The Chimera or Chimaera (play /kɨˈmɪərə/ or /kaɪˈmɪərə/; Greek: Χίμαιρα, Khimaira, from χίμαρος, khimaros, “she-goat”) was, according to Greek mythology, a monstrous fire-breathing female creature of Lycia in Asia Minor, composed of the parts of multiple animals: upon the body of a lioness with a tail that ended in a snake’s head, the head of a goat arose on her back at the center of her spine. The Chimera was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra. The term chimera has also come to describe any mythical animal with parts taken from various animals and, more generally, an impossible or foolish fantasy.
I started this blog / music magazine because I love music, and I love to write – why not combine the two? Also, I named it Chimera because my musical tastes are, to say the least, wide and varied. For the sake of keeping it somewhat manageable, however, I will keep to the rock & metal (and numerous sub-genres thereof) end of the spectrum.
Hopefully, in time, you will find reviews and other ramblings pertaining to music here.
