On Friday, July 5, Taiwanese metallers CHTHONIC were the invited guests at the opening game of the second season of Taiwan’s professional baseball league. Check out video footage of their appearance below. Photos are available at this location.
CHTHONIC‘s seventh album, “Bú-Tik”, was recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtsson, who also worked on 2011’s critically lauded “Takasago Army” full-length and finds the band sharpening their signature brand of self-dubbed symphonic “orient metal.”
“Bú-Tik” was released in North America via Spinefarm Records in the U.S. digitally on June 18 and on CD on June 25.
With “Bú-Tik”, CHTHONIC continue their mission to build awareness of the myths of Taiwan and the tragic events in their country’s history. Centered around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution, “Bú-Tik” highlights what bassist Doris Yeh describes as “righteous violence, justifiable defense, and the armed spirits!”
