Chthonic – Takasago Army


The real strength lay in the last half of the album where the momentum of ferociousness and awesome blends of folk elements with melodic metal seen from “Kaoru” until the album finishes. You can feel the extremes of emotion and surreal atmosphere as the triumphant roaring turns to introspective disenchantment. With the band’s forte of expressing about historical events, the album once again went on to the path of native mythology like in “Oceanquake” (where gods protect Takasago soldiers from foes and misfortunes) and “Quell The Souls In Sing Ling”(Wubus surrendering himself for his companions).
