Cleveland, Ohio metallers CHIMAIRA have released a free digital EP, “The Age Of Remix Hell”, via Multiupload.com.
The track listing for the effort — which, as the title suggests, contains remixed versions of songs from CHIMAIRA‘s latest album, “The Age Of Hell” — is as follows:
01. Year Of The Snake (Dubba Jonny Mix)
02. Clockwork (Hunter Mix)
03. Year Of The Snake (Allinaline Mix)
04. Losing My Mind (Allinaline Mix)
Guitarists Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries will be leaving CHIMAIRA at the end of 2011. Vocalist Mark Hunter says, “We understand that life invades art, everything runs its course, and we have to take different paths. We respect their decision and wish them only the best. We made heavy metal history together and that is all that matters at the end of the day. ‘Chimaira Christmas 12’ [on December 30] will be their last show, and we’ve been preparing to make it one that you’ll never forget.”
“The Age Of Hell” sold more than 7,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “The Infection”, opened with 15,000 units back in April 2009 to land at No. 30. This figure was roughly in line with the first-week tally registered by CHIMAIRA‘s 2007 album, “Resurrection”, which shifted 16,000 copies to enter the chart at No. 42.
“The Age Of Hell” was released in the U.S. on August 16 via eOne Music; in Germany on August 26; and in the United Kingdom, Australia and the rest of Europe on August 29 through Long Branch Records.
