Ián-Bú (DVD)

Chthonic - Ián-Bú (DVD)

The first new video release from the eclectic ensemble in six years includes stunning live footage and extensive bonus features beginning with Chthonic's full performance at the 2013 Formoz Festival in Taipei, Taiwan where they were joined by the Chai Feng Traditional Orchestra, as well as renowned Taiwanese opera singer Tang Mei-yun for a collaborative rendition of the track 'Defenders Of Bú-Tik Palace.' Additionally, the near-hour-long DVD five spectacular music videos from their recently released Bú-tik full-length: 'Defenders Of Bú-Tik Palace,' 'Supreme Pain For The Tyrant,' 'Sail Into The Sunset's Fire,' 'Set Fire To The Island,' and 'Next Republic.'

The music videos are an extraordinary blend of martial arts, combat fighting, dance, and drama. Chthonic members wire fly in the air, bathe in water amid pouring rain and travel through time to a party in the 1930s in an elaborate military alliance between Nazi Germany and the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) regime. The production truly highlights Chthonic's irrefutable creativity both onstage and beyond. Additional extras include behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoots as well as exclusive interviews with bassist Doris Yeh and director Vince Chuang and various backstage footage.
