Chimaira is currently in the midst of a nice Summer's tour with Ill Nino and Factory 81. Tonight (08/03) they take on the Cattleguard Pavillion in Lubbock, TX. As this tour has been extended to hit the US well outside of the Midwest, check out Chimaira's TOUR DATES for full details... Anyway, back to the real reason for this piece - to learn you a bit more about Chimaira...the good folks over at have "slaved over a hot stove for hours upon hours to bring you this feature" - Chimaira is band of the month on their site for August 2001. If you don't like it, as tells, "then fuck you"!!! Actually, it is a great piece, well worth the time. Check it out HERE.
