Chimaira Call It Quits
Following the departure of five band members over the past several days, Chimaira have officially called it quits after rocking the scene for over 15 years.

Guitarist Emil Werstler was the first to step out, and was quickly followed by every bandmate except for singer Mark Hunter.

Chimaira was already known for numerous lineup changes that left Hunter as the only original member, but this time around, Mark decided that it's the end of the road.

"After fifteen full blown a-- ripping years, it is with great honor to announce the end of Chimaira," the statement reads.

"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 f--king ruled."

Founded in 1998, Chimaira have released a total of seven studio records. The group's final album, "Crown of Phantoms," saw its release in July 2013 via E1 Music.
