We were given an extremely short sneak-peek of new music from Chimaira a couple of weeks ago, and although it sounded pretty good, it lefts us wanting more. Well, we’ve got our wish, as the band recently premiered not one, but two brand new tracks through iTunes, entitled “Trigger Finger” and “Born In Blood“. Both will of course be featured on the band’s forthcoming album The Age of Hell.
They’re both very traditional-sounding metal track names, and as you might expect the content is pretty standard. It’s a bit pedestrian for my tastes, but then again I’m not happy if there isn’t a 15/8 time signature or something similar in sight, so don’t take my word for it. “Born In Blood” notably features a guest spot from Phil Bozeman of Whitechapel, so if you’re a fan of both then in theory you should be pretty happy with this.
The Age of Hell is due out on August 16th through eOne Music.
