Friday, 24th May 2013

Taiwanese metallers CHTHONIC have posted the video for “Sail Into The Sunset’s Fire,” a song from their seventh studio album, Bú-Tik, which will be released on June 3 through Spinefarm Records (June 18 in North America).

Bú-Tik was recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011’sTakasago ArmyBú-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!”
