To give fans more of an insight into the album, Metal Blade created a series of Lyric description/audio teasers for each song from “Elements of the Infinite.” Each brief segment features a clip of music from each song on the record, and a description of the track from vocalist Ezra Haynes. All of the segments are available via the band’s official facebook page and instagram account: facebook.com/allegaeon | instagram.com/allegaeonofficial

Elements of the Infinite” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Colorado Feb-April 2014. Otero’s work has been more prominent in the last few years – some fans may have heard his work on the latest Cattle Decapitation album, Cephalic Carnage, and more. Otero’s efforts here, along with the band’s new material, has led to ALLEGAEON‘s most realized and mature release to date. Musically, fans will be treated to orchestrations that provide significant depth to the sound. The orchestrations were composed by guitarist Greg Burgess along with Joe Ferris (monumentalaudio.net).

The band recently posted a video that reveals album artwork, track listing and 30 second song clips from their new album. CHIMAIRA also made headlines by way of crowd-funding a fan version CD/DVD where they more than doubled their initial goal via IndieGoGo.

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 & define a dark future with their new album, Crown of Phantoms.

Make no mistake; a monster has come in from the darkness to feed. Awakened, haunted, pissed-off, and above all, completely aware. You have no choice but to allow Chimaira to transcend your expectations yet again.

BIO:

Most high school friends can’t even stand to look at each other once school’s out, but in the case of vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key, they decided to spend even more time together after graduation.

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, they joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they’ve coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed would be proud of and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

(L- R) – Alex “Shmalex” Dontre – Drums | Josh “The J” Key – Guitar | Rob “Rawrb” Kersey – Vocals | Matty J “Moose” – Bass

With two full-length albums behind them – We Couldn’t Think of a Title and Sandwich, the band released their latest record, Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D, in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

CHIMAIRA Launch Crowd Funding Campaign, New Album Info

Metal titans CHIMAIRA announced a massive crowd funding campaign surrounding the release of their brand new LP, Crown of Phantoms. The album will be released on Tuesday, July 30, 2013.

The band is seeking support for a special fan edition CD/DVD. This edition and its perks will only be available to campaign supporters and will not be sold anywhere else. Specifically,  supporters will be contributing to the following:

  • Two narrative music videos
  • A behind the scenes, Crown Of Phantoms making-of documentary
  • Seven additional tracks exclusive to the fan edition
  • Various behind the scenes videos
  • Expanded version of Dr. Z with fan determined ending
  • Full length album commentary that features dialog from all the band members as they listen to the record start to finish
  • Graphic art storyboards created specifically for the music videos included in the fan edition booklet
  • Original Artwork & Packaging exclusive to the fan edition

To further conceptualize their plan, the band has released a video explaining, with some satire, the details of their campaign along with a sneak peek of a brand new track called Kings of the Shadow World and a visual display of the many creative perks they’re offering to contributors. Visit the official campaign site for full details on the endeavor and its perks.

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.

Frontman Mark 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: Mark Hunter (vocals), Emil Werstler (guitar), Austin D’Amond (drums), Matt Szlachta (guitar), Jeremy Creamer (bass), Sean Zatorsky (keyboards)
