CHTHONIC To Enter Studio Next Month

The Taiwanese symphonic black metal band CHTHONIC will record its as-yet-untitled fifth album between May 5 and June 3 at a studio in North Hollywood, California. Producing the effort will be ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano, who has previously worked with CRADLE OF FILTH, SAHG and BLEEDING THROUGH, among others.

CHTHONIC completed the third and final leg of its European "UNlimited" tour last fall.

SPV/Deathlight recently released a new CHTHONIC compilation, entitled "Pandemonium". This album features re-recorded versions of many older, hard-to-find CHTHONIC songs as well as several selections from their most recent studio album, "Seediq Bale". For new fans, "Pandemonium" provides the perfect introduction to Taiwan's most successful musical ambassadors; for older fans, the album makes these cult classics finally sound the way they were always intended to be heard.

Like other CHTHONIC releases, "Pandemonium" will feature lavish packaging that includes 10 collectible "song cards," unique digibox packaging with album art featuring Kuan, the "Ghost King" who graces all CHTHONIC covers, and a chronology that details the band's decade-long evolution from underground obscurity into one of the fastest-rising international stars in heavy metal.

Get in the Pit TV conducted an interview with the Taiwanese black metallers CHTHONIC on November 19 prior to the band's gig in Tampere, Finland. Watch the nine-minute chat below:
