I may have played The Impossibility Of Reason more than any other CD I owned around the time it came out. Chimaira were dope.

Impossibility is definitely cool, but I've always like their self titled the most. The songs are longer on there which some people might not like, but the drumming and riffing on that album are loving out of this world.

I think my favorite song by them is Six off of Resurrection. My favorite ATR song is Six off of The Fall of Ideals. Now I just need a 3rd band with a song named Six that's really good to have the 6-6-6 favorite trifecta

In other news, this is good

The s/t is one of the best albums to come from that whole mid-2000s NWOAHM movement (god what an awful acronym but I don't know that Chimaira really counts as metalcore so whatever).

I don’t mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel. But I am, so that’s how it comes out.


2002 was my senior year of undergrad, and a friend of mine in class was from Cleveland and was into metal. He came in one day and handed me a burned CD that said Chimaira on it and told me to check out this sick new band from his city. I popped it in my discman on the way to the next class and was confronted with a lovely Slipknot soundalike with DJ turntables and other EDM poo poo. I found it unlistenable and couldn't figure out how to tell my friend I didn't like it (because I'm not Shooga).

Then a couple years later they totally rerecorded that debut, cut all the electronic crap out, and acted like it never happened. I enjoyed the next album a lot more. But lol I wish I had held onto that burned CD of the demo version of their debut LP because holy crap it was hilarious how much they were trying to sound like the first Slipknot tape. That's my story.

I really hope it's good. I loved Coma Witch. The two singles from Gravebloom kind of put me to sleep. I love Vincent's voice but his lyrics are super basic and boring anymore, and I can't musically tell the two tracks apart at all. No memorable breakdowns. Come on guys do iiiitttttt do a good record.

I remember the same thing being said about Coma Witch before it came out, so hopefully it's the same situation here.

The lead singles for CW were definitely the weaker tracks.

Just realized why I like Erra so much. It reminds me of Misery Signals when they were good (first three records before they tried to become Opeth).

I don't understand this post at all. None of those 3 bands have ever sounded alike.

While it's true Absent Light doesent go as hard as their previous stuff, "musically" it's probably the best song writing they've ever done. It took me awhile to get into it, but I like it a lot now.

Controller is still my favorite though.

i've listened to it a few times and i think i have a good feel of it, i don't instantly love it like i did with Coma Witch but it's still pretty good.

the last two tracks are ridiculous though, Walled City might be their heaviest song yet.

I have been a huge Acacia Strain fan for many years. I can distinctly remember all of the times I've heard a brand new song for the first time and anxiously awaiting a new album of theirs to drop.

First impression of Gravebloom is that the band is pretty much out of ideas and that they can't even capitalize on what fans like about their sound. Write a hybrid Wormwood/Dead Walk sounding album and I think that's pretty much a homerun as far as I'm concerned. Though I know different TAS fans like different aspects of their sound.

The bouncy part at 1:04 in Big Sleep is pretty much exactly what I want to hear a LOT more of from TAS. Wish they would throw pinch harmonics in for good measure like DL used to do.

0:15 in Model Citizen, 1:01 in Whale Shark (Coma Witch), 1:30 in Dust and the Helix (DITOM), 0:00 in The Impaler (Wormwood) - these are all the styles I love and think what make TAS stand out from other downtempo deathcore bands. They have that hardcore bounce to them.

I hope my opinion changes as I listen more, but I'm pretty underwhelmed so far on like two solid listens.

e: I'm also slightly disappointed that they've moved away from the convention of having a long intro with an ominous audio clip. I can understand it gets old and you skip it during subsequent listens, but I appreciate consistency and ever since Wormwood they've been having Angry Blue design their layouts and have included a bird on each cover. And they already have a loving clip in the first song but it just breaks up the flow and would have been better off being in the beginning anyway.

I agree with this, but would add that one reason I enjoyed Coma Witch so much is to me it was a Wormwood/Dead Walk hybrid. I miss the days when songs would have cool groovy chuggy breakdowns that stand on their own. Nowadays they stick drum fills and and lyrics over top of them and it's not as fun. I'm having a hard time expressing myself. This record sounds very "samey" even for a band that some people have criticized for being samey for 15 years. I'm half way in now and nothing has grabbed me and given me a "holy poo poo" moment like carbomb, smoke ya later, 4x4, Whoa, shut it down!, Seaward, Forget Me Now, etc. My first listen to Whale Shark on Coma Witch blew my loving mind. Maybe I liked them before the Doom/sludge element became more prevalent in their sound. I'm a simple man. I like big asses, craft beer, and chugging breakdowns.

e: Walled City is pretty loving insane. This is the song I want to be listening to when the nukes fall. Apocalypse in a song.

e2: I listened to it like four times while doing yard work today. The production is fantastic, I'll give it that. Model Citizen is the most "vintage TAS" song on here with the bouncing riff parts, and this song goes hard. I like the tape but I wish it had more vintage and less slow doom.
