Chamber Music is the second studio album by California Nu metal band Coal Chamber, released on Roadrunner Records on September 7, 1999.

Album information[edit]

With this record, Coal Chamber purposely distanced their sound from that of Korn and White Zombie who they were often compared to because of the prominent influence on Coal Chamber's debut album. Many of the songs on Chamber Music are notably more melodic than that of its predecessor and could perhaps make it the group's most accessible record. Their cover of Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey," featuring guest vocals by Ozzy Osbourne, helped launch the band into the mainstream music scene as well. A music video was produced for "Shock the Monkey," and the song received notable radio airplay for a time.

The song "What's in Your Mind?" opens with a lengthy example of backmasking.
