YES! What a huge time for metal in Australia. Impending tours by Queesnryche, Megadeth + Slayer, Dream Theater, Kreator, Devildriver + Lamb of God + Shadows Fall… now this. Man I’d better strengthen up my neck muscles.
CHIMAIRA – ‘SPREADING THE INFECTION’ AUSTRALIAN HEADLINING TOUR 2010
with Special Guests
For the past decade, Chimaira has been one of the most consistently heavy and dedicated bands in metal. With their latest release, The Infection, the Ohio sextet has further honed their sound to one of punishing brutality.
The US sextet is set to return to Australia in January, 2010 to once again destroy venue stages and drive audiences into a frenzy with their patented brand of ferocious precision.
On The Infection, they have delivered a cinematic sonic rollercoaster with machine-gun drumming as tight as a mosquito’s ass, guitar work that hits the ears like a punch in the guts, and venomous vocals that are both tortured and threatening. This all adds up to a sound that the band has described as a “circle pit inside a burning ballroom.”
This is Chimaira’s first headlining Australian tour, having supported their peers In Flames, Biohazard & Korn on their last two trips Down Under. As thousands of Chimairians can attest, Chimaira live are untouchable, and their first headline tour of Australia will prove that fact yet again.
The Infection was released in April via Riot Entertainment and entered both the Aria & JB Hi Fi Charts
