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...

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.

Song was pretty awesome. Can't wait to hear the whole album. I don't know if anything will compare to Seediq Bale though.

Asian black metal bands look even more ridiculous than Norwegian black metal bands.

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.

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.

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 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?

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.

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.
