CHTHONIC - New Song Streaming Online2013-04-22
Taiwanese metallers Chthonic have confirmed a June 3rd release date for their seventh studio album Bú-Tik via Spinefarm Records. Today the band has also released a brand new song, "Next Republic", for streaming and you can hear it right now on the player HERE.
Bú-Tik is based around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution - highlights "righteous violence & justifiable defense"; once more, it takes the listener deep into the folklore and history of exotic Taiwan.
Says bassist Doris Yeh: "We are very proud to present Bú-Tik to the world; it talks about self-defense, 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!"

Doris talks about their upcoming video: "For this clip, the first in a series of four, we decided to put ourselves through one month of martial arts training, to prepare ourselves properly. Finally, a couple of days ago, we filmed the video over a 24 hour period, and we are all now covered in bruises and completely exhausted... it's not easy to go at it for such an extended period!"
