Guitarist Emil Werstler Exits Chimaira

Chimaira‘s lead guitarist Emil Werstler has exited the group. Werstler offered of his departure:

“My time in Chimaira has, unfortunately, come to an end. It is time for me to move on as I continue to focus on harvesting my abilities as a musician. I’m very fond of everyone in the band and wish them all the best in the future.

Although this was a difficult choice to make, I feel it was necessary in order to take the next step in my career. The best is still yet to come and I’m very excited for the multiple projects I am working on. I would like to thank the band, management, and, most importantly, all the fans for the endless support and understanding.”

    Just goes to show you that Chimaira is the top of no one’s “ladder of success” unless you’re Mark Hunter.

      Lol! But how many of OUR ladders will be above playing a broken snare drum in Mom and Uncle Mickey’s basement?

  • TimLSD

    just give it up already


    …and the Mark Hunter Five becomes four.

    • Stereotypical Evil Archer

      I guess Mark Hunter isn’t going to fill the void left by Tim Lambesis.

  • ZMA

    I’m the minority who didn’t think the new Chimaira album was bad BECAUSE of Emil. Dude can play. I don’t know how they’d replace him. Whatever.

    I heard the WHOLE band left again. Statements will follow…

    • chtimixeur

  • Stereotypical Evil Archer

    Mark Hunter might as well hire a fat lady to sing.
