Release:

Spinefarm Records / Soulfood
31.05.2013 (GER)

Info:

Recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011’s ‘Takasago Army’, ‘Bú-Tik’ sees the band returning to the scene with their signature brand of symphonic ‘orient metal’, as they choose to define it; as usual, the musicians continue on their mission to build awareness of the myths of Taiwan and thetragic events in their country's history.

‘Bú-Tik’ – based around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution – highlights “righteous violence & justifiable defence”; once more, it takes the listener deep into the folklore & history of exotic Taiwan.

Says bassist and band spokesperson, Doris Yeh: “We are very proud to present ‘Bú-Tik’ to the world; it talks about self-defence, righteous violence and the armed spirits! With this album, we have pushed ourselves to achieve new heights – heights we've never imagined before! We are leading metal fans to the next episode of Chthonic!”

From Fuji Rock & Loud Park in Japan, through to Ozzfest in the US, Bloodstock & Download in the UK, and Wacken Open Air in Germany, Chthonic have already made their mark around theworld, touring in over 30 countries, picking up awards (including the Golden Melody Award – the Taiwanese equivalent of a Grammy), featuring on magazine front covers, supporting political causes, releasing photo books, appearing in the charts and of course making powerful, unique music steeped in their own culture.
