Chimaira has been my second favorite band for the past five years and I consider myself a die hard Chimaira fan. Impossibility, self titled, Resurrection, and the Infection are all in my top 15 albums of all time. While I do really like this album, I have to say it isn't Chimaira. I hate how people think that Austin D'Amond drummed on this album when he didn't, it was their producer Ben Schigel.
I thought they'd release Resurrection part 2 (a fast paced album) after the slower paced Infection. The way I look at The Age of Hell is a B-side to The Infection. The songs are still slower paced, and with exception to Year of the Snake I don't believe a single song off this album can make any of their previous four albums.
