New Chabtan video2018-04-21 by DatsNotDaMetulz | 6 Comments
|Parisian "Mayan Metal" group Chabtan have released a new music video for the track "The Fall of Nojpetén" from their new album, Nine Levels, which was released on April 20.|
Nine Levels is the first album released by Chabtan under new label darkTunes Music Group, as well as their first with new drummer Charles Phily, who replaced Yanis Bergheul in 2016. The album furthers their exploration of Mayan and Mesoamerican themes, incorporating more unconventional instruments and moving away from their early deathcore sound.
Along with the release of Nine Levels, Chabtan have also announced that their debut EP Eleven will be reissued by darkTunes Music Group on June 1, to celebrate 5 years since its release. They have yet to confirm any bonus material or remastering.
sssssssssssssssssssssssso it's a bunch of french dudes wearing native american warpaint? That's ahhhhhhhh. Gonna pass.
Digging: Dakhma - Suna Kulto
I guess it's kind of similar to a bunch of American dudes making songs about Egypt, right?
Or are we in de-Nile?
Writing lyrics about mythology and appropriating something from someone else's actual culture are two completely different things and aren't comparable but nice pun.
I've been listening to Chabtan since before they started doing the makeup. Even interviewed them at one point. Seems to be for this album they've gone down this road and I'm not a fan of it but their music is really good.
Thanks, man. Yeah, you make a good point though.
