Review:
Damn, another great year of Chimaira Christmas. Always one of my most fun concerts of the year. As most of you know, this was Rob and Matt's last show with Chimaira, as they're quitting the band after years and years writing great music. And since Rob was the primary songwriter of the band, it marks the end of Chimaira as I know, love, and grew up with. One of my favorite bands, from middle school to now.

Last year's setlist was pretty fucking incredible, and opening up with most of The Impossibility of Reason was unbeatable in my opinion, but I still enjoyed this year a ton. Pulling out Painting the White to Grey was an awesome and totally unexpected surprise, and even though I wasn't a huge fan of the new album, most of the songs they played off of it were incredible. It's always amazing to see a band that you love play a full 2 hour set like that. I hoped to see them pull out something a little more special (*cough* 10th Year Anniversary of Pass Out of Existence, play it in its entirety *cough*), but the set was still great.

Mark is also one of the nicest frontmen in metal. Just a real nice, genuine, and thankful guy up on the stage. I also caught a pick from Emil Werstler, currently their bassist and moving up to guitar after this show. Skeletonwitch were pretty solid as usual, but just didn't have the same energy live in my opinion. And although I think Salt the Wound is a complete snoozefest on record, they were really good live. It was really refreshing to see a deathcore band like that in a Chimaira crowd, where everybody was push-moshing. They got a better reaction than Skeletonwitch, also. Probably because they're supposed to be retired. There was only one hardcore dancer, and I swear he looked like an identical clone of Garagemetal. Don't have their set or Skeletontits'; sorry. From what I remembered, it was standard for 'em.

Sucks to see Rob and Matt leave, but this was a great farewell for 'em. Until next year!

Everything You Love. The one Chimaira rarity I want to see live, and they played it at their, for all intents and purposes, last show. Though I may never see it played to its fullest form, its awesome to see the band acknowledged it.

It's awesome you got to see Rob and Matt's last show. Chimaira is my favorite band as well. I saw their second to last show in Michigan. I think the xmas set from last year kicks the shit out of this set. The first 12 or so songs are the same exact set that they played on their last tour with Unearth. I think they should've done something more special like last years set, which was incredible. Did Rob and Matt say anything to the fans, cuz it was their last show, or not?

I was fortunate enough to see this when they toured for their S/T. This needs to be back in set full time.

You went to this.
I didn't.
You deliberately posted this just to make me feel bad.

Ergo, you are a dick.

Not at all, actually. Mark introduced each one throughout the set, giving the crowd a brief history on how they joined, but they never said anything themselves.
