So far, CHTHONIC has released three music videos supporting their new album Bú-tik, and all of them are proven to be great success. Among the three videos, Supreme Pain for the Tyrant, which blended in actions, dance, and history, made it to the playlist of the International Asian American Film Festival
Having just ended the trip to Japan, bassist Doris Yeh flew to New York last weekend for the film festival and press events to promote the new album. Check out the video as well as behind the scenes footage below:
CHTHONIC released their seventh studio recording, Bú-Tik, in North America via Spinefarm Records US June 25, 2013. Bú-Tik was recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011’s critically-lauded Takasago Army full-length. Called “a masterful and elegant tradition served underneath soaring thrash-influenced guitars, pummeling drums and a vocal performance that is absolutely stellar from an overlooked vocalist,” by About.com, Bú-Tik is centered around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution, and highlights what bassist Doris Yeh describes as “righteous violence, justifiable defense, and the armed spirits.” The cover image depicts the fighting spirit of a girl with albinism.
