Life In Lincolnshire, pt 3
Posted on February 12, 2008A week ago today, the mixing of Chimaira's upcoming The Impossibility Of Reason commenced. The brain trust behind the mixing effort is Colin Richardson, along with band members Mark (vocals), Rob (guitar), and Jim (bass). The setting, Lincolnshire. The lastest word from Mark - is as follows:
"Yo amigos. Well, it's midnight back in Clevo, and 5am for us, still can't get adjusted to the new time zone. Figured I would give you an update on what we have been up to.
Our Valentine's Day was spent by mixing a song called "Crawl". This is definitely the song that will turn some heads. It is a slow dark stonerish death metalish but heavy melodic song. Confused yet? Let's just say you won't believe that you're listening to Chimaira, but it's the type of song you won't be able to stop listening to.
Vocally, I am most proud of this song because I use voices that I never knew I had in me. This was the last song we wrote for the record, and we wrote it in the studio on a day filled with a lot of booze. Perhaps the song sounds a bit more like we were on some serious drugs, but hey you'll love it, I promise.
After we put the finishing touches on "Crawl" in the morning (a couple hours for me) we will start a nice little love ballad we like to call "Pure
Hatred". I think we are starting to develop a bit of cabin fever from being locked up in the studio so much - I woke up this morning to what sounded like World War III and it was Jim and Rob screaming at each other over an intense game of checkers...hahah. Whatever, will hit you all up in a day or two."
