Taiwan's CHTHONIC have released their new video for 'Next Republic', taken from the band's seventh album Bú-Tik, issuedback in June.
'Arising Armament' (intro)
'Supreme Pain For The Tyrant'
'Sail Into The Sunset's Fire'
'Rage Of My Sword'
'Between Silence And Death'
'Set Fire To The Island'
'Defenders Of Bu-Tik Palace'
'Undying Rearmament' (outro)
Bú-Tik was 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!”
