CHTHONIC will bring to W:O:A the surprising combination of classical oriental orchestra and metal

 Having performed twice at Wacken Open Air in Germany, the Taiwanese metal band CHTHONIC will have its third performance at the music festival—and for the very first time, it will perform on the main stage Blackstage on 1 August. The works of CHTHONIC stand out in the ring of metal bands around the world as “Orient metal”. This time, to completely present such enchanting music style to European fans, CHTHONIC is now having intensive rehearsals with Chai Found Oriental Orchestra, which performs with a variety of traditional instruments including hena, ruan, box zither, pipa, yangqin, flute, and sheng. The collaboration will definitely bring a unique musical feast to fans in Europe.

After more than 70 concerts in its European and US tours last year, CHTHONIC will perform at many internationally renowned music festivals, including W:O:A in Germany, the Brutal Assault in Czech republic, and Summer Sonic in Tokyo and Osaka.
CHTHONIC is one of the most outstanding East Asian metal bands in the world that has participated the OzzFest in the US, Download Festival and Bloodstock in the UK, as well as Fuji Rock Festival and Loud Park in Japan. CHTHONIC is the best known metal band in its own country Taiwan, and has performed at more than 500 concerts around the world in nearly a decade.
Chai Found Oriental Orchestra is an award-winning orchestra of traditional instruments and had performed four songs in CHTHONIC concerts in Taiwan, which were recorded on the Ián-bú DVD as classic examples of cooperation between metal rock and traditional music. This time, CHTHONIC will share it with fans at W:O:A, and expand the four-member mini-orchestra to a 10-member full orchestra, hoping to give European audience something they have never experienced before.    
After tours in Europe and in Asia in the summer, CHTHONIC will return to Taiwan for its new movie project, and will switch into a full-gear mode to prepare for its new album at the beginning of the next year. CHTHONIC members therefore vow to give its best for a perfect performances at W:O:A and Brutal Assault.
