This is disc three of Coming Alive, a lavish multimedia package containing a documentary, a concert DVD and an audio-only document of said concert. Chimaira, as you'd expect, is brutal in the live setting. They tear into their post-everything mix of metalcore, groove metal, thrash and death metal with equal parts force and precision. Considering Chimaira has come of age during the rise of nu-metal balladry and cheesy emocore, it's impressive how the Cleveland ensemble has kept things raw and unhinged. In fact, they seem to be getting only more and more extreme as time progresses. Good for them.
