One of a kind Taiwanese heavy metal band CHTHONIC has finally come out with its new album, Battlefields of Asura. Over the past five years, the five members of the band have turned new pages of their lives, with the lead vocalist having organized a new political party and being successfully elected to a seat in the Taiwanese parliament. Nonetheless, they never forgot their promise to their fans to deliver a new album. This time, they even invited the Hong Kong diva Denise Ho to work with them in order to produce a uniquely Taiwanese style of heavy metal.
The 11 new songs are an adventure. This is a journey with Taiwanese immortals. What lies ahead is full hostility, murderous emotions, walls of iron that are difficult to conquer, and lusts and desires that are not easy to bid farewell to, but there is also courage that inspires infinity. At the end of the adventure, it turns out to be a quest for the perpetual prajna. When you feel tears on your face, you will realize that this is where all the stories told in CHTHONIC’s past albums come from.
Although this is an album about Taiwanese immortals showing off their muscles and about dieties fighting, everyone can find a release for their anger, a way to heal their wounds, and the power of rebirth.
