Former Chimaira guitarist Matt Szlachta and Disgorge bassist Diego Soria are the latest additions to the Broken Hope lineup.
Former Chimaira drummer Austin D’Amond left the group back in September -- a day before frontman Mark Hunter announced the end of the group.
Chimaira have called it a career after 15 years.
Chimaira have undergone yet another mass exodus of band members.
Chimaira have scored yet another victory in their series of Death Matches. Having most recently defeated Gorguts, Chimaira now find themselves one win away from induction into the Death Match Hall of Fame. If Chimaira pulls off that fourth victory, their track 'No Mercy' will also earn a heavy rotation spot on Loudwire Metal Radio.
Chimaira may have experienced a massive overhaul since their last record was released in 2011. In fact, vocalist Mark Hunter is the only member of Chimaira who has been in the band for more than four years. Despite this, Hunter is confident in the current incarnation of Chimaira, which he shared with us during a recent interview.
Chimaira deserve some serious props for their latest Death Match win. Although Pantera legend Philip H. Anselmo has a nearly unparalleled legion of hardcore fans, he was unable to throw Chimaira off the path to victory. This marks Chimaira's second Death Match win, bringing the band half-way to becoming immortalized in our Death Match Hall of Fame.
Last week, we had two metal acts make their debut in the Loudwire Death Match. As always, one band emerged victorious, and that band was Chimaira. With one victory under their collective belt, Chimaira now are on their way to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but they've got a major threat to defuse first.
