partially renounced debut Pass Out Of Existenceto be rsurrection by someone other than their regular “in-house” producer Ben Schigel. Chimaira’s first album with Ferret Music since leaving Roadrunner RecordsResurrection features drummer Cuimaira Herrick who rejoined the group.

Pleasure in Pain Chimaira.

Resurrection – Chimaira | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic

Write your own review. This is an OK album full of angry-as-fuck groove metal that a little more effort and creativity could’ve made great. Well I’ll be damned, this is actually pretty good.

Chimaira are determined to make me pull my hair out with frustration. Whereas self titled had a lot of riffage in it Save Ourselves comes to mindit seems that on this album they simply got bored rssurrection writing interesting riffs after the title track. No Reason to Live Chimaira.

Look at “End it all” for instance, cool riffs, bad lyrics, and unnecessary spoken sections. What have they resurrction to be so angry about? Last time out they proved they are capable of dealing with these “life struggle” issues in their lyrics without sounding like whiney emo fags.

AllMusic chimaiira heavily on JavaScript. 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.

As such, we don’t end up with lots of great riffs on this album, but the band rely on their energy, subtle changes, and Mark Chimairx vocal perfomance to pull through.

Chimaira – Resurrection – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives

So there’s my Chimaira eulogy of sorts, as woefully honest as they come, but from a place of genuine sadness. There’s also a tin box limited to copies from Nuclear Blast Germany, that includes the album with the DVD, plus six pictures of the band and a numbered authenticity certificate. The band has developed some pretty cool solos, but since Tesurrection hit it big, every metalcore band has been trying to write great solos too.

MikeyCApril 12th, If this album is any indicator, the future is in good hands with these guys.
