How can you say Andols' departure won't be missed??? He's one of the better and more creative drummers in metal today. You can definitely notice a different presence to the songs because he's not on there. Kevin Talley did an amazing job on S/T, but that's because he's amazing as well. Andols will always be the perfect drummer for Chimaira, and I know Rob loves working and writing with him. Also, Chris only did one recorded backing vocals on Chimaira's entire discography and that was for the song No Reason to Live. You're making it seem like he recorded all backing vocals. It's all Mark. He does do a great job live, but only once in studio.
I do agree that the riff from Born in Blood is a rip off of the riff in Resurrection, but besides that it is still one of the best songs on the album.
