CHIMAIRA Book Studio Time For DEATH Tribute

CHIMAIRA will be entering Spider Studios on March 22 to record some music from the DEATH albums "Symbolic" and "Human" for the upcoming tribute CD "Within The Mind - In Homage To The Musical Legacy Of Chuck Schuldiner". Legendary guitarist James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) will be handling the production duties alongside CHIMAIRA. Commented CHIMAIRA singer Mark Hunter, "Not only is this an honor for us, but it is very personal to me. Without Chuck's music, I would not be singing today. We will do our best to please all of Chuck's fans, and honor all of the other great musicians involved."

As previously reported, the project, which was conceived by CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller as a means to help Murphy raise money for his medical bills (Murphy is currently receiving treatment for a massive brain tumor with which he was diagnosed in August 2001), is expected to feature a number of special guest appearances, including those by Miller, Murphy, Richard Christy (ICED EARTH, ex-DEATH, CONTROL DENIED), Matt Thompson (KING DIAMOND), Matt DiFabio (PISSING RAZORS, SINGLE BULLET THEORY), Dave Culross (MALEVOLENT CREATION, SUFFOCATION), Luc Lemay (GORGUTS), Patrick Mameli (ex-PESTILENCE), Jean-Francois Dagenais (KATAKLYSM), Mikael Thomson (SLIPKNOT), Paul Gray (SLIPKNOT), Brett Hoffmann (ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION), Ross Dolan (IMMOLATION), Mike Chlasciak (PAINMUSEUM, ex-HALFORD), and Terry Butler (SIX FEET UNDER, ex-DEATH, MASSACRE). Other musicians that are interested in participating (if their touring and/or recording schedules allow) include Peter TÃĪgtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN), Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT), Eric Peterson (TESTAMENT, DRAGONLORD), Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND), and Ryan and Chad of MUDVAYNE.
