A metal band, part of the new wave of american heavy metal. Began as a Numetal band and Matured into my favourite band. Mark Hunter, Matt DeVries, Rob Arnold, Jim LaMarca, Andols Herrick and Chris Spiccuza are the band members, Mark is the vox, Matt and rob share the lead axe duties, jim rips it on the bass and andols f**king pounding on them drums. Chris Spicuzza is the samples/effects guy, adds a layer onto the music, makes Chimaira special.

"The Impossibility of Reason"

Get the Chimaira mug.
1) Greek Mythology- A fire-breathing she-monster usually represented as a composite of a lion, goat, and serpent.
2) An imaginary monster made up of grotesquely disparate parts.
3) Relativly new hardcore metal band with screaming, good instrumentals, and amazing lyrics.
1&2) Self explanatory.
3) See Power Trip or Pure Hatred off of The Impossibility of Reason

A former slipknot-like mallcore/nu-metal band (pass out of existence) who then went metalcore on the next album (impossibility of reason.) and currently on their self-titled (current album) are groove thrash.
Dude, didn't these guys used to say korn and slipknot were their influences? Now they are saying overkill and slayer are their influences?
