Kimaera (2000-present): a Death Metal band from Lebanon.
imaera was founded in the summer of 2000 by guitarist/vocalist J.P. Originally known as Chimera, they covered heavy metal bands like Metallica, Judas Priest and Megadeth under the membership of Tony (drums), Chantal (keyboards/vocals), J.P. (guitars/vocals), Paul (guitars) and Wissam (bass).
As the band matured they started making original music with a distinctive style coming across as a combination of their various and different influences into a mixture of Symphonic/Atmospheric/doom/death metal with violin interludes accompanied with the gothic/angelic vocals of Sabine, who joined the band in summer 2002. New members Pascal (drums) and Moe (keyboard) would soon also be added to the fold.
The band has recorded and released one single in the form of God's Wrath (2004).
