They've gotten heavier, it appears they can play groovy headbanging parts after all. And the two stringed fiddle fucking slays in thid song. Major ruleage...

AHHHH!!! Marlyn Manson morphed!!!!
Now who is this? I don't feel like checking Wikipedia...Extreme metal?
Digging: Free Throw - Those Days Are Gone
Taiwanese symphonic black metal? Sounds br00tal.
Symphonic Oriental Folk Blackened Extreme Metal. Their old corpse paint was much cooler and unqiue than the typical Scandinavian bullshit, Doris was rather hot but now it's like pagan visual kei on meth.
I dont like the vocals...
Song was pretty awesome. Can't wait to hear the whole album. I don't know if anything will compare to Seediq Bale though.
This is gonna be sweeeeeet!!!!
While waiting for this, I shall revisit Seeqid Bale (or however is spelled). Haven't heard it in ages
btw, what happened to the guy that played the violin-like thingy. Did he left the band??
Some guy left the band. But somebody still plays the er-hu.
Asian black metal bands look even more ridiculous than Norwegian black metal bands.
Digging: Kayo Dot - Coffins On Io
Ha ha no. Before this, Chthonic in my opinion boasted the coolest paint job out of any band. Also did you see that corpse paint for dummies off youtube? It's dank.
3:12 minute mark = black metal Grandma.
Well in the picture on this page they wouldn't be out of place in a terrible anime.
also lmao at the corpsepaint video
His highs sound better...bit more organic. As a whole, it sounds more organic, I like the production better than their previous release.
Not bad. It seemed like he was trying to sound like Dani Filth though. His vocals sounded better on Seediq Bale imo.
possibly one of the gayest band pics i've ever seen
Well, at least it's unique, and that chick looks cool.
what about that one dude at the bottom who looks like he'd have sex with a twilight book
Songs kicks ass, my local cd shop never has their cds though, so I will have to travel 40 minutes away to the nearest Hot Topic :/
hot topic carried chthonic???
look at the band pic again and ask if you're surprised
Yeah the one here does.
Apparently band pictures are important.
If it wasnt for Ozzfest Chthonic probaly wouldnt be at Hot Topic. That gave them a ton of positive press, otherwise they'd be obscure as hell.
I sent this to you Balls, did you get it?
the 'two string fiddle' is called an eh-ru
New Chthonic? Awesome.
Digging: Thank You Scientist - Maps of Non-Existent Places
I didn't see this before, but they were picked up by Spinefarm? That's pretty sweet, they tend to put out some really good stuff...as far as I remember?
this was badass. vocals are fine for me.
Fucking right man!
Quasi Putrefaction is the best thing on Seediq Bale.
I dun know. Bloody Gaya Fufilled comes close.
That's my second favorite (:
My favorite would have to be Where the Utux Ancestors Wait. That was the first song I ever heard from this band and it's still my favorite.
"Taiwanese extreme metal band".
HEY GUYS LET DROP OUR COOL ORIENTAL FOLK INFLUENCE, AS WELL AS OUR ORIGINALLITY AND COOL CORPSEPAINT AND THROW IT OUT THE FUCKIN WINDOW. THEN LETS ADD MORE GAY KEYBOARDS, VISUAL KEI MEETS TWILIGHT QUEER MAKEUP, AND RIP OFF EVERY FUCKING CRADLE OF FILTH RECORD IN EXSISTENCE WHILE DENY DENY DENYING CRADLE'S SIGNIFICANT INFLUENCE ON THE BAND. FUCK YOU CHTHONIC!!!!!
never listened to these guys
Chthonic, you just made Balls angry.
Atonement can be obtained by posting naked pics of your bassist
Their new album is absolutely horrible. It sounds nearly exactly like a Cradle Of Filth record.
