New Chthonic Album Announced

2011-04-01 by DarkNoctus | 29 Comments
Taiwanese symphonic black metallers Chthonic have announced that their new album, Takasago Army, will be released in June.

Produced by Rickard Bengtsson (ARCH ENEMY, NEMESIS) at Sweet Spot Studios in Halmstad, Sweden, this 10-track outing completes a trilogy of CHTHONIC releases, telling a story that binds together the band's "Seediq Bale" and "Mirror Of Retribution" albums, released in 2007 and 2009, respectively.

Comments bassist Doris Yeh: "The Takasago Army was a Taiwanese troop of Japanese force/Axis powers that fought in the Pacific War/World War II between 1940 and 1944. The Takasago soldiers were descendants of a brave and powerful people from the mountains of Taiwan, people with a strong warrior tradition.
They impressed their rivals with their cunning, tenacity and skill on the battlefield, and they became the most revered and most feared combat unit in the Japanese Imperial Army."


Also announced is a re-release of their 2006 album, Seediq Bale, in an expanded form.

The only reason I remember them is because they played Ozzfest the year it was free and I decided to go.

Seediq Bale is one of my favorite symphonic black metal albums, but I didn't even listen to the last one after all the negative attention it got.

These douchebags need to admit their COF influence instead of hiding behind it. Also first album ruled, second album blew. Hope this is decent.
