CHTHONIC: To Release New Album, "Battlefields Of Asura" October 2018.
Taiwanese heavy metal band CHTHONIC, which is one of its kind, finally comes up with its new album "Battlefields Of Asura" five years after. In the past five years, the five members of the band have turned new pages of their lives, with the lead vocalist having organized a new political party and being successfully elected to a seat in the Taiwanese Parliament, they never forget their promise to their fans about a new album. This time, they even invited the Hong Kong diva Denise Ho to work with them, to produce a uniquely Taiwanese-style heavy metal. The 11 new songs is an adventure.
It’s a journey with Taiwanese immortals. What await ahead are full hostility, murderous emotions, walls of iron that are difficult to conquer, lusts and desires that are not easy to bid farewell too, but there are also courage that inspires infinity. At the end of the adventure, it turns out of a quest for the perpetual prajna. When you feel tears on your face, you would realize that this is where all the stories told in CHTHONIC’s past albums come from. Although this is an album about Taiwanese immortals showing off their muscles and elves fighting, but everyone could find an exit for their anger, a way to heal their wounds, and find the power for rebirth.
