Chimaira Bring ‘Age of Hell’ to New York
Chimaira returns to New York City as a headliner after a long wait for diehard fans for the Age of Hell Tour. This time they brought an eclectic group of bands as support of an epic night of metal at B.B. King’s in Times Square last night (Nov. 3).
Frontman Mark Hunter and the gang performed an amazing set. The vigor and stage performance of the band never eased up and neither did the energy of their fans. They performed a wide variety of tracks such as ‘Severed,’ ‘Power Trip,’ ‘Pure Hatred,’ ’Destroy and Dominate,’ as well as a new song ‘Year of the Snake’ among many more.
Not to mention after almost every song they high-fived and fist bumped fans, and their chemistry onstage could not be more stimulating. Chimaira continue to thrill North American fans as their journey on the road in support of their latest album ‘The Age of Hell’ goes on until the end of this year.
California-based band Impending Doom took the stage and performed an explosive set which definitely left a dent in the floor of B.B. King’s. Frontman Brook Reeves made sure he got up close and personal with fans by letting them sing songs and giving out an abundance of hugs.
Revocation drummer Phil Dubois not only played his band’s set but also played Impending Doom’s set as he filled in for their stickman who unfortunately broke his hand. The Boston band definitely gained some fresh New York fans after their forceful set.
New York natives of the band No Remission opened up the show with a notable half hour set which made their fellow East Coasters proud.
Chimaira continues to destroy ear drums as their U.S. leg of The Age of Hell Tour wraps up on Dec. 30 in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. For a full list of dates, go here.
