18:20 - tibosax I think we need a category for Technical Death for this next edition of MS awards. I mean, there's been so many technical death album releases this year that I can barely remember any pure death release.
Chthonic have released a new video showcasing their new song "Sail Into The Sunset's Fire" from the new album Bú-Tik. So, you can listen to a new song and watch another new video. Enjoy! The video was once again directed by Lin Chun.
Explains Lin Chun: "When a person encounters difficulties, he might feel as though he is going through a storm, so I chose to shoot with water. No-one was prepared for the storm, but it brought a fabulous effect to the video!"
Bassist Doris Yeh added: "It seemed such a coincidence when it started to pour. The cameraman was completely soaked and shivering, so I was thinking: 'Okay! Let's get this done quickly so he can get out of the water!'"
According to vocalist Freddy Lim, "Sail Into The Sunset's Fire" recounts the story of pirates in East Asia in the Age Of Exploration: "We're not encouraging kidnapping or robbery, but the challenge to conventional authority here is indeed inspiring. According to historical accounts, the pirates — who came from islands between Japan & Indonesia — had planned to overthrow the Ming Empire of China and the Tokugawa Shogunate of Japan, and some of them eventually settled along Taiwan's western coast..."
You can listen to "Next Republic" here and also watch the band's previous video "Defenders Of Bú-Tik Palace" here. The album drops on June 3rd under Spinefarm Records.
