Taiwanese black metal act Chthonic are a force to be reckoned with. The band doesn’t only house an outspoken frontman who has since become a legislator and therefore impacting real change from inside the system, but the band never shies away from standing up for freedoms the world over.
The band has just released the following t-shirt design to support the movement in Hong Kong. All proceeds will be given to Hong Kong Outlanders association.

You can order the T-shirt here.
Thank you Chthonic.
Freddy has also put up the second of his new podcast series Metalhead Politics which is in all English – he talks about the HK protests in it. Streaming below.
“Episode 2 of METALHEAD POLITICS, a new show by Freddy Lim of Chthonic and Emily Y. Wu of Ghost Island Media. It’s been a hell of a month. Freddy and Emily open with positive updates from Taiwan (adultery is decriminalized; a pro-China populist mayor gets recalled) before diving into the topic of the day. They stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and examine systematic oppression in Asia. An estimated one-million people are still in concentration camps in Xinjiang. The Chinese Communist Party performs a force choke on Hong Kong with a National Security Law. Freddy deconstructs how “Millenia’s Faith Undone” went from Taiwanese lyrics to melody. He sings a children’s song, and introduces LMF (Lazy Mutha Fucka 大懶堂), a Cantonese hip-hop group from Hong Kong.”
