Last week we posted an update on the site from Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter talking about the band’s upcoming DVD titled The Dehumanizing Process. Since that time, the band played dates in Japan (for the first time), are now playing in Australia (for the first time), the DVD has been given a new release date (NOT the first time we have changed release dates), and we have a press release on the DVD. The new release date for the DVD is now 25/10 (yes, was actually moved UP a week), and the press release (well written and informative) is as follows: CHIMAIRA TO RELEASE THE DEHUMANIZING PROCESS DVD On October 25th Chimaira will release The Dehumanizing Process DVD, a 90 minute, behind-the-scenes documentary that follows the band from writing and recording their latest album The Impossibility of Reason in 2003, through their stint on the Road Rage tour with labelmates, Machine Head and Trivium this past August. In addition to the documentary, the DVD includes almost an hour of performance footage captured live around the world. Finally, as an added bonus, the package will include the This Presents Darkness EP, the EP the band released on their own and that initially brought them to the attention of Roadrunner Records. “It’s been a tremendous ride so far,” says vocalist Mark Hunter, “and I feel fortunate enough to be able to show our fans what it’s like to actually be in this group because we feel they are the 7th member and we couldn’t have done any of this without them.” When Chimaira released their sophomore effort for Roadrunner Records, The Impossibility of Reason, in May of 2003, it marked both the end of a journey and the beginning of a new one. Over the past year and a half, the band has toured with some of the biggest names in hard rock and metal (Slipknot, Slayer, Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Fear Factory), played Ozzfest, shot three videos (one of which ended in a fiery blaze), gone through three drummers, fought illness, English thugs and one another, to come out on top. The Dehumanizing Process DVD, directed by Todd Bell, is this period of time caught on tape. It is an hour-and-a-half documentary of a band trying to hold onto their sanity and dream. Also included in this package is the This Present Darkness EP. Released independently before they were signed, this updated version has previously unavailable bonus tracks and new liner notes written by lead singer, Mark Hunter. Out of Cleveland, OH, Chimaira formed in 1998 and has since released an EP and two albums, the This Present Darkness EP (1999), Pass Out of Existence (2001) and The Impossibility of Reason (2003).
