Chimaira posted a message about band's dissolution on the official website.
"After fifteen full-blown ass-ripping years, it is with great honor to announce the end of Chimaira.
Thanks to everyone that supported the group in any way shape or form.
Everyone involved with the band, from members to fans, put their heart and soul into this project. We achieved a lot. We bled a lot. It fucking ruled."
For a couple of days before almost all Chimaira musicians made a decision to leave the band. At first the guitarist Emil Werstler had left the project and the next day other band members, except the vocalist Mark Hunter, also quitted.
Musicians gave the following comment for Theprp.com:
"In light of recent news, the rest of the band have decided to part ways with Chimaira. For us this was a great stepping stone, and an honor to play these songs live, and fulfill an incredible legacy. This was an an excellent platform to help continue playing music, when our collective bands either ended or went on a hiatus. Chimaira was an amazing experience and we look forward to future music endeavors with eachother."
We're reminding, that Chimaira was an American heavy metal band from Cleveland, Ohio. Formed in 1998, Chimaira was a notable member of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal scene.
