  • Can anyone recommend more bands that sounds like Chthonic and Anthelion?
  • ''Far East'' goes metal. Not bad. But I wouldn't use stylistic elements from visual kei in order to look more 'metalhead like'.
  • Their earlier stuff could be considered black metal, although their newer stuff are more to be considered modern/alternative melodic death metal or whatnot. I don't know.
  • This isn't black metal.
  • Excelente Banda...
  • My friend was playing the extreme metal band in his car as he was driving home from a concert in NYC, this band is fantastic.
  • The acoustic album is downright incredible. Seriously beautiful. I can't get enough of it!
  • Wow this band is unique :). I remember seeing them at ozzfest when i was around 14. Im now 22 and just giving this band the listen they deserve. Just finished Seediq Bale. Reminds me a bit of Cradle of Filth and a bit of Sigh. It didnt win me over the first time but it feels like it needs to grow on me a bit. Crazy they are from Taiwan and made it to ozzfest.
  • Symphonic Black Metal? Maybe back in 2009, but just musically, not lyrically. Call it Oriental (Extreme) Metal or just Taiwan Metal. :D
  • Totally epic and uncompromising symphonic black metal from Taiwan. One of a kind production. With the added melancholic sound of Er-hu. Hail Taiwan, hail Chthonic!
