How’s this for random? Taiwanese metal band Chthonic is nominated for Golden Melody Award


So this is a little weird…hugely popular Taiwanese black-metal band Chthonic who are loved and embraced by metalheads all over the world have just announced on their website that they have been nominated for this year’s Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan – which, in their own words, is “the Taiwanese version of the Grammy Awards”.

They’ve been nominated for:

  • Best Taiwanese album for the album¬†???? Timeless Sentence


  • Best band

We wish these dudes and dudette the best of luck in these awards! They’re already MASSIVE in Taiwan and this will just continue to help their cause because they always fight for so many great issues and the more the public is aware about them and their beliefs, the better. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world. We support all bands and genres HOWEVER we do not support nor have any sympathy for homophobic, racist, sexist rhetoric in lyrical content or band material. UNITE ASIA!
