The band recently debuted the new single, 'All That's Left Is Blood'.

Vocalist Mark Hunter weighs in on the single: "'All That’s Left Is Blood' is an exercise in musical evisceration. One almost feels guilty for screaming along to such audio violence. Here, Werstler’s soloing lays a daring fluidity over the riot-inciting main riff. It’s immediately recognizable as being another classic Chimaira track, trademarked territory yet radical with growth."

'All That's Left Is Blood' is available now via iTunes.

For more than a decade, Chimaira has been imposing its gravity on the metal community by continually touring the globe and selling more than a million albums worldwide. Their brand of heavy music has evolved and transcended both itself and the trends while maintaining its persistent, bludgeoning force. In 2013, Chimaira continues to direct the masses and define a dark future with their new album, Crown of Phantoms.

Hunter comments on the band’s forward progression: "When I started this band I had a desire to make extremely heavy, eclectic metal. Nothing has changed in that regard. I wanted to merge all the styles I loved into a hybrid of sounds. Having the chance to reinvent the group gave me the opportunity to work with unbelievable players and take the essence of Chimaira to uncharted territory. Assembling the right team was essential to creating what I feel is some of the craziest and most passionate music I've had the pleasure to be a part of. The past defines us while the present refines us."

Chimaira is:

Mark Hunter (vocals)

Emil Werstler (guitar)

Austin D'Amond (drums)

Matt Szlachta (guitar)

Jeremy Creamer (bass)

Sean Zatorsky (keyboards)
