Chimaira, which split with Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries, has now issued the following announcement about recruiting new members:

"We are proud to announce the addition of Matt Szlachta and Jeremy Creamer to Chimaira.

"The plan was to build an undeniable string section and we have done just that. Jeremy will be pounding on the bass, and Matt shredding alongside Emil on guitar.

"As a way to say hello to the Chimaira fans, Jeremy recently remixed a couple of tracks from The Age Of Hell.

"Go here and download the FREE EP and listen to the Allinaline mixes. (We’d also like to thank Dubba Jonny for remixing Year Of The Snake!)

"CCXII marks the end of an era, but it’s also the start of a new chapter. We look forward to 2012. Thank you all for your overwhelming, and continuous support."

im sorry but i have been a fan since day one........i can honestly say........how does this "singer" talk these guys into this sh** year after year. somebody has to see the writing on the wall. this guy thinks a run-on sentence is a rhyming scheme. its worse as the albums keep coming. makes me sad. impossibility was gold.

I look forward to the next album, but just hope they stay sounding like chimaira. Mark didn't say who the new drummer is? Chimaira is now almost the band daath with Mark Hunter on growl duty.

I just feel like they're gonna be a rip off of their own band. Almost like Metallica. They'll play the old songs, but the new songs won't be "Chimaira." They'll turn into their own tribute band lol. I really hope that doesn't happen though. Just a worse case scenario in my own head.
