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.
