It’s been a few years since Chimaira’s last album, The Age of Hell. Since then, they’ve overhauled their lineup and launched a successful crowdfunding campaign for a fan edition of their upcoming album, Crown of Phantoms (maybe they should have called it a crown-funding campaign?).When we caught up with Mark Hunter late last year, he said that the band was “deep into the process” of recording their next album. Then they played a new song called “I Despise” at their annual Christmas concert. And now we have our first official taste of the band’s seventh album via a studio track called “All That’s Left is Blood.” As you’d expect from a song called that, the song is pretty heavy. Check it out after the jump.
Crown of Phantoms is out on July 30 on eOne Music.
