Chimaira, The New Wave Of American Heavy Metal? One listen of their upcoming album and surely you'll agree (psst, you can listen to the whole thing HERE). Here's another about, Chimaira, The New Ambassadors of Roadrunner Records? Read below, and apparently this one is true too. Chimaira is currently on the road with Lamb Of God...but that's not the only band they're with...ahh, let's count the ways: Last night (5/05) the band was in Portland. What was the Portland situation? Bear-ca-bobs with 36 Crazyfists. Chimaira had a hang last night in Portland with the guys from 36 Crazyfists (currently working on pre-production of their new album). As for the 'bear-ca-bobs,' that would be a shish-ca-bob made by 36 CF bassist Mick Whitney (he is affectionately called 'bear'). Go back in time three days to L.A. (5/02), and Chimaira was keeping company with Dino from Fear Factory, Meegs from Coal Chamber, and the boys from Spineshank. Fast forward two days to this past Sunday (5/04), and it was a night with Machine Head's Robert Flynn and Dave McClain. Furthermore, this past Thursday (5/01) in Pomona, it was a night with Slayer's Mr. Kerry King. All right, so Kerry and Slayer are not on Roadrunner Records, but you see where we are going with this... The Five Degrees Of Roadrunner, indeed.
