CHTHONIC`s Official Video "Supreme Pain for the Tyrant"

Taiwanese metal exhibitionists, CHTHONIC, unveiled a new video for the track "Supreme Pain for the Tyrant" taken from their seventh studio offering nntitled Bú-Tik. The ten track opus was recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011’s critically-lauded Takasago Army full-length and finds the band sharpening their signature brand of self-dubbed symphonic “orient metal.”

Bú-Tik was released in May 29th: Taiwan & Japan | May 31th: Finland & International | June 3rd: the U.K. | June 25th: North America via Spinefarm Records / Universal Music. Check out “Supreme Pain for the Tyrant,” official video.

Inspiration of this song:
on April 24, 1970, a member of the World United Formosans for Independence Peter Huang  attempted to assassinate Chiang Ching-kuo, who was the Vice Premier of the Republic of China at the time in front of the Plaza Hotel in New York. The attempt ended in failure, however, when pushed to the ground by security personnel, Huang shouted "let me stand up like a Taiwanese!"


Supreme Pain for the Tyrant Lyrics

Endless nightfall, swallow the sun

Void of silence, choking on the past's blood
Drowning in deception, taken by the black flood
Sea is rising, never feel or see again
Hypnotizing visage preaching of supreme pain

Searching for a sign
Guide my hands unto your will
Let me be the one
Watch the blood of martyrs spill

Light that flickers in the dark
Forge the way through blackest night
Strangled silence makes its mark
Pierce the heart of tyrant's sight

With these hands I wash the blood clean
Watch it flow past visions obscene
Visions obscene

Endless nightfall, swallow the sun

Veil of madness, prison of the mind's eye
Falling in the vortex, stifling the last sigh
Poisoned cortex dooming flesh to weakened form
Bones are breaking, shattered by the last storm

Searching for a sign
Guide my hands unto your will
Let me be the one
Stand above the one I kill

Light that flickers in the dark
Forge the way through blackest night
Strangled silence makes its mark
Pierce the the heart of tyrant's sight

With these hands I wash the blood clean
Watch it flow past visions obscene

Let me stand up like a Taiwanese
Only justice will bring you peace
