A massive round of applause is due for Colorado thrashers Havok, as they won their fourth consecutive match and therefore earned a spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame along with a heavy rotation spot on Loudwire Metal Radio. Congrats to a truly awesome new-school thrash band. Now that Havok's 'Give Me Liberty… or Give Me Death' is immortal, you know what that means -- two new bands now enter the Death Match!
Forward-thinking metal band Chimaira are apparently slowly morphing into proggy death metal band Daath -- which isn't a bad thing, as evidenced by Chimaira's excellent 2011 album 'The Age of Hell,' which featured Daath guitarist Emil Werstler (on bass) and Daath keyboardist Sean Zatorsky.
In a recent interview with Canadian sports network The Score, Chimaira keyboardist Sean Zatorsky played video games, chatted about his favorite Football teams and even shared some upcoming events for the band.
The last two years have been a hellish ride for Chimaira. First, they lost three band members -- drummer Andols Herrick, bassist Jim Lamarca and keyboardist Chris Spicuzza. After a brief period of panicking, they replaced the dudes with two members of Daath, multi-instrumentalist Emil Werstler on bass and keyboardist Sean Zatorsky. Then they added drummer Austin D'Amond and wrote one of their best albums to date, 'The Age of Hell.' But now, Hell hath unleashed its unpredictable fury yet again.
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).
For the last few days, Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter has been sending out hundreds of tweets in a discussion/battle regarding the current state of the music industry. Hunter has been exchanging tweets with Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe and his fans about Spotify, record labels and music retailers such as Best Buy and FYE.
