Life In The World Of Chimaira
Posted on February 12, 2008The latest from Chimaira camp? Words exchanged with vocalist Mark Hunter grace us with the following update:
"All in all, life is good in the world of Chimaira," Mark begins. "We FINALLY decided on a mixer for this record - we will be working with producer/mixing legend Colin Richardson. He has done some great records, and when you hear the live Machine Head CD that he just mixed, you will understand that this was an EASY choice for us." The band received Colin's test mix today, and according to Mark, "it immediately put a huge smile on our faces. We knew this was our guy."
So what now? Rob (guitar), Jim (bass), and Mark will be flying over here to the UK to assist Colin in one of the final stages of the recording process - mixing...to bring the vision (more accurately, sound) of The Impossibility Of Reason home. The boys will be rocking out to the new songs and mixing...
"We are really proud of the new record, and can't wait for you all to get the chance to experience what we are right now," enthuses Mark. "Now we just need to bust ass, put the final touches on everything and get the fuck back out on the road!"
All in all, life is good in the world of Chimaira.
Oh, and Mark has one final stop for you to hit amongst your internet travels: Sick of what the metal scene has become lately, Mark highly recommends you all watch the short film titled 'Heavy Metal Parking Lot - 1986' (click on that link to go to the page where your feature presentation awaits). See what happened when Judas Priest rolled into town on May 5, 1986. Mark leaves us with the following: "Get back into the swing of things. Grow your hair, come to concerts plastered, play air guitar, sport a cool mustache, and mosh in the fucking parking lots!!!"
