Chimaira/Threat Signal/The Browning/Dark Sermon 

When: Sun., Aug. 25, 6 p.m. 2013
Price: $16 ADV, $19 DOS
Shortly after forming in 1998, local metal band Chimaira would sign a deal with Roadrunner Records that would effectively launch the group's career. It achieved national and international fame as albums such as 2003's The Impossibility of Reason and 2005's Chimaira were every bit as heavy as anything by Slayer or Metallica. The group was on Ozzfest in 2003 and joined the European Road Rage tour that same year. Even after parting ways with Roadrunner in 2006, the band was still a major draw on the metal circuit and its albums still sold well. But last year, the band splintered, leaving only Mark Hunter as the sole original member; the group only made one U.S. appearance in 2012. Now, it's back with Crown of Phantoms, its first studio album in two years. The wailing guitar solos and hoarse vocals are classic Chimaira and suggest the new line-up is every bit as potent as the old one. (Niesel)
