This was a very fucking cool CD. This is a black metal outfit from Taiwan and they flat out rock the house. The videos were very cool. They use an instrument that I think is called an erhu and is a Chinese violin from what I understand. Their songs center around the old spirits and legends of Taiwan's history before the Chinese came along and fucked that up. It's amazing how indigenous peoples have such rich traditions and cultures and folks always come along and fuck that up because they have the audacity to think they have something better to offer. Chthonic offers us a glimpse into their past with melancholy vocals, Eastern musical vibes, and passion. This is definitely a black metal band you need to discover and savor.
