CHTHONIC Tour Update: Band To Play Additional Dates With DevilDriver

CHTHONIC, who are currently trampling stages on the North American Khaos 2011 Tour with headliners Arch Enemy, DevilDriver and Skeletonwitch, recently added a handful of one-off dates with DevilDriver to their schedule. Check the latest routing below.

The long-running metal ensemble are touring in support of their recently unleashed sixth full-length, Takasago Army. Issued 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. Said Popdose in a recent review of the record: “This should certainly challenge all competition for metal album of the year.” Added Revolver: “CHTHONIC have made metal that’s traditional in so many ways, but finally provides a breath of fresh air from your normal death metal stomp-fest.” Blistering agreed giving the record a perfect 10/10 rating: “CHTHONIC‘s distinctive style is fascinating. They have found a way to draw the audience into their world, the soundtrack to which is a sound unequaled.”
