CHIMAIRA: 'Nothing Remains' Video 'Stolen'

Fans are so rabid for new CHIMAIRA material that one of them "stole" the video to "Nothing Remains", the first single off the self-titled album that will be in stores August 9, and put it up all over the web. The video was stolen from the director's web site after the fan illegally hacked in. Still in its inital editing phase, the video had yet to be seen by the band or executives at Roadrunner Records.

Commented singer Mark Hunter: "It's exciting to see that our fans are itching to get a hold of our new material, and to see that they actually enjoyed the video. However, the video was in its infant stage and while we are extremely proud of where it stands now, we know that it will be much better when it is finished. I can't wait for our fans to see the finished version and as soon as it's done I'll put it up on the web myself."

The follow-up to 2003's "The Impossibility of Reason", "Chimaira" was recorded at Spider Studios in Ohio with producer Ben Schigel, who has described the new material as having "more of an epic kind of vibe. The songs are a lot longer, but we found a way to make them long without being boring. Now that it's coming together, it sounds way more brutal." Mixing duties were handled by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH).
