Never miss another 'Chthonic' show
Although the band's image might recall the black metal legends of Scandinavia, in truth Chthonic's visual inspiration comes from Taiwanese folklore, in which corpse paint allows certain deities the power to judge good and evil. Similarly, the band's symphonic black metal features a decidedly Oriental twist, as the group prominently features the 'hena' (also known as the 'erhu'), a traditional Eastern two-stringed violin known for its weepy and melancholy sound.

Holocaust and Krieg formed Eastern Front at the end of 2006 in Ipswich.
With an interest in the Second World War, and its effect on Europe, they were interested in exploring the history, through music; and from a subjective, personal and emotional, point of view.
Eastern Front takes a new approach to Black Metal – which has been labelled “War Torn Black Metal”. Musically, they retain a traditional Black Metal sound but experiment with other genres, like Doom, Death, folk and classical, to create a range of different atmospheres in their songs. Each song evokes the emotional experiences of battle, encompassing hope, pride, comradeship, misery, sorrow and victory.
