    Since Chimaira disbanded and I absolutely love their first studio-album, I decided to cover one of my favorite songs off of Pass Out of existence.

    [SC]https://soundcloud.com/chiatphil/chimaira-lumps-chi-tribute-cover[/SC]

    I tried to capture a few characteristics here and there, but I still tried to make it sound like Chi. It's a shame their future albums didn't really catch my attention and I really think they should've stuck with their original style. A great addition to the world of Nu Metal.

    Playing is a little sloppy here and there, haven't been on my guitar for a week or so, but I know that's no excuse. :lol: I hope you enjoy listening, if you guys have any questions regarding how I work and what I use, feel free to post these here.

    Cheers.

    Aww man, I was really close to doing a song from The Impossibility of Reason or Resurrection! :D

    Your guitar tone is very "Periphery I"-like. Minimum gain, very middy. Not that it's a bad thing, just making observations.

    Do it! Resurrection is probably the only song apart from the POOE album I like. (Because of that one riff, you know which one.)

    And well, I lowered the gain on the intro triplet part because I thought it sounded better. The rest of the tone has much more gain actually. :agreed:

    Maybe I will! We'll see how it goes.

    A little extra for my YouTube upload - I've done a video playthrough of the song as well, so people don't have to stare at a picture while listening. :ugh:
