CHTHONIC Listening Party Brought To You By AOL Music

Beginning today, AOL Music will host an exclusive CHTHONIC listening party! Check out the band’s upcoming new full-length, Takasago Army, in its entirety HERE. The stream will run from August 29 through to September 5.

The sixth full-length from the long-running Orient metallers, Takasago Army will be released in North America on September 6, 2011 via Spinefarm Records. The ten-track offering was produced by Rickard Bengtsson (Arch Enemy, Nemesis) at Sweet Spot Studios in Halmstad, Sweden and completes a trilogy that binds together the band’s Seediq Bale and Mirror Of Retribution albums, released in 2007 and 2009 respectively.

Coinciding with the North American release of the record, the band will embark upon a near three-week tour supporting Arch Enemy. Sponsored by MetalSucks and Full Metal Jackie, the North American Khaos 2011 trek will commence on September 8 in Maryland and steamroll its way across the country and Canada. DevilDriver and Skeletonwitch will also be joining the tour.
