Resurrection is the fourth studio album by Chimaira, released on March 6, 2007. Debuting at number 42 on the Billboard 200 charts, Resurrection shipped about 16,000 copies sold in its first week.[14] The album was released in two forms: a regular version, and a limited edition version with different cover artwork and a DVD documentary of the making of the album. Chimaira's first album with Ferret Music since leaving Roadrunner Records, Resurrection features drummer Andols Herrick who rejoined the group.

The international edition issued by Nuclear Blast was issued in a digipak along with the DVD documentary. However, the cover artwork was the standard one.

There's also a tin box limited to 500 copies from Nuclear Blast Germany, that includes the album with the DVD, plus six pictures of the band and a numbered authenticity certificate.

The title track appears on the soundtrack for the video game Saint's Row 2.

The album is also listed on Metal Storm's top 100 metalcore albums.[15]
