Takao – Chthonic

Chthonic is a metal band from Taiwan that also incorporates traditional Chinese instruments like the Erhu. I think they’re the most well known metal band out of Taiwan. Their songs often cover parts of Taiwanese history. Their frontman Freddy Lim is an elected politician now, which isn’t too surprising given his political activism in the past. Although I’m not sure how active the band can be now that Lim is an elected official.
