REST IN PEACE: Chimaira (1998-2014)

After facing the troubles of a revolving door lineup for years which eventually led to the recent departure of five of Chimaira‘s six members, founding vocalist Mark Hunter has decided to finally put the band to rest.

The band’s official website and Facebook now contain a final message from Hunter which reads:

After fifteen full blown as ripping years, it is with great honor to announce the end of Chimaira.

Thanks to everyone that supported the group in any way shape or form.
Everyone involved with the band from members to fans put their heart and soul into this project.

We acheived a lot. We bled a lot.
It fucking ruled.

Chimaira were an absolutely essential piece of the heavy metal/metalcore scene during their prime, so it’s an absolute shame to see the name finally retired, even with the group’s recent troubles. In honor of their demise, follow the jump to jam out to “Resurrection” one last time and be sure to share your Chimaira memories in the comments section below.
