Taiwanese melodic black/death/folk metal band Chthonic will release their new ‘Chthonic Megaport 2021’ live effort come this May 19th. The release features the band’s grand return to the stage to headline Taiwan’s colossal ‘Megaport Festival’ this past March. Pre-orders are available here.
“Chthonic Megaport 2021 will be available digitally and as a special limited “anti-epidemic bundle” including a physical CD, CHTHONIC medical-quality mask, a CHTHONIC mask lanyard, large and small CHTHONIC mask containers and a small CHTHONIC spray can for sanitizer will be available,” says today’s announcement.
Regarding the fest, “After making history by successfully managing the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan was able to move forward with the Megaport Festival, the first large-scale rock festival since the unprecedented global lockdown. Taking place March 27-28 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the festival featured more than 100 artists on 10 stages. Founded in 2006 by CHTHONIC’s Freddy Lim, who left the organizing team after being elected as a member of Taiwanese Parliament in 2016, Megaport Festival attracts tens of thousands of people every year, with this year’s festival selling out its 20,000 tickets within five minutes. For their performance, CHTHONIC was joined by Audrey Tang, a longtime CHTHONIC fan who currently holds the seat of Digital Minister in Taiwan’s cabinet.”
“I felt very excited and grateful when I stood on the stage,” Lim says. “I cherished the connection between the crowd and me, and I also wanted to cheer up the people around the world who watched the show through the live broadcast so much.”
